true. but that is not a hummer its a yukon. the only hummers are the h1s but im sure a unimog would go right tru there. put a snorkal on a 404 unimog and u will drown be4 it turns off.

I doubt some one who knows how to drive an h1 off road would get stuck. I was at a hummer homecoming in 02(pretty sure that was when it was) and they do some pretty crazy stuff with them.

I wouldn't be suprised if most all off-roading vehicles got stuck. Even the Hummer can't ford waters over a certain amount deep.

I agree with the other guys...a real Hummer is an H1!

^thats some good mud boggin'. That douche in the hm2-3 was retarded for even trying to drive through that deep of water. I have driven a true Humvee through the thickest muck imaginable and with a full combat load and 300 pound armor plated doors, and still i wouldn't try driving through that. maybe if i had an old 85 Silverado on 40's i'de giver it a shot

I'm sure a bunch of Wrangler's could get through there. I work for a Jeep Aftermarket Parts company, trust me I know.

Here's a near stock CJ running through deep as anything water:
Click the image to open in full size.

His main issue is the stock BFG A/T's. When he hit the water they turned to slicks in the muck at the bottom and afforded him absolutely no traction. I don't know enough about H2's, but front/rear lockers would've helped like a **** too... I've been through stuff deeper than that and made it all.. also been through deeper stuff and been stuck (broken 4WD due to vacuum disconnect 2 piece pass side axle shaft not engaging!!):

And they STILL cost half the price of an H2, if not more than half the price. I don't like Rubicon's personally (Real Jeeps are built, not bought) but if you took a stock Rubicon against a stock H2, the Rubicon would completely crush it.

Just look at some of the videos on you tube of the h1 off road its crazy. But just like anything else you have to know how to drive it to make it work right. This one guy i met had a 502 in his for being 8-10k lbs this thing was fast.

How many vehicles you see do this stock?

lol that guy driving that hummer has nooo clue how to drive that thing. Besides, I think most any vehicle would get stuck in that mud pit he drove into anyway.
