Axial Rubicon RC Jeep Build: Part 3

In the first two installments (more on that here and here) of Jp’s Axial SCX10 Jeep Wrangler Axial Rubicon build-up we introduced you to our SCX10 2012 Ready To Run (RTR) R/C Jeep project build. Don't think that we're not a fan of the big boy toys either, we just like having a capable scale rig to play with when our buddies break down on the trail.

The build started off with a few simple upgrades that we made to the truck to improve performance and most important of all, the fun factor of wheeling the ultimate toy. Now that our Axial SCX10 Rubicon Jeep is more capable than ever before, we are going to personalize the Jeep a bit more and continue to upgrade parts to improve the looks and performance of the little Jeep.

Since no Jeep is truly trail ready without a nice coat of paint, we're going to show you how to make your Axial SCX10 Jeep Rubicon look like the ultimate pint-sized trail crawler. The first thing we'll start off with is laying down some custom colors.

Once we had our Axial SCX10 Jeep looking smoother than butter, it was time to add optional parts from Axial Racing as well as a few other goodies from our friends over at Gear Head RC.

Follow along as we show you how to paint the outside of the Axial SCX10 RTR body to add some personality and killer looks. Once we've got that sorted out we'll show you how to bolt on some Gear Head RC Sixer beadlock wheels as well as a Gear Head RC roof rack and even some lights for a possible night run in our Axial Jeep Wrangler's near future.

Keep your eyes peeled as we plan on taking this thing with us to Moab for Easter Jeep Safari 2014!
