Jimmy rebuild thread

Overview

I never had a build thread. Built it before I knew of CK5. Thank goodness. If not, it would be on leafs and one tons.:whistle:

So I will post when I rebuild stuff. As if anyone cares.

Broke the truck at King of the Hammers. 200 feet from where I broke it the year before.:doah: Hooked a rock with the right front tire, at 2mph. Stripped the splines out of the pitman arm this year. Hit a rock at 2mph last year, going the other way. Broke the ears off of the stearing box. Drove it back to camp both times.

So a fix is needed. I made 2 new pitman arms. They are custom for my cantilever cross over stearing. Now I have a spare. I should mention I stripped one out last summer.

I won a TNA winch cradle at BB last year, so it is time to install. I think I am going to try and use it as part of the mounting system for the hydro assist ram. Yes it is going up high.

I should mention I bought the system after I stripped the pitman are last summer. Just got lazy and never installed it.

As of this afternoon, I remover the stock bumper. Will hate to see it go. Liked having it somewhat stock looking. And removed the hidden hitch.

Collecting parts with no real plan for the end. I just know I'm not cool without an LS swap and tons.
Bought this truck, 4wd, 5.3 base with 105k on the odometer. Truck was beat on by the previous owner. Tried to be a snow plower. Back into a Mercedes on his first day. Must have been moving. I was going to pull the body and set the blazer on it. Lowered 4wd DD. FTW. Not going to happen. So I am going to build a flat bed. Already added electric seats and cruise control Today it started. Hitch is a little bent. Bed removal by myself. I new I had to deal with this. Got it...
Went to Portland on 11/11/11. Left at 1pm. Ran out of fuel at the truck stop 1 mile from the dealer. Got it fueled and restarted. Running lights started flickering off, then quit. A short was loading the breaker. Chased it somewhere in the head rack. Cut that feed. Rain started. Go figure. Wipers looked good. Were rock hard and began falling apart after 30 minutes. New were installed. 5 hours into the trip we finally found the heater line valve. Heat started working. For a full story on...
