Factory Sprinter 4x4 SMB schedules and options

For those, like me, who are waiting on a backordered SMB Sprinter 4x4 I thought I would start a thread to share news and also discuss some of the open issues (like aftermarket tire sizes).

From my calls this week with Sportsmobile, they say the MB has confirmed all 35 of their allotment for build in the second quarter. Beyond that, MB hasn't yet provided a build date and some of the backlog will likely go into the 2016 model year which will start shipping around October.

SMB is building a demo shown in this recent photo.

Larger tires are definitely an option but I'm not sure how much larger yet.

It would be nice to get feedback on what is working from the early deliveries.

Thanks. Those 265/75R16 Duratecs look much more capable. It sounds like SMB may be putting on BFG KO2s on their demo but I'm not sure what size yet.
