H3 Hummer Skydiving & WordPress

Hey I’m Eric Schwarz and this is my website that I designed. 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. I literally get paid to jump out of airplanes. Although, I will probably refer to it jokingly as “Hauling Meat.” Anyway, Skydiving, H3 Hummer, and WordPress is pretty much what this website is about.

H3 Hummer Parts

My passion for going off-road began with a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I quickly lost control and built an off-road beast. I enjoyed that Grand Cherokee, but with time I realized I had the spec sheet of an H3 Hummer. Although my H3 will probably never perform off-road as well as that Jeep. But that Jeep will never drive on-road as well as my Hummer. I sold that Jeep, purchased the H3 Hummer but I needed some basic parts so I could hit the trails. I started off by making a set of rock sliders (rocker panel protection) for the H3 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 should have a simple CB Antenna bracket within the month for sale. 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’m working on.

Website Designer / Developer

I specialize as a WordPress Theme developer, I give away my themes for free on WordPress.org and also have a premium plugin to enhance those themes. I build everything from scratch and ground up using a GoDaddy Virtual Private Servers running Centos 7, Apache, MySQL, and PHP 7. I completely avoid using JavaScript and instead rely on HTML5 & CSS3 tricks. Basically, I make websites where the goal is for the client to manage their own website without me and with little to no knowledge about the website. A website that I’ve built is just as easy as using Microsoft Office is.

Skydiving

I like to jump out of “Perfectly Good Airplanes.” The ratings I have through the United States Parachute Association and United Parachute Technologies allows me to haul meat out of an airplane for cash. I have an AFFI rating too. Having an AFFI rating so I can teach students how to skydive, take them on their first skydive with their own parachute, and sign-off on the requirements for their A-license. However, my true passion has become shooting outside video for tandem students. It is so much fun to get fly in front of someone on their first skydive. Seeing their face light up when I have them grab my ankles so I can spin them around, high-fiving and fist-pounding at 120mph, and playing rock paper scissors is my favorite.

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

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

Black Plastic Restored

For longer than I’d like to admit, I’ve been trying to find a solution to the aged plastic trim on my H3 Hummer. The Trim on the vehicle has taken quite the beating from the sun, weather, and years of driving. This damage has left the plastic with this blotchy grey-ish chalk white color. I’ve tried a bunch of products that claim to restore the look, like Mothers Back-to-Black Trim and Plastic Restorer, but they barely last a few days. I can’t bring myself to use Plasti Dip or Bed Liner because it looks half-ass. The heat gun trick didn’t Continue Reading

CB Radio

The Citizen Band Radio, or CB Radio, is one of the most important parts to equip a 4×4 vehicle with. A CB Radio is a requirement for most organized Off-Road events. Despite its old design, the CB Radio is a very effective tool for keeping everyone safe on the trail. In an age of cell phones, Facebook Messenger, and a hundred other things you’d think that the CB Radio would be a thing of the past, but honestly, it’s just as relevant as ever. What makes the CB radio a valuable tool for communication on the 4×4 trails is the Continue Reading
