Hummer H2 Pimped Out By Texas Sheriff

police hummerBy David Ponce

Well, it now looks like no one can pimp a Hummer quite like a Texas sheriff can. Not content with his sedate cruiser, this particular sheriff had his personal vehicle, a Hummer H2, sent over to German Geiger for a special outfitting.

This is what they did to it: they replaced the engine a supercharged V8, with 7.0 liters of displacement, producing a peak of 700hp and 904 Nm of torque. This can propel the 3-ton tank from 0-60 in 6.5 seconds, and it’s top speed is electronically limited to 250km/h or about 153mph. Then, they gave it one-piece forged chrome king-size 10Jx28 wheels with Kumho 325/35 R 28 tires.

In addition, the H2 suspension and brakes have been replaced with more robust units and the ride height lowered by some 105 millimeters, with much firmer damper settings. Sport sway bars reduce body roll in fast corners. The high-performance brake system with 380-millimeter perforated and vented discs and eight-piston fixed calipers on the front axle delivers enormous fade-free stopping power.

The car will be sent back to the US, where it’ll be outfitted with Police communication equipment, and should soon be ready for our enterprising Sheriff to enjoy.

    So, who pays for all that stuff? Either you guys pay your cops too much or you don’t mind coughing up taxes to fund this sort of thing. Regardless, it’s pretty tacky.

    Uhhh, that’s gotta be close to a $100,000 vehicle by the time all the mods are done. I wonder if that sheriff has been making any extra visits to the evidence locker lately? Short of doing anything illegal, how the heck can a sheriff afford something like that for his personal vehicle?

    texas sucks.

    The sherriff makes considerably more than a regular police officer. It’s probably well over $100,000 a year.

    He probably isn’t footing the bill for gas. What a obnoxious example of American greed.

    “So, who pays for all that stuff?”

    Tickets. Most likely a speed trap.

    How much do you think a typical police cruiser goes for, anyway? Those things are never stock. Nope, this got paid for from the same fund that pays for all other police transportation. It’s probably the biggest item on the budget. The sherriff’s car is always bigger and badder than the rest.

    I suppose all you folks complaining about the cost would rather he rode around in a Prius?
