Re: G pictures, post them here!

So what's with the doubler plate on the chassis? Rusted chassis rails as well?

Re: 1980 230G build

Looked all over the internet to find a replacement gear for this. It seems it was also used in VW Vanagon vans from the 70s but their gears are super rare and no longer in production as well. Someone makes a gear out of brass but it's like $120 and I'm cheap. Decided to try and design one myself fo...

1979 MB 280GE BGS in the 'Grenzland'.
Wrong border I guess, but still though it'd make a nice picture.

Re: frame extensions part number

I think there are some brackets that you can add to extend the back of the frame in order to support a longer tray.. it is not legal to make this work in germany , MB will not allow you to weld on their chassis because of crash test safety , parts like that at not avail . many people don`t care and...

Re: frame extensions part number

Mauricio, you may be thinking of some kind or extension for the rear bumpers with integrated tail lights. Yes Chris that’s it,,, You mean like these single cabs 290GD's have on the rear? https://www.defensie.nl/onderwerpen/materieel/voertuigen/mercedes-benz-290gd These are bolt on extensions to set...

Re: Warn Winch and Tow Pin Bumper Mount

Nice work Bram. So, the set up you have shown above does not use the tow pin as an attachment. That is a STOUT looking set up. Looks like it bolts to the frame, right? The tow pin is used as a locater, and tow pin is still available to be used with winch installed. It uses kind of c-clamps around t...

Re: For Sale: 37:7 (5,28:1) ring and pinion sets incl. bearings

Still have it, nicely stored in my house and kept warm and safe.

Anyone looking for a lower Ring and Pinion set this may be the set you need. Perfect for restoring torque after installing bigger tires!

Feel free to make me an offer.

Re: Warn Winch and Tow Pin Bumper Mount

So the 290GD that I will be taking delivery of “soon” (see COVID-19 news reports!), also has the tow pin bumper (see photos) and G-Mercedes also makes a detachable receiver for a winch. I was wondering how solid/strong these are and are there any trade-offs to using this style vs. a more permanent ...
