First post here, although I have gained a lot of information over the year from the forum. My background is primarily in restoring and enjoying Rovers from Series 1 through Defenders.
That is my truck.
-As for the 4 front bolt holes below the reflectors, 2 per side, I have fastened two solutions: 1) stainless washers, cut to fit, powder coated black, and easily attached leaving 4 black covers with stainless bolts in the centers vs white plastic 3d printed rectangular plate, one per side that bolts through. I did not intend to insert my photoshopped mockup in the auction that removed these holes, as clearly I did not hide them on any other photo. I had made that edited photo when consulting with a local 3d print shop. Original updated in ad.
-The truck handles incredibly smoothly on the KM2 around town and on the highway. I have not owned a G550 previously to compare to bone stock. No complaints from the wife, who daily drives a D110. I am comparing it to a 2013 Rubicon Unlimited on KM2 and a D90 built to accomidate 315/75r16 Duratracs. Anyone in the Boston area is welcome to swing by just to look at the truck, take it for a ride, and talk shop.
-I am in no way connected to Mastodon. Tim royally screwed us over on a 240gd LWB soft top. Luckily for this truck, he did very little besides the w461 front clip, the suspension and springs, steel bumpers, ladder and rack, and the 16" black wheels on what was a previously stock 2011 G550. More to say about Tim, but I am awaiting a decision on a large credit card chargeback first.
-Only reason for the sale is to make room for another incoming G.
