You obviously do not own a ML320.My Mercedes is the best Off-Road vehicle around in my part of Florida.I've been clocked at 152 M.P.H....Yes,...By a Cop..(LOL) I've ridden a 4Runner once,and I thought the ride was awful! I would send you pictures of it..if I knew how...

Ummm, OK. I really hope you were kidding. You're right, I don't own a Mercedes ML nor do I have the desire to own one.

Re: To: Toy4x4Boy

jus wondering, but how can you justify "best off road vehicle" with your only evidence being speed?

Re: To: Toy4x4Boy

I'd like to see some pics of your ML320 in a nice deep mud bog, or crawlin' the Rubicon or other nice rocky trail. Sand dunes, even... I'll bet that ML320 can't handle or stop as well as a car, and has no business at all moving at a stupid rate of speed like that. That's how people die by the way, by driving their vehicle faster than is safe... So what kind of off roading do you do with it, or are you just one of those posers who get 'em because they're "status symbol" type vehicles? If you can get any pics of your truck scanned into your computer, but don't know how to manipulate them to get 'em on here, you can email them to me and I'll shrink 'em down and post 'em...

I forgot to mention that I'm not being rude or abusive, just speakin' my mind...

Re: To: Toy4x4Boy

i DON'T UNDERSTAND YOU THINK THE M-CLASS IS BETTER THAN A 4RUNNER OFF ROAD? i USE TO WRENCH ON MCSAIDIES! THERE ARE NICE CARS IF YOU CAN AFORD THERE HIGH STICKER PRICE AND THERE CONSTANT UPKEEP!
bUT EVEN SAYING THAT IT IS GOOD OFF ROAD IS A JOKE! nO OFFENSE BUT OFF ROAD YOU WOULD PROBALLY BE BETTER OFF WITH A vw STILL GERMAN JUST NO FLUFF!

tHE M-CLASS I'M SURE IS FAST BUT WHERE DOSE SPEED IN THE OFF ROAD COME IN?

PLEASE DON'T BAG ON THE RUNNER i HAVE A TACOMA AND i DARE YOU TO EVEN TRY TO FOLLOW ME OFF ROAD! CHANCES ARE YOU WILL SPEND MORE TIME DIGGING YOUR RIG OUT THAN ACTULLY OFF ROADING IT!
EITHER WAY HAPPY TRAILS OR SPEED TRAPS TO YOU AND HAVE A NICE DAY!

Whats the point in going fast in a SUV? I thought that the point was going slow and crawling over rocks. Unless your bogging.

Re: To: Toy4x4Boy

Blastin' across desert and/or sand dunes is the only off road activity other than boggin' where speed might count for anything, but I'd seriously doubt that Mercedes would last very long at all doing either one of those activities...

Re: To: Toy4x4Boy

How long will it be until a Mercedes M-class gets the ultimate compliment: being made into a Monster Truck? I was watching TNN's Motor Madness today, and noticed that there's one Monster Truck there that was a Toyota pickup...
