I finally did it, I bought my dream car an AM General Hummer H1! Not only did I buy it, but in this video I take it off road, ford through flooded roads, and drive over cars and crush them. After years of hard work, dedication and passion, I was able to save up enough to buy a car, well technically a truck, that I have wanted since I was a kid. This video is super special to me and I hope you enjoy it! Also, there is a kinda-sorta ChrisFix face reveal in this video...

Hey guys chris fix here and holy smokes. I finally did it. I bought my dream car. It's sitting right off screen over there, yet it doesn't feel real now being a youtuber is an interesting job.

I never expected to do this. I always just wanted to help people i wanted to make videos teach people how to fix their cars at home in their driveway using common hand, tools that way they could learn how to fix their own car. They could get a new passion, a new hobby. Maybe a new career, but it's always been about helping people and showing them the proper way to fix their cars, and obviously it was working out because i hit 100 000 subscribers and youtube sent me out this exclusive silver play button.

Not many people around the world had this play button, it felt so good to get it, and this is about the time when i realized. I have something good going on here. I have something i'm helping a lot of people and i'm gon na work on this channel full-time now fast forward a little over a year and i hit 1 million subscribers. This is something that nobody thinks is obtainable and i did it.

I gave up so much. There was so much hard work, so much passion into each video to try to make this possible and help as many people as possible, and i did it and i remember tearing up as i was unboxing this thing. My parents were watching me and i could see how proud they were, even though they weren't completely sure what my job actually was. They weren't even sure if i could sustain myself and make a living out of this heck.

I wasn't even sure that what an amazing feeling now fast forward just a little bit more and i hit 2 million subscribers, so i thought it was time to get a dream car, but not a dream car. For me, a dream car for my mom, my mom and dad have always supported me, even though they didn't know. If this youtube thing was a good idea, and i should probably stick to my normal career, no matter what they still supported, everything i did they. Let me use this driveway, let me use their garage and let me fill it with tools and for that i got my mom her dream car.

What an incredible video i'll link it in the description you'll definitely be chopping onions as you watch that video. It is probably one of my favorite videos to date and then now we come to present time right now. This video i've hit over 5 million subscribers, but this time youtube doesn't give you a plaque for this milestone and i figured after all this hard work. The 16 hour days not taking a full day off for four years, basically doing as much as i can to help other people.

Well, it was finally time to reward myself plus i needed a daily driver instead of driving all my project cars because you guys know what that's like. So i bought my dream car or in this case my dream truck a 1996 am general hummer. H1. Now hold up hold up, i know before you start commenting.

Oh chris, it's unreliable. It gets horrible fuel economy, they're, so slow. They make no power. Their ride is super harsh they're.

Uncomfortable wait, wait, wait hold up. This is no regular hummer. This is a super super special hummer and i'm gon na show you why, but first, even if it was a stock, normal hummer. This is what i've wanted.

Since i was a little kid and like any dream car as a kid, you have posters on the wall and this poster sums it up. True, the h1 isn't for everyone, but it didn't matter to me because i found something that i really liked something that i wanted so bad. So anytime, i could find a model. I would go and pick it up and i'd play with it, imagining what it would be like to have my own hummer, and what is really cool is what was once a model car i would play with is now the real thing sitting in my driveway, but It didn't stop at model cars, every single video game that had the hummer in it i had to get because i wanted to drive it.

I wanted this car that bad and i already told you i have super supportive parents. Even when i was a kid, they would take me to the local dealership just to go and look at the hummers like a kid going to disney world and every time i went i'd make sure i'd, pick up a brochure and then i'd spend all night long. Just looking at everything, looking at the hummers going off-road and wanting to do exactly that, fording water, like that reading all the statistics going up and down mountains and hills, and i mean as a kid this was paradise. I got to see all the options it had and it's just such a cool thing and opening up.

This brochure is just bringing back good memories and, speaking of disney gm sponsors test track, it's a ride at disney world and that's me and my sister right there and yes, that is a hummer every time i'd go on the ride. The thing i liked the most was going to check out the hummer, seeing it up close, seeing the interior and just walking around and getting pictures in front of it. So, after all the toy cars, the brochures, the posters, the disney world, seeing these cars at the dealership, i finally did it. This hummer right here is mine and with less than 12 000 made from 92 to 2006.

