SLK Trunk Rack

Anyone ever see this before?

I found it by doing a search of SLK230 on photobucket.com

Wonder if it is custom made?

I haven't seen that, but if you get one of these then you don't need the trunk rack!

I've seen them on the road (R170). Works for folks that need them. If I remember correctly, there's a post about the strap on luggage racks. Should fit both the R170 & R171l

Is this a lifted R170, most people try to lower them, at least he won't scrape entering driveways.

I have a faint recall of someone doing a 4 x 4 R170 mod a few years back. It might even be that one.
