Sprinter Traction Boost (LSD):

  • The overall crowd pleaser and essential to getting off road and off grid - the OHV Traction-Boost Limited Slip Differential. Our customers actually use their vans out in the desert or backcountry all year round. Adding this product will enable them to avoid embarrassing situations like getting stuck in the ski-resort parking lot.

  • From the start, we needed a solution that didn’t affect the tire wear, road noise, or fuel economy. Our Traction Boost Limited-Slip Differential accomplishes these goals while providing the optimum balance of traction, and it’s something you don’t have to worry about turning on/off or affecting the driving dynamics of your van. It simply works in all situations, without any user or electronic interface needed.

  • See video linked here for more details.
