Moving down the side of the Hummer from nose to tail, DefenderWorx billet door handle pulls break up all the paintwork and make a strong statement with machined dimple holes matching the dimple holes in both the hood handles and latches. Behind the billet door handle pulls are custom DefenderWorx CNC billet door handle bezels which provide an excellent backdrop for the stylish handles. Other custom DefenderWorx exterior CNC billet enhancements present on AIM'n High include vents, a rear-door handle pull with machined dimples, rear louvers on the rear-body pillars, a gas cap and fuel-trim ring, roof rack knobs, marker lamp bezels, running light bezels, rear D-rings, front D-rings, taillight guards, and a mini grille insert.
Now that the exterior transformation was complete, it was time to take matters into the interior and update the stock cockpit with a host of custom sights and sounds. The factory seats were pulled from their mounts and delivered to Classic Soft Trim in Commerce, California, for some fabric styling. To give the interior a bright and stylish appearance, the seats were covered in black-leather with maize-yellow leather inserts sewn into the seatbacks and bases. After the seats were given the Classic Soft trim touch, the H2 was driven over to Audio Innovations in Glendora, California, where a custom headliner was made to spice up the inside roof line and the extensive audio system was put in place. Audio Innovations owner Joe Provenzano and his talented crew constructed a black-leather headliner complete with a yellow-leather stripe insert down the center, which is further complemented by yellow-leather covered sunvisors. Getting down to the audio and video enhancements, the folks at Audio Innovations pulled out all the stops and began by installing an Icon TV DV-7 7-inch motorized in-dash monitor head unit complete with a DA-230 tuner pack. Providing entertainment for rear-seat passengers are two Icon TV MT-8001 headrest monitors sunken into the front-seat headrests. Filling the front and rear doors are two pairs of Bazooka RX-5S mid and tweeter component speaker sets to enhance the driving experience, while six Bazooka RX-T2 10-inch triangle subwoofers take care of the bass. The subs were mounted in a custom-built box and coated with textured spray material from Wurth West at Audio Innovations. Providing power for this massive audio artillery are three Bazooka EL-1500 amplifiers and a pair of Bazooka EL-2100 amps. The amps were mounted to a custom-built amplifier rack located just below the bold-looking subwoofer enclosure. Supplying power between the components is Stinger wiring, as insulation from Dynamat keeps the cabin airtight while locking in the sound.
Once the inner realm of the Hummer was completed, it was delivered back to AIM Industries, where Joe Morrow stood in amazement of his once-stock ride. Sitting tall on an 18-inch AIM Industries lift and rolling on Weld Dagger 8 wheels mounted on nearly 50-inch-tall Interco IROK tires while sporting bright and bold detail inside, outside, and underneath, this H2 was sure to be a successful rolling business card for the crew at AIM. Although it has not seen any shows as of yet, Joe reports it is a kick to drive on the street and pulls looks like nothing he has ever driven before. This Hummer H2 will definitely not have any trouble making that important first impression.
