I should be able to make it there before lunch time tomorrow.
They seem to be taking media on a road and trail trip from the pictures I have seen leak out. I would guess they meet up at the stadium in the AM, have a briefing, and set out on their trip, not sure if they would be at the stadium mid day, I think you would have better chance to catch them AM or PM when they come back...

Went over this morning before anyone was there, not even any security. There are 17 Hummers there with various external options:
  • Hard tonneau
  • Soft tonneau
  • Roof bars
  • Light pods
  • Single spare tire
  • Dual spare tire
  • Black and Tech Bronze wheels
  • Tent
Did not see a roof mounted light bar. I am heading back over for a Coyote's hockey game tonight, so will see what is going on later.

Great detective work.... Wow, 17 of them? did you look at the VIN's? are they the pre production captured fleet models or full production models? Did you get to see the Hydrogen charging station?

I did not check the VINs, but many of them appeared to be pre-production, with a few looking like real produciton units.

Here is the hydrogen charging station, they are using it for the Hummers. They seem to be a mixture of engineering builds and pre-production, but I did not check any VINs. A few of them had a lot of desert pin striping and dirty tires, but others were nice and clean. I took my wife back to see them and one of the guys let us sit in one and try out the frunk and tailgate. It will look good in my driveway next to the Mach E.

Some more interesting photos, showing some of the options. The spare tire carrier comes with a lockable toolbox, I assume for the jack and lug wrench. You can see the difference in the hard and soft covers as well. I did notice the box for the hard cover does take up quit a bit of space. The soft cover is held in place with Velcro and does not look very durable to me. I am really thinking about forgoing the covers and going with the spare tire instead.

I think all week, but not sure. The guy I talked to told me the media review today was from 3-5pm. They have been here since the weekend. The main event is on the Great Lawn, west side of the stadium, but you need to have media credentials for that. I showed up in the morning when they were just setting up and most of the trucks were in the parking lot near the Loop 101 (far west side of the lot).

Looks like they actually used the spare since there seems to be dirt/tread pattern on the tire mount. I'm thinking of getting a hitch mounted tire rack (Rig'd, Dirtco or Wilco) to avoid taking up the space in the bed:

Yeah, I thought about that too, but then realized it will most likely block the camera on the tailgate. Not normally a huge thing but with as big as the Hummer is I think I would want that view. My 2020 GMC dually had the same tailgate, and as much as I used that camera for backing up, etc, I would hate to loose ability.

They have camera relocation kits for the GMC trucks; to be confirmed whether they work on a GMC Hummer. Also TBD what can be done about the backup sensors.
