    Pics of my \'81 Jimmy (work in progress)

    I have been following this board for a little while and thought I would posts some pics of my work in progress, an '81 Jimmy. It started life as a stock, metallic brown, original owner rig.

    [​IMG]

    So far I have done the paint (obviously), redone the the interior, installed Superwinch hubs, lifted it 6" and put on 35" BFGs. I also have an ARB and 4.10s waiting to go in.
    I am currently running the stock 305/4bbl, but it there much I can do with this motor? I thought about fuel injecting it, but I am not sure it is worth modding. Any others with 305s out there? Thanks.

    Duh!!!
    Didn't you see every body after 9/11?
    Need more inspiration?
    By the way for your 305, your best mod would be a cam change.
    Do a search on this forum for cam change on a 305, there is a lot of info.

    Thats one nice looking Jimmy! I'll bet you turn heads everywhere you go! I don't imagine you'll be rock crawling with it (I wouldn't want to scratch it yet!) So a mild cam, open up the breathing a bit and a higher stall would really do you well. Sweet ride!

    BorregoK5- Thanks! I don't mind getting a little banged up, as I painted it, so I can surely repaint it if need be.

    Z3PR- LOL! Yeah, I imagine that motor would work out nicely. I guess I'll stick with my small block, though. I have a Holley fuel injection kit coming for it and I hope that will help a bit.

    Stickseler- I have only lived in Denton for about 8 months. I moved here from San Diego earlier this year.
