with the jimmy being so bad on gas, im looking into something a lil better.

the "car" in question is a lil 4x4 chevy tracker. a buddy at work has it forsale, it just needs a heatercore and brakes.

how reliable are these things? worth it to buy for a couple hundred?

it will be "manly'd up" either camo or black or just a clean white

maybe i paint it the same color as the jimmy, since it is the micro machine version of it, its even a convertable ;)

you can do a 2" body lift and 2"coilspacer lift run 30" tires and get 6.5" of lift from stock. if you go 31" you tend to lose to much power and you gain and extra 1/2" lift from stock if its standard it should be ok as long as its got the 512 gear set autos usually have 430. heres mine 02 tracker 2 and 2 with 30" tires and 512 gear swap and locking hubs
