Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

"My girlfriend at the time didn't want to ride around in, it because it was 'too stupid,'" laments a Jeep enthusiast, denied his dream of turning a YJ Wrangler into a Jurassic Park replica rig. Well he ditched the bitch and found his tribe; a unique group of Jeep owners with deadpan devotion to the epic dinosaur movie.

The Jurassic Park Motorpool, which includes at least one Explorer, one PowerWheels, and a whole heap of dead-ringer replicas of the first JP movie's Jeep Wrangler YJ. Somebody's even remaking that insane RV from Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World.


I'm not about to say "the square-eyed Wrangler doesn't have passionate fans" because I don't want folks from the YJ forums to kill me in my sleep, but I don't think I've ever met anyone quite so fired up about this generation of Jeep as these guys.

Anyway, it looks like they're having fun with their 4x4s and that's all I'm trying to see folks do. So good luck guys, may the JP fleet grow! And if any of you wants a first-gen Mercedes ML for their next Jurassic Park repli-truck project, my sister's selling hers.

Also, I want to find the group of guys dedicated to making Back To The Future Toyota Pickups.
