Rob’s Custom Duramax Hummer H1

We are very excited to wrap up an amazing custom build for Rob.

After converting Robs Hummer to a Duramax Diesel with the Allison Transmission, we stripped his hummer down to Raw Aluminum and Steel. Rob then flew out for a quick visit to see the progress. After he saw his vehicle in a stripped down form, he turned to us and asked if we can leave it raw! With a little thought we said, “why not”.

We spent the rest of the day planning out how to accomplish this for Rob and decided that it would be best to do a two tone finish because of the fiberglass hood and steel doors. So Rob decided to go for it and as you can see in the pictures, it is nothing short of amazing!

After Robs Hummer was stripped from paint, we did a brushed finish on the aluminum. The 4 doors and a number of small accessories went out for a textured black powder coated finish. The tricky part of the paint and body work was integrating the fiberglass hood with the brushed aluminum finish. We decided to skin the top center section and follow it up with aluminum rivets to match the H1’s riveted finish. This was really tough and time consuming to get just right. We ended up going through 3 sheets of aluminum and many weeks of tweaking. The final product is a perfect balance of textured black paint and brushed aluminum work. Finally the raw aluminum body was prepped and painted with POR15 for a heavy duty clear coat finish.

On the inside we did a complete interior redesign by giving it a rouged “roll cage” style dash, custom gauges, iPad integration, custom switches, carpet and sound system. The great thing about the interior is that it really brings that rouged look and feel inside Robs Hummer without loosing the creature comforts.

We wrapped up the outside with our new LED Light Package, Search and Rescue Rear Winch Bumper and a number of other appointments.

This truck is by far one of the most unique Hummers to hit the trail!

We hope you enjoy your new Hummer Rob, just make sure to take care of our baby!!!

NEW H1 Rock Rails

Predators Rock Rails are the answer to extreme 4 wheeling! Our rails will protect your doors and the side of your vehicle from rock damage. They allow you to stand off from a rock, hill, tree etc, by pushing the contact point out 3” and can allow you to pivot from them increasing your offroad ability. They additionally substantially strengthen your body by strengthening the most vulnerable point on the side of your Hummer.

To build the finest in Rock Rails, we utilized double wall ¼” Steel design which is fullywelded and boxed for the ultimate in strength, function and quality. Predators unique design utilizes an angular construction which wraps under the factory Rocker Panel Protection (RPP) substantially increasing the strength of the factory protection and adding a ¼” plate of steel that extends 3” under your Hummer. This extension under the RPP increases the strength by direct-bolting to both the side and bottom of the RPP there by ading a perfect Rail to slide on.

We didn’t stop there! On the front and rear, we have caped the Rock Rails to add additional strength and protection on the approach and departure from rocks. This gives substantial strength to the body and stock RPP by forming the new Rock Rails arround the entire outside contact surface of your stock RPP.

Next, we strengthened the main contact point of the Predator Rock Rails using Extruded Steel that is a full ½” thick on the outside contact corner! Finally we triangulated the Rail by boxing in the inside with another piece of 1/4 “ Steel which eleminates any flexing or bending from the Rock Rail. All hardware is flush mounting to offer a clean and smooth finish under your Hummer.

Retail Price is $1295. For a limited time our Rock Rails are on sale for $1150! Act soon before this sale is gone! Call in your order and mention Promotion Code: RR115
