LSX Frontyard Swap: 1998 GMC Jimmy

The seller of this next car describes it as “not a hackjob backyard swap”...which makes me wonder, where would you do an LSX swap into a 90s GMC Jimmy? In the realm of places to do swaps, from a Jay Leno style climate controlled garage to a dirt patch behind the Waffle House in Woooostaaaa, I’m gonna lean towards doing my Jimmy swaps at the latter, but I love waffles more than Jay Leno. And I mean that exactly how you might interpret it. Find this 1998 GMC Jimmy offered for $5000 in Northbridge, MA via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

Up for sale is my 1998 LS swapped GMC Jimmy. The vehicle is a southern truck with not a spec of rust anywhere.
The truck was swapped correctly this is not a hackjob backyard swap. Everything in the vehicle works correctly as it should. Truck runs and drives great i would not hesitate to drive it anywhere. There is about 130k Miles on the body and about 80k on the engine – 20k miles on the built 4l60e transmission. Have a dyno sheet somewhere truck made 335whp\315tq on a mild tune.
Truck is stock interior and a complete sleeper.

If i were to keep it i would Re-run the battery cable to the inside of the cab instead of along the frame – there are no issues with how it is but would be a smarter setup. I would recommend moving the transmission cooler to the grille as it is currently relocated underneath the vehicle (trans temp stays steady as is however)
