We started this website to document issues with repair, maintenance, and restoration of the various HMMWV (or HUMVEE®) vehicles. All information provided on this website is our own findings and opinions, please conduct your own research to verify and confirm applicability of our information to your situation.
Available information on HMMWV vehicles is both scant and severely out-of-date. This website attempts to identify currently available parts, upgrades, or substitutions based on NSN identification or manufacturer numbers provided in existing documents.
Reliance on information, material, advice, or other linked or recommended resources, received from this website or its owners, shall be at your sole risk, and we assume no responsibility for any errors, omissions, or damages arising. Users of this website are encouraged to confirm information received with other sources, and to seek local qualified advice if embarking on any actions related to repair, maintenance, restoration or any other related or similar activity where liabilities may be present.
We are not professional mechanics, nor have we had any formal training on repair or maintenance of HMMWVs. Any professional mechanics, manufacturers, supply houses, or any other party we quote in this website are expressly disclaimed from any liability resulting from reliance on comments and statements we have published. They may or may not be aware we quoted them, we may or may not have received permission from them to quote them, and we may have misunderstood or failed to publish a precise quote or statement.

Vehicles, both on-road and off-road, have an amount of risk involved, and the manufacturer of these vehicles makes it clear that they prohibit use of genuine Hummer® and HUMVEE® parts on privately owned vehicles or government agencies not specifically authorized by them.
The manufacturer further notes that “The federal government requires HUMVEEs® to be built to military specifications that do not meet all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standards, including occupant protection requirements. In a collision, they may pose a greater risk of severe injury or death than a vehicle intended for the general public.” See this post
