Once, I saw a hummer with 25-27" wheels and 33s. Chrome everywhere. The tag said "Boot Camp" It made me laugh.
Thanks. It's true we don't have the best flex out there but you would be surprised what can be had once you disconnect the sway bars. Besides... With my 3.56's, front and rear lockers, 35's, rock sliders and UCP I'll just crawl over whatever you put in front of me.

Yeah I've got a pretty thick skin. You'll have to do better than that to get me to throw an e-tantrum.

haha, a hummer guy would have to have thick skin to walk into the proverbial lions den (forum overrun with jeep owners)

I find this amusing, I have not owned a jeep since about 72 I think. But I have always had 4wd of some type, foriegn and domestic. I find the skill of the driver to be the biggest asset in tough situations no matter what you are driving. I never built one of these things where the front tires could climb higher then the hood or anything close, most of what I have had remained stock with the exception of tires.

I have heard different guys teasing each other to the point of fist fights breaking out, I never seen the point in it but it did make for some entertainment.

You don't have to lift it at all to fit 35's. I did raise my front 2.5" by cranking on my t-bar's but it's not necessary. In fact now I get a slight amount of rub at full lock where before I cranked the t-bars I had no rub with the 35's.

In my experience most wheelers get along regardless of the type of rig with minimal teasing as long as you're willing to actually wheel your rig. Most of the heavy teasing goes between real wheelers and posers.

Oh yeah, I really do love those guys. They are the future of MY parts! Without mall cruisers I wont be able to find any usable HUMMER parts in 10 years. They better take damn good care of them!
