Love of Jeeps spawned into desire to have a cool project. Goals: Jeep to take to the mountains, something I could work on, and “cool”. Being a huge movie buff, was browsing the web and fell in love with the LOOK of the Jurassic Jeeps. Fun, Off-roadable, Movie related, this project just hit all the right notes! There were 4 Jeeps used in the original film, each with slight differences, I modeled this off of #29, which doesn’t see a lot of screen time, but #12 and #18 were already in Denver, and I didn’t want to duplicate anyone’s number. I got extremely lucky and #29 was reused in Jurassic World! Since this jeep is used off road I choose to upgrade some components to modern versions for reliability sake; so while not 100% screen accurate, most people wouldn’t know which model/year of each component was used in the film.
