Check out this Shadow Green Metallic 4″ lifted 2006 Hummer H3 AWD we built as a quick winter project. We bought this Hummer H3 from a customer of mine when the oil pump went out and the engine failed, with the intention of tearing the entire vehicle apart and creating the best looking, perfect driving custom Hummer H3 out there. January of 2017, when the vehicle had 177k miles on it, we started this custom build, with no expense spared. We took the entire driveline out (engine, transmission, front and rear axles, transfer case, etc) and sent the block out to be re-manufactured. We installed all new components from the pistons up, rebuilt the transmission, transfer case, and front and rear ends. A custom cold air intake was installed to help the vehicle breath. We used the updating timing kit that fixes the issues on these 3.5Ls. The body was stripped down and repainted the factory original Shadow Green Metallic, and the frame was strengthened to accept the additional weight and stress of the 35″ tires on 20″ wheels, as well as a 3″ Suspension Lift, and 1″ body lift.
The grill was stripped and custom painted to color match the vehicle, the bumpers and trim were painted black. Custom headlights, side markers, turn signals, tail lights and fog lights were created and added, with high powered LEDs in all figures and assemblies. The tail lights and side markers were tinted, as were the side and rear windows at 15%, and the windshield at 50% tint. Custom emblem overlays were created in black and machined to match the wheels, which are new KMC Rockstar’s in Black and Machined, with BF Goodrich 35×12.5×20 All Terrain T/A tires. A color matched spare tire cover encompasses the rear.
We pulled all the electronics, body control, engine computer, ignition key and immobilizer, security system, and wiring, and replaced them with all new updated components. We removed the factory sun roof, dash, and drains, and custom created new drain tubes that cannot get clogged (BIG problem with Hummer H3s.) We replaced ALL the factory hoses and lines, added a custom 3″ Suspension Lift, 1″ body lift, control arms, tie rods, sway bar end links, bushings, Bilstein 5100 struts all the way around, and nearly all suspension components including custom bump stops to accommodate for the lift.
The interior contains the gorgeous matching Shadow Green door panels and seats. We custom stitched a leather center console lid with green stitching, painted the gaudy chrome trim on the shifter and radio faceplate Graphite Shadow, and retained all the OEM onstar features and controls. A Joying Android Radio provides GPS Waze, Spotify, and a clear signal to the Rockford Fosgate amps, a 600.4 for the Rockford Component 1675 2 ways and tweeters in the front doors and a pillars and Rockford 1675S 3 ways in the back doors. A Rockford Fosgate 600.1 Powers the Kicker Comp-X 300w RMS shallow 8″ woofer, which was Polyfilled and located in the stock monsoon subwoofer box. A reverse camera was added, as was a 2 way Viper 2 mile remote start system, and 2 new ignition keys to match all the new electronics. All lights were upgraded to LEDs, including inside lights.
It’s rare to see an H3 done up, but its even more rare to see one done well.
