1980 Jimmy Build - K5 owner again...

Overview

I am finally a K5 owner again. I had previously owned a 1988 Blazer in college but had to sell it due to rust starting up and questionable fuel mileage (without the knowledge or funds to fix either). Fast forward 20 years or so and I got the urge to pick up another project. Found this 1980 GMC Jimmy nearby and picked it up. It was running at the time but has a lot of issues that I'll need to address.

Current plan is to bring this back to daily driver status as a father/son project and make it a nice vehicle for road trips, some off-roading, and just general fun.

Planned upgrades:
LQ4 engine swap
4L80e trans and NP241 transfer case
Fix all of rust
New wiring harness
Fix all of the creature comforts that have fallen into disrepair
Mild suspension lift (3-4")
35" tires
