Newbie w/GL450

Hi all, I'm the proud new owner of a 2007 GL450 CPO. Silver/Black. 42k miles. Got the CPO extended a year in the final negotiation with my new best bud, Jim Burns at MB of Danbury (CT).

Looking to do some mods and find some sources for parts. I've already ordered the Tyndarides 20's which were an upgrade in 07. Now trying to find running boards at a decent price, underride protection front/rear, chrome lower window moldings, bumper guard w/fog lights and a killer safari rack. I think Surco has one to fit the bill. I want to make this into a badass beach truck to replace my Rover which is turning into a rust bucket.

Some personal stuff....I'm a partner in a consulting company which advises private equity funds on commercial real estate acquisitions. Been married 14 years, no kids, but lots of cars (BMW M6, RANGE ROVER, LEXUS GS, MB GL, etc.) and three cats. Too much info....? gotcha

Anyway, it would be great if you could drop a line with some reliable sources for parts. Thanks.
