Fixing the Humvee in DayZ

When you have found a wreck, in order to turn it into a functional vehicle, you need the following items:

  • 1 Glow Plug (found in industrial locations and other car wrecks)
  • 1 Car Battery (found in industrial locations)
  • 4 Humvee Tires (found in military and industrial locations)
  • Gasoline (found in industrial locations; gas can be refilled at gas stations)

You can pluck other Humvee wrecks you found for hoods, doors, and tires as well. Just remember hoods and doors are not required for the Humvee to start but can provide additional protection. Also, you can stock one spare tire in the back.

To fix the engine, use the Blowtorch on it. It works well with repairing the other parts of Humvee as well such as doors, hood, trunk, bumpers, and fenders. Flat tires can be repaired with the tire repair kit.
