Yes Chris that’s it,,,

You mean like these single cabs 290GD's have on the rear? ... benz-290gd
These are bolt on extensions to set the rear bumper back some distance.

Here's a VIN for such a G (250GD Sanikoffer):

Or here:

And here's a such a set if this is what you mean (sold by now):

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 weld what they want ! there is a paper from MB that it is only allowed to weld outside the ladder , like bodymounts , shock absorber mounts and coul spring mounts and these are avail as spares .

mfg. guido .

I think in the Netherlands you can do frame welding and repairs without too much trouble if you weld outside of the axle mounts. So any rusted frame parts in front of front axle or behind rear axle would be legal.
So stretching the wheelbase would require a specialist company or additional inspections and can't be done by an average person.
