1986 GMC JimmyReview
I Owned This In The Late '90's. — Bought from a family member (who will remain unnamed here) who never ever changed the oil in 50k. Oil removed was silver in colour. Throttle body engine was changed for a 2.8L out of a carburated '81 Camero and fit with only two small bolt-on changes made from parts at hand.
Pros: Very good handling and ride height. Had lots of room.
Cons: Body also rusted out bad.

A Fantastically Good Looking, And Reliable Suv.
Considering the age of the vehicle and the miles it has, there is really very little I dislike about the vehicle. I suppose the play on the steering is something I need to have looked at, but other th... Read More
