    Well, now I did it again. Another trade. Traded my '83 Chevy K20 for an '86 Jimmy.

    The '83 Chevy as of now has a 350 with Edelbrock intake, SM465/NP205, Dana 44, 14-bolt FF, 4.10's, 4" suspension lift, and a hammered body. (only straight piece is the hood).

    The '86 GMC Jimmy has a 4" suspension and 3" body lift, 350 that is blown (smoking and knocking) but has a gear drive in it and Edelbrock intake, TH350/NP208, Dana 44, 14-bolt FF, 4.10s, and pretty decent body. Just needs a motor.

    I keep my tires and he keeps his tires as well as he keeps the light bar and tach.

    Now I have to do another motor swap but I figure the '86 Jimmy should have a better re-sale than the dented up truck.

    Oh, and here's a couple video clips of the '83 truck and '86 Jimmy "Before". I paid $2500 for the '83 truck, but kept the Warn winch, Dana 60 and 14-bolt with 4.88's and the Goodwrench 350 and Flowmaster exhaust, and 6" all spring lift. I put a 4" lift back under it, 3/4 ton 4.10 axles, stock 350, and another 465/205 after the sleeve broke between the first 465/205.

    do yu ever just wonder what it would be like to pass up a few deals?


    i feel so much more calm now that I dont try to never pass up a deal...

    today an dana 60 drw came accross my path for 700 bucks, before I would have handed over the cash and broke my back, paid some people on a corner, what ever it would take. I lready have a dana 60 drw with 4.56 and the 86 is "not my wheeler"


    lol I picked up the phone, and passed the info on to someone else who wanted it.

    :eek1: :doah:


    I have lost it.. also passed on a clean 71 k5 for 2500 last week:crazy:

    I actually pass on alot of deals. But when one comes my way I try and act on it. Like the $750 1984 Suburban with a 454... it was a random deal, but worth getting. I end up passing on alot of little stuff I don't have time for, or usually dont have money for.

    As far as this '86 Jimmy, it's been sitting at our rental house a block away kinda stored there since my friend blew the motor. I was getting the red '83 ready to sell or do something with, and realized he needed a rig to drive so I offered the trade (figured it's already basically here anyways, may as well just make it mine since he won't be able to do anything with it for a while). Plus I have a running 350 ready to go in it since I gave up on a 1980 Chevy I was going to put together but ended up selling minus motor.
