I've always wanted a HMMWV (the military Humvee, like the consumer Hummers but even less comfortable.) After careful consideration, however, I concluded that if I wanted an oversize topless impractical vehicle on large tires with GM powertrain better suited as a conversation piece than a daily driver, I could just as well have a Blazer. Which, coincidentally, I already do.
And even after finishing my mini bulldozer-backhoe, I find I enjoy building small things. As you'll see later on, being able to tote e.g. a winch bumper in one hand is priceless.
