I usually park at the back of the store when I come in for work, but today I thought I'd park a little closer.



Here's some more pics.





I must say, I'm impressed. I knew Mercedes had some cool 4x4 rigs, but I've never actually seen one up close. It just looks tough. I may have to dream about affording one of these things sometime in the next decade. Your guys' thoughts on the competition?

Tad had one very similar to that one. I know it weighs about 2000 pounds more than a first gen Trooper.

Talk about accessories, you can get helicopter lifting points, a turret for the zombie attack...

Love the vehicle as well but I'd not advertise that it's powered by vegetable oil. IF ever I had a vehicle powered by veggie oil I'd keep it as secretive as I could. In more then one case, the government comes down on you asking "Where's my road use tax", generally funded by the tax on fuel you are no longer buying.

I've had one Mercedes Benz car, and that was all I'll ever need. Like a boat owner, my two happiest days were the day I bought it, and the day I sold it. EVERYTHING is over-engineered--not overbuilt, just intentionally complicated, like some kind of testament to their engineering prowess. As Scotty said in Star Trek: The Search for Spock:
"The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain!"

And they're REALLY proud of their replacement parts.

Aside from the height of the roof, they seem to have very very similar dimensions. It's cool to see a side by side. I love G wagons too. I saw a SWB with a canvas soft top in my area the other day. It was all done up military style. I was like :shock:

Ruining cool vehicles from coast to coast.

Super cool 4x4 though. I like the hight of the cab
