Jakers 2wd build thread and conversion

I picked up my 2007 2wd back in 2009 with 11,000 miles , it had a 4" superlift and 35's on rockstars


First I did was bedlined the grill ( since Plastidip was really not popular yet )

Then I picked up a front bumper and added some lights


And got a just a rear bumper

And slowly over time I started changing things up , I wanted a tire carrier that hardly anybody had so I took a smittybilt xrc and had welded up the slant back and stamp steel on it


Added the hi lift

And a custom name badge

Front end now , I loved the look of the bumper but it was missing something so I had some tubing welded on and change out my lights

Painted my cowl and added a 32" bar to the hood with a decal

Made some steps/ rails from rubi rails

I picked up some used 37s to see if I liked them , feel in love with them

But started to hate having rockstars , so I got some bully's

Wow good job! I like the front bumper and grill guard. Good start to the build sub forum.

No complaints so far , you can really notice the extra droop that was gain and it pushed the shock away from the frame
Sorry I thought I had some pictures







This was how much shaft I had showing before , look at my brake line and you can really see the difference

And after
