I went and checked out the refaced G500 today. I like it for $84k. I think I may go ahead and take the plunge.
get a used 1 and s/c it (with kleeman this time :D ), perfect sleeper


unless you lease :dunno:

I've never been too hot over them. If you need an SUV, go for the ML63...that's just my opinion though.
if you really need an suv go for the gl450

from what ive been told from people who have owned/driven the g and my personal experience (3 hours or so in a g55k), its a piece of shit for regular driving. the ride is wayyyyyyyy to bumpy and its very small inside. the layout is uncomfortable and its got c class navi/buttons. it is (g55)unbeatable for presence though. 500 is just isnt worth the $ and sacrifices over a gl or even an ml.(unless you s/c it :D :wave: )

dude jangster, i'm 100% with you with the G. it was never meant to be a cruiser. roughs ass ride and rattles like a [email protected]#er but you buy that thing for one reason only, taking it everywhere your 211 can't. i never knew there is an 07 model though? i didn't like the gl's until i so one dumped(airmatic was broken) so if you go that route and ELM is definitely a requirement. they are supposed to be really good for offroading to, lost of suspension travel but the g's are way more solid. just promise me you wont put gay ass 26 bling wheels on it like alot of people do. it defeats the whole purpose of owning a g.

LOL, Roupin. The Quadra Drive is the shit, but the new jeeps are independent axles in the front. The G will actually out run a Jeep offroad.

Yo Assan, never fear, baby. The G will go offroad as much as my Jeep does. No bling in any of my cars.

Not much to save, really. A Commander 9like mine) all rigged out is about $50 and a G500 is $85. Also, the newere Jeeps just aren't rugged as the old ones and I don't want a wrangler.

The track car is still a possibility.
