Just out of curiosity, I understand the reason for the portal axles, but what's the advantage to the inboard brakes?

H1 Hummers (military and civilian) use inboard mounted brakes to accommodate the gear reducing hubs and give the vehicle silly amounts of ground clearance

I don't recall ever seeing a photo of your vehicles being wet. And the water appears to be falling from the sky?!

 

Good call on ditching the system. Truck looks good!

100% correct 

8 days of rain a year. My bikes/cars never leave garage in those 8 days. 
 

however, had a very late night. Left H1 in driveway. Must/fog/light rain - H1 got caught 

Oh well - it will certainly lower resale value . But the stock market and RE gains, will offset the H1 loss smiley

By recollection, the GVWR was high enough that they were non-catalyst vehicles.

I too drove H1s in the service.  I too would never buy one for personal use.  I can relate to the old codger.  I look forward to following along though.  690 lbs of stereo!  Wow!

Yeah, but would you approach a total stranger in a parking lot and tell them their car is stupid and they're an idiot for buying it? What a dick!
