Just a feeler. I need a vehicle that could tow an enclosed trailer. So the ML55 may have to go. I have NEVER towed with my ML. I do have a hitch, but it was used for a cargo carrier only. I do not have the harness. Only the hitch that would go with the truck. vehicle is loaded as all ML55 are. Even has the phone, but no handset. Here is what it is:

2001 Brilliant Silver ML55
22k on the clock
Just had a Dealer service done. It was below miles, but he pushed it through
Dealer installed new window switch
Brand new rechromed AMG wheels(just installed)
80%-90% tread Dunlop 9000
MB push bar(S/S)
MB Side Steps(S/S)
Hoen Fogs H7
Rear wing
2002 chrome AMG Grill
Chrome trim around side markers
E-Power volatge Stabilizer
K&N filter
R1 Concepts Crossdrill/Slotted Zinc rotors(just installed)
Axxis XBG pads(just installed)
Llumar tint(35% sides, all others 5%)
Tornado
Brand New MB aluminum door sill plates.(just installed)

Runs flawlessly, all maintinance done at dealer.
Body is mint. Interior is mint. I have a set of ML430 mats that I use daily. I have a BRAND new set of AMG mats that are never used. Sale will also include a full set of ML430 7 spoke 17 inch rims(no curbrash) and matching M&S Dunlop 7000 VR 275/55/17 winter tires. This truck was unstoppable by anything this winter. The tires have plenty of life left as well. The only problem is the fuel gauge never shows higher then 3/4 of a tank. Dealer diag'ed as Sending Unit and part is on order. That will be replaced before sale. Truck has also had Premium fuel and Mobil 1. I can honestly say, one of the cleanest,nicest looking ML55 I have seen.
If interested, make me an offer. Trades may be considered. I am located in NJ.

Thanks

I assure you the car looks better in person. It drives like a dream. Brakes are still breaking in. I can take engine and interior shots if you like.

Thanks

Nice ML55. What Dunlops are those?

Are you sure you can't tow with the 55? you may not have to sell. Interesting you have the step bars on. I couldn't get them to sell me the steps with that body style, even though it was a true option for pre MY02 models. At least, from your pics, I know it'll fit. Also, why didn't you just get the fuel thing fixed. I know it's not a real pain in the neck, but it's a known problem and they could've done it under warranty. A lot of us have gone through that crap with the sending unit?

Those are Dunlop 9000

Yes the bars fit fine.

The truck is still under warranty. It was just at the dealer.(Ray Catena) Instead of keeping my truck another day, they released it and will send me an email when the part comes in. They will be replacing it for free under warranty. I was just mentioning it, since it is not done yet.

It will not tow what I need to tow. 28 ft enclosed trailer with a 2690 racecar. Sorry, but over 5k.

The M3 service was the worst I ever dealt with. It had to go.

The ML warranty ends this month. Still possible to pay the 2500-3000 for the extended. Once the sending unit is replaced, it will be perfect. The deal comes with the hitch and winter 17 rims and tires.
