    colorado chassis.
    i would say no larger than a 7'6. Its only got a gvwr of 6100 and a curb weight of 5069. It is a very light duty vehicle.

    All the plows that fit a Colorado will fit the Hummer H3 because they are the same.

    because its built off the same fram has a chevy colorado, thats how.. that means that you can only run light duty plows on it.

    You do know all Hummer H2 and H3s are just Chevy pickups frames and suspensions, right?

    From wikipedia:

    "GMT 355
    Main article: GMT355
    The GMT 355 is the redesigned S/T compact pickup truck design and the successor to the GMT 325 series. GMT 355s are built in Shreveport, Louisiana and Rayong, Thailand. GMT 355 uses an A-arm independent suspension in front and live axle with leaf springs in the rear. The Atlas straight-4 and straight-5 engines are widely used, with a V8 rumored in the future. A 4-speed automatic and 5-speed manual transmission are also specified.

    The GMT 355 platform was actually a joint-venture with Isuzu, though most of the design was done by Isuzu. Part of the agreement was that GM had to sell it first in the U.S., to be sold legally as an Isuzu. Despite its close numbering to the GMT 360 (also part of the S/T family) series, the two programs share nothing.

    The GMT 345 is the derivative of this platform as used on the Hummer H3.

    GMT 345 Applications:

    Hummer H3
    GMT 355 Applications:

    Chevrolet Colorado
    GMC Canyon
    Holden Rodeo
    Isuzu D-Max (Isuzu i-Series) "


    Although not noted above, the H3T is on the GMT-745, a modified GMT-355 platform, making it literally the same thing as the H3/Colorado/Canyon.

    The "Alpha" version is availiable with the 5.3 V-8, but the rest of the truck is still too light duty for any serious work. I'm assuming the V-8 versions are running the same driveline as the Trailblazer SS. Too bad the 6.0 wasn't an option.

    Confused on the driveline part I am...?

    I meant to say that I hope they put a stronger driveline in the trucks that come with the V-8. And as for the 6.0 comment...The TBSS's come with it, so I figured the Hummer guys would want the same "Bragging rights"

    Nice rig.The guys are right on about the guts of your gear.For most people it was the looks not the actual heavyness of the H-trucks that they went for.That said, there are lots of s-10s plowing snow out there.Get the plow that matches the truck,use it right and you'll have alot of fun clearing the white out of your path.good luck
