Where are the G-wagen Overlanders going this Memorial Day Weekend?

I'm planning a short trip into the Eureka Valley, to camp out at the Dunes before the Death Valley turns into a furnace in a few weeks. This trip should be very relaxed, with great photo opportunities along the route. Taking the adventure trailer up through the Steel Pass to the Marble Bath, a must be stop for all G-wagen pilots......and later down towards the Hot Springs - playing it by ear

Where are the other G-wagen pilots heading out for?

LOL! You are finding the serious weakness of the 463. Do Germans just not drink anything? :friday:

I am not real happy with the solution, but we used a Tuffy center console cupholder bracket and mounted it on the passenger side of the G console. It works great, but doesn't look as clean/factory as I would like. However, my bride is a happy girl- no drama on the Starbucks runs!

Sorry Charlie......

HA!

I expected as much. I am sure the German engineers just roll their eyes at the obscure requirement of the North American consumer :D

dude. you should have seen at my first dunkin' doghnuts run...

i got my cup of coffee, making a right hand turn and the phone rings. i put the coffee down grab the phone, then i realize its just sitting there while im turning off camber in traffic... grab coffee, drop phone, (dude screaming "zimm zimm") almost take out 3 cars...

i just had a complete brain lock. i havent owned a car without a cup holder since the 76 firebird formula 350 in high school.

i dont know what to do.

i was thinking of modding it where the ashtray is, but i found i can hide a smith j-frame under it, so i wanna keep that.

mine has 3 pop out cassette holder to the right of the radio. i notice some rigs have in dash pop out holders. (i think older fj 80's?) i was gonna scrounge one of those and get to cuttin maybe.

Hey Zimm,

Here's a pic of the aftermarket cup holder in mine. It works really great except when I have a tall cup and need to go in reverse. I know your dash layout is newer, not really sure if you'd have space for something like this. Just a thought.

LOL. Adventure shirts make me look fat. . .




Actually, I am down about 20 lbs. just hitting 226 this morning - feeling good, and ready for 2 months across eastern Europe, the Stans' and then Russia/Mongolia. Good times.
