Dear Lord that's a lot of Hummer.... Where could you possibly wheel that at and not take out dozens of tree branches? Tsk tsk, probably is all show and no go. Did he see you nudging the Mach under it, Rick?

( know this has been posted before, but I can't help it!) H2's are only good for one thing! EXPLORER MUNCHIES! :D :D :D

Ooops, wasn't fast enough... Just read the link on the install. They did a helluva job on it, I'll credit them that much. It doesn't seem to have much flex though, well at least not as much as some of the tube buggies I've seen. Then again, I'm no expert ;)

Just out of morbid curiosity, roughly how much did it cost to do that conversion? I looked at the shots on the website (Dead Link Removed) and they definitely put a heckuva lot of good work into it!!

It's not finished yet. In fact it had to be pushed outside since there are no gears in the axles yet :D It will flex a LOT more, but the tires are contacting the frame rails when they twist it up. They need to add wheel spacers to get the clearance they need to allow full flex.

It will flex more like this one when it's done.

That *thing* is very nice! Quite a bit of work went into that. But I like the Mach better!
