Mercedes Goes Extreme With Sprinter Concept

Sprinter Monster Pickup

Although Mercedes-Benz made some news at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show with the introduction of a no-frills Sprinter van called the Worker, the real attention-grabber was an 8-foot-tall dump-truck concept version of the Sprinter. The Sprinter Extreme Concept is the coolest heavy-duty pickup truck we've seen in a long time.

Built on a slime-green Sprinter 3500 chassis cab, the truck's main feature is an Italian-sourced "tipper bed" that allows the three-way tipping aluminum bed to dump cargo behind, on the right or the left side of the truck thanks to a 2.5-ton hydraulic ram under the truck.

Longtime Mercedes-Benz performance modifier RENNtech gave the bed a customized look but it still retains its three-way dumping capabilities. RENNtech also added a custom roof rack and six spotlights for forward illumination, two side spotlights and included several fog lights to cut through bad weather. Our favorite features are the dual 4-inch vertically mounted exhaust stacks and the six bead-lock wheels on a dualie with mud tires.

The monster dump truck is wrapped in green and yellow graphics, and uses a light suspension lift for a little more ground clearance and enough protected space for two large, lockable storage bins behind the cab. Mercedes has no plans to offer anything like this concept, but we wish it would. In fact, we think this might be a great idea for one of the one-ton truckmakers to adopt.

Now that looks cool.

Every driveway needs one!

You guys can see how these are the "Euro HDs".

All it needs is a Merc 3 litre V6 diesel and you have a very economical truck, that can work.

Better still is the Iveco Daily off roader. I has 36 gear ratios to play with, and they look great, I've seen a few here on the road.

@ Big Al - This will be my next truck.

Love the fake mud and styrofoam boulders in the box.

I wonder how much it can tow or haul?

those mesh dump box sides would let all of Big Al's crap leak out before it got to "dump"

LMFAO

LuLu_BC we know it's not a Magic Dust Ford. No need to remind us.

Since this is one of the few comment sections with only 1 page of comments I can send a message to that low IQ fool Johnny Doe.

You keep calling Alluminum-bodied Fords "beer can". Apparently hes too much of a halfwit to know what beer cans are actually made out of.

Beer cans are made out of STEEL line with a thin layer of tin.

So every time you say beer can Ford, you are just making yourself like more of an idiot than you actually are, (which is really saying something in your case)

This is an actual MB Sprinter Dump Truck. Normally the Truck has a 6,000lb payload, as a Dump Truck about 4.5 to 5,000lbs

@ Dafuq Um no I already looked this up months ago when you was using the GoDawgs name Ford clown.


"The only well almost the only idiot here is you GoDawgs.

"In Canada, the standard size was previously 10 Imperial fluid ounces (284 ml), later redefined and labeled as 280 ml in around 1980. This size was commonly used with steel beverage cans in the 1970s and early 1980s. However, the US standard 355 ml can size was standardized in the 1980s and 1990s, upon the conversion from steel to aluminium.

Most metal beverage cans manufactured in the United States are made of aluminium,[4] whereas in some parts of Europe and Asia approximately 55 percent are made of steel and 45 percent are aluminium alloy. Steel cans often have a top made of aluminium. The aluminium used in United States and Canada are alloys containing 92.5% to 97% aluminium, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beverage_can

There I looked it up for you GoDawgs, so you don't have to look like a idiot anymore. Steel beer cans die in the 90s in the US and Rarely still used in a few other countrys, but you know what the steel cans still have aluminium tops. Maybe you should of looked it up, instead of looking like a moron. So yeah beer can F150.

Fabrication process

Modern cans are generally produced through a mechanical cold forming process that starts with punching a flat blank from very stiff cold-rolled sheet. This sheet is typically alloy 3104-H19 or 3004-H19, which is aluminum with about 1% manganese and 1% magnesium to give it strength and formability. The flat blank is first formed into a cup about three inches in diameter. This cup is then pushed through a different forming process called "ironing" which forms the can. The bottom of the can is also shaped at this time. The malleable metal deforms into the shape of an open-top can. With the sophisticated technology of the dies and the forming machines, the side of the can is significantly thinner than either the top and bottom areas, where stiffness is required.

Plain lids (known as shells) are stamped from a coil of aluminum, typically alloy 5182-H48, and transferred to another press that converts them to easy-open ends. This press is known as a conversion press which forms an integral rivet button in the lid and scores the opening, while concurrently forming the tabs in another die from a separate strip of aluminum.

Again I see no steel with a thin layer of tin. It looks like you are low IQ Ford clown fool. Get over yourself.

@johnny blow..... Get over yourself for a change. That would be a dream.

truck crazy Ford clown say something better then what my dog could come up with for a change. Oh wait forgot Ford clowns are low IQ, still think it's 1970s and beer cans are still made of steel LMBO!

@johnny blow, you need to learn how to write and learn how to spell. Can't hardly read all this crap you are spewing. When they said brains, you thought they said Little Short Yellow STOOL Bus and you grabbed it and went on down!

Yeah what ever it is you got to say to make yourself feel better kid.

It worked!!! I always feel better when I tell the truth and the other person listens. Whether it helps or not is a different story.

I thought someone had already taken out the GARBAGE but I can see the GARBAGE is still around. Sad.

@rolling can of crap, i sure would hate to be you. All i can do is try to forgive you. Its hard but thats what a real person does. You make these statements without realizing what you do to others. Lord have mercy on you. You must realize you can also wind up like my Cousin and i guess that would be Karma. That happening to you would he no real big loss to me but maybe you have family that would be impacted. I have no use for you. GARBAGE.

@all the other so-called gm guys on here, I'm just so glad this rolling can of crap is on your side. Says a lot about you guys and says a lot about gm. It comes on here and says he hopes my kids wind up dead like my Cousin from driving gm products. My kids don't drive gm products. They are not that stupid. Hope you guys like what he said. He's GARBAGE.

@GARBAGE, got something for you.

I've posted that all over the net; everyone has a great laugh....what an idiot!

That's because you are a pale white skinned loser with no friends and haven't seen the sun in a long time. You have no ability to step away from your pethetic computer world to make actual friends to do real fun stuff in the actual world. You will not feel the fantastic warmth of a wet pink vag around your hand beaten pecker because you are a loser troulllll. Just remember when life has you down, go with the grain. That is for keeps.