This was not easy to find and a lot of these hummers are in bad shape, they cost a ton of money and they cost even more money to fix up. So let me show you the advertisement that caught my eye and how i found this. So the same exact site that i found the 300 del sol and the same exact site that i found my mom's dream car i've been searching auto tempest every day for my dream car. The good thing about this site.

Is it searches a bunch of different sites? All at once so ebay and cars.com, for example, it'll search. All of that, so you don't have to go to each individual website. So it's really helpful and if you go and search for a hummer well, there are tons of hummers for sale. Even though there's not really many out there, so i searched and searched.

And finally i found this one. He didn't have too many pictures posted on here, but this was definitely one of my favorite colors and this thing looked hooked up and when i took a look down in the description man, this thing was hooked up. This is exactly what i wanted and, as you know, the rest is history, so this is the third car i found on this website i'll link this in the description, so you guys could try it out, and i want to thank autotempest for supporting the video. I also want to thank you guys, because on instagram you guys sent me tons of dms with all different hummers from all over the united states, trying to help me find my dream car.

So i really appreciate all the support from everyone, so a reputable shop that only works on hummers built this one up and customized it. Here's the invoice it's six pages long and we see the total at the end here. This build without the cost of the hummer cost, the guy 58 000 and that's with a 12 000 credit. So this build cost 70 000.

On top of the cost of the hummer, so let me show you the main things that this build included and why this is the ultimate homer. So, let's dive right into it. So the first thing and the most major modification that makes this hummer special is located under the hood to open the hood. We have to move this push bar, so you have to pull this out first and then you can push the push bar forward so that we have access to the hood.

Now, with the hood, we have a latch here that you just unlatch and now we can lift up the lightweight fiberglass hood. So when this was stuck, it had a 6.5 liter turbo diesel engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. It made 170 horsepower and 290 foot-pounds of torque, and that is for a 8 000 pound truck. Now it was slow.

0-60 was 16 seconds. Yes, 0-60 was 16 seconds, not the quarter-mile 0-60. It was very slow and on a good day, you got 10 miles a gallon, so it wasn't very efficient so that old transmission and engine was yanked out and they installed this. This is a duramax diesel, 6.6 liter lmm diesel engine mated to a allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission.

This engine has many upgrades full straight pipe: four-inch exhaust, upgraded, radiator, upgraded intercooler and much more so it makes 450 horsepower and 900 foot pounds of torque and what i'm telling you this thing is a torque monster, i'm not even kidding. This is insane. Why do i? Let's go for a ride first off, listen to how good this sounds. It's not too loud and the turbo spool sounds amazing, but the best part is with the upgraded duramax engine and allison transmission.

It's super reliable and it drives like a normal car or truck on the road, and i get an average of 15 miles, a gallon, which is better than many pickup trucks and suvs. And then, when you go to merge on a highway, this 8 000 pound truck. We have a lot of traffic right here, watch this baby. Just to give you an idea.

The zero to 60 in this takes only seven seconds, that's insanely fast, and we merge into traffic with no problems at all. Now, when you add power and speed to a four ton vehicle, you also have to have good braking. So all four brake pads have been upgraded to alpha brakes, which are huge and if you're looking over here and you don't see brakes, don't worry you're not going crazy. Normally the brakes would be right here, but in this case we have a portal axle, which is an amazing piece of technology.

I'll, explain it in a little, but instead of having brakes right here like a normal car. If we follow the axle into the frame of the car, you can see the brakes are located right in there, and so you can better visualize, where these brakes are. Let's step back for a second they're, located right in the middle at the frame rails right there and there's three benefits to that. The first benefit is: there's less unsprung weight, because you don't have your brakes out at the wheels, so you get better handling.

The second benefit is, you have way more protection up underneath for off-roading and making sure nothing hits the brakes or damages the brakes, and then the third one is with inboard brakes, you're able to fit larger brakes and make more braking power. And when i'm talking about braking power, it is incredible on this car. Why not? Let's go test them out when i get to the cones, i'm gon na slam on the brakes. So, let's get up to 60 miles an hour and see how fast we could stop and we're a little bit above 60 and i'm gon na slam on the brakes.

