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!!!

Touch A Truck 2011

Touch A Truck was a huge success! Thanks to all of you that came out to help with Children’s Cancer Research. We can’t begin to tell the Military how much we appreciate their participation, and their service!! The kids, big and little, had such a great time checking out all the vehicles and climbing inside. The Army brought a HMMWV, MARSOC was there with a M-ATV, NSW (Navy Seals, Naval Special Warfare) showed up with a GMV and an LTATV. Watching them roll in was amazing.

Torrey Pines High School parking lot was filled with so much fun for all, there was face painting (by the Military), lots of food and drinks, slot car racing, and so many vehicles to check out. We are looking forward to next year and hopefully a day soon that we don’t need to raise awareness for childhood cancer.  With organizations like Max’s Ring of Fire and the Brees Dream Foundation bringing awareness to this cause. Thank you again to ALL of you that came out, because of your help we are one step closer to finding cures.  For more information about Touch A Truck please go to http://www.maxsringoffire.org/ and for more information on the Brees Dream Foundation please go to    http://www.drewbrees.com/foundation

New Predator Shop HMMWV

A ton of exciting things at the shop right now including our new Predator Shop HMMWV. This is a 1989 998 model, with the 6.2L n/a diesel engine mated to the stock turbo 400 3-speed transmission. It doesn’t produce a whole lot of power but she runs really well. We have planned, a “desert tan” paint job and bed liner for now. The shop is really slammed right now so no immediate plans for a Duramax or Cummins swap right now. You will probably see this truck driving all over Southern California as our parts and delivery truck. Big thanks to our good friend John for finding this great hmmwv for us.
