    Mercedes charges a fortune for the 4x4 option for the Sprinter ($20,000 if I remember correctly). So it would turn a $45K truck into a $65K model.

Be skeptical, and follow discussions on sprinter-source.com to get the latest. Maybe this year is the year.
    FWIW, the manufacturer rep at Sprinterfest East said a 4matic based system should be available in 18 months or so, which also coincides with the next gen 4 cylinder turbodiesel.

    Add what? That's the same link as above, with the same gray one-off T1N conversion that's been around for years (and was canceled when Mercedes-Benz told the OEM supplier not to sell parts for conversions in the USA.)

    It's the same link, but not the same conversion. After the SportsVans converrsion became unavailable, the staff at the SprinterStore engineered their own conversion and spent a a year or so refining it in an NCV3. They are now converting trucks for customers.

    The link you cited now has considerable information about the new conversion. If you have not been there recently, you might find it interesting to see the details of the current product.
