If you are going to buy a Humvee, you should just skip past all of the modern mass market versions with names like H2, H3…which were just styling exercises from the goons at General Motors. The correct way to drive a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle is to get a used military surplus version, like this next M998 Hummercamino. The typical HMMWV setup is a 4-door cabin, but the troop/cargo carrier version seen here has two doors and a large pickup bed that can be stuffed with gear or people. Find this 1993 AM General M998 offered for $11,000 in Baton Rouge, LA via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.

Up for sale is one of my restored HMMV’s we use as a shop truck. Runs and drives great, and we drive to NOLA and back in it once a month. It’s a great starter platform if you want to expand on it, or use it as a daily or weekend driver. All oils and greases are maintained with Schaeffer’s brand. The original starter is starting to go out, so the solenoid needs to be replaced ($150/part). I will replace if purchased.
It comes with the military containers in the truck bed.

Plenty of pics, so you know what you’re looking at. Happy to answer any questions! Serious buyers, as I’m busy restoring trucks and making furniture 😉
