Postby B-HMMWV » Sat Aug 29, 2015 10:36 pm

Hello all! Watch the transformation of my 2003 H2 from a sad truck in need of new tires and lots of TLC into a lean (sort of), mean, off road machine! (Cool factory options, factory like custom parts, and tasteful upgrades to come!

Here she is on the day I bought her with 192,088 miles on the odometer, dirty as all get out and equipped with 4 bald BFGs . Fresh from NC.

Had to leave the H2 at the dealer today to have them do some work that I don't have time for. At least they let her sit on the display while she waits in line!

Installed two genuine GM-HUMMER hard shell roof storage pods. GM part #89006760. The grille guard has been removed, and is having the paint stripped again. Will be re-installed soon with more goodies.

Re-installed the grille guard with a fresh, glossy black paint job (I stripped it down to the bare metal and started over. I was dissatisfied with the previous paint job.) Also installed the grille guard mounted off road lights. GM part # 89006860. Factory light package stage 2/6 complete. She's looking mean now!

Finished wiring up my roof off road lights today (grille lights still need a wire harness)! They increased visibility from 50 yards (with headlights only) to 350+ yards (with the off road lights). They're awesome!

Installed two rare factory u-step packages. GM part #89006870. These steps are special, because due to their one bolt design, they can be removed from the vehicle in less than 30 seconds a piece for impromptu off-roading. Exterior convenience package 1/5 complete. Lacking exterior spare tire carrier, roof cargo rail handles, roof basket and side awning. These steps, while they appear to be fine, are flaking and need to be re-finished. Will post pics of the before/after paint job!

Just finished restoring and installing the u-steps and tail light guards. Sooo shiny. (GM part #s 89006870(2) and 17801243 respectively.) The steps' paint was faded and flaking off due to corrosion...same with the tail light guards. I fixed that! Factory armor package stage 2/2 complete.
