Jacked-Up Sprinter is a Righteous Rig for Vikings

Mercedes-Benz Sprinter

Having worked on numerous Jeeps, outfitter Cliffride transforms a Sprinter into an Icelandic crawler.

We’re here live at SEMA 2018, checking out all of the amazing Mercedes builds in between watching Britney Spears rock her residency and cheering on the Golden Knights.

And speaking of action on the ice, California Jeep outfitter Cliffride took all of their knowledge from years of working on Wranglers, and poured it all into this Sprinter dubbed ‘Icelander.’

Rolling on fat tires, this custom Sprinter is ready to traverse the snowy lands of Iceland, or, perhaps, crawl across the Arctic Ocean to the North Pole.

Inside the arctic crawler is a Fosgate sound system, in case you ever want to play “Immigrant Song” by Led Zeppelin on repeat as you charge through the ice and snow like Thor on a battle horse.

It’s good to see a builder like Cliffride get out of its comfort zone to build this bonkers Sprinter. We think there are a few other Benzes they could work their off-roading magic upon, though, like the G-Wagen or GLA.