Oh man holy smokes. That was insane. I can't believe how hard this thing breaks so now we can measure the distance from the front tires all the way to the cones using this measuring wheel, and we have just under 140 feet for this 8 000 pound hummer to stop from 60 miles an hour. So we have a crazy, powerful and reliable duramax engine.

We have a super strong, alison transmission and those brakes are crazy. Good to stop this 8 000 pound beast, but wait. There is more so when they did the conversion they had to take the body of the car and lift it off the frame, and since they had access to the frame, they sealed and painted the entire thing check out these pictures. This is what the car looked like at the shop getting the conversion done and since my buddy wanted to test out the weight capacity of his new lift, i was able to get a good look underneath the hummer so check this out.

The underside of this truck is spotless, there's no rust at all and everything is painted and looks amazing. You can also see the undercarriage protection like this diff protector and the sheet steel that protects the fuel tank, so nothing punctures the tanks while you're off-roading. It also has the transmission and engine protection and basically the whole underside, has the optional undercarriage protection kit. So when you go off-road or drive over cars, which i will be doing to finish up this video, you don't damage the vital parts of the truck and i still can't believe how clean this truck is, and not only is everything looking clean and painted, but it's Also brand new, all the suspension components from the lower ball joints to the upper ball joints, including 12 000 pound axles, well they're all brand new on all four corners.

So not only aesthetically does this truck look good, but it also performs like a brand new truck with all the suspension components being brand new. Now talking about the aesthetics and off-road capabilities, they added a front push bar and the reason why you need a good front. Push bar is because this is a lightweight fiberglass, so you want to make sure there's no intrusion of sticks or branches or anything into the engine bay. They have brand new xenon headlights, which work really well check this out at night.

Here's a dark road with the lights off and then, when we switch them on boom, you could see everything plus there's a nice cut off, so you don't blind other drivers, but look at that. It is nice and bright, and these are amazing headlights for a truck designed in the 80s. Now what doesn't work well? Are the off-road lights flip them on and they light the hood of the car up and make you night blind and it's just old technology. The halogen lights just aren't good as the new leds, which are a lot brighter and throw the light better and those off-road lights are located right up there on the custom light bar there's four of them, they're halogen, they're old school.

They draw a lot of amperage and you saw they don't light up very well, so i'm going to replace those with some high quality led lights. I need to figure that out, but the other thing that this thing has is a 12 000 pound winch bumper. So there is a 12 000 pound winch in here it could pull literally everything i pulled the car with the brakes on and a hummer didn't even budge, so we'll have no problem pulling ourselves out of anything we get stuck in or helping other people get out Of whatever they get stuck in and the good thing about this aftermarket bumper is, we maintain the stock 72 degree approach. Angle, that's 18 degrees away from climbing a vertical wall, and this is impressive, because stock without a winch, the approach angle is 72 degrees and stock.

With the hummer winch bumper, the approach angle gets cut to 47 degrees, and so you can see the difference right here is the massive stock winch bumper compare that to this custom, one which is really low profile. So this is a nice upgrade now at the back of the hummer, we have a custom ladder, rack bumper, so we have a bumper with a ladder that goes up to the roof. I'll show you that in a second and this custom ladder rack bumper has helicopter d-rings. Yes, you heard right helicopter d-rings and the reason why they call these helicopter d-rings is because in the military, this is where they would strap your hummer to a helicopter to transport.

It into the middle of the battlefield or into remote locations, they even parachute these hummers out of planes, so this rear bumper is no joke. It is very strong and it has a trailer hitch on it, and this trailer hitch is something i needed because well check. This out, because i finally have a truck that could tow. I picked up a 28 foot, aluminum trailer for the drift car and my future project cars so check this out.

This is such a huge trailer 28 feet and this truck pulls it effortlessly. It's a bare bones trailer because i'm going to show you guys how to hook this up instead of spending a ton of money and getting everything already put in it, i'm going to show you how to save half the cost anyway. That's for another video got the side escape door, the drift car future projects, all that stuff is going to be right here and i'm gon na have a giant tool box in the front with cabinets. It's gon na be awesome and the best thing is because of my dream car i'm able to get something like this, because i'm able to tow it and this hummer tows it perfectly barely any sag in the rear and we haven't even done weight distribution.

