315/75/16 tire size looks good. Anyone know if this is a stock suspension?

It's the Canyon cycles team van.

Iglhaut conversion - real 4X4.

315s require heavy body trimming and custom fender flairs.

Van Compass is doing a suspension upgrade with that size tire. They had to cut bumper and fender flare in addition to an extra 2" lift. They say an Aluminess front bumper will not have to be cut, but OEM does. Shoot them an email.

You can see the Van Compass upfitted vehicle in this post from Fitz. If you go upthread a few posts, you can read more about the suspension changes to accommodate the lift and the cutting needed to fit the tires.

We are making a 2" lift for the 4x4 to fit 315/75/16 tires with very little front fender trimming.

Hope to have the kit available late August.

2" Sprinter Lift Kit

Is the lift kit fully compatible with your Fox Shocks and/or Rear Leaf Spring additions?

The answer to my question above is yes.

I was at Van Compass this past Friday and got the opportunity to drive Rob's lifted red Sprinter. All I can say is IMPRESSIVE. It drove and felt much better than I expected, and the view from a couple of inches higher is much better! Now I've got something else to consider...

I am planning on getting all of VC's upgrades. Have they moved to Spokane yet or are they still in Atascadero?

Still in Atascadero finishing up, packing up and getting ready to go. Expect them to be out of pocket for the next 4-6 weeks as they move everything and get set up.

It will be worth the wait.
