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.
