Hummer recovery specialist

I went wheeling with a bunch of jeeps and a hummer H1 on the weekend. The poor hummer had a hard time keeping up.


First hummer stuck could have gone real bad. Buddy didn't realize there was a cliff in the sand pit and nearly went over. Don't worry..I pulled him out no problem





next time, the hummer tried to follow me over some rocks and got high centered..don't worry....i pulled him out no problem



Here..the hummer is stuck in a mudhole...Don't worry...I pulled him out no problem

Some slight differences in the military and civi versions...low center of gravity, decent departure angles and you'll survive when you drive over a land mine

Yeah, most of the civi Hummers are pretty lame, at least 1000 - 1500 lbs heavier and lack locking diffs (some might have Detroits, ARBs or Torsens, but not many). The military ones are definitely a lot more purpose built.

That being said, I'm pretty sure he could have done a lot better if he knew what he was doing. Judging by the pics (I could be wrong) he doesn't look to be overly experienced, and any Hummer owner can tell you they suck terribly in mud. They do well in sand, though, if you know what you're doing! LR
