I wonder if those rear bumpers would bolt onto any 463 or if there are different brackets welded to the rear bumper tubes. I suppose I could have checked, but I didn't think of it at the time.

Love the no carpet!!
I thought it had the wood floor in the cargo area (is that an option)?

Good news, it's still available for order on the G350D Professional, you just have to order the right code with the C-rails.

Does anyone know if a 17” wheel will fit on a G550 or G55? I know the Raceline wheel that Thor sells will but I’m curious to know if other 17” wheels will fit?

The AMG versions tended to need the larger wheel to fit the special brakes. The more plebeian versions can even fit certain 16" wheels. You might need to specify the year too.

12 months back when I was extensively researching this, I could not find any 17" wheel to fit on my G55 other than the Thor ones (which were super expensive for me to import to Europe).

Thor’s 17” wheels are not DOT rated so not for on-road use only off-road

I wonder about any choice for 17 inches when most of the tire sizes are easily available in 16 or 18.... Ashtaroth being available in 18’´ I would rather choose that path - just my 2 cents
