Default 98 jimmy poor guy slow build

so i picked her up for 300 with no reverse, another 300 later and she had a new Trans. then i traded my 96 Sierra beater on 33s for the labor to putnit in. then a 2 inch crank on the t bars and new shackels and shocks all off amazon. i was hopeing to run 32s but i cant afford a body lift currently so i may just go with 31s of course i cant afford those either. im still new.on the fourm so im still trying to figure out pic posting[img]jimmy https://imgur.com/a/tLu8o[/img]

Not a bad deal for $300. The body looks pretty straight on it.

Looks like a fantastic deal for $300. Paint on the body looks great, plenty of new parts. I will be watching this build. Congrats on your new Jimmy!
