Look under the front of the vehicle. If you see a differential it is 4wd, if not it is 2wd.
There is a cable for the front differential. One end goes to the front differential, one end goes to a vacuum actuator under the battery. That is what most commonly is wrong with those vehicles.
The GMC Jimmy is rear wheel drive. The only time the front wheels pulled is if it was a 4x4.
what is stock differential ratios for a 1979 gmc jimmy
No. It is standard rear-wheel drive truck until the 4WD mode is engaged.
Most Jimmies use a vacuum ball to engage the front diff in 4 wheel drive. It will be located in the engine compartment mounted to one of your fender wells (changes from year to year). Make sure that the vacuum line from the ball to the diff is in good shape and is not leaking.
The best place to find the diagram for the rear differential on a 2000 GMC Jimmy is at the dealer. The dealer carries diagrams and manuals for all the the repair work.

on most 83s the front axle is locked by vacume. There is a vacume canister on the right hand fender well under the hood check the vacume hoses to the transfer case
The best place to find an exploded view is at your local dealer. They should be able to print you a copy. The front diff should be the same on all models including your diamond addition.
I have a 2000 Jimmy and just had to have new ball joints put in yesterday for the same problem and then had an alignment done on it today.
It's probably a problem with the differential. In 4wd you're putting pressure on the gears that isn't there in 2wd.
it should be behind the front wheel on top it has 2 wires running to it.

Need to know if 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive for the front. Either way, there is no nut on the back axles.
The differential fluid on a GMC Jimmy is changed by removing the drain plug, draining the fluid, and re-installing the drain plug. The filler plug can then be taken out, fluid added until it reaches the bottom of the filler hole, and the plug re-installed.
You have to disconnect the wires from the passenger side wheel well then get under the truck and take off the front part of the drive shaft from the transfer case to the front axle then take off the bottem half of the bell housing finally take the two bolts out of the starter and you should have the room to wiggle it out HAVE FUN!

The encoder motor is located on the transfer case. The transfer case is on the driver's side of the truck. It resides between the front drive line, and the wall of the transfer case.
if you look under your vehicle the oil pan is going to be in the middle of the front of your jimmy in between your front tires you have to look up alittle but its there
