Here’s How Much A Modern-Day GMC Jimmy Will Cost18
As GM Authority has covered in the past, Flat Out Autos’ modern-day GMC Jimmy offers prospective customers the opportunity to own a General Motors’-derived off-road SUV alternative to the Ford Bronco. Now, pricing for the 4X4 Jimmy has officially been released.
Per a social media post from Flat Out Autos, the base price for the conversion starts at $129,950, which includes the purchase of a new 2023 GMC Sierra or 2023 Chevy Silverado. Flat Out Autos also offers optional upgrades like a Fox suspension setup, roof rack, and custom wheel and tires packages for extra charge.
It’s worth noting that there are only 10 spots left for 2023.
As background, Flat Out Autos takes a GMC Sierra 1500 pickup in Single Cab / Long Bed configuration, and chops the bed down to 5 feet, 8 inches, and forms a true unibody construction. Power-folding rear seats are added out back, while the roof is designed to be removable to provide an open-air experience, as desired. In addition, there’s been rumors that other iterations of the Jimmy will be offered, including an extended-wheelbase variant, as well as a four-door variant. However, only the single-cab style is offered at this time.
Designed around the AT4 or Trail Boss trim levels, this custom SUV is powered by the 5.3L V8 L84, which produces 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque from the factory. As expected from an all-terrain SUV, each unit features a four-wheel drivetrain.

Flat Out Autos took its GMC Jimmy build to the 2022 SEMA Show, and was showered with positive responses from fans. The Jimmy was on display at the Flat Out Autos booth (Central Hall Booth #24675) alongside the 1968 International Travelall Restomod. Looking towards the future, Flat Out Autos stated that they will build more units of the off-roader, and that each will be uniquely tailored to the client’s specifications.

This 3rd party Jimmy is definitely cool, but not at that price.
Why GM refuses to produce a Bronco/Wrangler fighter is beyond me. I suppose all of their time has been consumed with EV’s and their never ending lineup of boring and anemic soccer mom CUV’s.
If they made a real Jimmy, I would be first in line with cash in hand.
I’m guessing that being based on a work truck is why it’s limited to a 5.3L – nothing bigger is available in that spec.
Also unavailable in a regular cab work truck? A dash, infotainment system, and interior that looks like it belongs in a $140,000 vehicle, even after it’s been colored to richen it up. The exterior looks cool, but that’s also where all the money’s gone.
You’re right they always let Ford and dodge run over them!!!!
Just remember GM sales more full size pickups then anyone…. more then Ford or Ram….when you combine GMC and Chevrolet…..so what are they doing wrong here?
What are they doin’ wrong? How about chasing their core Chevy and GMC consumers to the compitition! GM has been loosing sales to Ford and Ram for years. Between super ugly trucks, too just plain overpricing their trucks. Let alone, having to buy “Packages” one does not want or need, to get something you do. I’ve said it before, Bring back alacart ordering. If GM makes it for something, one should be able to order it! Especially for how much these things cost now Bring back COPO!!!!!!!
I’d like to see a 2×2 version and for what the custom shops charge to do one this is a pretty good deal
The reason why they don’t produce it is that you may be the only one in line to buy it….I love it also and would like to see it, however four door version (Tahoe) is way more practical.
Maybe GM should concentrate on making all the “still waiting” customers who bought and paid for products in their trucks that they are NOT getting! Listen up Mary!!
Just give us a loaded short wheel base regular cab 4×4 , RST, Trailboss, with a available 6.2 V8
WOW!!!!! GM needs to rethink their future. I don’t agree with the fact, no one will buy this. That way of thinking for the consumer comes about because GM has been telling and selling us, what they say we want/need. The reaction at the SEMA show, is more than enough to build this new Jimmy/Blazer, in house. GM still hasn’t a Raptor beater. They keep tweeking the Canyon/Colorado, but that isn’t the answer. We need to see a REAL full size SUV again. Yes it will be a limited group who will buy it. But, IT WILL SELL! GM is loosing more market share, day by the day. I know some one will say, it’s only BOOMERS, who will buy these. Yeh, but we are VERY large in numbers. GM is really missing the boat! BUILD IT!!!!!!! Along with a short box PU!
Everything you said is not true. They be lucking to sell 10k of them. They are not wanted, people always get happy when they see it but then no purchase. In todays market you have to make what sells the most not what you think might sell. GM is not loosing market share they actually just increased it last quartler. Raptor is not a big seller so, but you might see a ZR2 with a supercharger yet. But who really needs it.
Joe. While I don’t fully agree with your insight, Yes GM may or may not bring this to market. Consumers are fickle. But we, as those consumers, should be able to have more of a choice today, Other than 14 diffrent versions of the same small suv’s. If GM were to build this, I still say it would sell.
GM ruined the blazer ,trail blazer names they need to go After bronco wrangler / 4runner grand Cherokee buyers .still have the jimmy name. lot of us just drive past gmc or chevy dealer s , when we are looking for a recreational vehicle before overlanding was a word . we want short wheel base 4runner 109” best trail rig no more than 118” 4dr wrangler , I want a wagon long before suv word , 6 ‘ cargo bay to camp out of. No roof top tents ,crew cabs are to big most have 5.5 short box 145” wheel base my input
If we’re going to dream, let’s go big! Make it a 2500 with an Allison transmission and a 6.6 DuraMax!
Seriously GM should have made an H3 EV as their Hummer volume pusher to compete with the Wrangler/Bronco and the full sized Hummer EV as the limited halo model. IMO they have left a lot of money on the table not making a Wrangler sized Hummer this generation.
“chops the bed down to 5 feet, 8 inches, and forms a true unibody construction.”
Uhm, what? Pretty sure this is still a body-on-frame vehicle…
I want to know what the heck everybody does for a living cause I’m in my truck more than anywhere else constantly chasing work trying to stay busy and I’ve seen house for sale cheaper than that how can anybody afford this $hit
Seems like a lot of comments here are pointing to GM for this build. The vehicles built into full-size Blazers/Gimmys are from a custom shop built to order for the customer. There are many shops out there that will take what the manufacturer will not do and finish the vehicle to your liking. Flat Out brought to market what GM will not do and they are selling their product. GM has nothing to do with what they are doing. I remember the 1992 2-door 4-wheel drive unit. I wanted a 2-wheel drive and back then I asked my dealer clients about it and they said GM will NOT build a 2×2 Tahoe because nobody wanted one. Mexico had them before we did in the US. GM did build it in ’95 for us 2×2 crazies with a 30k price that scared people off but they sold every 2-wheel 2-door they made. I had 2 and made money on both. Now we want an updated 2×2 and companies like Flat Out will get it done. As for the amount charged to build this, it is pretty much in line with what it costs to build you a “custom.” And if you think the custom SUV/truck market is dumb or not a big thing then you need to go to a custom truck show and see for yourself. Right now it is the fastest growing part of the $50B plus specialty vehicle market. I’ve been in the customizing business for more than 50 years and the Hartmans have been involved in building custom vehicles since the 1800s. One of a kind is not cheap. There are plenty of customers willing to pay for originality.
