Default 1981 Mercedes 280G n00b Question

Hey guys,

I am contemplating a 4 door Mercedes 280G locally, and need to ask about it in general. I am an SL freak myself, owning them all from 1967 to 2013.
Never have any experience whatsoever in the G. I know I can search the forum and web and whatnot, but I would appreciate if someone can give me condensed info about the 460 series in terms of drawbacks, common problems and 4wd system (does it come with lockers?)

Thanks guys.

The 300GD is much better. The 280 has the horsepower, but its low MPG doesn't match its power output.