There's no car in here, yet so it's so nice and i'm so glad i was able to get a trailer. So that is where that tow hitch will come in handy and if you can't tell already i'll be using this dream truck, it's not gon na sit in a garage. It's not gon na be used every once in a while. It's going to be my daily, so we're going to be towing things with it, we're going to be going off road and check out this room in the back here.

There's plenty of room back here for fishing tackle, for whatever it is, camping supplies stuff that you need to put in the back of a truck, and i love how that sounds, and now there's even more room upstairs and yes upstairs. So you could actually climb up this, and that gives you access to this gargantuan roof rack where you can store whatever you want on it, it's cool, because you could actually walk on the roof of your car. Now. Not only can you store stuff up here, but if you want you go camping, you pitch a tent up here.

If you're going to the beach set up, some chairs put the fishing poles out and you got a nice vantage point from up here. It's pretty cool! So there you go, there are all the modifications to this truck that make it perform just as good as it looks now, since this is going to be my daily. Another important part of this truck is going to be the interior, so, let's check it out now inside the hummer is super. Nice and comfortable has almost like a trucker feel to it.

The captain's seats are super comfortable and since this is not the military version, this is the civilian version. We have a nice air conditioning system. This is actually the upgraded one, so it's a 3 000 upgrade, so it blows colder and warmer. Since we have such a big interior, you have a radio and a sound system that sounds pretty good, so that is very nice.

It's enjoyable to drive around just play some music. We have power windows, power, locks, your normal shifter, to put it into drive and reverse, and we have tons of gauges here that give you a lot of good information voltage, oil pressure, water temperature, fuel rpms. Now my favorite ones, there's two awesome gauges on this. Now.

My favorite ones are the fuel gauge and the central tire inflation system. The reason why the fuel gauge is so cool is because we have two tanks in this. So if you see this right here, you can see it says: fuel main and auxiliary watch the fuel gauge, as i switch from main to auxiliary, so the main tank is 25 gallons. The auxiliary tank is 17 gallons, giving us a total of 42 gallons over 600 miles of range and there's just something about being able to go from a half a tank to a full tank with the flip of a switch, that's really cool now.

My next favorite feature engage is the central tire inflation system. So with this with the flip of a switch, we could inflate all four tires deflate all four tires or we could pick the front and inflate just the front or just the rear. So, if we're at the trail or something - and we want to deflate the tires - you just hit this and the air will get let out of the tires, no need to get out of the car and deflate each one by hand. And you can see how the tire bulges out, which gives you more surface area, therefore more grit, and then, when you're done going off-road, you flip the switch and inflate your tires, no more waiting on lines for the air pump at the beach or the off-road park.

You don't have to go to the gas station, you don't have to wait for all the other jeeps and trucks you just flip that switch and you drive now it's gon na take some getting used to and what i don't really like is there's no horn. Here. You hit this there's nothing. The horn is actually located on the signal.

Stalk and the horn also doesn't sound that great for this truck. It should be like manly and beefy, because this is a giant truck coming at you. It's like a little italian horn there. So we're gon na have to fix that.

Another thing, that's kind of strange, is how far away you are to your passenger. If i wanted to pet cooper, i have to really reach over there you're so far away coop. I can't reach the passenger side and the interior here is huge, because we have this dog box right here, so the dog box is actually a housing for the engine. The engine is right here, because it's a mid-engine vehicle and underneath this is actually the engine in the military they'll pull this out and you'll be able to get access to it and easily replace stuff.

Then we have the transmission that goes back here and then the transfer case under here. So the reason why they do this is because it allows the engine transmission and transfer case to be lifted up into the vehicle and provide amazing ground clearance. 16 inches from the factory, and you still maintain a low center of gravity, which is amazing and another reason why this truck is just so wide is because it needs to fit within the tracks of a tank. So when this is out on a convoy, it doesn't have to go off-road the tanks flatten the ground, pretty good, so the wheels fit right in the tracks of the tanks, and that gives the soldiers a smooth ride.

So it's actually really comfortable in here. It has almost like a cockpit feeling to it, and the front here for driving is great great visibility, but let me show you the back and with such a large truck. What do you guys think how many people can we fit in here? Eight well, you'd! Be wrong: the hummer actually doesn't have a lot of seating room in the civilian configuration, because we have this giant dog house in the middle that houses, the engine, transmission and transfer case. So in reality we could see four people comfortably and the wagon this one specifically has the option of this weird bench seat.

