Hello all! Watch the transformation of my 2007 H3 from a sad, bald tire, barely luxury package, into a full blown Adventure-Luxury package. (Factory correct and dealership options only.)

(8/12/14)


Here she is on the day I bought her with 127,244 miles on the odometer, and 4 bald highway radials . Fresh from MA.

Bought new tires today! Cooper Discoverer ATP 265s. In addition, I removed the running boards and that damned plasti-dip and shined up the chrome, for that brilliant shiny glow. Also gave her the first Porterhaus detail, and dropped by the Hummer dealership for a check up. They let me play on the old display outside the showroom.

I've recently received my chrome roof rails in the mail (genuine GM), and picked up a NOS front mounted fog light package (part#19159112). These will be installed by the end of May by Classic Hummer. I would like to add a grille guard, fuel door, and OEM roof basket this summer. That depends on how much maintenance I have to do (Loooooooooong list of wants and needs).

Nice.
Be careful how much wt you put in those guys.
The elastic straps that hold them to the seat backs wears out pretty damn quick with just a moderate amount of wt.
Mine have proved very useful but got to the point they would not stay secured to the seats.
If you do not mind me asking, how did you manage to procure those bad boys?
One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.
