Jurassic Truck Corporation
The Jurassic Truck Corporation manufactures the T-Rex to be used in conjunction with '73-'91 Chevy Suburban framerails. The basic kit comes preassembled and ready to bolt on to a GM chassis at a cost of $14,995. Included in the package is a manufacturer's certificate of origin, a complete assembly video, and a full set of pattern templates to ease the cutting and drilling that is required to mate the body to the frame and relocate the engine. Also included in the T-Rex basic kit is a complete interior package (seats, dashboard, and instruments), a 40-gallon fuel cell, a six-point rollcage, a steering assembly, a fiberglass nose section that is steel-reinforced for strength, exterior lighting and reflectors, a wiring harness, front and rear bumpers, shifter mechanisms, a parking-brake assembly, a throttle-assembly package, a convertible-top assembly, crossmembers, a transfer-case adapter, and other miscellaneous components necessary to complete the conversion.
The body is made from 16-gauge cold-rolled sheetmetal and is shipped assembled but unpainted. All of the hinges, latches, and other attachment hardware are made of stainless steel. According to the company, the body can be mounted to the chassis in just a few hours. The majority of time is usually spent refurbishing and upgrading your GM chassis components and preparing a suitable engine and drivetrain. Virtually any GM engine, transmission, and transfer case can be used to complete the T-Rex.
