Offroad 86 jimmy 38.5 4in lift a.k.a. Big jim

This is not a dedicated trail rig, but does trailer to the destination usually. I am currently in the planning phase of doing a 52/56" spring swap, and getting back to being more road worthy.

Overview

Ok, first things first, this thread will be a slow starter. I do not spend alot of time on the computer outside of work, and most of my pictures are at home or on camaras (that i do not have access to at work). But I have a few here to get started.

Here we go,

I found this truck on C-list for $600 obo. Said it ran and drove in 1st gear, but no higher gears. Went and picked it up on a friday night after work for $300. Got the truck home and started to dig in.
