You could probably build something like that on your own by using LED pucks and creating the gobos yourself.
Just pick up a set of under-counter lights, print out the Jeep logo in the proper size (it needs to be really small to stay focused at a distance) and trace that onto some sheet copper, then use a Dremel tool to cut it out.
Stick the copper plate over the light and you'll have a nice projected logo. You may have to create a ring to hold the logo plate a little further from the light source to get best clarity. Even better if it screws on so you can use it as a way to focus the image.
We do this same thing in TV all the time, though we use lights that contain a slot designed for inserting gobos along with a knob to focus it to the correct distance.
