How was the install? Thor from Viking just sent me the high rack with the rear ladder - been dragging my feet on the install just because I have to do some modding to the factory tail light guards and have been having too much fun just driving it. Need to get it done though before I head out to Moab again...

The rack is super easy, but I am not sure on the ladder. Thor installed it.

FrontRunner has launched a full line of accessories for the G-Klass
View attachment 165091

I have the FrontRunner rack on my 463 and it is pretty ideal for that truck.

Here are all the goodies on their site: FrontRunner
Whaaaaat?? Awesome Scott, thank you for sharing!!
However, I don't find any news of these additions (drawer system, aux fuel tank, water tank(universal?), front bumper, etc) on either Viking's site, nor F.R.'s USA or SA site; http://www.frontrunner.co.za
I assume they're just running behind with updating it. I will email Viking about these. I've been keenly awaiting for such. I have F.R.'s 2.4M tall rack(spotlight mounts--probably for sale, axe mount), stainless camp table underneath, their cargo net....all wonderfully engineered and built pieces of kit.

Thanks,
Jeremy

Thanks for the offer Keith! I will DEFINITELY be taking you up on it - coffee and donuts out at my house some weekend with the guys for a little wrenching party? Anxious to get it on and see what it's like - should be nice!

Scott - thanks for the reassurance as well - I think I may be sending the truck out to Thor, and if the guys and I can't come up with a satisfactory solution to mounting the bottom of the ladder I will just put it in the truck when it goes out for the custom front bumper...

There have been some questions regarding the availability of the G specific products from Front Runner from their flyer that was posted.

The products specific to the G are as follows, the remaining parts shown and listed on the flyer are universal.
1. Roof Rack - 2.2 Meter Slimline in stock in Burbank - ships UPS ground
2. Front Bumper/Brush Guard - We are importing a couple on the next shipment (roughly 2-3 months away). These are designed for the 460/461 models only. They can be made to fit 463's with modifications. I will be testing this to see what exactly is involved.
3. Fuel Tank - This is a South Africa item only and FR is not importing these to the US. These tanks are also diesel only.
