Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!

Sorry for the lack of updates, im a busy man these last few months with the build and work my girlfriend has been posting pics for me. As for the back glass it is getting replaced and so is the headliner, it sucks that i wont be able to but paint on it this year so its going to look the same as it did before on the outside lol, but as of now the body is back on the frame for good now and the whole truck is getting re wired front to back. Stay tuned!

Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!

looks like his website, more specifically the store side of it, has malware so even his website tries to rip people off. Would love to see more updates on this blazer.

Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!

Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!

Hello all! Sorry for the lack of replies. I just pulled the jimmy out of storage and started working on it again. Added rear shocks yesterday (will post pics soon). Plan on adding front shocks, doing interior work, new custom sub box, and amp rack before summer. But most likely won't get it pained until next winter.

Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!

The fuel cell came from metalworx fab, little update for yall! I now have shocks front and back (pics when i get out of work), reworked my amp rack and moved both my batterys inside of the amp rack so you cant see them, also had a new sub enclosure built, and now im currently working on redoing the brakes and installing carpet

Re: Army Green Jimmy redo!









upper shock mounts,i made them out of 1/4 inch plate and then wrapped the edges in 3/8 cold rolled and blended it together to give it a flared factory type look

here are some photo's from camp n drag










camp n drag was bad for me last year, got to drunk was driving around when i shouldn't have been, couple people fell out of the back of the jimmy, and then i tried to start a fight with a really big guy in a jeep. I would like to apologize to anyone who was there and was affected by my jackassery
