I'm looking at a 91 jimmy to replace my 85 s15 there both 4x4s the jimmy has the big 4.3l over the rebuilt 2.8l in my truck the jimmy has 210k kilometers on it.

and was thinking my truck needs a few little things ive got a stack of reseets here for parts and am thinking do I fix these little things or let someone else fix them now this jimmy is auto over my standard.


I guess my real question is do you guys think I should sell the pickup and buy the jimmy or not I am leaning towards the jimmy just unsure of fuel injection problems cuz i hear they can get pricey it runs like a top though.

If it's a CPI then yes, the fuel injection spider is pricey to replace, but you can get rebuild kits for it now, save some money then. But 1991 was still just TBI, so no real big deal there. The TBI 4.3 motors are usually pretty trouble free.
Side note:
Your mileage will go down a bit compared to where you are with the 2.8/5 speed now.

What's the big deal if it was? The 4l60e came out in the S-Series in 1992 models. If I remember right, it was an M30 RPO.
The only real difference in 4l60/4l60e is the electronics..........

here she is has a littler surface rust but for that im gonna take it down to the metal then put bedliner stuff that I think duplicolor makes it has kevlar in it and it can be painted over it wont rust so i'll just use tremclad paint on it so if i ever get rock chips on it all i need to do is spray it on in that spot it gonna be from the trim down on both sides so it wont matter if its off from the regular paint abit
