So a couple of months ago I picked up an 04 ml350 for $500 from one of the used car dealers I work with. Soccer mom decided it was time for a new ride and traded it in. New power steering pump, resevoir and lines along with full tune up and she was up and running. The interior was an absolute mess so gutted it and cleaned out all the nasty. Original plan was to clean it, fix it and flip it. Had to put some miles on it in order to smog it since I had fixed the misfire and instantly fell in love with it. I had been looking for an old jeep to build and decided to be different and use the benz instead. Everyone here in southern california seems to have a jeep. First order was to install a yakima full length basket up top to hold all my gear. The usual off-roading necessities were outfitted, hi lift jack, shovel, pick and axe. Also installed rotopax dual water and gas cans on each side. 42 inch light bar in front and dual 4 inch light pods out back to light the way.
