Hummer

I just saw my first H2 Hummer, a little odd looking.
Not much ground clerance under front axle.
I did like the way the hood and fenders tilted forward.

Re: Hummer

What a waste. They took some of the best attributes of the Hummer (ground clearance, trac-width, etc.) and trashed them for "mainstream." Now any time I see someone in one, I think "schmuck" rather than "cool."

Re: Hummer

Seen a couple in the Seattle area recently, too. . . . nice-looking, supposedly VERY comfy. Will be nice to see what long-term road use and testing yields in the way of trail-worthiness. I noticed the lack of clearance under the diffs, too. . . although they look like beefy diffs to work with. . . maybe they just need a good 4" lift and some bigger tires. Might be all that's needed for some serious off-roading.

Still. . . taking a $50+K rig and adding some mods, THEN taking it off-road. . . don't think we'll too many of them on the trails any time soon.

Re: Hummer

It's just a suburbon chassis with a different body.
