Nice, it's looking good. Post up more photos when you get a chance.

btw, in my rush that day I forgot to take you for a spin in my truck. Before you make a decision on lowering suspension, give me a call and I'll let you take mine for a rip. You may or may not like the stiff ride so it'd be a good idea to try it out before you buy.

Cheers

Congrats and welcome to the forum! Do the wheels stick out from the fenders? Looks like you need the flares.

Don't you already have dvd nav?
I think he's in Canada. Based on a few recent posts ML500s over there don't get DVD nav standard, even if the ML500s here do.

pirrelli scorpion 265/35/22 but i want to go wider in the rear
K,

You should be aware that your tires have to be carefully matched. The tire sidewall height has to be the same front to rear because of the 4 wheel drive system. Due to the limited range of tires available in a 22" size, you're not going to be able to find a combo that will work. If you were running an 18", the story would be different.

The only sizes that would work in a 22:
265/35/22
285/35/22
295/30/22

All of them have different sidewall heights so you can't mix and match.

Basically, if you want to go wider in the rear, you're going to have to use the same tire up front.

Sorry to disappoint, but your truck is far too nice and I can't allow you to ruin your drivetrain like that. :)
