    Tired of fighting with it and dumping the time I don't have into it.

    71 GMC Jimmy
    Orange, with hammered metal rustoleum under the lower chrome

    Engine:
    350 bored 30 over with flat top pistons
    Mild Erson cam
    chrome valve covers, you know this adds power
    Tuned Port Injection with what is supposed to be the injectors for a 350
    7730 Ecm with the advanced prominator if you don't know what this is look it up, you can't get it anymore
    rotary dip switch option, (holds 10 bin files, adjustable on the fly)
    Affordable fuel injection wiring harness

    th350 rebuilt a couple years ago
    NP205 rebuilt at same time, twinsticked recently, needs shifters welded to brackets

    Chasis:
    Fast-Trac softtop with tinted windows
    floor pans have been replaced, not the most professional job but this was supposed to be a wheeler
    Body is pretty solid overall, few minor cancer spots but nothing major.
    Custom prerunner / twin tube front bumper
    Pro comp 8" offroad lights
    New DayStar body bushings
    2" body lift
    2 3gal? air tanks mounted under the body for OBA
    West Texas Offroad rebuilt the steering box. Ported and plugged for Hydro assist
    Rag Joint repaced with U-joint from a van
    B&M transmission cooler (not hooked up but mounted)
    4 core radiator (new a couple years ago, less than 100 miles on it)
    Family cage (could use some more bracing, and needs cut down an inch or so to fit under the soft top.)

    Running Gear:
    Dana 44 front, (HD model with the big manual hubs) completely gone through, all bearings and seals replaced
    New calipers, pads, and rotors
    Corporate 14 in rear all bearings and seals replaced, all new brake hardware, drums turned, (no ebrake cables) Lincoln locked, the strong way

    Superlift braided stainless extended brake lines
    West Texas Offroad custom solid chromoly draglink and tierod
    1 Ton TRE's
    4" tuff country springs in front
    87 stock k5 springs with teflon inserts in rear with Energy Suspension Bushings
    Rear homebrew shakle flip, re-enforced
    5 36x12.5x16.5 I think that's right, the h1 tires spare included

    Misc:
    all new stuff for the TPI setup, fuel pump, filter, 3/8" fuel line, O2 sensor, hoses, blah blah blah
    4 5x7 speakers from a ford ranger (2 mounted in doors) 2 not mounted
    factory headunit from 95 sonoma mounted in custom center console
    custom center console, (nothing to brag about but keeps things out of view
    wired for stereo and cb
    2 cb's included, don't know much about them
    sony 10 disk cd changer
    York 210r for the OBA (tanks already mounted) nothing else in place
    Ford big alternator (new) don't remember but I got the model off a pirate thread
    ford focus bucket seats, comfy
    2 flowmaster 40 series (truck currently has some offbrand mufflers on it now
    2 huge *** tow hooks, off a dozer or something
    rock sliders, not mounted
    couple car stereo amps, one off brand, one an older alpine

    I've invested the last 2 years into this build, and I love this truck. But I just don't have the time to get it going. It's about a good weekend from running. Something with the Tuned Port isn't quite right just yet and I don't know enough about it to make it work. It will fire and run now just not quite all the way there. few small things still need tended to to get it streetworthy
    I'm leaving the country for the summer and just don't have the patience to deal with this, a boat, school, and this trip all at once.

    $4500 Firm

    TTT I think all it needs to fire and run is another bin file loaded but my laptop crashed this week so I can't work on it till I get that back.
