This is a great movie vehicle to replicate for a few reasons, not the least of which is that it's comparatively cheap! A few of us here have JP Jeeps (mine is JP18), but I think the best thing to do is ask specific questions that we can help with.

My first suggestion would be to join www.jpmotorpool.com

There is an absolute wealth of information there already posted that you could browse through. Good luck! Looking forward to seeing your build. (y)

well, i need help finding finding the Sahara parts, like the fog lights,the seats, center console, and the half doors.

Do you have a base Jeep that you're converting already? Sadly, a lot of these rusted out long ago, so what I ended up having to do was buy a Jeep that was in good physical shape as well as a Sahara that was rotting away that I could pull parts from. I got my entire interior from the donor vehicle and then put all the parts I swapped out from my good Jeep into the donor and sold it.

The half doors I found on Kijiji (Canadian Craigslist). My Jeep still doesn't have the fog lights.

My recommendation would be to start with the big stuff, you can add the smaller detail stuff later as you go. Some of it is difficult to find and in the end if you're missing fog lights it doesn't really affect the overall look.

If you haven't got a Jeep yet you'll save yourself a lot of headache by just finding a good condition Sahara and paying the bit extra for it. Looking back I wish I had done that.
