This. This is true! I think he might have some drawers(or a drawer) for sale. Pistol safe would be sweet. Personally I think Karl(G-Wagen Access) ladder is the best out there, no real reason to re-invent the wheel there.You should see mgmetalwork's fabrication shop and skills! He can make anything. Now all we got to do is get him to prototype some cool stuff for the G's (rear drawers, rear ladder, pistol safe, 2nd battery box, etc.).
This is true! Karl already has a several top notch products on the market.This. This is true! I think he might have some drawers(or a drawer) for sale. Pistol safe would be sweet. Personally I think Karl(G-Wagen Access) ladder is the best out there, no real reason to re-invent the wheel there.
I agree, his bumper looks very nice.This is true! Karl already has a several top notch products on the market.
One item I would like to see is a front bumper.. aesthetically Something close to ARB style that wraps around to protect the fenders/front sides a bit more with a built in bull bar. I know some have retrofitted a Toyota LC ARB to their g, but it stuck out a bit too much and killed the approach angle. The best bumper I have seen to date in this style was WarnerD9's but he had it custom fabbed @ CBI.
First time hearing of it honestly... Also cant seem to find any pictures on google images of it on a g thats not some overly body modified thing that looks like it belongs at sema or the local expensive mallI agree, his bumper looks very nice.
You've seen the Ironman bumper? Reminds me of an ARB? No idea on quality.

Also only place selling them says its for 2011+, I have a 2005
Sorry MG if this is thread jacking! mk216v looked on both and no dice, plus looked on that site but its marked as 2011+http://www.axsoffroad.com/product-p/bbcd036.htm
IIRC there was another thread about this, maybe on Clubgwagen or P3?
I don't know what would make it '11+ specific, must be something.Sorry MG if this is thread jacking! mk216v looked on both and no dice, plus looked on that site but its marked as 2011+
I have been playing phone tag with CBI the last few days but if MG did come up with something and price was in reason I would be down
One of the best (and most reliable?) vehicles you've ever owned??It's been a long time... Our G has performed very well pulling mostly commuter duty for my wife for the last several years. We've put 100k miles on the rig and had only a few little things to fix along the way. All in all...it's been one of the best vehicles I've ever owned.
Recently had a small fender bender (for the G it was small...the other car looks like it got bent in half). The damage was minor and limited to the fender, flare, lower fender, bumper and headlight. In my research to find a front bumper, it turns out it was going to be cheaper to install an ARB than find all the pieces needed for a factory bumper (plus paint match). So that's what I did...
This is the same bumper that others have used on G. It's for a 70 series Toyota. The mounting surfaces are only 1" off between the Toyota frame and the G. Pretty simple brackets to make it fit up. I did have to make another bracket for the oil cooler but it was simple enough.

Btw... The Cooper tires I put on earlier in this thread will make it to the spring before we have to replace them. They've been AMAZING tires! We rotate in the spare frequently and we've gotten our money's worth for sure!

ARB looks awesome!! Moar pics please!
PS--Cooper ST Maxx, yes?
My O'erlandewagen is up for sale. I forget how many miles have been added to it, front end has been crunched, selling for about the same as I sold it for 10yrs ago. <big eyes> Talk about depreciation having been depreciated already!I agree, my 2002 G500 was driven for 60K miles over 4 years and was absolutely the easiest car to maintain and use. I sold it for $2k less than I paid for it after doubling the mileage.
My 1999 G500 is awesome as well, eight years of ownership, 90K miles added to the odo, and always good for a 3000 mile road trip at the drop of a hat.
That ARB bumper looks awesome BTW
