    I need to get rid of this. I'm on the verge of parting it out and making a few bucks off it, but I'd rather sell it whole as a "project" or parts.

    It's a 1974 GMC Jimmy, 350/TH350/203, 12 bolt, Dana 44 flattop knuckle front, 3.07 gears, fulltime 4x4, typical rusty body. Needs a battery, and brakes are pulling to one side. Has lots of miles but it still runs. $500

    I have another complete set of front 8-lug outers, spindles, rotors, hub assemblies and locking hubs (internal style), backing plates, regular style knuckles. $150 for all and it comes with a 10-bolt front housing with 3.73 gears and axleshafts (it's a complete 3/4 ton front end). Axle u-joints need to be replaced.

    14-bolt Full Floater 8-lug rear end, 3.73 gears, $125.

    Dana 70 Dodge rear end, 8-lug 3/4 ton, 3.54 gears, complete $200.

    It starts and runs and moves. Needs a battery. It's definitely a beater.

    I bought it for my brother in 2000, who needed a 4x4 for the time his 4x4 truck was down. He had it through 2003, when he traded it back to me for a 2wd truck. Then I traded it again to a friend for a '78 K5 that kinda got parted out. Then that same friend wanted a Suburban I had, so I got the Jimmy back again in late 2003, and it got sold on payments for $700 to a guy in Moses Lake. He never made payments past the $400 balance due to me, so I got it back in February, and it cost me about $100 in fuel and hassle to go bring it back here.

    I had parts off it sold (the motor for $200 and the tranny and T-case for $225), but another friend wanted to buy it for $500 so I held off on parting it out. Then he decided he couldn't afford it, so here it still sits. Seems like every vehicle I have has a long story around it.

    Anyway, it uses some oil, the body is rusty, brakes need some work. But it's complete. I ran it out of gas accidentally a week back, and I think it sucked something into the carb cause now all of a sudden its running horribly. I'm going to throw another Q-jet on it as soon as I get a chance and make sure thats the problem. I'll take more pics too.

    If you end up parting it out, I'd definitely take the rocker boxes even if they are only good for mock ups/templates for making new ones.

    Well, if you guys need parts like those, I already have 2-3 parted out K5's in those years sitting up north. Maybe talk with Kenny and see if you can make a deal with him to torch out and bring you those sections, if he decides to make a trip up my way.

    Allan, try changing the fuel filter before you change the whole carb. I know it means buying new parts and all, but it's only a couple bucks :grin:

    Well, the carb on it has been in need of a rebuild anyway for the past 2 years. It's just now finally to the point of where it wont even stay running.

    Yeah, that would be the safest bet. The tabs are expired and I'd want to do some brake work before driving it far.
