It is tough. I tried Walmart, Lowe's, and the mall and couldn't get near any

I'll bag me one! The only 4x4 I'd rather have over my Jeep is an H1.

Don't forget that the military HMMWV abbreviation stands for High-Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle. I am not sure that describes the modern Hummers at all. Sure does describe the Jeep, though. Just saying ....

Are those car tires or are they just trying to lower to make it easier to load their BON TON bags.

have you ever checked out a Hummer forum? Those guys talk about stuff like downgrading tires and gears to get better fuel readout seems like Jeepers try our best to DESTROY it

when I get 10mpg, my tires are perfect lol

He didn't mean it, I promise. He's been drinking since last night and took too many alergy pills this morning.

He'll be better after a little sleep I'm sure. Then all will be ok.

mind you, this is an original tan one, not some mall cruiser... you can really tell by the looks of this one how much they wanted it to pretty much be a bigger modified jeep with the initial designing. Look at the headlights, the grill and even the tops of the fenders. Same shapes as the wrangler, just wider and flater.




and... here is a Wrangler (if your at work, turn your volume down... this one us super loud for some reason?)

Hah! Nice.
There is an H3 that is always parked at the Menards near me every time I go. I *always* park right in front of it when there is a spot open - even if it is way out in the parking lot (which it usually is, I assume to avoid customers dinging it).
Definitely will get a pic next time >)

I usually avoid soccer mom mobiles...damn kids are always throwing doors open like its nothing...so I can't say that I've ever intentionally parked near a Hummer of any variety..well except when I visit my Brother. He has an H3...so I mock him every time I see it.

Last week I challenged him and my Dad to a competition. My Dad has a F150 4x4. He seemed more interested than my brother spouting off "I'd be more comfortable"...to which I replied "while your stuck, waiting on the Jeep to rescue you." We had a good laugh.

Great work. Big black beast. I assume you took the picture did the owner of the Hummer make you. I had to wait awhile before the owner went into the movie.
