Apparently. It's been up for a while.

I'd think as a DD, it would be ok, but to haul anything, well, you might a well have a half-ton gasser with the gearing in that machine originally.

My boss had a H1 he blew 2 motors because he always tried to go 90 mph everywhere.

I spent 10 years driving those things in the military. Some of that in the National Guard driving highways, going to annual training, and I have never been able to get it over 60 mph. Maybe the civilian model was not as restricted. That said, I have seen some do some amazing things, but also fail amazingly. They were terribly underpowered for a one and quarter ton rated machine.

I don't know if it actually would go 90, but he would try....

I think the Civi trucks had normal axles and the military ones had portal style axles. I think...

All the H1 ran exactly the same axles as the military version. they were built on the same assembly line but the civvy h1 was driven across a parking lot to have civvy finishings
