Re: 300GD W460 diesel

With a stickshift and low RPMs you might get that. I average 20 mpg, but got 24.5 on a long trip (Oregon). That was a slow & steady trip though.

Clearance varies a bit by model. On mine, the 265/75R16 rub slightly on the right side. This is due to the intercooler pipes.

Re: 2010 G55 differential switches inverted?

The switch block has a simple push-in mount. Someone pulled it out and turned it around when re-installing. It shouldn't be too hard to get out. If all else fails, slip some dental floss behind the edge and pull straight out.

Re: Brake Advice

In my opinion, those surfaces are too rough and will damage new seals. Depending on the location in the brake plumbing, that coupler is either a one way valve or a pressure limiting valve. I think these can be disassembled and checked. Given the corrosion elsewhere, an inspection might be a good idea.

Re: $400 for 4 Ashtaroth Alloy Wheels, black

you don't want 18s on an offroader like that bro.... stick with 15 or 16s unless you want them just for snow tires, then they would be alright I guess Agreed. I'd go with smaller rims if I could, but 16" is the limit on mine. That mostly blue G really ought to get a full chalkboard repaint. No...

Re: Opinion on 300GD

It does appear to be in nice condition. The W463 tail lights mean that it has no reverse lights.

Re: Huston, Texas guys...can you look at a truck for me??

Comparing what you have with this, I'd keep the one you have. Better quality, fewer miles, easier to diagnose.
