I wanted some protection for my under carriage on my 2023 Entegra Launch 4x4, but didn’t want to add a lot of weight. I also wanted a bolt on solution with no modifications to the OEM Mercedes chassis. I found this VanSpeed product by seeing Orange13’s YouTube video. I liked the product and decided to buy it in safety orange. Ordering and shipping were seamless. Install was pretty straightforward using Orange13’s YouTube video. I used some aluminum sheet to blackout the logo cutout to provide additional protection to the second alternator on my van. I think the overall appearance on my van looks awesome. I would highly recommend this product, in any color.
We don’t do any serious off-roading in our Sprinter 4x4, but we do take it on some fairly rough forest service roads on occasion. I also have been searching for a way to provide some protection to the engine components from road salt etc, But, not having a way to lift the van, I’ve been searching for something that was easy to install, and did require any grinding or drilling. This skid plate seems to fit the bill. The shipping time was fast and the packaging was outstanding. Like others have said - there are no installation instructions included - which is a bummer. But I had watched a video on YouTube, and that, coupled with studying the one photograph they give you of the skid plate, was enough to get it installed. The components are well made. While it is a bit of struggle installing this without lifting the van, it is doable. It’s just close quarters at times. My only real difficulty came with trying to align the holes where the front plate joins the back plate, but eventually I was able to jiggle and maneuver everything in place. I am very happy with the look of the skid plate. It should offer some impact protection and also keep the engine components protected from road salt, etc. I have not yet been able to tell if it helps with road noise, or with MPG. But theoretically both are possibilities.
