And the "too small" door handles Terry Jessee mentioned earlier in the topic :

No gun rack in the '92 reissue...
Here's what it looks like:
I noticed the GMC Jimmy's roof has a vinyl-like texture, which matches the removable rear roof section:

Would a rear differential from one Monogram's GM van kits be accurate for the rear ends in question, here?
No, they're just as bad as the pickup rearends.

1) In the GMC Jimmy kit, the extra parts all represent Hickey parts available at the time (hood, grille guard, rear spare/fuel carrier). I'm building a version of the Jimmy that Hickey customized, called the Desert Fox (this one has an incorrect red grille guard, so it may have been pre-production).
2) The Jimmy kit did include a set of headers, along with a dual-intake air cleaner.
3) The wheel arch dimensions of the truck compared to the Blazer/Jimmy I believe to be different. This is based on the flares provided in the Jimmy kit; while they appear to fit the arches correctly on the box art, they are much too large for the truck wheel arches. In order to mount them, one would either have to cut out the fenders (which makes sense since the style is generally used to cover larger openings), or cut down the flares to fit the openings (I chose the latter, since it was easier to accomplish IMO).
4) Neither the Jimmy kit nor the GMC pickup kit come with stock-style steering wheels. The Jimmy comes with a nice "Grant GT-Series" style 4-spoke wheel, while the truck comes with a nice "Grant GT-Series" style 3-spoke wheel.

IIRC, the Monogram Dodge Ramcharger includes a roof rack as pictured on the Hickey Jimmy.
I'm using the one from the re-released Bronco kit. Oddly enough, even though the kits are different scales, the roof rack fits perfectly.

A stock steering wheel! Someone needs to find one of these and cast it.

The truck in that picture has buckets; no idea about console.

I'm still trying to get a set of those decals to put on a white-painted truck...

Not part of the Monogram 1/24 series. That is the Revell 1/25. It was issued as "Sneaky Pete" with
simulated Peterbilt nose, Billy Carter's Redneck Pickup, and many more, but not this group.
