From The Axial RC Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon SCX10 Manufacturers website:
Axial has joined forces with the most recognized name in off-roading – Jeep®. The SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon was designed to resemble its full sized “scale/1:1” counterpart. We really did our research with this vehicle by building a full scale version for testing, research and development. We wanted to make sure you’d get the best built SCX10, right out of the box.
OCTOBER 9th – 12th, 2012 – THE AXIAL RUBICON TREK
Recently, the Axial SCX10 completed an incredible trek by successfully traversing one of the most recognized off-road trails in the world – The Rubicon Trail. Starting at Loon Lake, the Axial SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon made it’s way along the Rubicon Trail until it finally reached it’s destination, three days later, at the Homewood staging area. And by traveling approximately fifteen miles through some of the Rubicon Trail’s harshest spots like Gatekeeper, Walker Hill, Lil Sluice, Soup Bowl and Cadillac Hill, the SCX10 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon earned the coveted Jeep® brand Trail Rated® badge. Just like their full-scale counterparts, the SCX10 had to earn this badge. And what better way to do it than on the very trail Jeep® uses as a proving ground for their vehicles.

Axial RC Jeep Wrangler Reviews #1
My first crawler and am very pleased. Takes time and patience to get the body just right but is quite rewarding with the scale look and great performance! This is my second Axial vehicle and in general I really like the scx10!

However, the disadvantage that I found with this kit is that the body can be difficult to work with, especially getting the hard top to match up to the windshield, where I discovered some inaccuracies in the manual. When assembling mine, I followed the instructions and ended up with a gap between the windshield and the hard top. To see what I mean, look at page 41 (step 61) of the instruction manual. It clearly shows the front of the hard top trimmed down, without leaving a tab or “overhang” to be tucked under the windshield. Assembling the body in this way (according to the instructions) will leave you with a gap between the windshield and the hard top. However, there is an excellent blog on Axial’s website with detailed tricks and tips on how to assemble the body. Google this and you will find it “Body Tech – 2012 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon Kit”. Now, if you look at the pictures in that blog, it shows a tab being left on the hard top to be tucked underneath the windshield. If only I had seen the blog and known to follow it rather than the instructions!
Here is another minor inaccuracy in the manual…on page 39 (step 58), the instructions clearly indicate that a hole should be drilled in the molded stud (which looks exactly the same as the drilling points on the Wraith body). However, on the blog posting that I mentioned above, it says “The hole should fall right between the molded studs in the windshield frame”. Now this may seem like a minor discrepancy, and to be fair, it is very minor, but the effect of following the included instructions in this case is that your windshield will sit too high (or low) creating unsightly gaps. Consult the blog for your assembly instructions; it is much more accurate.
Like the Wraith build that I did a while back, the manual does have inaccuracies if you want to nit-pick. Maybe Axial should proofread those things a little better before publication or update them with revision numbers once they get feedback from users…

I got this kit to work on with my 10 year old. Lots of small parts. This is a great way to spend countless enjoyable hrs with your kid. This requires additional parts to run. It is a great way to learn about electronics print reading, dexterity skills and mechanics. There are hundreds of YouTube videos on this vehicle. Many different styles of bodies are available you can get lots of scale working components like winches tow hitches led light bars etc. Etc. This is a great product! For adults and children if you have the time to spend with them.

This is a great kit! So much fun to fully assemble the kit and know how your truck works right from the start. I built this as a father/son project with my 10 year old and the instructions were clear enough for him to assemble major components like the axles by himself with very limited help from me.
The aftermarket support for upgrades/customization is amazing, but this is a very sturdy capable rig as is right from the box. Now that it is complete we have a blast with it. My son can’t wait for school to be over so he can drive it and try and conquer the next obstacle.
To complete the kit you will need to purchase a servo, motor, esc, and of course radio gear. We are running a Hitec HS-5656WP servo, Castle 10 Amp BEC, Tekin 35T Brushed motor, Castle Sidewinder 3 esc, and traxxas radio gear. I couldn’t be happier with this kit. My only problem is that now my 6 year old wants to buy and build one for him!

Great base for RC, Be aware this does not come ready to run, you will need, a battery, charger, motor, servo, transmitter, receiver and an esc. But it gives you free reign to install whatever parts may fit your build. It is a jeep replica of 07-present(14) wrangler jk. If you are looking for one that is ready to run, look at the poison spyder edition. Great product from axial.
