“The military version might be usefull - the civilian version looks like a wannabe piece of crud, without the toughness of the real thing.

I bet you put a snow blade on it, use it for two years, and the front end turns into trash.

BTW, the Jeep has a lot of usefull applications - like pulling stuck Hummers out of the mud.

Since you already admitted you never owned one, there was no reason to display any further ignorance on the topic as you did in the remainder of your post.

I don’t understand why you felt the need to do this, primarily because as a H2 owner, I know its laughable nonsense.

Tell me why it is nonsense - I want to learn.

“When the military asks for something on the other hand, things get done. That is why Arrowhead Engineering, Inc. makes a push-plate for the HMMWV that allows a full sized Fisher plow to be installed. A call into them revealed that for a civilian Hummer H1, one can expect an installation cost of in excess of $5,000.00 for one of these setups. Expect to lose quite a lot of approach angle when that plow frame is installed, too, which can be a real bummer if there are any wheeling plans in that trucks future. Meyer makes a snowplow kit that will work on Hummer/HMMWV vehicles as well. Each of the aforementioned plow setups are the real deal designed for commercial plowing applications. Those responsible for clearing private roads, multiple rental properties or parking lots may want to look into one of these heavier duty options; but for those of us planning to clear a long driveway or two, these might be overkill. And how about all those H3’s out there? Nobody wants to hang 800+ lbs of steel off the front end of one of those.”
