    H2 and H3 hummers are 97% pavement princesses anyway. Since they are bought purely for image, a lift like this makes a lot of sense.

    Most serious off roaders aim for something other than height when modifying a rig. Lift is a byproduct.

    That's a pretty sick Hummer. But way to much lift. But still awesome for a concrete cowboy.

    I think it's cool but how does he even get into it?

    I have a 10inch lift and my old lady complains about getting into that every time. This would be impossible for girls.

    I agree. That is entirely too much.

    All you really need is enough lift to maximize suspension travel to what is necessary for your application. I only have 4.25" of lift but 4" of up travel and 11" of down travel. Body lifts fall into the other category, mostly of a mod simply used for aesthetics when used beyond a certain point. All that is really needed is a small one to correct driveshaft angles when its paired with a motor mount lift. As ExtraSlow said, a lift is fairly far down on the list of essential mods for an offroad rig.

    I don't know how I could even have fun driving a truck like that.

    Excessive body roll, can't even get in it.

    It wouldn't be fun to drive OR be suitable as a grocery getter. Not to mention it'll be hard to find a parking space and I won't be able to access underground parking if needed to.

    damn this video makes offroading look fun. Not like when I go and have to deal with changing flat tires in the mud, water locked engines, no chicks, etc

    I don't see the point in have the body so high off the ground, when the rear diff won't even clear over certain objects...

    This would be functional for zombies. In WWZ I'd rock it.
