H2 owner can HEAR a tie rod bend...

Amazing, isn't it?

Here's the vid.

All I heard was him laying on the throttle and bouncing the snot out of a 6,000lb vehicle.

Re: H2 owner can HEAR a tie rod bend...

All I can think of is: What a big, steamy POS that H2 is. It breaks down going up that hill?! [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img] Just goes to prove that some people have more money than brains. They think that the H2 is really an "off-road machine." While, the same guys think the Samurai is a piece of tinfoil that can't even get over a mole hill. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

FYI, I went to Moab during the 2000 Zukfari and I really thrashed and bounced my 1986 Samurai trying to get up some of those hills. FYI, I did have a front locker but I was open in the rear. I had some real difficulty but I didn't break *anything*.

Re: H2 owner can HEAR a tie rod bend...

What the heck was that?

I had a '77 Cherokee that probably weighed in at 5500#'s and it never broke anything because of a little bounce like that. We did manage to break a front spring while jumping it all day one time...that led to some SERIOUS repair work after the bind that took place.

I took a look at the H2 at a local dealership. Matzuki was parked right next to it and I asked the salesman a couple of questions. The one that stumped him most, “When off-road, what can this $45,000 vehicle do that my $3,000 cannot?”

Answer: “Well, this is 4 wheel drive and has a lot of horepower.”

I should take this video to him on my laptop and ask him if he can elaborate a little...

Re: H2 owner can HEAR a tie rod bend...

Unlike the original Hummer the H2 was never meant to be a
serious offroad vehicle,it's only marketed that way.I'm sure it would be great at transporting your family up to the ski lodge for a weekend outing or making a statement about your financial status.The only reason I could think of to pesonally own one would be to thumb my nose at those
enviromentalists who hate SUVs.

If you visit the guys site, www.yellowh2.com, you'll see he's put tons of money into it. Stuff like Thermal Night Vision.

He's got some really cool pictures out at Moab. I'm jealous of people that live out there. Beautiful scenery.

It is beautiful out there. I lived in Utah for a while and there is a lot to see in that state. Aside from the obvious places like Moab and Park City, there is a lot of open country that is untouched (or at least touched very lightly) and I would love to go back for a month or two and just explore.
