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.

    And yeah, the H1 is probably one of the coolest thing on the road was ever made or built.

    looks really great, and the specs sound impressive too. If i was a filthy “oil magnet” that needed to drive in the Sahara, I would want this.

    Looks beautiful.

  • Still wondering which car they are based on. The military HMMWV or the civilian H1.
