Jurassic Park YJ :Spotted in Houston Texas

While driving in Houston this weekend a YJ pulled up next to me at a light, with some credits to the original YJ from the Jurassic park movie. Unfortunately I wasn't in my jeep, and the light turned before I could talk to the owner but I was able to snap a quick picture.

Hope you guys enjoy

Thats awesome. If my JK wasn't my dd I would certainly consider doing something like that.

Go for it anyway! What could go wrong? Even better: you could design a jurrasic world logo and use that!

What about one of those graphic skins that companies use to advertise on their vehicles? Probably wouldn't be real cheap but it's not permanent. And then plasti dip the wheels red.

My father in law runs a chrysler dealer and I've been trying to get him to build a "super" Jurassic jk with a lift, bigger tires, armour and what not. He doesn't think it would sell but I'm pretty sure it would be an easy sell right now.

I wonder if you could use "plastidip" to achieve the same look, except able to take it off in the future. Not sure if they even sell Red plastidip, but it may be worth a shot.

Someone on WF did it but said the red fades really fast.

I've never actually used plastidip but that would be a much better way than the magnetic sticker stuff for the red part at least.

It's getting more and more temping. Maybe I'll fire up photoshop tomorrow and see how it would look.

Actually for Jurassic World the whole scheme has gone kinda Batman so red would no longer be needed. Not as awesome though

I like that. I drive all over Houston and have never seen it before. I see he has it opened up, this Texas heat is no joke. They say it was 97 today, the temp in my truck read 102
