The Jurassic Jeep Project

Since I was a little kid I always loved the Jurassic Park movies and I always wanted a Jurassic Park Jeep. Every Jeep I saw, I looked for those square headlights like the ones from the original motion picture and eventually knew I wanted a 1992 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. When I was 9, I opened a Savings account with my Mom and after that all the extra money I got was put into my account. I mowed lawns, raised and showed sheep, threw hay, and basically looked for any work I could find from anyone who would hire me. My big brother JD and I were always looking through Auto Trader magazines and Facebook Marketplace for a Jeep until one day JD found a 1992 YJ for sale just 45 minutes from where we live. I took cash out of my account and on October 29th, 2021, I bought my Jeep for $1700. It was missing both front axels, the pinion and ring gears for the front differential, and the font drive shaft. There was a little bit of rust on the frame but it was drivable and ran good. A couple weeks later I had the title complete with my name on it.

My name is Olin, I’m 12 years old, and this is my Jurassic Jeep Project.
