    We got it last saturday. It's and 08 H3 with 14,000 miles. 4X4 with locking rear diff. from what I can tell its been babied its hole life.

    I plan on line-x'ing the chrome grill and blacking out the wheels and emblems for starters:cool:

    I just ordered some 24 led dome lights from oznium.
    Now Im just trying to talk her into letting me wheel it!:D

    EDIT: the reason for this is that we just had a baby and needed a "bigger" car...she was driving a mustang which would not hold a rear facing car seat

    Nice..does it have the front locker too? Those have some sick options and can clear some tires.

    Now you guys can have your own competition?

    I'll agree with that. the 5cyl does lack power

    as for 8mpg:rolleyes: it gets like 15:p haha

    well She did have a mustang and a rear facing car seat would NOT fit in it so this is what she opted for. I will say that its alot nicer than the mustang

    Thanks :)

    No front locker. Ive been reading that these have aluminum front difs and under stress of a locker they can break easily. some have upgraded to cast iron front difs but thats too involved for me

    Congrats on your new vehicle purchase. But I must ask... Hummer is a discontinued brand... Why buy it?
