i dont care what it was designed for. point is, the h1 should never have existed.we had the jeep, thats all was needed. the hummer will never be on par with a jeep.
h1 a poser??? are you kidding me? they dont use them in battle for no reason. are there any jeeps in iraq?

the Humvee is actually the military vehicle, not the H1

the H1 is posing as a Humvee that you see in Iraq.

and just because I'm a Jeep fan doesn't mean I don't respect the Humvee, just because the Humvee is better suited for military purposes doesn't mean it could perform as well in most of the civilian uses my Jeep performs.

as far as the H3 is concerned I think it'* the best of the HUMMER line for the average persons needs. As I said before I would like to see GM offer it with an offroad package that could let it live up to it'* potential.

well of course the H1 is posing. gm cant sell a humvee with a machine gun turret in in. but with that logic, u could say that a monte carlo and a charger are posing as nascar race cars

Not really, Humvee came before the H1, Monte Carlo and Chargers were around in stock form BEFORE they were used in NASCAR


I think I'm going to stay out of this topic before I fan any more flames.

Guys, the JEEP, and the H1 aren't even in the same galaxy! The Jeep, whether it be the Wrangler, the Cherokee, the Liberty or whatever, is NOT in any way comparable to the H1. They are apples and oranges! You might as well compare a 747 and the Lunar rover!

The Wrangler is a small vehicle, designed to take advantage of it'* size to scramble up, down, across, and over just about anything, but the simple fact is that it'* carrying ability is sorely lacking.

The HMMV, and it'* slightly watered down civilian counterpart (that share almost all running gear except for some safety and luxury considerations), were designed to cross mild to moderate terrain while carrying heavy loads of people, equipment, machinery, fire fighting equipment and pumps, rescue equipment, geological survey equipment, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc., without breaking down or getting stuck, which job it does very, VERY well. Perhaps it can't go some of the places a Jeep can, but where it does go, it can carry over a ton and a half of men and equipment in with it. It was designed to be easily and quickly converted from one role to another, with every thing from simple utility boxes, to ambulance bodies, to missile platforms that can be changed out in a matter of hours.

Perhaps the morons that buy them and never take them out of Beverly give them a bad image, but the simple fact is that the HUMMER has earned it'* place in the world many times over.
Jeep will always be the best off-roader for pure maneuverability, but it simply lacks the brute strength that an H1 possesses.

I have no problem what so ever with that statement I think you summed it up very nicely

BTW, Elmo, AMGeneral started selling the HMMV to the US millitary in the early 80'*. The civilian AMGeneral HUMMER came to the market in the mid-90'* after being popularized when people saw them on the news, being dispatched with National Guard troops to several prison riots in the early 90'*.
GM bought AMGeneral in the late 90'*, introduced that POS H2, gave the original civvie HUMMER their 6.6td and their 8.1L gasser, and then, a full year later, started calling the HUMMER the H1-Alpha.

*sigh*

i love it when people who have no idea what they are talking about open their mouths. really i do. misinformed people like you are the reason fiero owners like me can buy these things for next to nothing. i've had four fieros, two '88 coupes, one with a cadallac 4.9 alluminum V-8, and two '85 GT'* and i gotta tell you. they were all cool little cars. none of them ever cought on fire.

in '84 eight fieros had connecting rod failures (do to lack of maintenence on the owner'* part, mind you) when the rods punched through the block the oil fell onto the cat converter and started a fire. there was a recall and a sheild was installed to prevent this very thing. but for some reason idiots still like to sware theat they catch fire every day, and because the doors are plastic the melt shut and you can't get out. oh my god they're death traps. then i end up all ticked off about your ignorance. thanks man.
Haha holy hell you described my EXACT fire, well the second one. The owner brought it into my shop, needed the headgasket replaced. We did it and told him that it needed a complete overhaul because of a rod knock. He declined, and no more than 3 hours later it blew a softball sized hole in the back of the block. BOOM fire. The first fire was a wiring problem.
