Description: This is a 2000 Europa with only 115K miles on it. I'm technically the 2nd owner (it was sold at auction by the 1st owner). It has a clean CarFax report (will provide on request).

I picked this up March 2018 after searching for a long time for a G-wagen with minimal electronics as to be more reliable when off-roading. I added jump seats in the rear so I could take the kids along. I upgraded the suspension and replaced the steering components. I added a Front Runner rack as to get more storage out of it. There were some leaks so I recently had alot of work done to correct this (see below). This has been a great truck and is alway a unique sight at any event. But as all things, my life circumstances have changed as I'm expecting my 6th child and realized going to off-road trips are not to be had in the near future.

Modification/Repairs/Replacements:
--New driver side G-Class Door Pocket
--Jumper seats in the rear
--Driver/passenger front door seals

--Rear Spare Wheel Cover with Lockable Compartment (VTS) ( I still have the OEM original tire cover)
--New engine hood support shock

--G-Wagen OME Coil Springs by ARB - Medium
--Front/rear shock Absorbers by OEM
--G-wagen Accessories 30mm front/rear wheel spacers
--Tires Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003 285/75/16 (put on at 112,372 miles)

--New steering link
--New Drag Link
--New Panhard Rod

--Front Runner G Class Slimline II Roof Rack Kit / Tall
--Front Runner Expedition Rail Kit - Full Perimeter - for 1475mm(W) Rack
--Front runner Ratcheting Spade/Shovel Mount
--Front Runner Hi-Lift Jack Bracket
--Front Runner Stainless Steel Tie Down Rings
--2x single nato jerry can mounts by 4x innovations

RECENT WORK:
Work on 10/15/19:
--Alignment
--A/C recharge

Work on 1/24/2020:
--replaced crankshaft position sensor
--valve cover seals replaced
--front pad/rotors/sensors replaced
--replaced air filer
--replaced transmission oil pain gasket & filter
--replaced output shaft seal

Currently the odometer reads 115,610. I have all the original factory tools, manuals and Europa documentation.

The bad:
--the door locks stopped working about 2x weeks ago with the key fob (I'm still troubleshooting, possible relay/control module/individual actuators). Rust on the front driver side mirror, front driver side fender (where they put in the turn signal guard), and on the back upper pillar (someone must have loaded or backed into something)
--2 areas of minimal rust. driver front fender (where the turn signal guard was put in) and back driver upper pillar (during transport it must have been bumped)

I'm always welcome people to come by and take alook. Let me know if there are any questions or concerns.

Thanks for looking Ross
I will post additional photos
