Hummer H1

Does anyone have experience or know of shops who have built long travel pre runner type suspensions for H1 hummers.

I don't see the point of making an H1 prerunner. All that long travel stuff gets rid of a lot of the reasons why you would buy a hummer in the first place, the first being that everything is tucked up into the body for high clearance. I suppose you don't need it as much in the desert, but its still kinda silly to me. I'd much rather build a Nissan Titan or Toyota Pickup Pre-Runner, but maybe thats just me.

Has anyone made one of these that still uses the Portal units and all that?

Actually what I was thinking was to build Chromoly a arms which where longer by a few inches with mounts being moved inboard and a longer track outboard, with the lower A arm having an upward arch for more ground clearance. I am not sure if that would work with that vehicle, and of course it would require lengthened half shafts. I was just thinking you could achieve lift as well as more articulation, while adding strength and weight reduction to the unsprung mass using Chromoly and/or aluminiim.

By the way the link to RDC was pretty bad ass.
