    There is a show on the history channel right now bragging about the hummer. I call BS. I've driven them. The military version anyway, and they suck!!!!!!!!!

    yup watched it last night, mardern marvels 4x4.

    the hummer is a prpose built rig, and does great in high speen sand.

    wha sucks about them to you?

    they are not made for rock crawling and such..

    just wondering why you say they suck /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    And if they suck, what is so much better and versitle that the military could use in its place? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    watched it a couple nights ago, showed the Carlisle Nationals here in PA, might go to that this year. Ticked a truck guy like me off with a few things but whatever. They said, "the pickup these days is used for customizing and showing off your own style, very few of them ever go off road" they need a CK5 get together on there. Then I loved it when they showed a lightning and the guy polishing it, he listed what was done to it(factory blower and no aftermarket anything) and then the announcer said, "he has a supercharger added to his truck(its factory!), in fact almost all these truck guys put superchargers on their trucks!" HA. They showed a bunch of more show trash and only one of them besides the lightning had a blower, and that was some 4 cyl lowered nissan or toyota. He even admitted its not that fast /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Was that the one that seemed really DODGE biased?

    They break down a lot. The braking is weird. They jar your spine terribly. The e-brakes don't work worth a crap. Maybe it was just the fleet I was involved with. But I prefered a pick up over the Hummer any day. The only thing that was cool was no doors and a big opening for a 50 cal.

    By the way there are rocks in the desert. Sometimes you might have to climb them. With the very little amount of articulation and no lockers they don't serve their purpose very well.
