Re: 1984 Jimmy 2wd conversion

I have been super busy at work but I have some updates on the Jimmy. I got the chassis rolling and decided it was time to swap the body. We put the Jimmy on the lift and took a few more pics of the 4x4 set up. A short time later we had lift off.

We had to put the body on and roll it outside to see what she looks like. She looks pretty good but not low enough for me. I picked up some drop shackles for the rear and cut the moog 6454 front springs 1.5 coils.

Re: 1984 Jimmy 2wd conversion

I picked up a Tejas SteelWorks transmission crossmember at C10's in the Park last year. I plan on going with a 3 inch x-pipe so I want the pipes to be tucked in the frame. I picked up a 2wd 700r4 and sent it off to get rebuilt.

Re: 1984 Jimmy 2wd conversion

I decided to go with the 87 fi tank setup. I plan on going with a ls engine later so I want the fuel system to be ready. I picked up the specta gm15c fuel tank. It's a 25 gallon fi tank. The fuel pump hanger is the spectra fg12k with the metric fittings. The straps are the spectra st12. I went with the Carter 74000 fuel pump for a tbi motor. I plan on regulating the pump down to use with my Holley carb. The Earls fittings allow me to convert the metric threads on the hanger to AN 6 lines.

Re: 1984 Jimmy 2wd conversion

The 700r4 transmission has been rebuilt and I went with a corvette stall converter. Time to work on the motor and get it ready to put in the chassis. I want to do something different with the small block so I picked out some Cerakote to update the engine parts.

Re: 1984 Jimmy 2wd conversion

What's the plans on the engine? By update, do you mean some dressing up with paint?
