Mercedes Sprinter Q&A

Agile Off Road is here to answer your Mercedes-Benz Sprinter questions! Feel free to submit new questions in the comments below!

Question: What is the largest tire I can fit on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter?

Here are the largest recommended tires sizes for the second generation (2007-2014, 2015+) Mercedes-Benz Sprinters:

  • 2WD 2500 series – 265/70/17
  • 4WD 2500 series – 275/70/17
  • 2WD & 4WD 3500 series – 235/85/16

Question: Which Sprinters will the aluminum replacement fuel tank fit on?

The ACGB Replacement Fuel Tank is compatible with all 2nd generation (NCV3 2007 – 2018) & 3rd generation (VS30 2019+) Mercedes Sprinter 2500 & 3500s. This tank’s footprint starts where the factory tank is located and extends all the way thru the cavity outside of the driver side frame rail. Because of this no heaters, tanks, or batteries can be mounted on that side under the van.

Our Auxiliary Fuel Tanks are a great alternative for those looking to extend the Sprinter’s fuel range.

Question: Does Agile make a 4×4 conversion kit for Mercedes-Benz Sprinter?

No, not at this time. Because Mercedes makes 4 wheel drive an option from the factory we felt it was best to leave the design & installation of the system to them so we could focus on improving other areas such as suspension.

Question: Is there a manual or air locker available for the Mercedes Sprinter rear differential?

At this time there is no aftermarket locker available in the U.S for second generation (NCV3 2006-2018) Sprinters. The rear end is manufactured by Mercedes. Gear ratio is either 3.92 or 4.18 depending on spec.

    I was referred to you by Jim at Mercedes in Carlsbad. I want to buy a 2 wheel drive 2019 high roof 144 passenger van to do a conversion, and he said I should talk with you about levelling the front for a better look and feel of the drive. I’m not sure the terminology but could you please send me the price on what you believe would be the best system. (I have always owned 4×4, but this will be my first 2 wheel drive and I just want the best drive feel with some elevation). I am also interested in purchasing some wheels and BFG tires from you to make the vehicle look more aggressive).
    A quote for the kit, 265/70/17 BFG tires, and an aggressive rim would be great.
    Thanks,
    Eric Lizerbram

    Is agile off road going to make a rip kit for the 2020 sprinter 3500xd dually long body 4×4 thank you

    • Elikem Moten 4 months ago

      Jeffrey, because the next generation 3500 doesn’t currently exist we cannot answer that question right now. The only next-generation Sprinter we’ve developed a RIP-Kit for is the 2019 2WD 2500 (because it’s the only model in production). As more models become available we’ll have more answers.

    Is it possible to put a manual / or Air locker , in the Mercedes sprinter rear wheel drive? ( does it have a Dana? Or what’s the gear size? )

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 3 months ago

      Joe at this time there is no aftermarket locker available in the U.S. The rear end is a Mercedes unit. Gear ratio is either 3.92 or 4.18 depending on spec.

    There are two RIP packages listed for the Sprinter 2500. The kit for the rear looks the same, but the different kits for the front are listed below;

    a) Bilstein front struts w/ Agile coil assist spring kit
    b) Re-use OEM front struts w/ Agile coil assist spring & Agile auxiliary mount front shock kit

    Option (b) is $800 more expensive (with install). Can you describe the advantages of option (b) and what aspects might help make the decision?

    Thanks!

      Good question Alan…

      Option A is our Sprinter 2500 2WD Kit. At this time Bilstein front struts are only available for two-wheel drive Sprinter vans.

      Option B is our Sprinter 2500 4WD kit. The Agile MAX Auxiliary Front Shock kit is only compatible with four-wheel drive Sprinter vans.

      Please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@agileoffroad.com with further questions.

    We have recently purchased a Winnebago Navion 24D on a Mercedes Sprinter (2018). We are toying with the idea of replacing the shocks for a better ride and to assist in eliminating sway when driving. What shocks do you recommend?

    • Elikem - AgileOffRoad.com 4 weeks ago

      Nancy, our Agile tuned Fox 2.5 Shocks are a very popular solution to eliminate sway and improve driveability for Sprinter 3500 RVs. Click here for more info!
