New to me 82

Made the deal yesterday.
Always wanted one of these.
Was going swap a 4x4
But this maybe easier

No drive train yet
Planning on a 350-350 combo
And plant it, how far can you go down out back
til the diff hits the floor?

Congrats! I have no idea how low before contact, maybe Keith or someone else will chime in. Slammed is the plan?

Re: New to me 82

Yeah pretty low. I'm told a standard notch will get it there in the rear.
My 16 year old is wanting to become a fabricator.
So we've talked about pancaking to crossmember or a aftermarket deal.
Have to make room for it at home yet

Re: New to me 82

More random questions.
Finally looked at the title.
Its a gmc jimmy wondering how many 82 2wd Jimmies where built.
Also...
Would an 82 have the 1" or 1.25" rotor?
10 or 12 bolt rear-end
Its sitting 4 hours away.
And im shopping

Re: New to me 82

Not sure on production numbers.

I think in 82 the rotors could still be either. I'm texting a forum friend and he said either is possible, the heavy duty was still an option. The rear should be 10-bolt.

Re: New to me 82

Good bad and ugly.

This is going to be a bit more of a project than we thought.

Appears to have taken a hit in the door/B pillar area and some poor repairs made.
The passenger seat frame is busted completely in half
The floor brace is wrinkled up.

But no rust in the floors. ��

Re: New to me 82

Still looks like a cool project that will clean up well.

On that light blue, patina'd 67-72 (maybe it's a 70?) sitting in the driveway. What wheels are on that? I like that pattern.

Re: New to me 82

And has the 1.25 wide rotors.
And surprise surprise the smashed B pillar problem is almost minor in comparison.
The right rail is twisted and kinked.
Major bummer

Find out Monday if we can source another frame.
I think its fixable but another frame maybe a less painful experience

Well now we'll see if the 4x4 frame is really the same.
Let the fun begin.

And got the kid a tig machine to weld it all together

Well we have a frame, albeit a 4x4 frame.
Time to cut rivets a lot of rivets.

Re: New to me 82

The 4wd frame swap and the sectioned crossmember are trying our patience.

Good times with J though

Unbolted everything and it relaxed enough to go together again
