Hello all I am new here and I must say I have found alot of information and it looks great. The question I have for all K5/Jimmy owners is this. Is it worth it to buy a K5/Jimmy at this time? With gas prices at an all time high, and they will not ever retreat either by the looks of it. I am looking at a 1987 GMC Jimmy fullsize, with a 4 inch lift, fuel injected 350, mint interior, command start, but the body is very rough. It has just over 200,000 KM and the guy wants $3,000 for it. Engine, Tranny, Transfer case have never been rebuilt before. The truck has sat in a parking lot for the last 8 months and not driven, started sometimes though. I went to look at it recently and I started it for the first time in 5 months, and she fired right up. Problems. Rockers panels are completely rusted out. Front fenders have rust on the top of the fender lip. Rear have same problem. Tailgate has huge dent, cannot be repaired. Tailgate also very rusty. The underside has alot of rust spots and by the looks of it would need to be blasted, then undercoated. I have wanted a K5 or full size jimmy for years as I live in Canada in the prairies and the 4 wheel drive and command start are the best thing to have in the winters. I was planning on buying this then restoring it next year. New metal all around, hood, doors, fenders, tailgate, rear sections, floorpans, the pan in the back of the truck, complete body off. Frame blasted/painted, then everything in the drivetrain rebuilt, including a brand new Chevy 350 Multi Port Fuel Injected engine. Is this wise? Or am I just making a costly mistake in buying a 4X4 with gas at $1.19 per litre? Thank you.
