Thats a nice Hummer.

Let me set the scene for you guys. I was waiting for my boss to come out of a bar (Iím a bouncer and we were picking something up from another bar) when I saw one of my friends walking down the street. This was in Wrigleyville in Chicago and for any of you that have been there you would know that itís like a 4 block area with like 30 bars so very busy. Any ways back to the story, my friend comes over and we are talking when this homeless guy comes up and tries giving him some papers and we are like no thanks buddy. Then heís like aww damn this a bad ass truck and walks over to my side. Heís like I aint never seen a Hummer before, this thing is bad ass. Iím like well you still havenít seen a Hummer my friend b/c this is a Jeep. Heís like Man this a nice Hummer boss. Iím like itís NOT a Hummer itís a Jeep. So Iím like ok thanks go away. Man Iím gonna tell all my friends I saw a Hummer this thing is bullet proof right? This is military shit right here yo. Iím like THIS IS A JEEP, Now please go the away.


Sorry for the boring story but I thought you guys would get a kick out of it.

Countless people have called my rig a hummer - if they seem to have an IQ above 65, I try to educate them, if not (as is the case most of the time), I say thanks and swallow my pride... Hummer... BAH!

I was at the Supermarket the other day, a guy was oogling over my jeep, and when I walked up, noticed he had a H2 parked next to me. The stock Hummer was dwarfed behind my Ruby, and he proceeded to quiz me about my ride. Crazy

Definitive answer for when someone mistakes your Jeep for a Hummer is to say ďwhatís a Hummer?Ē

I see no reason to advertise for them (Hummer); in my mind the fact that somewhere on your Jeep it says Hummer means you spend too much time thinking about the wrong stuff. Their Hummers should have Jeep stickers on them not the other way around. But hey thats just my 2 cents; advertise for Hummer if you want to

No, I mean you should have kicked him twice, just to be sure he got the message.

Damn. I'm glad this got brought up. The 4 door JK has been out for 4 yrs now and I still get sum jackleg at a QT asking me "Is dat a Humma?" Then you tell them it's a Jeep and they look at you like your playing some kind of head game with them. It says "Jeep" on the grill and "Wrangler" on the front fenders. Does that many people still not know how to read? This country is going down the toilet.

What? Are you serious? How could you possibly do that? They are completely different vehicles! You must not know very much about Jeeps at all.

The guy down the street just got a new 4 door Jeep...looks pretty good:

This must be the spy pic of the 2012 hard top only Jeep. Personally I think its ugly..

I think if it looks like any of the hummers it would look more like an H1 b/c of how boxy it is. My neighbors are always telling me how much my Jeep looks like a hummer, rather annoying. Almost makes me want to get a 2 door so I NEVER get asked that question again. Then again, The hell with that, I sure do love this 4door.

Yeah- my wife's friends keep confusing our unlimited as a hummer.. (since she gets to use it as a minivan on a daily basis) - its annoying. I made sure she corrects them promptly.

Meh, I don't worry about it. When we first got ours, the IT guy at work said it was cute like a baby Hummer.

Like Karn said in a similar thread, if they mistake it for a $30k+ vehicle that's not so bad. Either way they are attempting to pay you a compliment, just ignorant of the facts.

I don't have that problem, the two door just looks like a wrangler. Plus no lift or big tires (yet), I heard they can cause problems with the axles.

Then when there friends see mine and he says, "Thats one sick Hummer"...He'll be the biggest idiot in front of all his friends.

If its gotta be a hummer...make it an H1....other than that...take em' to the mall..that's about all they're good for!
