Default 99 Jimmy 1 ton build

Joined a few months ago , posted a few pics and have been getting a lot of requests for build info. so I figured I would post a build thread.

here is what i started with :
bone stock 99 Jimmy 2 dr with 150k



I had a set of 1 ton Axles from a 98 Dodge just taking up space. so......



I decided they would go great under the Jimmy , so the cutting began







Rear was first , because it was much easier .... Stock springs with a couple of leafs added , SOA.


On to the front , homemade cross member , Dakota leafs SOA. Axle set 2" foward , Astro van gear box and TJ drop pitman arm. 1.5 DOM steering with 7/8 heims

Picked up a set of Military H1's with 37" Goodyears, recentered the H1's to 3"back space with Copperhead Fab centers:



Custom built front bumper all made from 3/16th plate


Ended up with this :



First trip out in the woods and I popped the motor



So out with the old and in with the new ......



While it was down for the motor swap I went ahead and pulled the trans and transfer case . Had the 4l60e rebuilt with all the goodies and swapped out the 236 for a 213c manual shift from a 93 s-15.
I made up some rock rails and swapped the 37's for 39.5's

I used a 231c out of a 93 S-15 , I still need to put another tone ring on the output shaft so it will shift gears in 4lo but I'll get to that later.

Seen most of this on the C.O.R.E. website. Coolness. Best story was trying it out with the welds only tacked and it falling down.
