Re: Sprinter...talk Me Out Of It...


I get cheap ink. For what I paid for 4 large black and 3 sets or normal colors I couldn't even by an OEM normal sized black cartridge.

But this is the only printer I've been successful in buying 3rd party ink for. The other times it sucks.

Try the generic toner cartridges they sell on amazon. Two of the high capacity ones for less than the small one from brother.

Cab and chassy is probably under 40K USD, the 4x4 is more money, as is the van body since the CC is stepped to clear the transfer case. You could probably get a new one with body for well under 50K US.

More in my range. We only do 10k a year max. Was also thinking about trying to find a 16 cube van with about 20-25k miles on it.

The cut away cube van was nice because I could jump in the cab with something and toss it through the pass-through into the back...but my God the turning radius of this cab over is incredible.

Almost through a full tank, looks like it may get 14MPG....not bad!

It's more maneuverable than a regular van and tons more than a pickup
At times you feel like you are going sideways when turning

It's a pleasure to drive until you hit a pothole or speed bump.

If you put a ladder rack on top will you have a permanent ladder attached to the back to get up to the top ?

Yep, that was actually part of my original design until I scrapped the idea for reduced height. Here's a pic of the one they we're going to copy. Permanent ladder and catwalk with 4 horizontals.
