This is not a 4x4², but it's as close as you can get without portal axles and a $200,000 price tag!


The Mercedes-Benz G-Class was born as a rugged military vehicle, but these days, it's known more for being a luxury SUV. Recent additions to the G-Class lineup such as the 6x6 and 4x4² prove that this SUV still has some serious off-road chops, while this custom 2002 Mercedes-Benz G500 shows that you don't need to spend six figures to get an off-road-ready G-Wagen.

This monster Mercedes has been modified for the trails thanks to a two-inch lift, Bilstein shocks and custom bead-lock wheels wrapped in massive Toyo mud-terrain tires. Any G-Class is sure to stand out wearing such meaty tires and legit bead-lock wheels, but this one will definitely get plenty of looks thanks to its Alien Green body wrap that mimics the color used on the G550 4x4². The hood, bumpers, roof, tire cover and fender flares remain in this SUV's original black paint adding even more style with a two-tone color scheme.

While the exterior has clearly been customized for off-roading, this G-Class still sports the SUV's ultra-luxury interior. The seats are wrapped in black Nappa leather, and the dark interior is accented by burl walnut wood trim. Likewise, this beast's drivetrain was left alone since the 5.0-liter V8 delivers plenty of brute strength through a five-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system with three locking differentials.

If you're looking for a rugged SUV that stands out, Canyon State Classics has just what you need. This custom 2002 Mercedes-Benz G500 is listed for $34,900, but you can click HERE to make an offer.
