    Re: Skeeter's H3 Alpha

    Love those mats and you will love the Bad Boy Horns. Definitely need them with the Cashmere carpet. The H3 has the Cashmere carpet but the H3T has Ebony (with the Cashmere interior)????

    I'm looking into the cost of replacing the Cashmere in the H3 with Ebony. I got my dealer parts buddy down to $380. If I can do it for $350, I would.

    Look great! I wish I could find the time to get back to my H3 projects. I have no clue how you able to swing two H3 projects a once. I'm sure it helps that the Mrs. is on board. I love seeing the changes.

    Re: Skeeter's H3 Alpha

    Money does become an issue when you are trying to mod two of them at once, but the good thing is the 06 is set up pretty well for now. The stuff I want for it are still in the testing phase or can't afford right now. I cna just buy the less expensive items I want for the Alpha. Next on the list for the Alpha is an Airdoc, Gibson cat back, ported throttle body, handheld tuner, and tires. I've been thinking about doing some paint work too

    No problems, just decided we could use the $800+ a month on something better. Probably get something a little more fuel efficient. We still have the 06

    Re: Skeeter's H3 Alpha

    Hey Skeeter and Mrs. Skeeter, at least you still have the wheeling rig. $800+ a month is STEEP and I think everyone here understands that there are other priorities that come first. Hope you got a good price on the Alpha!

    I'm sure there will be another HUMMER in the driveway some day.

    that amount was the payment, insurance, and fuel for a month. We got a little over what we owed on it. Yes there will be another one some day. Hopefully, it will be another Alpha
