    So I've only watched the original link video, but I noticed several items of note... the dude's hand moves the steering wheel when the Jeep turns; and the axles look like real axles... the electric motors are hidden (in the engine compartment?).

    Very nice attention to detail!

    They are tenth scale replica's, and often a tenth of the price of a real rig.... Very Happy. How much do you think it would cost to make your cherokee like that one? I think you should do it!

    I would be a lot but hey start small and work my way up. I don't ever plan on getting rid of the XJ just keeping it till its dead or trashed, hopefully that won't be for many many years down the line.
