From what you say, it is likely to be the exhaust. The exhaust is flexibly mounted, to allow it to move with the engine as it twists under torque loading and unloading. You could have a soft or broken mount. You could also have a heat shield starting to break it's welds. Finally, you might have an internal baffle that's starting to break away inside the muffler. The first two can be checked by getting underneath to inspect the system and shake it around. A vibrating baffle is best fixed by changing the muffler.

mac24 you are truely correct. I had the exhaust system changed out a few days ago and the problem is no longer there. I had a broken mount and the baffle inside the muffler had also broken lose. I truely thank you for your time and your response to the problems I was having. By the way, I went with a FlowMaster system that was designed for the Hummer H2, thanks again and take care.

OH MY GOD.
The irony. If you had been in a smaller car you might not have rolled over at all. A smaller car with better handling might have avoided any accident in the first place! Instead, you have a top heavy vehicle which is more prone to accidents, but when accidents occur, yes you are better protected. I'd rather avoid an accident than survive one.

Stability control in Hummers? That would help with rolling over...
Also, Baccus49, you can't say that for sure, it could have been that with a lighter smaller car he would have lost traction and crashed, possibly hurting himself. It depends how he drove it.
I wonder what the new situation would be for the H2. I bet it will look similar to the new Yukon with 380hp 6.2L V8 and meybe even a 6 speed.
I hope GM will take the time to re-design the H2, look at what ford did with the Explorer, I though the new engine transmission and revisements would be enough but they weren't.
Its also due to fuel economy but that not an issue for Hummer owners. in a funny way it should improve, and a Hybrid hummer would really confuse the tree huggers.

........a Hybrid hummer would really confuse the tree huggers.
If you want to see them confused just try explaining that a diesel H1 can run on biodiesel, about the 'greenest' fuel there is. There's nothing more enviromentally friendly than a vehicle running on recycled fryer oil.
Well, maybe a bicycle.
