    I know the humvee was pretty capable but I always felt it was overdone, with no thought to operational economy or even fuel economy. Way too much $$$ for what you needed it to do.

    Good news for us that they're offering Humvees to the public now. I definitely want in on the iconic vehicle, although sadly enough, I don't think I could ever afford one, not in a lifetime. They're amazingly capable vehicles, provided you don't load them up with 300-pound armoured doors and windows they were never intended to carry.

    Money is always the obstacle...
    You can get a body kit to go on a Jeep. More interior room, better economy and more nimble in narrow areas...

    And there are some body kits for older Chevys too. Get a 6.5TD for authenticity.

    A Humvee could drive up a short wall. Not that that was particularly useful for anything. But hey, a Humvee could drive up a short wall.
    Who needs to drive up a short wall when you can just drive through it?

    US Army Humvees are for sale on GovPlanet dot Com every week. They've sold over 4000 already.
    Some as cheap as 3000USD (rough shape, need parts and work) up to $30,000 which are in very good shape, with a legal road title.

    I was looking to get one of the cheaper ones, but several factors stopped me.
    First one being these are for offroad use ONLY and the US will not give you a title for it. I asked at the MTO office and if America wont give me a title, Canada wont let me put it on the road.
    Next issue was "Q" demill military vehicles can only be sold to civilians from this site, so I would need a buddy to buy it for me.
    Decided to cancel. But it would be neat to have a real Humvee.

    Funny someone necro this thread. Little FYI, in 2007 the RG31 was fairly new for Canadians in Afghanistan, buddy was saying in 2010 they were junk. Asked what happened, and he said. We actually left them overseas, never brought them back.
