Description

You are renting a truly unique, AM General M998 HMMWV (Humvee) that has been carefully maintained to preserve her military heritage. Grab up to three friends and pile your gear into this rugged, diesel-powered woodland camo, all American truck that is street legal and a serious head turner! Her name is Betsy, and her original features include four high back (command style) cushioned seats with working three-point safety belts, olive drab soft top canvas roof, rear curtain and four soft doors to shield the elements. Adjustable driver’s seat and heat controls (no AC), windshield wipers and tie downs for gear. I recommend Googling how, what and why these rigs were built as they were. There are no airbags; yes, you can roll down the canvas windows. Exterior body work is canvas on painted aluminum with rivets, so the brush guard can’t be her only guard against abuse (please treat her carefully inside and out!). Rear towing is by request only, as most of your stuff ought to fit in the bed which measures 48” L x 52” W x 14” H, or in the cab between passengers. Diesel fills on the passenger side; she gets about 10 mpg. You’re sure to be in the hottest ride around Ohio this summer, but you must understand and acknowledge a few things while making your booking please! This truck is definitely not the ride for everyone. Authentic Humvees are full of torque but low on horsepower, which means you can expect slow acceleration and lots of engine noise (especially above 55 mph when the fan kicks on!) Small rattles are normal as are the sound of metal objects hitting each other on seemingly flat roads. In short, if you’re looking for quiet ambiance that affords you a lot of easy phone talk time, please rent elsewhere. Also, since she has canvas doors and roof, you should take extra precautions during rainy weather by dressing appropriately and stowing your personal effects in such a way that runoff doesn't ruin them. A recent storm reminded me that the truck's bed can accumulate water, which runs straight into the cabin, dripping down the sides. Your right pant leg may get wet (but again, caution with your luggage - wrap with trash bags to be safe!) Betsy measures a full 7 feet wide, which means certain roads are barely wide enough, and her turning radius is not the greatest. Your focus in crowded areas is expected and appreciated, so we don’t have to charge for the trouble of fixing this vintage beauty. Best adventures are on wide, straight roads. Betsy doesn’t mind when you take her doors off (it's actually recommended on a nice day), but like the rest of her: parts that go missing or damaged will incur charges as you should expect. Diesel is the only fuel she takes and your receipt should be turned in with her keys when your rental ends. Operating a military truck.... (more in guidelines) Be safe and have a great drive! We are here to make your trip as easy and enjoyable as possible. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions before, during or after your trip as we're here to help!

Guidelines

Diesel only! Please be prepared this truck gets about 10 mpg and is loud and slow: 0-60 in about 30 seconds! Starting the engine: start by inserting the ignition key fully and turning the key to the right 45* degrees from ENG. STOP to RUN. Meanwhile, shift to N - neutral. Now, you must WAIT approx. 12 seconds for the WAIT light above to dim off, and ONLY then may you turn right to START until she turns over. Switch returns to run position and to shut her off, you turn left to ENG. STOP. Then, you can turn and remove the ignition key. Always fully engage the handbrake (as there is no P for parking) it releases when you pull the safety collar up.
