While it seems like every kid grew up with the insatiable longing to own a car, I very quickly came to realize that driving isn’t for everyone; not for me at least. Something about its demand for absolute concentration and precision doesn’t quite work with my over-active imagination.
However, where regular cars fall short, remote controlled cars seems to provide a more whimsical and experimental side to car ownership. They are pretty much little pieces of plastic magic that help us live out our wildest fantasies.
Remote controlled cars are quite alright, but all the categories of RC cars available, however, remote controlled jeeps provide a subtle reminder that RC driving and racing is no mere novelty. They also represent the painstaking amounts of effort put into making these pieces of machinery a reality – and as close a replica to their larger size inspiration.
If you’re looking to indulge in a little virtual fun for yourself or purchase one for your little one; here are a few choices you should consider – because let’s face it; what is a man without his toys?
#1 Pro-Line 332100 1992 Jeep Cherokee (Great Choice)
The Pro-line ’92 Cherokee for sale is a small-scale representation of the famous Jeep; complete with that unique jeep Cherokee look that sets it apart, the 332100 a small scale attempt at capturing the overall quintessence of the Cherokee that comes highly sought after by RC classic car enthusiasts.
One look at it, and you will have to wonder if the manufacturer didn’t model the jeep with the mental laundry list you make when in search of an RC jeep.
Name: Proline 3321001992 Jeep Cherokee
Dimensions: 11 x 5.9 x 30.2 inches
Weight: 11.2 ounces

The Jeep Cherokee is made with GE verified to be clear and genuine and comes fully equipped with detailing on the head lights, the grill as well as the body. The bodies of the Cherokee do not come painted, and the photographs are for advertising purposes only – but they are sold in clear Lexan, and when you do paint the car, you can easily rip off the over-spray film on a whim.
With the 3321001992 however, if you want to mount an Axial you might have to use a body post but considering that your clear body comes accompanied by a decal and window masking set each, it shouldn’t be a deal breaker.
- Comes with one set for decal and window masking.
- The design is detailed and a true Cherokee representation.
- Designed with GE that was originally made for crawlers.
- If you want to mount an Axial, you might have to use a body post.
#2. Kids 12V Electric Ride On Jeep Truck
One look at this number had me wondering if somebody forgot that they were designing a children Jeep. I mean, kids are already quite easily impressed, so this rear drive motor that comes with a gearbox and remote steering will certainly blow them out of the water.
Think about it – 14-inch tires and a suspension that is an all-wheel arrangement, should set your little RC driver on a path to luxury, what better choice would there be for making the occasional commute up and down your driveway anyway?
Name: Kids 12V Electric Ride On Jeep Truck
Dimensions: 47 x 30 x 31 inches
Weight: 52 pounds
Recommended Age: 24 months – 5years
All its features are quite impressive no doubt, but the SD card connectivity feature is a personal favorite. The ride on the toy doesn’t end there. However, it also comes complete with 3 forward speed options and fully functioning LED lights. A few more features, and a perhaps inches, and this would be a wonderful off-road concept that you can hop into to escape the travails of civilization. A great addition to any Jeep would be the leading RC truck for any adults or kids.
- The remote is perfect for children who can’t reach the pedals.
- SD connectivity feature means that the kids can enjoy some tunes; improving its realistic quality.
- The vehicle makes sudden stops. Braking abruptly can launch the child into the dashboard if you don’t remember to strap them in tightly.
#3 Axial SCX10 2012 Jeep Wrangler (Big Kids)
Something about the Axial SCX10 2012 Jeep Wrangler for sale feels like it could tackle a few rocks, if not mountains – survive a hurricane and still make it to a nice dinner while waltzing through an apocalypse in great shape.
Between its beautifully molded body, complete with Polycarbonate and axles, the SCX10 seems to be capable of handling a much longer lifetime of pressure than its full-sized counterparts.

It’s easy to see how joining forces with the most recognized name in off-roading paid off to produce this four-wheel drive masterpiece. You have to admit that its features make the fact that it has non-included battery requirements a permissible flaw. Purchasing 4 AA Batteries, a battery pack and compatible battery charger is no hassle for the well deserving piece of delightful machinery, especially considering the generous addition of a, 2.4 GHz radio system and digital steering servo.

Right off the bat, I’ll say that the 333600 Wrangler dims in the light of the 338000 Wrangler, but the 333600 makes up for this with its unlimited Rubicon body. In addition to its rough exterior, this thing can not only take quite a beating but is a beast on wheels
- Highly detailed exterior features.
- Twilight lenses are detachable.
- Rubicon styled body.
- Remember to buy some screws to attach the bumpers. Otherwise, you won’t have one.
#6 RC Jeep by Awaytoy Crawler (Best for the Dirt)
This RC Jeep by Awaytoy didn’t just make our list because it is a 1:22 full-scale RC that comes with 2.4GH radio technology or because of its maximum speed of up to 30km/h. Sure, it is all quite impressive but wasn’t what caught our attention. We could tell you about its Hi-Q rubber wheel or politely brag about its independent shockproof system that prevents damages caused by vibration – or its 100M control range or even the LED lights. But we don’t care so much about all that, what we love about this pick is that it is black!
Name: RC Jeep By AwayToy
Dimensions: 11.2 x 10.4 x 6.6 inches
Weight: 2.2 Pounds
Recommended –Age: 8 years and up
I know; the color black is a guilty pleasure of mine. And at one point or the other everyone dreams of owning a sleek piece of machinery like this, and at a price that will not bore a hole through anyone’s pocket, you can gift your 8-year-old (or yourself) this tiny bit of black magic – you deserve it!
- High-Q rubber wheel.
- Full metal gear parts.
- Explosion-proof shell.
- Independent shockproof system.
- The car speed is as high as 32Mph; not that it’s a bad thing – but you’ll need to monitor underage users.
#7 Orlandoo OH35A01 Kit Hunter
The Kit hunter is a sleek representation of all that you’d probably wish your Jeep was. The OH35A01 is a full-scale crawler kit that comes fully equipped with features and quite enough axle articulation to make the Hunter quite the entertaining performer.

Dimensions: 12.6 x 5.7 x 6.6 inches
Weight: 2.2 Pounds
Recommended –Age: 3 years and up
The Kit Hunter includes its OH35A01 Kit with unpainted plastic Wrangler Rubicon body. But to complete the assembly, you may need a transmitter and receiver, accompanying AA batteries and plastic model paint for the body – that should serve you up a good use of your imagination. But remember not to assemble without professional guidance.
- Fully detailed exterior.
- Axle articulation.
- You need a transmitter and receiver to complete the assembly, along with AA batteries.
- Maybe hard to assemble without professional help.
#8 New Bright RC Jeep Wrangler Truck (Great Value)

Not much is known about these Jeep Wranglers except that at a 1 pound weight, you can expect them to hop and fly their way through incredibly tumultuous terrain with ease. And if you don’t have anything in the neighborhood of 50grand to spare for the real deal – this is probably your best available alternative.

Quite often, we are plunged into luxury with tiny pieces of paradise that technology provides.

In the meanwhile, however…we’ll take what we get.
