    Travelers are nice, 18" longer bed than a SII and just a bit longer WB. Now Travel All's are way too big for my taste. Last thing I need to be doing is cutting down trees so I can get my truck down a trail. Like those Hummer guys

    Depends on the condition of the trail I plan on using. For mild trails we take the '69 Ford 44. On hardcore trails, we take the '68 Jeepster.

    Default The Ghosttowns.com Jeep

    Heavily modified jeep - TBT alumiflex, cage, bumpers and skids, Rubicon 44's warn full float and arb lockers front and rear and much more but the best thing is the custom 3 car seat cage in the rear so the kids can come!

    Post your pics here:

    My 4-runner & our partner's Tacoma do a pretty good job of taking us where we need to go.

    I know of a few H1 guys that like to go out and give the Sierra Club something to complain about. Every H2 (4 so far) I've seen on a trail is either stuck or broke down. I guess the owners really believe the commercials on TV.

    Default Hummers - and how to get there!

    Around these parts we have streetch limo H1's, riducalous looking, jacked up but scratch free H2s, and a bunch of poser's driving them as well BUT my friends Rod and Chad Hall do a fine job in desert with those big old things so not all Hummer owners are posers Me I use my straight 6 92 Bronco, my 300,000 mile 88 Ford Van (Also straight 6), my Suzuki Enduro (If I need a street legal vehicle) or an old Husqvarna if I don't and at last resort, my legs to hike in to ferret out Ghost Towns.
