LA-Artic Circle-LA

Just thought I'd give all the SMB Sprinter owners out there a vote of confidence with their rigs...just got back from a month long run up north attached is a photo and trip counter. The rig ran perfect not one issue in or out, anyone who has done it it's a haul. The aux 28g tank was great 700mi range along with Agile Rip those were the most noticeable upgrades I had done. Never used the winch or H1 jack along with Hi lift no flats and never got stuck, most nights were boondocking.

Can safely say we all like to set out for a trip and return without incident - Glad it went so well for you.
Really like the Arctic Circle pic!

Fantastic trip! We think next summer is our Alaska adventure, hoping it is as trouble free as yours!

Just finished our fourth trip to the far north, three to Alaska and one to Tuktoyaktuk, NWT. 2009 Sprinter SMB is still going strong, after nearly 160k miles. The only issues have been windshield chip repairs. The Arctic rocks!

Oh ya, Arctic rocks forgot to mention I did suffer from two rock chips and a full windshield spider crack still driving with all of the above. Hate to replace the OEM front windshield $$ plus I had a UV and heat shield coating installed on it. All from the Dalton Hwy.
