There aren't that many 118 T1N's in North America. Just narrowing it down to the 118 body style registered in the area may give them what they need. That single roof rack is also a distinguishing feature.

The black rocker panels is also a distinguishing feature

I hope he gets severe LHM and the his crank break into 2 pieces and then it start leaks so FD and PD will arrive to clean this POS man and his van.

Here since 2006
California vehicles need to have a front license plate. This Sprinter may be from out of state.

2003 - 2006 registered as a Dodge Sprinter.
Yep. The headlights aren't Freightliner.

:hmmm:

If the wheels/tires can be established as 15" would that narrow it down to pre 2004?

He’s just this guy, you know?
I think the 140 and 158 single rear wheels were 16". I don't think 118 came with 16". Someone will probably correct me.
You’re correct. The 118 rides lower and only came with 15” wheels. What I don’t know is if they put rear flares on the 118 for any years, as a way of narrowing down the vehicle year.

If you're talking about the gray flares over the wheel arches, I have never seen any on 118's. I have them on my 140's and at one point I wanted to remove them because it looked odd to me.

Has anyone called the police and asked if they are looking at registrations if they realize that it's a
Dodge or Freightliner with a modified MB symbol/badge on the front?
They may be looking for a 2002-2006 Mercedes Sprinter, and their never were any T1N Mercedes
Sprinters in the USA......only Freightliner and the Dodge.
I think the "grill/emblem kit" to convert USA Spec Freightliner and Dodge T1N's to Mercedes may
have also changed the area around the headlights.

Good points about checking with police. :thumbup:

The Freightliner headlight units are a different shape. The Mercedes conversion kits are Dodge/Freightliner specific unless you change over the headlight unit$.

I am sure if they wanted to locate the individual they could.
In any case all they have to do is contact Child Support Services and they will fill find him in five minutes.
Its that simple!

All,
I sent an email to one of the other Los Gatos-Monte Sereno PD property officers who had an email address
on their website and just got a nice thank you from one of the investigators.
I included all of the concerns that we collectively came up with here.
