It seems to me that the process to make one of these .gov surplus HMMWV's street legal and have a title is not so cut and dried.

Has anyone here successfully done it?

It also seems that THEE one source for information/gouge/intell on surplus vehicles, steelsoldiers, poo poos threads such as this.

Maybe there are some state DMV's that are more lenient about actually issuing a title (even though I think the govliquidation website says "off road use only")

What say you?

A quick search turned up:
This story has someone in Texas who did it.

If you live in AZ and CA you will not be so lucky.

This guy does it as a business ... in Texas.

Sounds like the answer may be to get it street legal in TX, register it to a TX LLC which has a legal domicile in TX to legally keep the registration in TX and then drive it with TX plates into your state.

The easiest way is to have a farm. I know of at least one farmer that farm plated one recently in Oregon, so only street legal for 1-200ish miles around your farm.

for mere mortals I think it is pretty tricky, I have some friends navigating the process and hoping my brother keeps me up to date. If it works my brother will probably be trying it.

The prices I see them going for at auctions make my eyes water.

These guys convert HMMWV's and other military vehicles to street legalness with the following disclaimer: Some areas such as Denver, CO are not able to register some models or yrs of Humvees. Please Call and verify your area before purchase
