The Jeep is it!
Aside from being one of the most iconic vehicles ever, it is a culture.
If you have been in club or even witness driving down the road and noticed much like bikers, the Jeep Wrangler drivers throw a wave up each time the pass another Jeeper.
You see…..my problem is that I was a proud member of this club for 10 years! I loved it. I wanted to be in the club since I was young. The temptation was extremely strong to pick one up when I was stationed in Virginia Beach, but I choose the conservative route and waited until I discharged out and got done with college. With 10 days of receiving my college degree, I jumped in! I was glorious. I put 160K miles on that Jeep. I am not exaggerating when I say that I cried the day I traded it in. (The family had grown now to include 2 children).
The new ride…….a Jeep Cherokee. NOT THE SAME!
I have missed that Jeep every day of my life since I traded it in. Why does that vehicle stand out over the trucks, cars, and SUV’s that I have driven since? Because it was a Jeep and I got bit by the Jeep bug when I was a kid.
The Jeep Life and culture is a phenomenon. You can find Jeep Clubs all around North America. As one of the top selling vehicles in the US, its loyal following are diehard enthusiast.
When it came time to prepare a vehicle for the 2019 SEMA Show, it only seemed fitting that it be a Jeep. Since we are a bed liner company, it only seemed fitting that the entire Jeep would be bed liner in Scorpion. The undertaking of this project was large and we relied on many great partners to bring it to life. The end product was a one of kind Jeep Wrangler that turns heads every time it drives down the road.
I could take the simple path and just say that Jeeps look like a badass, radical ride!
Invincible and indestructible. They can take you anywhere. There is a reason why this vehicle has origins in helping the US Army Troops during WWII. Obviously, they have come a long way since then, but that would only seem natural.
I miss my Wrangler everyday and will one day again join the “Jeep Wave” club. Until then, I will keep my eyes on all the jeeps that pass through Scorpion’s doorways.
