Mil-Spec’s Latest Hummer H1 Build Looks Ready To Storm The Desert

Hard as it may seem to believe, there are those for whom even a Hummer H1 isn’t tough enough. Fortunately Mil-Spec is there to help, and it’s just revealed its latest build.

The Michigan-based modifier has made a name for itself beefing up Humvees with all manner of upgrades. Half of those trucks it’ll make will be custom-ordered by individual clients, but this one was commissioned by the factory itself – and is now up for sale.

The fourth Launch Edition made to date, this Hummer is based on a four-door hardtop with the short pickup bed in the back – as opposed to the two-door pickup, four-door soft-top, four-door slantback, and five-door wagon versions Mil-Spec also offers. But as you can probably tell, it’s been comprehensively enhanced.

It rides on 40-inch off-road tires (not normally offered), winch kit, tow package, heavy-duty brush guard, beefy rear step bumper, aluminum intake snorkel, front and overhead light bars, dropdown tire carrier, wide-body kit, and the black powder-coated Baja Package. The interior is all done up in duck canvas and black leather, and the bodywork’s been finished in matte Desert Tan.

Like any other of Mil-Spec’s Launch Edition Hummers, it packs a 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V8 with 500 horsepower and a bonkers 1,000 lb-ft of torque, channeled (naturally) to all four wheels through an Allison 1000 six-speed automatic transmission.

Enticed? Mil-Spec will sell this one to you for $249,000, minus an available factory-direct rebate. Suffice it to say that this is not an affordable alternative to a Jeep Wrangler, no matter how you might option one.
