One of the stars of the 2019 SEMA Show was a modern K2 generation Chevy Tahoe made to look like a classic K5 Blazer. While it wasn’t for everyone, the attention to detail was notable, and it’s a cool idea nobody else has tried to do. Flat Out Autos, the company that made that original Chevy Tahoe K5 Blazer conversion, has teased their next product on Facebook, and it looks like a GMC Jimmy, based on the K2 Yukon. We don’t mind.
Flat Out Autos hasn’t yet said if this new “retro mod” is happening, but based on the teaser and feedback of the original, it’s probably in the works. So far, the company hasn’t given any details other than the photo itself, but that’s enough to get an idea of what this SUV is going to be like.
As with the K5 Blazer conversion, this Jimmy looks like its based on the 2015-2020 K2 generation GMC Yukon or Chevy Tahoe. This could mean that the all-new T1 GM SUVs won’t work for the project.

We really like what’s going on with the sides of the SUV, as the door handles have been swapped out for some period spec chrome units, and the horizontal lines and crisp wheel arches are just like a classic K5 1970s GMC Jimmy.
Overall, this is a very good recreation of a classic SUV, and offers a unique ride to anyone who wants classic style with modern running parts, or just wants to stand out from the crowd a bit. But if it’s like Flat Out Autos’ K5 Tahoe, expect it to cost a similar hefty $69,000 before the vehicle itself.
