Flat Out Autos decided to take it upon themselves to bring back the full-sized GMC Jimmy, which was the Big Red equivalent of the K5 Chevrolet Blazer back in the day.

The walkaround video speculates the pricing; luckily, we have the answer to that question. Customers can expect to pay around $120,000 USD for the truck, which is hefty but expected for a custom-built vehicle like this one.
But, you’ll be paying for fabrication that makes that truck look like it came straight from the factory, with everything blending seamlessly together, not to mention those wheels and beefy tires that add some aggression to the build.
