Mercedes Sprinter Photography Adventure Van: Light Bars Have Implications for the Turbo Intercooler

My 2017 Mercedes Sprinter cargo van came with the halogen headlights, which are not particularly bright. In the 6th decade of my life, my eyes just don’t see as well at night, and I do not find the halogen lights adequate for driving.

In particular, a dark asphalt road at night at 55 mph is too risky in not seeing a deer in time. At 65 or 70 mph on a concrete or grayish freeway it is not too bad because the road surface is medium-tone (not black), but still on the edge of acceptable out of the city, where suicidal deer often graze right at road’s edge.

So I settled on installing the Rigid Industries RDS-Series 20" light bar near the front bumper. But while this looked great, it is not without implications in blocking the airflow to the turbo intercooler. I ultimately proceeded, but only after some research as to the impact
