    I'm looking to buy a 1980 GMC Jimmy. It has a 350, 350, 205. I noticed the 205's rear output shaft was leaking. How hard is it to replace? I would replace all the seals if I opened it up. What kind of expense am I looking at to do this myself. The guy is asking $1900 for the truck, and I want to know how much this is gonna cost to use as a bargaining chip. Thanks!

    The Jimmy was definitely used. Still has mud caked in the bumpers and underneath. They really didn't try to clean it. Its has an 8in Skyjacker lift with 38 TSL's on it. Interior is all there and in pretty good shape. The body isn't rusted, but dented pretty good in a couple of spots. Over all, its a decent truck though. Is it worth the $1900? I'm gonna try to talk him down to $1400-$1500 though. Whatcha think?
