stupid hummer owners

I was looking for a h3 recovery team decal on google because i bought my wj from someone in my family that drives a h3 and i thought it would be funny. So a hummer forum was the first thing on the list and i clicked on it. Anyways some of these stupid hummer drivers have put this sticker on their hummer thinking it was made for hummer drivers. This is by far one of the funniest things i have seen all day.

I have been thinking about getting one for my dub, hummers are total Pavement Princesses, or at least the ones around here... mostly H2 s though.

That is awesome I wanna see some pics

On a side note I was once out riding around the fire roads in Fayetteville when I came upon a stranded H3 buried up to about halfway to the doors. White and like 2 weeks old he said. Took me and an S10 to get this guy out Funniest thing yet. I almost got one of those stickers the next day but just never got around to it.

Before the 12k hydraulic winch was added and front engine skids.

35" TOYO MT's. locked front and rear, V8 engine, low range transfer case (comparable to a Rubicon's)

I have yet to get an H-1 (Humvee) stuck. I have tried. If I can get it stuck, I can then prove my argument that we do not have adequate recovery gear. But no... 9000 lbs and unstoppable. Of course it would help if it would turn tight enough to get to the fun stuff!

It's not the vehicle I dislike but the stigma that comes with it, I like H1's and H3's anyhow...

the problems with hummers are the wheel base, and the fact that they use cheap parts that are unreliable.

a few guys I know were running H2's and H3's hard, they have since dropped them all because the constant replacement of parts that were too cheap to handle it. and unlike Jeep, GM used several different manufacturers of parts year to year.

the H1 is the true hummer all the rest are just a tahoe that looks like it can go offroad.

Really?, they come better equipped stock than a Grand Cherokee. I have yet to see a GC with factory axles that can take a 35" tire with a V8 behind it, one with stock lockers, or can fit a 35" with almost no lift. Bone stock to bone stock, I would back an H1 or H3 all day over a GC.

I'd back one over most jeeps bone stock to bone stock. the problem is the maintenance is impossible. and in tight spaces they suck.

I have never seen an H2/3 that was lifted have smaller wheels than 24"s on it and usually they have some Toyo Proxes wrapped around them. That is just what I see here. yeah they can fit those 35" tires, but does anyone ever use it for that?

For the price of a hummer and the size of them i would never use one for wheeling nor would i drive one at all but they have some good points to them like they can run 35s and are locked but dont forget they are also IFS and weigh way too much and have very poor visibility for offroadin . the thing i like about hummer is that they come with decent REAL recovery points and they are pretty beeffy driveline wise but they are still to big IMO.

H3's are pretty nice really, but I haven't had a chance to test their reliability. I mean, come on here, how reliable are our Jeeps? We spend more time maintaining them than most people spend driving their vehicles. It's not all about fun either. Unless you think replacing cheap parts every other week is fun.

I've been pulled out of snowdrifts by an H3 that was stock. Yes, H3's have a stigma against them. All Hummers do. But how many people have F150's just to drive themselves around, or other impractical vehicles for their purpose? Then they still try to off-road them. Big, heavy, inefficient trucks just to cart one person around every day... And yes, a lot are on 20's with rubber band tires, or poser MT's at best. I wouldn't want an H3, but they are pretty capable stock. If they're more unreliable than a Jeep, that's pretty sad.
