Jimbo Grissom, of Seminole, Texas, had envisioned building a lifted 1971 Chevy K10 4x4 for over ten years. So when he finally found the perfect starting point, it took him over two years to build it exactly how he wanted it. Tearing apart the truck and unbolting every last bolt, Jimbo now has something to be very proud of. Demented Customs, in Hobbs, New Mexico, and Seminole Automotive had a hand in making Jimbo’s dream become reality.
Jimbo had the guys at Demented Customs shave the gas filler and cover the whole truck in victory red paint with ghost flames. The bed wood was also changed out for new solid oak.
Not wanting to blend in at all, Jimbo installed a Superlift 8-inch suspension lift and a 3-inch body lift on top of that for a heaven-reaching stance. To fill the fenders, Jimbo bolted on a set of 15x14-inch Cragar mod wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson Baja Belted 39x18x15 tires.
Under the new carpet, Jimbo installed a layer of Dynomat to drown out the sound of the 39-inch Mickey Thompsons. He also decided to change out the seats in favor of a set of 1985 Cadillac electric buckets. In the dash, a Pioneer CD head unit was installed to crank some sweet country tunes.
Under the hood sits a 383ci stroker. A Holley 750 carb sits on top of an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold. The engine is assisted with ceramic-coated Hedman headers bolted to a custom exhaust. Power is planted to the road with the help of a set of 3:73 gears.
