Welcome to Week to Wheelin’ 2017! Wake up and smell the Jeep parts. We have one week to bring this beaten ’07 JK from rotted-out raccoon paradise to mud slingin’ rock-wranglin’ trail-taming machine.

We’re here on Day 1, laying out all of our parts, formulating a plan, and getting excited for what this ’07 Wrangler will look like by the end of the week. The entire crew is on deck turning wrenches and taking pictures as we start tearing into the Jeep.
