Jurassic Park movie car clone! 1997 Explorer XLT, former Grassroots Motorsports vehicle, with 1st Gen Explorer nose retrofitted for movie car accuracy. Get free guaranteed entry and mag coverage in the GRM $2014 Challenge! Tow your leMons car with it, electric brake controller and Class III hitch already installed. $500 truck, $4500 safety/spares

The 4.0 V6 runs great and does not use any oil even when racing. The trans shifts perfectly with no slippage or leaks. It needs a radio, but I have an AM/FM/CD to go with it. 4 wheel disc brakes. 4 BRAND NEW 235/75/15 tires mounted today (ZERO miles!), nearly brand new matching spare. All new ball joints, upper control arms, front shocks, good brakes with severe duty pads. Brand new $300 Grizzly brush guard, one of the last remaining new old stock guards in the country (they were discontinued long ago). All new off-road lights, all wired and working. New HD Moroso kill switch, full professional 1.75x.120 DOM cage, choice of seats, new camlock harness. I also have a passenger seat to bolt in as well as a seatbelt. Power windows all work (had the fronts fixed). Rear tailgate struts are good, lots of storage space back there. I can also inlcude a complete Explorer 5 speed conversion if you want to go manual. Paint isn't show quality but looks REALLY good for a LeMons car, proper automotive paint w/hardener was sprayed with a HVLP gun, can be sanded/waxed etc. Touch up paint included, all three colors.

If you want a cool tow vehicle instead of a race truck, I will remove the cage and safety equipment, reverting this truck to stock, and you can have it for $4k. Or, go win Class C with it at the next LeMons race. Can be made to handle easily, lower it and stiffen it, and put better tires on it for the track. The truck never missed a beat all weekend at NJMP and wound up beating 55 other race cars, despite lots of driver changes and explicit instructions for everyone to parade lap it and not race it. This thing really turns heads! It was a fan favorite all weekend, and has had multiple articles written about it already:

As always, I need the money for the next LeMons build. And the creditors. And to re-up my Ramen Noodle stash so I can eat this week. Oh, and I should probably pay the mortgage at some point... :D
