Can you tell who did this 4wd conversion?

This photo and others came in showing the Aluminess bumpers for Sprinters. It is owned by a mystery (so far) California owner. No conversion on the inside.



Regards,

Keith

I have emailed aluminess and await their answer. Here are a few more shots.




The photos came in an email from Aluminess (not to me) with this, "The rear bumper picture shows a winch compartment as the customer wanted it customized for a winch and did away with the hitch. Our rear bumper design will not include a winch. The cost of the front bumper is $1,995 and the rear with swing arms and standard box is $2,375."

Regards,

Keith

They have nothing about this on their website. All they say is they can do Sprinters.

This one has not had a conversion done yet. The inside is basical stock.

Yep, soon as I find out who did this I am setting up an appointment right after I win the lottery.

Salem Krogger does convert Sprinters to 4x4 by adding a Ford front axel and transfert.
I seen them when visited them.

They also do a conversion with European (Mercedes?) parts, but it was more money.
