Tires vs. Mattracks
This is a short comparison demonstrating the difference between tires and
tracks. 44" tires with Dana 60's and lockers would not get you through the
snow like the Mattracks. Yes, they are more expensive, and not for
everyone, but if you need to get through snow, mud, sand or any other soft
material they cannot be beat.
Hummer H1 Off Road Driving COMPLETELY Underwater Experience!
Hummer H1 Off-Road EXTREME!!! Is it a Hummer H1? Amazing footage of a
Modified Hummer H1, or Humvee, or a КАЛИСТРАТ!!? off road driving
under water in a river, will he make it???? What an experience!!
The hummer's(?) Exhaust is completely
submerged and the rest of the Hummer goes under water.
The Hummer H1 is a civilian off-road vehicle based on the M998 Humvee,
which was created by AM General. The vehicle was produced from 1992 through
2006, and was the first of what became the Hummer line. It was initially
known only as the "Hummer"; however, in 1999 in a joint venture between
General Motors and AM General, GM began marketing the Hummer H2, which was
built on a heavily modified GMC 2500HD chassis. It was at this point that
the original Hummer was given the H1 designation. For collectors, the most
desirable model is the H1 Alpha, produced in the final model year of 2006.
It had the most powerful engine and the best fuel mileage of the H1
vehicles. Overall, the H1 was a very limited production vehicle.
"Originally designed strictly for military use the four-wheel-drive utility
vehicle was released to the civilian market due to popular demand. Boasting
16 inches (40 cm) of ground clearance as well as super-aggressive approach
and departure angles, the Humvee could clamber over a 22-inch (56 cm) high
obstacle, handle a 60 percent grade and wade through up to 30 inches (76
cm) of water."
In the official state testing for the army revealed an inability to move in
snow (For the "Hammer" snow proved irresistible). Others were able to

HUMMERS offroad at Sunday River 2011 MVI_3938.MOV
HUMMERS wheeling at Sunday River Ski Resort in June 2011. Offroad 4x4
trails around the property, and up the ski slopes to the summit. These
clips are from the second annual Northeast HUMMER Event. We took H1, H2
and H3 vehicles (including an H3T Alpha) out, and had two solid days of
mild/fun driving through mud, water, rocks and dirt. Only one mechanical
failure (H2 broken tie rod) which we were able to swap out in short order.
Fishing for Hummers
Retrieving a Hummer from the bottom of a frozen lake in North Dakota...
Uncle Frank was out ice fishing with his family and they drove over a part
of the lake that has warm springs under it(there were no markings or
warnings) and the front end went through the ice. Frank and his family were
able to get out quickly before the entire thing went through the ice
Thankfully no one was hurt but it was a close call.
2 days later he had to return to get the Hummer from the bottom of the
lake. It is the law that you must retrieve the vehicle. It was covered by
We had no idea how to get a vehicle from the bottom of a frozen lake so I
went along to document it. It was quite a process as you will see.
I am used to living in Los Angeles so I had a lot of trouble being in that
Grandpa was drilling holes to ice fish while we waited and he worked up
quite a sweat.
