OP thinks Hummers are off road vehicles?

Only one reason. To piss off environmentalists on Earth Day.

I remember when GM stopped making Hummers; The Onion said that former Hummer owners would now be forced to go door-to-door to tell people they're assholes.

I'm not sure about the availability in the states for Japanese 4x4s but for genuine off roading an early to mid 2000's Hilux, Land Cruiser or L200 would be perfect: cheap, ultra reliable and strong.
Landrovers (around the TD5's) are one of the worlds greatest off roaders but suck balls at everything else and I think they're illegal in America due to poor safety records but I'd have to check that.
But as said earlier proper Hummers are the nuts. Civvies ones are just nuts.Ne Obliviscaris

I am pondering shipping it back to the US when I'm done in Micronesia after fixing it up as much as I can at low cost in Micronesia and putting on some cheap Korean off roading tires. Then, I could use it to drive around the desert in Nevada. The rust would stop due to being in a desert and I'd basically have something to use for off roading without the inflated BS consumerist price tag that there would have been to get something in the US.Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

I work with guys that use their Hilux's to commute to work, then as working pickups and they disrespect them on a daily basis and the fuckers still won't die. They're just brilliant machines.Ne Obliviscaris
