Granted I will eventually get a 44, however I am running a 30 with 30 spline Chrome axles and haven't had any problems with it running 14.50x35 tires.
while a D 30 is not the best it isn't the end of the world either. D30 are easy to come by and you can upgrade later as.

If you get all the parts for the SAS we can install it in my shop for about $1800.00
one other thing you need to look at is on the T-case. make sure the front shaft is not a slip yoak.

I'd say go with the 44 front also! I have a matched set of axles, as I stated above, from a 70ish Bronco. It has a D44 front open knuckle driver drop, and a 9" rear center drop. Disc brakes in front and drum ib the rear all sitting on leaf springs and on a way heavier vehicle ta-bute! If it can stand up to a 351ci and a heavy FORD then I'm sure id due fine under your project! I'm gonna scrap the body anyways but the axles I can make a far deal on them :down:

If he got the ORD bolt on kit and did the labor of bolting everything up; how much would you charge to just weld the brackets to the frame? Its a super simple kit and pretty good deal he just doesn't like the idea of having just bolts holding it to the frame....
Peachy, how wide do they measure WMS to WMS?

Heya Peachy, I sent you a PM.

That sounds like a fair price. I'll have to do more research on this and probably take it slow. I definitely do not want to cause any breakage when im in a rural area miles away from the nearest shop. So I have to think and save my pennies.

Re: 1999 GMC Jimmy - TOO MUCH!
« Reply #26 on: May 11, 2012, 12:32:58 PM »


So I used to drive a 1998 Chevrolet K1500. One day I decided to get rid of it and sold it for $3800. I used that money and purchased a 1999 Jeep Cherokee (XJ). The thing was using more gas than my Silverado and ran really bad. I decided I needed to get rid of it and sold it for $3,300 when I purchased it for $3,000.

I then purchased a 1994 Toyota 4Runner SR5 for $2,400 and a spark plug shot out of the head when I thought it needed a completely new rebuilt. I disposed of it for $1,400. I took my lost and purchased a 1999 GMC Jimmy which looked great from the outside, but had hidden displesures.

* New fuel pump
* New Key Cylinder
* New TC seals -> Transmission
* Ball Joints
* Shocks
* A/C Actuator
* Compressor
* The list goes on

$800 later, the thing still ran like crap. Never again will I ever own a GMC. I lived under that thing (along with my K1500) more than I lived inside my house. Usually for repairs, not upgrades.

Traded that Jimbo for a this beauty "1989 4Runner 22re" lol. However, although it needs attention being 10 years older than that Jimbo it runs a lot better. I think I am finally done going through cars.

Purchased all of those cars under a 6 month period.
