I rented an ex-military M998 Humvee for a day!

I recently had the chance to experience an ex-military AM General M998 Humvee. A wartime icon made famous during the Gulf War. A tremendous machine capable of traversing the most treacherous terrain. A menacing beast that inspired a civilian version. A vehicle that became quite vulnerable as guerilla warfare became more prevalent.

Before I got to drive this 1988 Humvee I knew nothing about these vehicles. I did a bunch of research and it turns out they have a pretty interesting history—so I made a video with it! If you have a few minutes to spare, check it out below.
