Default Justins Build (98 GMC Jimmy)

Hey guys I am starting my build thread! I am new to this site but wanted to show you guys the starting product!

I have done a few things to it already but not real big things. The things i have done so far.

New tires - All Terrains 29" Dueler revo 2's
Painted rims - black
Painted calibers - red(To match truck)
Replaced sway bar bushings for improved handling
Installed 2 12" Subwoofers with 1800 Watt Amp and installed Kenwood deck
Painted grill black (Kept letters red)
Installed HID kit (5000k Super White)
Installed 2 fog lights on front bumper (Where front license plate go's)
And a little more upgrades but no need to post.

Future plans-

2" Add a leaf kit
2" Shackles
2" T Bar Crank
Front grill guard
Painting rocker covers and fender trim black
and that's all I have for now. Looking for more ideas

And here is pics of what the truck looks like right now!

Rex: yes they are first gen wheels. I believe 87 s10 blazer wheels im pretty sure.
They came on the vehicle when I bought it and they had surface rust on gunk on them so i restored them and painted them gloss black. And thanks! I have been looking at your build and have got many ideas from yours that i want to do with mine! You have an awesome truck man, I plan on doing all that with mine one day.

Little important update -

This build will go kinda slow now for a little bit because I just had to replace my starter.

150$ later and I was able to start my jimmy!
I did get new headlights and taillights tho.
Will post pics of them soon
