Wow, that looks awesome.

Do you fit in the garage? If so, how big is the gap?

Nah it doesnt fit in the garage, the front of the GOBI rack is just a bit to tall. I dont think it will fit in most parking garages also. :(

Thank you! I had the orginal chrome grill Line-Xed after having it for a month. Turned out awesome! One of my favorite things I did.
For the wheels, I just rattle-canned them with Rustoleum Hammered Black. Under $40 and about 4 hours of work they turned out great. When I scratch them up, I just re-paint them and they look brand new.
The tires are 35" Yokohama Geolander MT's. My room mate works for Yokohama so I got a killer deal on them. They are very sticky and perform great off road. When they wear out, I would like to grab some Toyo MT's or Goodyear MT's.

For hidden mods I have K & N Air charger, custom exhaust from the header back, Bilstein shocks and I also removed the rear seats for more room and weight reduction.

I hope to finish up some more stuff this weekend and ill post some pics.

You won't get most H1 owners to agree with that. :lol:
No disrespect intended, though. That is a sweet H3! really love the grill! Having it LineXed was a great idea! Gives it a serious off-road! Very intimidating!

"Right"

I will keep the 911C4S out and cram the H1 in.... The 911 is replaceable... The H1 is NOT.

Sorry shouldn't have made a universal.

I meant standard garage. h1sp probably has a batcave.

Ive broken 2 $500 mirrors trying to fit in a standard, I consider that a no fit.
My brother had to have his garage opening raised half a foot for his H2 to fit.

I didn't mean it in all seriousness, but we know when we're buying a hummer we're buying something BIG.

Naaa No bat cave here … but as I get older and more selfish …. I look for a larger garage and forget the house size.

My next house will have a 4 car garage … and I wont care If the house only has 1 room ...... no matter what she says :wink:

... please dont show her this post :lol:

I keep coming back to this thread just to see that grill! I even told BeastMaster about it today when I stopped by and noticed his wife's yellow H3 has a chrome grill. It's a perfect candidate for that terrific Line X treatment!

Hi Belvis,
Welcome to the forum. If you have any info on the h3's you want me to post I'd love to. Since I don't own one I can't do articles.

I'm in trouble. (that's not new) My h1 fits in my garage.

I will get some better pictures of the grill when I get a chance. I LOVE IT!

My local Line-X only charged $84 also. You could easily do it yourself if you buy one of those Rhino-Liner kits. I re-did my old roof rack with it and turned out awesome.

The local Hummer dealer liked it so much that they did it to a few of their H2's and H3's on the lot.

Thank you Chuck! Awesome site! 8)

Before I got the GOBI rack, my H3 would fit anywhere. Now I have to avoid all garages. I am used to that though since I had a Dodge Hemi truck with 37's that was all pre-runnered out.
