Default What years body fits my 08?

I have some rust damage on my slider and one rear door, and I can fix it but replacement is also an option. What years can I salvage from?

Well I can sell you a whole 2008 rust free rolling chassis /cargo van body with title for $1500.
A Colorado unit and no need for Vic's Rusteeze remedies.
Even the seats are like new.

Dang thatís a great deal. Will it fit in a large amazon box? This body is actually in decent chase just has some cancer here and there. Iíll probably bubble gum/spackle it up and slap some vinyl wrap on it to cap it off.

I still canít get over how well the whizzer wheel worked on those decals man. Just amazing.

I believe 2007 - 2013 will be compatible. 2014 - 2017 might also be OK for those particular parts. I know the front end has some differences from the earlier years, but I think the rest of the body is the same.

I agree. Apart from the front all panels are the same 2006 - 2018
My front doors were OK but I got a pair of brand new 2017 doors, complete with glass, motors etc for about $140. Not worth messing with paint at that price. But they are seriously heavy, not something I'd do on my own again!!

International issues strike again. In the US, 2006 models were still the T1N. We didn't get the NCV3 until 2007. I believe the OP is in the US, so he needs to look at 2007 or newer. The 2006 doors won't work for him.

Ha yes, definitely can’t fit an 06 parts in this country. Man sometimes I feel like Mercedes hates Americans. They hold back all the good stuff! Wouldn’t even put their own name on the vans. I’m still bitter about the 4x4 thing mostly.
