Preview – 2009 Hummer H3 – Plan B Rig
When Things Go Bad, It’s This Way Out
Not every day can be full of rainbows and sunshine, so when skies turn dark and threatening, it’s best to have a Plan B. Whether you are escaping quickly eroding civility in the city, or just trying to get to higher ground to outlast the storm, it is important to chose a vehicle wisely and outfit it smartly.
Over the years, the experts at our sister publication Four Wheeler have built many vehicles with exactly that mindset. One such rig was the 2009 Hummer H3 Alpha you see here. Adding to a factory foundation that included a 4:1 transfer case, front and rear electric lockers, and a 300-horsepower, 5.3-liter, V8 engine, Four Wheeler built this H3 in conjunction with Attitude Performance in Arlington Heights, Illinois, to survive the toughest trails, making it a solid choice to escape in.
To make sure this daily-driven H3 could be called upon as a dependable escape capsule, Four Wheeler outfitted it with the best products available to increase its capability and durability. While the freeways and highways are clogged with vehicles trying to flee town, this H3 will be comfortably navigating long-forgotten back roads with minimal effort.
Whether taking the family on a recreational trail ride, or packing them up for a trip to relative safety, this H3 embodies what we look for in a bugout truck. In doing so, we have our Plan B, and we hope it will give you ideas for yours. If everything works out, we’ll see you at the rendezvous point.
