Lks Dcvn: 70 2wd GMC Jimmy Conversion Project

Picked this up last year from another board member to add to my collection. I've always wanted a GMC Jimmy and this one was already converted to 2wd from the prior owner so that made my decision easy. It was well documented with paperwork from the dealership, protect-o-plate and some service records from the original owner.

I've been working on it here and there and figured it was time to document the progress I've been making.

The PO purchased it off Ebay (snowy picture below if from Ebay listing) and then drove it home (Colorado to New Mexico I believe) before the conversion started. Here are a few pix from when it was purchased by the PO before the work started on the conversion. It started as a Colorado truck, then moved to New Mexico, then Texas and now Ohio. I am the 3rd owner.

It has the original rebuilt (with paperwork) SBC 350 and the SM465 was swapped for a Muncie M22 when the conversion happened. Front suspension was swapped from an 86-88 5 lug suburban and the rear axle had the axles swapped to 5 lug at the same time.