I guess you could use for kids, there's really not much leg room and there's really not much head room. You'd hit your head against the top, if you're an adult sitting here, but i'm probably going to remove it and put some type of storage rack or something in here. That way, you don't have to put everything in the back, but as a passenger there's four of them that can sit comfortably and i really mean comfortably. You have these nice leather seats, you have plenty of leg, room and speaking of leg room.

Let me show you something on the passenger side, this is a really cool option that most hummers don't have, and it's this knee cut out right here when they do the engine swap, they add in this knee cut out because stock, it's horrible, this protrudes out here And takes away all your leg room and as a passenger, you want to be comfortable and have as much leg room as possible. So now there's plenty of room, and this is just a really nice simple feature that makes this truck nice to ride in so daily driving. This hummer is not going to be difficult. It's actually going to be really nice because of all the options it has, but this hummer isn't perfect.

There are a couple issues we need to fix. Let me show you what they are. As you guys already know, i don't like to buy vehicles that are perfect, because i like to fix them up. I saved the money on the purchase price for doing my own work, and this does need a bunch of work.

It only has 20 000 miles on the swap, but it's due for a bunch of fluid changes. The oil's brand new, the coolant's brand new, but it needs brand new fluid in the portal axles. There's four of those there's two differentials that need fluid: the transmission needs a fluid and a filter, and the transfer case needs fluid. So all of that would cost a lot of money if a hummer mechanic did it.

Also, we need to put in some new switches for the windows and for the locks, because the front ones don't work. We need to add a light bulb for the central tire inflation system gauge and since we have seventy thousand dollars put into the car with engine and transmission, all that we're gon na make sure that we protect it. So i'm getting some locking fuel caps to put in so nothing goes into the tank that shouldn't be there and finally, we're gon na add a snorkel. So if we go off-road and we go in the water and get a little bit of a bow wake, we don't have to worry about sucking up water into our very expensive engine.

So all that's gon na be pretty simple to do, but it saves us a ton of money from the purchase price and it's gon na be pretty cool to show you guys how to do all this. It's very quick, very easy. So, let's get started, we're gon na start with the four portal axles and change the fluid in those. So to get the fluid out of the hub, we need to take the wheel off so to take the wheel off.

We need to jack up the hummer and i ended up having to buy a new jack that could actually lift this huge truck and once it's lifted slide, a jack stand under the frame and safely let down the truck onto the jack stand now. This might look a little bit different, because this right here is the central tire inflation system. So what we need to do is remove this protector right here and now there's a quick disconnect which we could disconnect like that, and now we can remove all eight lug nuts holding in this giant 37 inch tire and with all the lugs removed carefully remove this Very heavy 110 pound wheel and get it out of the way. So this back here is a portal axle and it's a pretty cool piece of technology because it gives you maximum ground clearance.

So in a normal car or truck like underneath my pickup truck, the axle goes straight into the hub, so you only have this much ground clearance. You can't get any more than that unless, if you increase the size of the tires, but with a portal axle, the axle comes in from the top and not in from the middle, so we increase our ground clearance significantly. We also allow ourselves to run central tire. Inflation, which goes through the middle and that's what goes into the hub.

So that's the benefit of running a portal axle. You also have a gear reduction in here, so it's a one point: nine, five to one so basically a two to one gear reduction. So every two spins of the axle equals one spin of the tire, basically doubling torque now, in order to drain this, we have the drain bolt underneath the portal axle right down there. So that's where we drain it from and then to fill it up.

We have the fill bolt, which is right there. It's very simple, so let's change the fluid in this. I always start by removing the fill bolt first, because if we remove the drain bolt first and can't remove the fill bolt well, how are you supposed to fill it back up? Okay, so with the fill bolt removed? Now, let's remove the drain, bolt so break this loose and remove it the rest of the way by hand. Now, as that drains out.

Let's add some teflon tape to the threads of the drain, plug that way it seals the threads and it won't leak. Now we can put the drain plug back in and tighten it up so that it's snug don't over, tighten it next. Let's fill this portal axle up with gear oil. It takes adw90 and you fill it up until it comes out of the fill hole, then we could screw in our fill plug and snug it up, and that's how you replace the fluid in the portal axles now there's three more.

