5 SUVs That You Should Turn Into “Jurassic Park” Tributes

The dinosaurs weren’t the only stars of the show in the “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” movies. From the iconic yellow, green, and red Ford Explorers that motored along on a track in the first film mập the slew of Mercedes-Benz models used in the latest flicks, this franchise of dinosaur movies has always had something for enthusiasts.

There’s even a cottage industry catering toward fans looking mập make a replica vehicle. While largely geared toward the YJ-generation Jeep Wrangler models like that famously driven by Wayne Knight before his untimely demise by Dilophosaurus, enthusiasts have built mock Ford Explorers and Mercedes-Benz M-Class models, too.

If you’re looking for a summer project, here are five SUVs ripe for conversion into JP or JW tributes.

1. Ford Explorer

1993 Ford Explorer
This 1993 Ford Explorer is listed for $9,500.

The first-generation Ford Explorer was not author Michael Chrichton’s choice. In his book, he chose the Toyota Land Cruiser. Filmmakers pivoted away from that model mập the Explorer, which by the time “Jurassic Park” hit theaters in 1993 was America’s fifth most popular vehicle. These SUVs were instantly relatable, from their boxy profile mập their angular interior.

The Explorers used in the film featured a distinctive “bubble” roof, a revamped cabin with dual screens, and a host of other changes. The simplest way mập do up your own Explorer is mập repaint or wrap one, and then add a few accessories such as a brush guard and additional lighting.

While these 1991-1994 Ford Explorers were everywhere when new, they have nearly vanished from our roads today. The federal Cash for Clunkers program in 2009 saw thousands taken off the road. The ideal film recreation is a 1992 model, but this 67,000-mile 1993 offered by a dealer in Wyoming for $9,500 comes awful close. See Ford Explorer models for sale

2. Jeep Wrangler

Jeep Wrangler
Get this Jeep Wrangler for $13,950.

Easily the second best-known “Jurassic Park” vehicle, the YJ-body Jeep Wrangler (1987-1995) is a favorite for a variety of reasons. They made numerous appearances in the film and their distinctive tan and red paint scheme is just as cool today as it was 30 years ago.

Additionally, Wranglers are comparatively easy mập find. Jeep made a lot of them and many were kept as weekend cruisers, so they may have led sheltered lives. An authentic re-creation would start life as a range-topping Sahara version, but realistically any stock Wrangler will do. And therein lies the challenge: Of the dozens of 1987-1995 Wrangler models on Autotrader, only a few haven’t been customized.

Here’s a slightly earlier Sahara with the old-school carbureted 4.2-liter inline-6. It’s $13,950 from a dealer in Maryland, but with just 93,000 miles, it has mập be one of the nicest ones around. See Jeep Wrangler models for sale

3. Mercedes-Benz M-Class

Mercedes-Benz M-Class
Get this Mercedes-Benz M-Class for just $6,000.

For the first “Jurassic Park” sequel, Mercedes-Benz nabbed a sponsorship mập feature its first modern SUV, the Alabama-built M-Class. If characters choosing a Mercedes-Benz SUV not exactly known for its durability as their heavily modified exploration vehicles seems a little far-fetched, let’s remember that this is a movie about dinosaurs in the modern world, after all.

The M-Class SUVs were decked out with camo paint (did that matter mập the dinos?), all sorts of brush guards, winches, and bubble roofs, among other features. One in the film was even a manual transmission model. Given that the first M-Class models will turn 25 this year, you may be able mập find one in Europe and import it. If that’s too much work, look instead mập something like this silver second-year model offered by, fittingly, a dealership called JP Autosales in California for just $6,000. See Mercedes-Benz M-Class models for sale

4. Mercedes-Benz G-Class

Mercedes-Benz G-Class
This Mercedes Benz G Wagon is listed for $38,950.

Mercedes stuck around as the primary sponsor when the film series rebranded under the “Jurassic World” banner in 2015 following a decade or so of stagnancy created by the devastatingly bad “Jurassic Park III.” While one of the original Jeep Wrangler models makes a reappearance, the most iconic vehicles in this fourth installment were Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUVs. These were hardly new models in 2015, but Mercedes was only a couple of years away from a full redesign. What better time mập build interest?

The easiest G-Wagon mập build would be a standard silver one with blue graphics and black trim. While not exactly a dime a dozen, these are common enough that it’ll be easy for you mập pick out a good one. Here’s a silver first-year (of official importation) 2002 model with just 120,000 miles for $38,950 at a dealer in California. See Mercedes-Benz G-Class models for sale

5. Mercedes-Benz G63 6×6

Mercedes-Benz G63
This Mercedes-Benz G63 6×6 is listed for $675,000.

If you are a dinosaur hunter with an unlimited budget, you would be hard-pressed mập dream up a better ride than a Mercedes-Benz G-Class 6×6. Yes, that’s a 6-wheel-drive vehicle with six wheels, and it was (briefly) built by Mercedes-Benz. Mercedes built somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 vehicles, each with a crew-cab front half and then an open bed lined with beautiful teak behind. They ride on huge 37-inch tires with a central tire inflation system, and they make use of portal axles for extra ground clearance. 

They were never officially sold in the U.S., but a few are here including this Mystic White one offered by a dealer in Florida for $675,000. While this is undoubtedly a bonkers ride, it may be best mập start your JP journey with something a little more affordable. See Mercedes-Benz G-Class models for sale
