    Extreme Thor Fun For Someone Who Wants A Great, Well Handling, Kept Up Truck — The truck has alittle rust from Washington. Been through the Mountains with no problems, handles extremely well. Easy and safe to handle even with the big tires. Gas milage isnt to bad on the highway, sucks in the city. Lots of power!

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its fully loaded with alarm system, and you can start it from the outside. Big beautiful tires and rims, great stereo system. Roomy for traveling long distance. Original paint and interior. Has the bar with lights in the front and Tow bar in the back. Runs great! New Trani, brakes,tires, and I make third owner, my mother second owner. Very well kept up, and Air-Raid filter, clean enginge, removable cab

    Cons: Gas in the city.

    I Love Jimmy — Well its a long story but basicly it needs a new fuel system, the engine is in nearly mint condition including new brakes, shocks, tranny, clutch and runs strong when its running of course. Its in near working order now thanks to a few favours. Theres little to no rust and is really one of my fav 4xs <3

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Its old yet in beautiful shape, best thing about it is its mine and you cant have it lmao

    Cons: Its not yet ready for me but by February its gonna get a beating

    89 Jimmy — it is fun on or off road or in the snow. the performance isn't the best with the R700 tranny. braking is touchy and cna be slugish. handling is extreamly touchy reason being is that the vechiles design is not ment for power steering. maintenance is fairly cheap. as far as the fuel goes 30 gallon tank and 15mpg on a good day.... you do the math. it is built like a tank and can not be killed easly

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: really sturdy, fun to drive in most weather, lots of interior room, removable top

    Cons: pour fuel econ., steering

    1989 Jimmy — It is bright orange, the body is in great shape, for a v6 the thing has quite a bit of power. The stario make some good sound and the truck is a blast to drive. Everyone should have an 89 jimmy.

    Pros: power

    Cons: year

    Reliable, Strong, Fun — My dad bought this Jimmy in 1992 when it was just three years old and our family has used it ever since. It has never stranded us other than one time when the fuel pump went out. But other than that it has been a great vehicle! In 2009 we got it repainted because the paint was completely ruined. It gets pretty good gas mileage for a 1989 (20 highway) (16-17 just driving around). It isn't the fastest thing in the world but it is built like a tank! Overall, if you want an easy to work on and easy to maintain truck that you want to be able to drive around without being worried about breaking down or leaving you stranded then you should consider buying one of these beasts!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: cheap easy to work on king kong v8 350 small block

    Cons: Has stiff suspension