I need to do so. I'm gon na get the wheel on i'm not gon na, bore you and show you the other three i'll get those done off camera and then we'll move on to the next thing. So, with the fluid changed in all four portal axles, the next thing to do is change the fluid in the differentials there's a front differential and a rear differential. I already changed the fluid in the front differential, so let me show you how to change the fluid in the rear differential now this right here is the differential up here is the fill plug down.

Here. Is the drain plug so let's break loose the fill plug and remove it and then let's remove the drain plug and drain all the gear oil out with all the oil drained out, let's reinstall the plug and tighten it up, so it's snug! Next, let's add the new gear oil and it takes about two quarts of oil and we know it's full when the oil comes out of the fill hole. Just like that. So now let's tighten the fill bolt, so it's snug good.

So with the differential, fluid replaced in the front and rear differentials now we can move on to replacing the transmission fluid. So this is our transmission pan right here and we have a drain plug. So we don't have to undo the entire pan to drain it. We also have a transmission filter right here, so this is actually gon na be a really simple job.

So first, let's break through the drain bolt and remove it and the trans fluid looks nice and pink, which is good so we'll let this drain completely reinstall the drain bolt and tighten it down. So it's snug good. So with the pan completely drained. Now, let's go and remove our filter loosen the filter with an oil filter wrench, and then it could come off the rest of the way by hand and let's try not to make a mess so out with the old and in with the new and with the New filter, since it goes straight up and down, i always like to fill filters up that way.

They don't run dry when you first start up the car with a transmission. It's probably not really necessary. There's a ton of fluid still left in there anyway, but why not? It takes a couple extra seconds and it's only beneficial so now we could grab our filter. Another thing to do is lubricate this o-ring on the top here, with a little bit of transmission, fluid that'll make it easier to come off when we have to replace this again and now we can take this and install it in the hummer.

So let's get this aligned and screw it on by hand, and you only want to hand tighten oil and transmission filters. They don't ever have to be tightened any more than hand tight, and the last thing to do is to write the mileage on the filter. Just for a reference so a year or more later, i could remember what the mileage was when i change this out. Okay, so with the pan drained and filter replaced, let's head up to the engine where the dipstick is located.

So we could fill this transmission back up and it's very important that you use the correct transmission fluid for your transmission. This allison 1000 transmission uses dexron 6. Full synthetic, if you use anything else, it will damage it. Transmissions are very picky and we drained out about seven quarts.

So now we need to fill with seven quarts now, while this isn't a complete flush, it does change out about half the fluid, which is good. Since our fluid was already in good shape and with his last court finished up, we could remove the funnel and put the dipstick back in to take a cold measurement. Now, let's pull it out and look at that right at the cold fill line perfect. So, with our transmission, fluid replaced and good to go now, let's go under the truck and replace the transfer case fluid this right here is the transfer case.

It allows you to go into two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. So, let's change the fluid start by removing the fill bolt, and i don't know if you guys are noticing a pattern here and then remove the drain bolt and it's good we're changing this fluid out, because that should be a bright red like our transmission fluid. So, with all the fluid drained out now, let's tighten up the drain bolt and you guessed it so that it's snug, then we can pump in the transmission fluid until it comes out of the fill hole and finally tighten down the fill bolt and that's all there Is to replacing the transfer case fluid and with that all the fluids in this truck are brand new and the truck is ready to go well almost. We have a couple little things that we need to do so, let's start out by installing brand new window switches and door locks.

So here are the buttons that need to be replaced. Listen to this, it locks perfectly fine, but there's no unlock at all and then the windows don't work in either direction. So both of these need to get replaced so to get access to the switches. We need to unscrew the four screws holding it in and then we can remove the wires from the back of the switches and finally push the switches out of the holder so out with the old and in with the new, and these just push into the holder.

Like that and a little trick is to add some silicone paste to your electrical connectors and that prevents moisture from corroding the connection, then we can connect the wires to the new switches and screw in all four screws that hold the panel into place. Alright. So let's try it out and we have our windows, which work perfectly and beautiful the door locks work perfectly as well. So that is done and not only do these buttons work better, they light up and they look way better.

These buttons are old and tired. So that's beautiful glad that is done next. Let's real quickly replace the light bulb inside the central tire inflation system gauge at night. You can see the lights work on everything except this gauge, so let's fix that and this gauge is held in with four screws.

