I am well aware of that. I specifically mentioned mil-spec in my first post and prnstr40 was calling them out for being unreliable. Make sense?
The post you quoted above didn't mention the Humvee or military spec. It mentioned H1, which is the civilian version of the US Military Humvee.

Of course the US Military vehicles are reliable, they're maintained very well. the average person isn't going to have a team of mechanics to repack bearings and check bolt torques every month.

Find a military auction u can get all kinds of good used trucks and hummers from them like a 2-ton for way cheaper just a heads up. Or if u have $40k get a FORD Raptor great for offroading.

Speaking from first hand expierence? How much expierence? I have been working on the Mil-spec H1's everyday for the past 4 years and have nothing bad to say about them. Just curious, what kind of problems have you seen?
well, the major pain in the ass was the trans going at 30k miles. there was multiple issues with the wheels and the inflation system, large amounts of paint peeling off in random spots/for no good reason, a handful of electric gremlins, on top of all of the required "maintenance"

Hummer h1's are awesome. If you can afford to buy and maintain I'd do it.

They are totally impractical and expensive but damn cool.
