ROFLMAO Haha but seriously... I HEARD that they're replacing the hummers in the military? Is this true? or was mah friend smoking too much crack? Honestly, i don't see any other vehicle that could replace the function of the hummer...its rugged, you can mount a m2 on it..and so on.. Seriously, i couldn't imagine... I know that hummers require a lot of maintainence, but still..

I happened to get 2 New off the train Hummers when I was in.. the 998 (Std)and 1098 (std w/ winch) (#'s ?) the one with the winch was an awesome vehicle. Never got stuck! I had always driven one up until the time when we drove back to ORD from NTC and we rotated drivers... It is SCARY riding on the passenger side!!! (that thing is so wide, you don't realize it until you sit on the right!!) I don't know how fast they can go, but I will tell you that the spedo' needle will point straight down! [:)]

They needed lot more repair time after Clinton/Gore decided that we should stop using that bad evil anti-freeze that would kill the planet, but didn't let us buy the non-toxic stuff to save the peace dividend. Tap water and engines don't mix well.

[url]http://www.humvee.net/[/url] They are somewhat rare as DOT and DOD don't think they are roadlegal/sold mostly for scrap. the ones out there are mostly Marine Corp models, the corp managed to trade a contractor for construction on a base for some Hmmv's. Things to watch for, the glow plugs/ ignitor control box, They need to be replaced as a unit. If the plugs go they often damage the engine. Make sure you get a form from the DOD that they are legal, (I think this form number will be listed on the site.) as there are some stolen ones out there from what I have read. Good luck.

They are de-milled and sold as scrap metal. It is due to the fact ( as stated above ) that the DOT and DOD fear they are a hazard to the public.

... Hell with the HUMVEE. As a "junior" I wanted one so bad I could taste it. Then I wised up to their woes. All Prestige. The hot ticket now-a-days around here are the [b]Pinzgauers[/b] made by Steyr Daimler Puch of Austria. ... There will be one in my inventory by fall hopefully.

Military hummers should only be given by cute servicewomen who shoot mini-guns from choppers. BrenLover

I'll second Winston..The Pinzgauer is a much better vehicle than the HMMWV for most people. Smaller-About the size of a VW bus Easier to drive-Drives like a VW bus. Better fuel economy-Averages 15 MPG highway Easier to maintain-Air cooled mill, and the rig is designed with an eye toward regular maintenance. Most of the people I've met who own HMMWV's (Mil, and civ) end up being unhappy with many aspects of em. A lot also seem to buy Pinzgauers after driving HMMWV's Meplat-
