You know? The pickup fared better than the H2. Not surprising.

My money says it was the H2 drivers fault. Probably wirelessly checking his stocks on his cell phone or something on the way to play golf at the country club or something like that.

Actually, the crush zones are designed to crumple like that - absorbs the impact before the occupants get tossed.

code's right. everyone loves bashing the H2, but it looks like the cabin faired very well. aside from the 5 mph bumpers, nothing is important enough to be worried about other than the occupants.

Actually, after reading this report... I would have to say H2 is tough for running into six cars and coming out like that.

Since the Hummer was made for the military , is the civilian version supposed to crumple to save the occupants?


I have a hummer in my unit ( well its not mine, its the army's) but when we bump into stuff, it cracks since the hood and some of the side panels are fiberglass looking stuff

We never have really crashed into anything hard enought to do more then just crack it, then get yelled at by the motor pool SGT

the Hummer is completely different, well the H2 is WAY different and the original Hummer available to civilans is still quite a bit different than the HMMWV's that our unit's have (hooah). The H1 available to civilans had to be DOT approved to even be insurable, that meant a lot of things had to change, ie something that resembles a dash more than a metal edge, emissions, 24V electrical system. Our HMMWV's were built for utility in combat and ease of use, ie no keys, simple guages, no locks etc. The H2's are just an SUV styled to look like the HMMWV's. The passenger safety is a big concern for automakers, well for vehicles that civilians to ride in, haha.
Yeah, somebody(not me.... Rolling Eyes ) forgot how freaking wide they are and well, "adjusted the mirrors"

is it true that there are some hummers out there in the military with AC??


I heard the Air Force had some to protect some electronics they had ( sensors or something)

Dont know if its true, just sounds like wishfull thinking

Only AC I get is in my FLA 997, rear compartment ( 4 person hummer ambulance)

And thats IF it works

actually it was a Hummer dealer that wasn't supposed to be driving due to health condition.he had a stroke or something and bounced off several cars and the Dodge was the last one he found

There was an old lady around here that did that. They think she blacked out then ran into 3 cars then a motel! Makes you wonder if you need to take a physical or something once you get old enough to make sure you are healthy enough to still drive.

Wasn't there a southpark episode about old people killing other people by driving? So they made sure the country cooking place was closed all day so the old people starved to death?

possibly, would be special work to fit a AC into the belt system, but you know how the air force is... When we mount the SINGARS on the dash they make a lot of heat, but normal heat sinks can keep them cool enough.


on your med vehicle it's probably mounted as an exterior unit. on that giant ugly box of a thing on back of your humvee

There are some modified HMVV's that do have air conditioning. I saw a few in Iraq, they were part of a NBC(Nuclear Biological Chemical) setup. The hummer needs to be sealed against NBC attack, and if it is, there needs to be a way to have cooler temps, especially in desert environments. But my guess is they were all Army vehicles, me and my Marines ran around. Mr. Green
