Jeep known as escorpion

I got my jeep back in November for $1300. It was completely stock with 150,000 miles.

It was owned by a Spanish dude that had all the typical stuff on it. It had escorpion banner on the windshield. A scorpion on the front fender painted on. All the ugly chrome I couldn't stand.

Next mod I got all the chrome replaced with the black parts from quadratec, and removed the stickers. Looked good with 29.5s tires

Took the flares off and found a lot of rust. So that started the next phase. Got a new tub that was red as well for $200.

Took a good week of waiting for replacement parts and fixing until I had the jeep up and running again. The rear frame from the crossmember back had horrible rust. I went to the junkyard and got the section cut for 100 with the new tank it had.

Went wheeling with a lifted wk, and my brother in his yj. Here my jeep has 33s on just a 1" body lift. Can't flex much cause the rear will hit the body.

Tires look awesome. I always wanted a 1992 to make it look like the jeep off Jurassic park.

did you see Jurassic world? The jeep made an appearance again. It was pretty sweet. But same thing I wanted to that too. I had the same wheels. And I could have just painted it