So, let's loosen them all up and then we can pop the gauge out and let's take a look at the bulb. No wonder we don't have a bulb, so let's install a new bulb and hopefully that fixes that and a quick test beautiful and i'm glad. That's all it was so now, let's get the gauge back into place and tighten down all four screws to hold it in beautiful. So let's try it out all right.

That's what i'm talking about. Okay, the last two things we need to do: super quick and easy fuel doors and snorkel. So let's go get these fuel doors installed. So let's come around the side of the truck and there are two fuel doors back here.

We'll start with the main fuel tank, and all we need to do is remove the six bolts holding the stock fuel filler in then we can place the new fuel door over the stock one and then screw down the six brand new stainless steel bolts like so Now, let's open it up and there's one more bolt, we need to tighten that holds down the fuel filler cap and then we can lock up the fuel door and check this out. This looks so good. Now we have a key to unlock it and to lock it, so nobody could put anything in our fuel tank and not only that, but this looks amazing, especially compared to the old school style. So now, let's install the other fuel cap on the auxiliary tank and instead of showing you the entire process out with the old and in with the new, and the last thing to do is get my keychain and put the new key on there.

That way, when i fill up i'll, be able to open the fuel tank, so these look great and they function. Nobody could get in here and put anything in the fuel tanks, perfect. One more thing left to do and the last thing is to install a snorkel. All this is, is a pvc coupler pipe, and the reason why this is so important to do is because we're actually going to be using this truck off-road for real we're going to have water up to here, but we're going to be pushing a bow wick a Bowie could potentially come up and over and then this is where the air intake is for the engine.

So if a bow weight comes over and floods this well, we could ingest water into the engine which would cause it the hydro lock. So a simple solution is just to raise this up a little bit and that's where this pvc pipe will come in handy we're going to make it look nice, it's not going to look cheap and it's actually going to look like it fits plus. It's going to be completely functional, so let's go paint this black. Now anytime, you paint prep is the most important thing, we're going to be using an adhesion promoter, primer and the same brand, we're going to be using a flat, protective enamel now to prep our pvc.

You want to make sure you scuff up the surface, so we're using 400 grit, so it has some scratches on it for the paint to bite into and after it's all scuffed up now we want to grab some soapy water and just spray it down to remove All the dirt and debris and any dust and oils we have on here now we could go and paint this. So we're going to start with an adhesion promoter. You want to do three light and even coats, and this stuff is going to help bond our black paint to the pvc, so it's less likely to flake and it'll have better durability and after letting that dry for five minutes now we can move on to our Flat black color coat just like the primer coat. We want to spray three light and even coats working all the way around the pvc coupler make sure you use an overlapping pattern to build up the coats and always follow the instructions on the spray can, especially for drying times.

Now, as we wait for that to dry, let's remove the snorkel top. All we have to do is unscrew the hose, clamp and then slide this off and when the snorkel is dry, we can install it and look at how good this came out so set it in place and then i'm going to tap it down into the fitting. So it's watertight and finally add that snorkel top and tighten it down and check that out. That looks so good.

Not only does it match the black and it looks amazing, but it's completely functional if we have a bow wave and it comes over we're not going to suck in water now, because this is lifted up now. It is time to actually put this thing to the test: we're going to go, off-roading we're going to go through some water and we're going to go right over some cars. So, let's get out there. So there aren't too many legal spots to go off-road in new jersey, but i do know a few in south jersey and to get to one of them there are some decent ruts.

We need to cross. Luckily, with this hummer's 16-inch, ground clearance and four-wheel drive system. Well, stuff like this is nothing so, let's go and test out the snorkel and the water forwarding capabilities of this truck all right check this out. We are about to test out that snorkel and i mean test out.

There is some deep water here we're in between two cranberry bogs and there is a flooded path here. It goes over 30 inches, so we're allowed to go technically 30 inches before we have an issue, but we could definitely go over as long as it's not for extended periods of time and we're not stopping it. We could stop in 30 inches, but that's why we have the snorkel so that if we get a bow wake or something we don't have to worry about water getting sucked in. So i aired down the tires.

We have a nice big footprint and we're about to try this out and see if we make it time to put the hummer to the test baby, and that was insane. Oh man, let's turn around because we need to do that again and we have water up to the top of the hood and remember our tires are 37 inches tall, so we're in over three and a half feet of water effortlessly holy smokes. That was insane. So we were way above we're like right about here in water and there's a little bit of water in here.

