OK-the hummer/suburban is now inspected on ack on the road after a rebuild...got 39's on it now, but the 44's are getting balanced.....I think my jeep still has it by height, but the low profile of the humvee kit allows bigger tires with a moderate lift...now for some action pictures this weekend! ~~TIM~~ (it is the steel active power kit, no fiberglass) Painted in yellow durabak.

I'm impressed... that's one nice kit! It'd be just the thing to tow my yellow CJ! Good Work.. give us more details of the kit, time to build, and the extras you needed to buy.

I started building it at christmas and it still needs alot of cosmetics and interior. the kit was 8,000 bucks from active power...I had to buy and build and put together all the mounts for the body. the engine is a rebuilt 50 chevy with about 100 miles on it now. sm465 tranngy with granny low and np208 tranfer case. I have a set of 39 inch mickeys for the road and 44 inch hawgs for mud. Bogenson steering shaft, seats from an audi and suzuki x-90. DVD player, 2000 watt inverter, microwave, 4 inch lcd in the front and a 19 inch tv in the rear. Sega game center in the rear. dual electric cooling fans.

Engine has flat top pistons, RV Cam and clevite bearings 30 over on the pistons...probably around 250 HP....but it moves pretty good. Jeep headlights and hood tie downs from a semi truck. The lights and hood are original military. The frame is a mildly mofified suburban. Wiper motors from a military jeep ( I am not sure the year, but pretty old)...upgraded alternator, and I will soon go to double alternators, with dual dry cell batteries. I got a roof rack that will accomodate 8 KCs in the making and a cool brush guard, steps, and full sized 44 inch spare tire holder that should be going on iun the next month....

...In short-a lot of work, but tons of fun....I only have about $13,000 into now.....lots etter than $100,000 for new one and its easy to work on and fix =)

Thanks for all the ineterest
~~TIM~~
