    I was just thinking about this (don't really know why [​IMG]), but I don't think I have ever seen a 2WD 1st gen. Jimmy. I'm assuming they made them, but I guess I'm not positive. Seen plenty of 4WD but no 2WD. Hmmm... Anybody have any input?

    If someone wanted to switch front ends (Chev to GMC), i.e. me [​IMG], it wouldn't be a major hassle, would it? I'm guessing the rad. support may be different with the different grille, not sure what else. Has anybody done this (or the other way around)?

    Some things to know. A 67-72 GMC fenders are the same (except no marker light holes for 67) and the hood is the same width, therefore the rad support is the same basically). The 67&68 Chevy fenders and hoods are the same size as all GMCs. 69-72 hoods are not as wide and the fenders are "bigger" therefore the rad support is different. So, your 69 will need fenders, rad support, and hood. Also, any trim you would like to have. Try posting new subjects as a seperate topic. You'll get faster responses.
