The Hummer Knowledge Base
This note is to those of you who have a Stinger D-Ring brushguard (the monster). I'm thinking of getting one and would like the opinions of those who have had it on their trucks:
I appreciate your candor. Thanks!
"Does it make getting under the hood inconvenient?"
No, not really.
"Is it difficult to unlatch and lift?"
You just have to make sure you put your hand between the hood and the b-guard when you take out the second pin. I have heard that if you don't, you guard will crash down on your hood. For some reason mine doesn't do that. Perhaps it was the way it was installed.
"Do you find your view of the road obstructed?"
Not at all
"Did you feel any power loss after adding it due to the weight?"
It's not that heavy
"Do you feel it makes the vehicle safer in the event of a front collision?"
"Would you buy one for your next Hummer?"
I believe I will.
"Any problems with it that a new owner should know before buying?"
If you're not in to doing those types of things, get the dealer to install it. At least the burden of responsibility for damage will be on them.
Does it make getting under the hood inconvenient? Is it difficult to unlatch and lift?
Only if the "wing-nut" gets stuck.
My bad. I thought you were discussing an older model. (when they still had the "wing-nuts")
With the pins--> Easy unlatching. You might hear the pins rattling, but I doubt it. I rarely do.
Do you find your view of the road obstructed?
Did you feel any power loss after adding it due to the weight?
C'mon. A few hundred pounds? It's a HUMMER.
Do you feel it makes the vehicle safer in the event of a front collision?
Would you buy one for your next Hummer?
This is my third one. (first on the 2nd HUMMER)
Any problems with it that a new owner should know before buying?
It takes a skilled hand to get it all aligned correctly. That's why I have the experts, Mike and Terry, at Boomershine take care of it.
