that'* cool. He landed on that big rock with the tie rod. Watch it, and you'll see how it happened. Anyone who would take a vehicle with that low ground clearance on a trail like that deserves the towing bill

Yeah, I don't think the H2 deserves to be called a Hummer. I drove HMMMWV'* for years. They are some tuff sumbitches!! The H2 is a Suburban with an ugly, HumVee looking body...

They can do a lot, but groud clearance is the big problem with them. It'* a nice median though, albeit not the same as the original.

my old jeep would have been able to go through that without a problem. we were 4 wheeling in a local spot when we heard tumbles and crushing metal. the "smart" owner of a H2 was making a 3 point turn on a narrow trail and didn't notice the 14' steep hill behind him and barrelled down it.

That rock looks small enough to flip out of the way? The driver looks like he'* never 4x4 before? Just look at him spin the tires
