H3 Hummer Skydiving & WordPress

I like to build websites, specializing in handwritten WordPress Themes. I also sell custom off-road parts for the H3 Hummer. I’m also a Professional Skydiver. Literally jumping out of airplanes for money. Although, I will mostly just “Hauling Meat” out the door. Anyway, Skydiving, tthe H3 Hummer, and WordPress is pretty much what this website is about.

H3 Hummer Parts

It all began with a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I modified to fit 31-inch tires. After that, it was quickly all downhill after that and built an off-road beast. I enjoyed that Grand Cherokee, but with time I had the spec sheet of an H3 Hummer. My H3 will never perform off-road as well as that Jeep. But that Jeep will never ride as nice as the Hummer. I sold the Jeep, purchased the H3 Hummer, and needed some basic parts for the trails. I started off with a set of rock sliders (rocker panel protection) and then just kept designing the next part I wanted.

Currently, I have a few projects I’m working on. I have a bolt-on light bar that I’m nearly finished designing and testing. I have a simple CB Antenna bracket ready for sale and should be spotting it up soon. I got some over-kill heavy-duty tie-rods that I need to test. Then there is the CB / Hi-Lift / Shovel / Bottle Opener custom adjustable height tire carrier I’m working on. Also, I have this lockable drawer sliding toolbox I’ve been thinking about.

Website Designer / Developer

Sometimes I specialize as a WordPress Theme developer. There are free themes on WordPress.org that I’ve written and also a premium plugin to add extra features. Everything is written from scratch and ran on GoDaddy Virtual Private Servers running Centos 7, Apache, MySQL, and PHP 7. I completely avoid using JavaScript. Using HTML5 & CSS3 tricks to their full potential. So as the client can manage their own website without any help. Comparatively, managing the website is as easy as Microsoft Office.

Skydiving

I like to jump out of “Perfectly Good Airplanes.” Mainly, I’m taking people of their first skydive but I also get to fun jump too. I have an AFFI rating so I can teach students how to skydive and sign-off on the A-license requirements. Shooting professional outside video for tandem students is a lot of fun too. Flying in front of a tandem student, watching their face light excitement, having them grab my ankles and spinning them around, high-fiving, playing rock paper scissors is my favorite, and all while falling at 120mph is fun.

However, there is more to Skydiving than making money and the videos below are fun jumping from my point only.

P0430 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold

The other day the engine light came on in the 2008 H3 Hummer Alpha with the 5.3L V8. I took out my handy scan tool and checked the error code with the Android App Torque Pro to see what’s up. Fault code: P0430 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2) After some Google-ing, I found a lot of people on the Hummer Forums immediately changing out the catalytic converter. I’ve never had a bad catalytic converter on any of the vehicles owned. However, I have replaced a bunch of 02 sensors over the years. This is why I choose to Continue Reading

Modular Tire Carrier

Yesterday, I got the next revision in the development of the Modular Tire Carrier that I have been working on for the H3 Hummer. An H3 Hummer Modular Tire Carrier is for creating an easy solution for bolt-on common off-road accessories. The most important accessory is the Hi-Lift, an off-road jack that is commonly found on farms that have many purposes and great utility off-road recovery. I’ve been stuck in the mud a time or two and the only solution to getting out is a shovel, specifically a mini round point shovel with a good handle. While we’re at it Continue Reading

No more XM Hacking

As the title implies, I can no longer produce the H3 Quick n’ Simple Auxiliary Audio Input and the short run of Bluetooth capable version. The featured image is an image of the part that I can no longer purchase because it is out of production. But do not worry, I was aware of running out of these parts long ago and have been preparing for just this case. In fact, I think these new parts in combination will result in an even better experience than what Quick n’ Simple Auxiliary Input could ever povide. The two parts that I Continue Reading

Fixing the Auxiliary Audio Input

Where to begin… The “H3 Hummer Quick N’ Simple Auxiliary Audio Input” that I’ve been shipping for the last few months has been having quite the influx of issues. Quite a bit more than what I consider acceptable. The issues of been wires breaking, static in the radio, no audio and etc. Which is why I’ve changed the design of this Audio Input for the better. Above is a photo of the newly designed printed circuit board for the auxiliary audio input. This PCB is designed to fix every issue that all of the customers have been running into. It Continue Reading

H3 Hummer & SmittyBilt Winch

I had to share this photo of a customer of mine installing their brand new Schwarttzy.com Hidden Winch Mount for the H3 Hummer and SmittyBilt H20 10,000lb winch. This guy is living it up with that Alpha 5.3L V8 and brand new winch. Note that I recommend getting a Hawse Fairlead like this one from X-Bull so that it fits neatly in the bummer. Once you have a winch, your never stuck… it’s just a matter of time. If you have any questions or comments be sure to contact me using the form here.

Alpha H3 Hummer

Last Wednesday I purchased a 2008 H3 Hummer Alpha. I didn’t want to purchase another H3, but being able to tow my travel trailer is what ultimately forced me to. As a skydiver by trade, I follow the warm weather to maximize my earnings. Only I had a problem. I wasn’t giving up my Luxury Package. I wasn’t giving up my Adventure Package. And I had to have the V8. Which meant I was looking for one of the most desirable true off-road SUVs with a V8 engine from the factory. Let me back up a bit here. The factory Continue Reading

July 4th Overload

End of June and into the first few weeks of July are always the busiest weeks of my life right now. I just skydived into Naval Station Great Lakes on Tuesday, I jumped into the Bartlett Illinois Fourth of July Festival yesterday, Chicagoland Skydiving Center Independence Boogie is happening at my place of work all week, the Spartan Chin GoPro mounts are selling fast (have mentioned that I have hero 3, 4, 5, and 6… haven’t had time to put them on website yet), and Hummer parts are selling fast lately. However, that’s not the point of this post. Instead, Continue Reading

Join Our Flock

Got a new video to share of Skydiving on Memorial weekend flocking with experienced skydiving canopy pilots at Chicagoland Skydiving Center. The minimum wing loads to be able to keep up was 2.4 lbs / square foot. With that high of a wing loading, all of these canopies are coming out of the sky fast. I had the job of driving the formation. Driving the formation means that I set the speed which can be changed by varying inputs on the front risers, rear risers, brakes, or some combination of those inputs so that we all can flock together. Just Continue Reading

New Extend Leaf Spring Shackles!

Schwarttzy.com has been getting some backlash from the Extended Leaf Spring Shackles, rightful so… they’re exact copies of Samco. Copying wasn’t my intention, I asked for a similar design… ended up with $1,000 of exact copies. Long story short, this is the redesign I’ve been working on to correct this wrong. This is the first sample of the redesigned Shackle. The new version is going to have a thickness of 5/16 inch, has been reshaped and shaved of excess material, first to get a laser etched logo, and I hope to reduce the cost with a weld-less design. I only Continue Reading

Blackstone Laboratories – Oil Reports

Next time that vehicle is up for an oil change, I recommend getting the used oil analyzed at Blackstone Laboratories. “Oil analysis is a quick, nondestructive way to gauge the health of an engine by looking at what’s in the oil.” Source Located in Fort Wayne Indiana, Blackstone Laboratories provide an easy to understand report of the vehicles engine condition. The test kit from Blackstone is completely free, so there is no reason not to have a test kit laying around. Head over to this page and fill out the form to get a test kit. The process was completely Continue Reading
