    Here are some shots of the installed Boost Gauge, ScanGauge II and steering wheel. The steering wheel is semi-permanent as it was originally intended for the Cobra, but I kind of like it on the Hummer.

    New Fuel Selector Switch location:


    I think that about covers it.. its time to start saving/gathering all the parts necessary to do a Duramax conversion in about 6 months.

    Here is the brushguard changed over:

    Always had a hardon for those rigs...ill own one soon enuff

    Dig the upgrades, its always the smaller shit that makes the bigger difference...mind you it would look better on 44's heh

    haha. Ya, problem is I really love how stable it is without a lift and on 37" I will need to do a 2" body lift once I do the Duramax conversion, and that will allow 41's to fit neatly under there. With a 2" suspension lift I can do the 44's.. but again. the stability is something I really enjoy

    I got a sweet deal, however if I would do it over again I would wait until things are really hurting for the people down south, and pick up an Alpha (2006, upgraded interior and Duramax Motor)

    You're about 3 gauges and 2 switches short of a 747 cockpit.






    Cool machine. I'd roll up the windows though while playing in the mud with that one. Too nice inside to cover in dirt.

    What are you going to use it for? I just don't get trying to fit something 7 feet wide down most decent trails in Ontario without mounting a chainsaw on each fender.

    To each their own I guess.

    What makes you think that the trails in Ontario are so narrow?

    Take a TJ (66" width factory) and put in full width axles into it (79") and then add a decent set of tires with proper backspacing and ad another 3-4" on top of that with tire bulge and all. Your at 83"

    The H1 is factory 86.5" Wide. Is 3" going to make that big of a difference? With width, comes stability, so onroad.. it will make a huge difference, but on the trails, not so much.

    It's not as wide as it appears, it only looks so wide because it isn't tall, compared to a stock excursion, I am even, and I have a foot high roof rack.

    Your right, on the trails, through the obstacles the Jeep can't make it through

    Man the interior is so cool, I really dig all the gadgets and shit. I know if I could thief-proof my TJ, I'd have all sorts of neat junk in there.

    Thanks. I have noticed you get alot of hits and misses with the interior. Most Jeep guys and offroaders find it cool as shit, but the suburban guys think the car is from the 80's

    I remember my YJ, I got a deck stolen out of that once, along with a case of pop. Who the hell steals a case of pop?

    Exact reason why I didn't get a Open Top Hummer

    I love H1 hummers. Looks sweet.

    How do you get your hood open? Do the front bars fold down?

    Love all the gadgets.
