Nice but I like how the Windrunner breaks down. Take down length is less than 32 inches.

The barrett .50 cal does as well. Basically breaks down into a barrell and receiver (upper and lower). The M82A1, or M82 for civilians, weighs about 30 lbs. (unloaded)...not a particularly light piece of equipment.

Well, I guess this got off topic for cool stuff....I guess that's why it's called chit-chat right? Now back to Hummers. Sorry dudes.

I have owned 2 H1 ( a 2002 Soft Top and a 2004 Wagon ) a real piece of crap off road and pretty scary nose diving , but I was COOOOOL *LOL*

The 02 gave so many problems, and mileage was about 8mpg , noisy as possible at 70mph., the wagon was more civil per se.

The only reason why I thing the Alpha will maintain its value ( kind of ) is that was the only Duramax/Allison combo, quiet, great mpg, bling interior incl Navigation, perfect for finding your way to the Mall.

I've heard tie rod ends were a weak point, but there are aftermarket parts to remedy that. The earlier trucks had aluminum housing front diffs that were prone to housing failures under extreme use as well, but the later trucks with the front lockers I believe switched to Iron housings.

Everything has a few weak points that need to be addressed if it is to be used reliably at the extremes enthusiasts seem to go to. Well, except Land Rovers of course

Damn, and I had $500K burning a hole in my pocket at that time...I decided to spend it all on Rover repairs since I couldn't find my vehicle of mass destruction...

Of course the portals are reducing the torque, but you are still putting a load of power through basically a GM 10 bolt diff. Yeah good luck with that.
Ohhh yes I have to agree. 20 years in the Marine Corps totally reinforces your view point. In fact I first fell in love with the Defenders during the first Gulf War. I watched the British Army's 7th Armored Brigade 110s go places out vaunted Hummves got routinely stuck.

I won't miss em.
