Talking Towing with an H-2 Hummer

Arial6Navy

I am thinking about buying an H-2 Hummer and want to tow my 33' Eliminator Daytona. I think the towing weight is about 9,500 pounds. A few people have told that the hummer will handle this with issue. Please give me your opinions on these ASAP. I would like to purchase now.

Get ahold of Jeff Cheng (Board god #1). He tows his Gladiator w/one and has said it did well for the 5 hour drive to havasu.

I Don't Know What A 33 Eliminator Weights But Just Keep In Mind That A H- Is A 1/2 Ton Truck The Same Chassis Of A Tahoe
I Would Reconsider

actually the capacity is 6750, I just test drove on and that was the first thing I looked for in the manual, that is why I shyed away from it, cuz if I am gonna get 10 mpg, it atleast should tow something.

H2 hummers look tougher than they really are,i worked on the transmission on one,it's the same 4l60e that a 1/2 ton z-71 and tahoe use(also the same one a 4.3 s-10 uses w/exception of a 1-2 shift servo),not indestructible like the 4l80e in the bigger trucks use,Smitty

Here you go. Don't waste your time, this will be safe and weighs 8800lbs dry. Now that is safety. I don't know why people spend 50k on a toy when you can spend 50k on a truck. This is an 03 PSD.
