Anything but the H1 is not for off road use - the rear axle in the consumer version is in no way the same as the original independant suspension of the original Hummer so don't even think that they are related other than some body styling. If you ever rode in a real Hummer like I have you would know the difference and know that the knock offs are a joke.

Even then... in light use, I've seen HMMMWV's flipped, bottomed out in mud, driven over a stick that popped a hole in the fuel tank, and whenever driven in the woods, with smashed up front corners. The old 1/4 ton Jeeps were better.

Yeah, but if you got more than two wheels of a jeep off of the ground, you're dead. HMMMWV's don't flip as easily.

This may be the case with the classic Wrangler, but the Grand Cherokee equipped with the Eaton "Quadra-Trac II" 4WD system uses a viscous coupling to send the torque to the wheel with traction. Too bad it's on the 'Grand. I've seen it in action and it works as advertised.

BTW, Red might be able to help here -- I looked at the newly re-designed Wranglers at the Auto Show this year, and they look to be as durable and useful as always, but what's with the 3.7L V-6??? The 4.0L, I-6 was the gold standard forever. They even added a 6-speed to the manual version. What's the word on the street? I didn't get a chance to ask the Jeep Club at the Rally this year (just that the "Libby" I was driving was slightly better than a Compass ) At least it was a rental
