Hummvee kits/replicas

Does anyone know know anything about the Bummer kits by Tatonka or Urban manufacturing? Here are the links to their pages.

I cam across an older issue of Four Wheeler magazine October 2000 has part 2 of Project Bummer. What these kits are is a fiberglass body you bolt on to a 73-87 trucks or 73-91 model Blazers or Suburbans. They look a lot like an actuall Hummer. The kits are a lot cheaper than a real one and you still get all the added features of a GM vehicle. I was just wondering if anyone has any information on these kits? I saw an add in the auto trader a few months back for actual USMC Hummvee's for $25,000. All the web sites I looked at said military Hummvees are not DOT approved and that they should have been cut into sections before leaving a military installation. These sites also said that they could be seized by the government if they were owned by individuals and it would be hard or impossible to register them if you actually got one and reassembled it due to the non-approval of the DOT. Any info on this?
