Boat is on National Liquidators site

A hummer sits on a tahoe frame with 3/4 ton axels. At the end of the day it's still an ugly box on coil spring suspention. I'd be afraid to tow anything over 6000 lbs with it. (Not that I'd be caught in one of those wanabe hoopdies anyway. Looks like a port-o -jonn on its side with big tires. I just don't get the appeal. )

They are nothing like a tahoe, suburban or avalanche. They are a frankestein frame. The very front is the same as a 3/4 ton chevy pu and the very rear is the same as a 1/2 ton pu. The middle is a box frame like no other vehicle. If your into trucks than put one on a frame machine and take a look at it. They are something to look at.
