Looking for the right Wrangler...

I want to first say "Thank You" for the awesome site; very informative and easy to navigate.

I guess I should preface my post with the statement that 'Jurassic Park' is my favorite movie and that I have always wanted to have my own Park Wrangler.

The Wrangler from the movie is a 1992 Jeep Wrangler Sahara in Sand Biege Low Gloss Metallic, which I don't think I will be able to find specifically. (I'm OK with not having an exact replica.) In order to minimize the turn-around time, my initial research points me toward the following specs:

97-05
Sahara trim (with dual-tone upholstery)
beige soft top
manual transmission
stock rims
full doors
no or small lift

I realize that there are sites that are dedicated to this (jurassicparkjeep.com), but I wanted to see if anyone here has good advice concerning specific model/years that I should look into so that I can get the most miles from my project once I'm completed.
