Heres a little shot of me messing around in it last Sunday. So far I've been impressed with the little H3's "out of the box" performance. The 4:1 t-case is great.. along with the rear locker. But, it aint exactly the flexiest little thing around.. LOL. Well, we got one. We couldn't resist the lowered price and zero percent finance. We picked it up the other night, and left for a pre-arranged trip to the coast the next morning. I have to say, after driving it to the coast and back, ... I really like it. It's pretty fun to drive. It's not as underpowered as I thought it would be, or heard it to be. It's no strip burner, but I had no problems getting up to speed w/ me and the wife and kiddos & luggage on board. It doesn't offer as much space as the Tahoe, as expected, but I think the fun factor is much better than the hoe. I guess overall it's a just a little sportier, but still accomplishes the same goal. The locker, 33's, 4.56 gears, 4:1 t case are just a plus. The nav radio is pretty cool.. along with the XM. I liked cruising the beach with the monsson sound system kicked up, and the sunroof thrown open. Hmm.. I wonder if I could talk my wife into my 97 K1500? LOL.. not a chance. Heres some pics. A few when we first got it home, and one from the beach. My wife wants one... I have not really looked into Hummers before. I guess I'm a little close mined about some things. So I check 'em out. I think the H3 isn't too bad after all. 4:1 t case, locking rear diff. & 285-75-16's w/ respectable approach and departure angles. My wifes currnet ride is a 01 Chevy Tahoe LT 4wd. Pretty much all the options minus a sunroof. Leather, front & rear air, front & rear tunes for the kiddos.. pretty much the works for that year. I can't even count the times I've had to avoid certain trails at the lake or some other location we were at because I'm afraid I'm going to rip a running board (for the kiddos) off .. or drag the low hung body over something. I'd have to say it's about like trying to wheel a 1975 Caddy Eldarado... LOL. Now, we don't use it for wheelin' per say.. but there are times when it could be used, but then it's a toss up as to know if it is cut out for the task at hand, at the time. It's still very clean.. nearly factory fresh, with only 50,000 miles on the OD. I think she wants something that's still practical for her needs of hauling the kiddos around, along with grocieries etc.. but that is somewhat sportier too. Something that can handle a few little trails that we might encounter at the lake etc. Soooo.... it looks like we'll be looking seriously at getting one. I do think the Tahoe is a bit mundain ... sort of "a dime a dozen"... but it's nearly paid off. My only real complaint is that she reports it's been getting 12 mpg for a very long time. I knew she kept telling me that it wasn't getting good mph, but she only reciently told me a number. I mentioned that we need to have the fuel trim levels checked to make sure it's in the normal range.. but it quickly becomes obvious she's ready for a change. I'm a little conflicted as to what I want to do. I like what I've seen of the H3 so far. She test drove one while I was working yesterday, and gave me her evaluation. She thinks the power (220hp) is "ok" but could be a bit peppier... yeah, that's my girl. I myself have only looked at them when the dealership was closed. But, I wouldn't be opposed to one. But, the Tahoe is nice.. w/ low miles, and will be paid for soon. On the other hand, it sucks for a 4wd. We may as well have gotten a 2wd for what we are able to do in it. I did mention that we could do a small suspension lift etc.. but I honestly think she's ready for a different look. I'm ok with that. She never flinches at my project costs, and allows me total freedom as long as we can afford it. I want to make her happy of course.. so.. I see the likelyhood of a Hummer in my future. Anyway.. I'm just thinking out loud mostly.. still a bit perplexed as to whats best for us. Anyone here have one, or know someone who does? I'm curious as to how they like thiers etc.
