    Any tips for suspension spacer install?

    My 2005 was really difficult to get the lower shock bolt off. First tried using hand tools and it was impossible. I ended up using a 1/2" impact with a small air compressor and it was barely enough, but worked (1/2" harbor freight earthquake xt impact + harbor freight small air compressor). My...

    Mini Restore (deferred maintenance) and new toys for my 05 G500 Grand Edition

    Great. Thanks for the detail. I figured there would be a simple solution for this. Although I do love a good custom project, I'll save my time and just pick this up in the near future and spend that time designing other things. Does it come assembled in a big crate?

    Thanks for the updates. I'll be watching closely to see what you come up with on the exhaust side (maybe paired with some sliders?). I want to keep the AMG exhuast tone but want it a little bit louder, but not as loud as some of the new exhausts designed for the 63's, which on the 55 are way too...

    Mini Restore (deferred maintenance) and new toys for my 05 G500 Grand Edition

    Sounds like a great problem to have! So far my son (2 years old) loves the truck so hope he says the same thing in the future when I start taking him camping. What's your opinion on the Frontrunner drawer system? Did you drill through the cargo floor to mount it? I'm debating purchasing it or...

    Mini Restore (deferred maintenance) and new toys for my 05 G500 Grand Edition

    very cool. thanks for the input. The more I think about it and how I want to build a off road/overlanding rig for the future, it's becoming and more and more attractive to pick up a second G500 or older for a wild off road build and keeping the G55 mild for mostly on-road duty. How did you...

    Mini Restore (deferred maintenance) and new toys for my 05 G500 Grand Edition

    Great work! What are your impressions of the Poly Bushings + Caster Correction Bushings? How do they feel driving and how was the install? Also, how was the install on the mudflaps?

    2013 G63 AMG ORC springs and King Shocks install

    Your assessment/concern completely makes sense to me. My wonder now is how this differs to earlier year trucks. I'll be tackling some suspension upgrades on my 2005 G55 in a few weeks so I'll take a look and some pictures what it looks like to compare. Thanks for the info on the length of your...

    2013 G63 AMG ORC springs and King Shocks install

    Thanks for the detailed write up. I wonder what other W463 chassis have this issue vs your 2016 G63. Does the secondary mount go on the other side of the king shock upper mount eye? I would be concerned with the upper shock mounting if the OE design was to mount the top of the shock in a double...

    02 G500?

    You can also find much better examples for the price. That one you linked was a 2002 G500 with ~120k miles going for $29k. Should be closer to the $25k range if it was in good condition. There are relatively good deals to be had for G wagons now. Just keep looking. Main rule when looking at...

    2005 G500 build by MG Metalworks

    Thanks for the info. Found the part on gwagonparts.com. $450 sure is spendy for a set of door hinges so I'll pass for now. Great build.

    2005 G500 build by MG Metalworks

    Any more info on how you accomplished the fully opening rear door? I would love this to help loading my 2 year old in the back.

    Love what you've done with your truck. Any updates? Those LP6 Pros as headlights you did for the customer G really looks wicked, but probably not that practical. Also, those beadlock TE37s are just awesome.
