What would you buy?

If you were in Germany, and didn't have to pay for shipping to the U.S. (or other parts of the world) and had the ability to buy goods with a 16% VAT discount...what parts and/or accesories would you be likely to purchase for your G?

Here's what I think I'll start with:

SPARES: Water Pump, Timing Chain, Clutch Master and Slave Cylinders, Thermostat, Wheel Bearings, Fan Belt, Valve Cover Gasket.

DOO-DADS: ALUTEC MB Vantastic Wheels (6.5x16H2)
ARB Roof Rack (Extrem Motorsport?), Fender Flares (ORC or MB).

What else would you want from the Motherland?

Thanks, Shawn

Thanks Dutch, I think the wheels and fender flares are "must buys" before I leave. How about 6.17 gears (I plan to run 235s w/32" OD on the 240) and the military 5-speed?--(could be partially funded by tax return ;)) Do you think these parts would be cheaper in Deutschland or back home? Any other size or weight prohibitive items that I should consider?

BTW: I think it's going to be a while before my truck needs any body panels--it was restored a couple years back and is in incredible shape. Unless of course I end up living in New England again. I once had a near-new Jeep CJ7 that went from zero rust to "ventilated flooring" in only two seasons--jeesh.
