    I keep calling it that, too /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif BUT I do so knowing that in a year's time it will "grow up" past mine. "Cute little Jimmy" /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif .
    He sold this rig this past spring:

    So I think it is just a matter of time before that Cute Little Jimmy is riding high!

    It has lived in northern Wisconsin it's whole life. The body work was done supposedly 2 years ago but the rockers are real bad underneath and some other spots are bubbling. The floor is shot. I've seen worse, though!

    He won't be building the K30. He'll put the Dana 60 & 14FF into the Jimmy. Still trying to decide on the 454, which needs work, or the fuel injected 350 that is in the Jimmy. He'll put the 1/2 ton stuff in the pickup & sell it to try to make some of the money back that we have into it. The floor needs work ASAP, because the front seats are barely mounted and I think the front seatbelts are just mounted to the interior carpeting /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. But hey, the A/C is nice! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Hey...he stole my idea (buy K30, sell it with 1/2 ton parts under it).

    How much will he want for the blue truck when it's done? It looks like a nice truck to me...and the perfect color.

    [/ QUOTE ] Sounds like the condition my truck was in a few months ago! Good luck with the floor, should prove to be a.. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif.. experience. I've got a welder, so if ya two ever need help gettin things done, just yell. Steve (heavy4x4) and I are hitting pipeline this weekend with some friends, I'll be sure to take pictures (probably of steve wheeling, and me getting stuck on that 14bolt lip) /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Re: Pics of Hubby\'s New Ride

    Thanks for the offer of help. That is very nice of you! We have the welder over at the shop so we're all set. Just need to find the money for parts! Maybe once we sell the car or something. If you know anyone looking for a nice little car...... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif yeah right!

    Re: Pics of Hubby\'s New Ride

    It took a lot of patience to find a regular cab single wheel K30! I don't know for sure if he'll sell it, or turn it into a stock 1/2 ton and keep it "just in case", or what! I will keep your name though and let you know when/if we are doing something with it.
