    I know this is kind of pointless to post, but I am excited becuase I saw an old '73 -'75 (Don't know exact year) Jimmy for sale yesterday. I was driving to school and it caught the corner of my eye. Its orange with a white cap, and its $850cdn o.b.o. I am going to take a look at it on the weekend.

    Nah, sorry, but I am not a fan of the '88 clip. the '89 -'91 is ok, but I would keep the round headlights for sure. I love the look they give the whole truck.

    Keep the round headlights those look alot better. Check for rust, mine has rust all over the place but, I still wouldn't trade it for anything. You'll love the full convert of that Jimmy.

    Sorry, but what do you mean by full convert of the Jimmy. I don't quite follow ya there.

    Also, how I am assuming its a 73-75 is becuase of the little 350 badge in the driver's side bottom corner of the grill. I am assuming that its the 73-75's that only had this?

    If it is a full removable top, then it is 75 or older. Also, if it has the square body style then it is 73-75. If it's only a half top with round headlights and square body style then it's 76-79.

    AHHHHHHHH, I still can't get ahold of the guy selling this truck. Thanks for the info about what year, its a 73-75 (removeable top).

    I just have a few questions:
    1. What transfer case and diff's came on these years?

    2. I've never even riden in a Jimmy with a convertable top, would I need to put a rollcage in to offroad? Is there alot of flex in the truck since there is no roof when the top is off?

    3. Should I even bother getting this thing. I have the money, but I wouldn't start working on it for a while. I am able to store it for as long as I want at my uncle's farm. Am I wasting time and money, or is it worth it to save one from the crusher?

    Thanks

    My '74 has an NP 203 Transfer case. 12Bolt rear axle. Dana 44 front axle. All are stock. Full convertable K5s kick a$$! If it is in good enough shape, grab it, hold on to it, and fix it up when you can.
