Cool Tow vehicle

Ok, I sold my 2014 Ram 2500 Diesel, mainly because my work provides me with the exact same truck, just 2017. I can tow with my work truck (perk of the job), but only within 30 miles from home. So now I want something cool to tow with and I have been looking for a while. I'm thinking of a Hummer H1 and I know about the issues with them.

Any other suggestions?
My criteria are: 1) 4 door, 2) able to tow at least 7k, 3) 4wd, 4) Awesome
Give me some ideas, pics of the hummer im working on a deal.

Well, if you get the H1, you'll have to get a helicopter too. If not, then how will you.....

No, don't do it. With that jumper box sitting on the side, that tells me horrible battery in truck. Just not worth buying with a bad battery!

It actually looks cool! Sister has a Yellow H2, yea, a little bright but still very cool to drive!

I think the yellow grows on you and looks better in the H1 than the H2.

Diesel I assume....

Fly Yellow is the hummer color. The dealer has had the truck for a long time, Its been on his lot for at least 3 months. The sales guy said that it was last moved on the lot a month ago... It is a diesel 6.5 td, Parts for these things dont come easy, but luckily I live 15 min away from one of the last AM General dealers (Kascar).

They actually tow terrible..

Just saying... I have a customer with one and I hate it with a passion. Yeah it's cool but honestly for a daily/ tow rig it's useless. His over heats constantly towing in the summer.

They were not designed to tow, or do anything civilian for that matter

2006 for one year, but those are like $125,000 plus. I could always swap it, but I think i would rather have it original.
