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

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.

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.

Thanks for the info Thor. The ad must have been destined for the euro market vs USA. :(