Not a big deal it drains out, but we made it. We made it all the way across that was insane the snorkel oh check this out. We got some lily pads up here. The snorkel worked perfect.

That is exactly what we wanted if there was a bow wick that came over, which we didn't have too much water coming up too high, but if there was a bow weight coming over, it wouldn't suck it in like the stock location, that's exactly what we wanted And man, oh man, what a cool cool thing to do: a cool thing to be able to go through that much water confidently. There was no tire spin. You could air down no problem at all. Oh man! I love this thing now.

The next thing we're doing is even crazier. Oh, i can't wait. You guys. I've been i've been planning this out for so long.

You guys are gon na love it. It is nuts, okay. So to finish off this video in the most epic way, i could think of we're gon na be doing something really crazy and awesome. I've been planning this out in my head for the longest time.

Finally, i'm able to do it, so let me show you what we're gon na be doing all right and there's no better way to finish up this video than take my dream car, the hummer and drive it over a pair of cars. Every hummer owner has to do this. It's just it's a rite of passage, so we have two honda civics here, don't worry, they're gon na get scrapped anyway, for you, honda lovers and we're gon na go and drive over them. Now i am a little bit nervous.

This is uh watching a video is one thing, but actually doing it in real life is completely different. So it's a little scary but uh. What we're gon na be doing is pulling the car right up to the front here. There's a couple things that can go wrong: we need to make sure that the roof collapses evenly on each one so that we don't roll over and then at the end, when we're gon na go off, i'm actually gon na go completely off.

That's the goal. We're gon na go all the way to the back and drive completely off. I have to be careful because there is an overhang on the hummer. It is armored, but i don't want to damage it.

I just got this thing. I don't want to ruin it. So, let's finish this up in an awesome finale: let's drive over some hondas, okay, let's get my seat belt on and i can't believe i'm about to do this. I'm gon na air down the tires just a little bit just so we can get some extra grip, and here we go.

Let's drive over some cars and i'm gon na drive up right to the front until i bump up on the cars and now we're gon na, send it holy smokes. This is insane i'm running over actual cars. This is so crazy. I can't see anything the hummer's just tilted up into the air and i think i'm not getting any grip.

Okay. Basically, i need more speed. So, let's back off the cars and try again come on baby, let's get some grip here. Oh there we go all right.

Whoo yeah huh, all right there we go so that is how you finish off a video on your dream truck. How insane was that going over these cars was just it's. It's like you, can't feel the adrenaline through the video, and it looks like nothing when you do it in a youtube video, but in real life it is intense, it's so cool. It's such a weird feeling to feel the roof collapse.

The glass collapse, the car tilting sideways, and this thing is just a beast: the undercarriage protection worked, the central tire inflation system worked; everything worked, that is what i'm talking about. I don't know if you can tell if i'm excited here, but i do want to thank you guys. This is incredible, and it's only because of you guys that i was able to get my dream truck. And hopefully my videos have been helpful and if you guys were helped by any of my videos, if you fix something on your car or truck or if you're able to learn something new comment below tell me what you were able to learn.

That's what drives me! That's what keeps me going keeps me pushing. I haven't had a day off a full entire day off in four years, because of making videos and running this youtube channel totally. Okay with me, because that's what drives me teaching you guys teaching the whole entire world how to properly fix their car, save money. All that! That's what it's all about to me so comment below and let me know what you've learned from my channel also.

Let me know what your dream car or truck is. This is incredible. I hope the hard work that you guys put in the passion that you guys put in to your job, to your work, pays off and you'll be able to get your dream vehicle. As always.

    In 1986 at a remote base we got some of the first Hum Vee's to replace the 60's jeeps we were using. 35 years later , I remember it was like yesterday, I fell in love as we were trying them out driving up a 60degree bolder like it was glued to the ground. scared the crap out of me cause I thought it was going to flip over. nope, right up to the top . One pulled an armored trac out of the mud… ( looks like a tank with a 50 cal on top, don't remember the real name . but it was stuck and the hum vee just helped it along. got some good sleep in those things, it was good to be young and have pride in the mission and the President . now we get little girls raped and soldiers killed , and allies left behind . things change with time.
