Jurassic Park

This is going to be a slow thread of my Jurassic Park build for my truck. I'll post what I've done so far up to this point, then hopefully in the future I can keep building on to what I've got. I hope you like it as much as I do haha

I started with a 2001 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner, which I think already has a really nice look.

Hopefully one day I can give it the tires and lift it deserves, and some other fun perks.

Then came the decals I got from a friend as a Christmas present last year that I've been holding onto. Thanks for the gift! I love it!
The sides are 5 layer decals, each color having it's own layer, and I've never done decals before, so this was really challenging. I started with the hood, since that is just one color, but even that was a learning experience that I wish I could do over again.
I had bubbles and got really worried on how it looked, but after time passed, the bubbles went away, and they look great today.

Now here I am taping everything off and shooting it with primer.
I had to sand down the mirror housing because they were very worn, rough, and ugly. They had become very discolored. I couldn't find a photo of me doing this to the rims, but I did the same to them, if I find a picture later I'll post it.
Had plastic red paint for outdoor use on the mirror housing, with multiple layers.
And for the rims I did the primer coats, as well as several layers of red automotive paint. I think I did 4 coats of each, but I should have done more. In one spot on my back driver rim I have a piece that is now missing, but I guess after 7 months of trail riding, puddle skipping, mud running, and dinosaur evading that is not bad.
Some spots on the mirror housing have chipped too on the paint, but I expected it. It's not on the bare face of the housing, but the hard to deal with inside corners and such. And same with the rim, not on the flat face, but right where it meets the tire it chipped just a little bit.

Here is the roll bar when I was priming it sitting on cardboard in the yard. I originally picked it up for my old truck, a 1996 Ford Ranger. I used it for that truck and loved the look, and am glad I kept the roll bar for this build.
Originally the roll bar is for a Jeep Comanche pickup truck. It fit in the Ranger with no mods needed. For my Nissan, I had to set the front legs on blocks to get it to sit level, as the wells for my Nissan are a bit higher than for the other trucks.
This has the most wear on it, as I do use my truck bed for hauling small loads, and the roll bars make a great fastening point for ropes/straps and hooks or anything else.

Did a 3 inch body lift on her and now she's sitting pretty. Haha. Had the roll bars off for the last picture day after lifting her. But makes the 'yota look small haha. Love that.

Looking to do a suspension lift, anyone in Florida (Ocala, Citrus area) know of a good shop? I was hoping to do a long arm suspension lift 4-6 inches or so. The higher the better! Hahaha. Then depending on that I'd like to get a performance chip upgrade and some new mud-terrain rubber (long overdue!).

I have more pictures, but they're lost in my SD card somewhere haha. Stay tuned.

Just went around town today looking into a few shops asking if anyone could do a suspension lift. Found one that says they can, I'm supposed to go back on Tuesday and he said he'll take a look at it, and then also fix my long overdue oil leak whenever he does the lift. Let's hope things pan out well. :S
