    I have a 1987 GMC Jimmy with a 6.2L diesel. Unfortunately the body is rusted out. Can I swap mine for an older Blazer/Jimmy or will only one that is the same style work?
    thanks in advance

    What year are you thinking about using? I've done the swap from an '78 to an '87........

    Do all the body holes line up or do you have to relocate them?
