Thinking about buying a US Military surplus Humvee?
This video shows the condition our latest Hummer was in when we purchased it from the USMC, as well as some highlights of repairs and upgrades required to get it running and roadworthy.

We took a big risk and bought a non-running HMMWV for sale at Govplanet.com
It proved more challenging than we had hoped it would be to get it running. But we worked hard to resurrect and upgrade this beast... and saved a TON of money in the process.

More info on the Battlewagon 2.0 can be found on our project overview page:

I love that you bought a "cup holder" 17:30 that came with a free Hummer. Bargain of the century if you ask me.
I saw the thumbnail and had to watch you "pick up a HMMWV" with the forklift. I was wondering how you approach a request from a family member to "pickup the house" while cleaning.
Looking forward to seeing your rig being used in videos. I think this will serve as an inspiration to folks as there are a lot of people wanting to do something similar, regardless of what vehicle they can make work for them. Cherokee to HUMVEE.
