Got a deal on a 95 GMC Jimmy 2wd, 2 door. It came complete with a knocking 305 ( remember the deal part ). lol. Got a new 350 Goodwrench engine from Jegs, Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley 570 cfm Street avenger carb,MSD wires, HEI dist, Alum Radiator with dual electric fans,new 700R4 from Bowtie Overdrives with Transgo kit, B&M ratchet shifter and Hedman Hedders /Flowmaster dual exhaust.

Getting 21 MPG on the highway !! Not super fast but it will get out of its own way.

It almost looks like they made the nose a little longer on the later models. I'm thinking some of the S-10 V-8 swaps I have seen looked more crowded front to back than yours. Really cool daily driver though. Clay

Thanks Clay. Actually there is more engine compartment room in the older ones. We installed a 454/450 hp engine in an older S-10 pickup but that engine would never fit in this Jimmy without removing the heater box and inner fenders. lol

Just not a lot of room under the hood on the newer ones. When the spark plugs are used up on this one, it will be sold. No way I want to tackle that job. Laughing

Hedman Hedders, std S-10 's . Nothing special but almost impossible to remove or install three of the rear cylinders without lifting the engine and going thru the wheelwell.
