    nice sig banner phreak! and yea H1's dont flex much independent suspension... there are after market lift kits(i bought one but its only 2" coil up front) gives me more articulation but not much also everyone has been removing the sway bars which I plan on doing as well. Alot of people say without sway bars they dont notice any difference on road so thats good to hear. As for other aftermarket stuff there is a 6" suspension lift and 10" suspension lift that also increase articulation but again not much. Other people have been experiementing with airbags simulating straight axel flex with those but noone has made a perfect kit yet...

    I am a frequent forum poster on Canadian Hummer club and have been to a couple runs that were setup on the forum but I have not yet been to a hummer happening... hope to change that this year depending on when and where it is

    What other vehicles can you say "I got 2" lift and can fit 40's!!!"

    Man I'd love to tweak the WG on that. What psi is it currently set on? I've had fun with Ford diesels before, H1 diesel should be as much fun!!!

    I prefer to build it and not buy it, you see it, I probably made it.

    not sure havent looked into it yet but from what I have heard from people with boost guages we get around 6-9psi max stock config... but with some mods i heard of around 12-14psi but people say anything over 16psi on the 6.5's isnt very good for em...
    And yea not too many vehicles can fit 40"s with 2" lift... and fit 38"s stock

    No teasing of the H1 here; they are some seriously tough machines!

    Nice build up too, I can imagine working on it can be a little challenging. Or is it made to be easily tinkered on?

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!

    Thanks, and yeah it is some what easy to tinker with. Especially with the HML(Hummer Mailing List) if you dont know what to do or how to do it there is always someone on there willing to guide you through it.

    Thanks Tuff and yeah the CTIS is always a favorite feature.

    craig: Not really just for gas milage but for power/torque as well also reliability will be a plus.

    I was wondering if the civie H1 came with hook up sling points like the military ones do? If they don't, would you be adding them? The gyrenes used to use the lift points as recovery points if they couldn't reach the rings in the bumpers.

    the Civie H1's do come with the air hooks out of the hood but the rear bumper is a bit different... the Rear bumper on the HMMWV's have the hooks at both the right and left ends of the bumpers the H1's do not... Although when I do the body lift to make way for the cummins, I do plan on getting a custom rear bumper created to fill the gap and give me more clearence. But I do not believe I will be adding this feature just because I dont plan on using them(hopefully wont need them). plus I wasnt going to go with a full bumper in the rear again for clearence.

    But I have seen Civie H1's air lifted using their current rear bumper tow points with out issue it just isnt the same as the military bumper.

    I think the most interesting part of the H1 is its gear reduction at the spindle. I like how it enables the axle shafts to be up higher out of harms way along with the differential. It also must relieve some of the working loads a typical IFS axle shaft must transmit. Flat out your H1 is one impressive machine! The people you wheel with must like having a truck like this in the pack. I sure would.

    Yes geared hubs are definitly a great feature as well... As for wheelin yeah I am always useful to have in the pack unless of course I get stuck... which I found out really isnt much fun when your relying on vehicles that are a 1/3rd of your weight to get you out heh! I think that is why I bought my ZJ so I can get crazy when there is a smaller pack out there.
