I am looking to take a 91 GMC Jimmy 4x4, with a perfect body, to a 2WD
lowrider. I have no use for a 4WD. The guy who owns the truck pulled
the motor and tranny out of it to put into another vehicle and doesn't
need the Jimmy. The rear-end isn't that big of a deal. I'm planning on
doing a 3 link air-ride system. My concern is the front end. Can I
take a front clip out of a 2WD and install the front cross member and
suspension into the 4WD frame? Any help would be appreciated.
Why throw away a perfectly good truck body. I can get the 2WD
components. I'm just trying to see what's involved in doing it. People
keep frames and running gear all the time because the body is rusted
out. I'm just pulling a flip on that.
Interesting thought. Transfer case hangs too low to make that one
work. This thing is still going to be different because there are not
any that I have seen in my area with this body style lowered and still
have a removable half-top. This is the older style truck. I plan to
shave the door handles and stuff. Make and everyday driver but look a
Oh jeeze I thought you meant an S10 jimmy (IE: trash). Poor lil' Jimmy....
I've found the largest thing to make a lowered blazer look good is a cowl
induction hood. Somehow, it makes it so it's not quite so goofy looking. (No
way to have a non-goofy lowered FS jimmy) You can "clock up" the transfer
case by turning that lobe counter clockwise by a bolt or so - that way you
have a flatter belly pan. You can actually clock it up to it wont go below
the frame rails. www.offroaddesigns.com or www.coloradok5.com has
aftermarket cross-members so your belly pan will be flatter.
