What does it take to do a painstakingly detailed frame-off restoration on a Hummer H1 and reimagine it as a modern—yet capable—luxury vehicle? The guys get the scoop from the team behind Mil-Spec Automotive and find out why they had to retool relatively innocuous parts—such as the door handles—themselves. Deaver’s own Scott Born answers everything you’ve ever wondered about leaf springs and why they are still relevant today. Also, is Jeep already working on a performance variant of the Gladiator pickup?
