“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.”

“And how about all those H3’s out there?”

I called Hummer. I asked them “when are you going to offer a real motor in the H3?” - they told me “probably, never”.

I like the size and shape of the H3, but it needs a better motor. I’m thinking 3.0 V6 turbo diesel, and they wouldn’t be able to keep them in stock. Oh, and a manual tranny. yeah, thats the ticket !
