    Overland Journal: G-Wagen

    Check the G Wagen forums outside of expedition portal and you should be able to find the answer. Lots of people have removed them so they don't get stuck in the backcountry.

    Importing a G?

    I don't have any experience with Mastodon, but if anyone is considering them do yourself a quick favor and do some searches here and also on clubgwagen. It seems that all is not right with them, and I will leave it at that.
