The Axial SCX10 III "Jeep JLU Wrangler" RTR 4WD Rock Crawler is equipped with a 3rd channel dig setup out of the box! This lets you lock the rear axle from the transmitter for front wheel drive and a tighter turning radius. As an alternative, you can set up the vehicle with a two-speed transmission instead and select between high and low speeds. If you'd like to use both the two-speed transmission and DIG function, just add another servo and a radio with at least four channels (such as the 5-channel Spektrum DX5).

The SCX10 III Jeep JLU Wrangler uses portal axles to improve performance by increasing the ground clearance and reducing torque twist. Its standard battery tray accepts full-size "standard" LiPo or NiMH packs. There's space on the side rails as well for drivers who prefer smaller packs. Inner fenders and floor sides hide internal components that would usually be visible from the side of the chassis.

The chassis is topped off with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited four-door body that includes a roll cage, front hood vents and cowl, windshield wipers, mirrors, door handles and other molded-in details, plus a detailed interior and LED lighting. New taller and wider, officially licensed Nitto Trail Grappler tires on 3-piece beadlock wheels add more scale realism and more grip on dirt, rocks, and all other off-road trails.

With the Spektrum DX3 radio's exclusive DSMR technology, you'll enjoy the superior range, response, and interference resistance of exclusive DSMR technology. Together with the installed Firma Smart 40A ESC/receiver, it also offers the advantages of exclusive Spektrum Smart technology. Install a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery and you can view vehicle battery capacity at a glance on the DX3 transmitter's voltage level indicator. Outfit the DX3 with the optional BT2000 Bluetooth module and download the free Spektrum Dashboard app to your smart device, and you're also ready to use Smart real-time telemetry — without needing on-board sensors or modules.

Axial SCX10 III "Jeep JLU Wrangler" RTR 4WD Rock Crawler (Grey)
This is my first RC in about 25 years. The last one a played with the battery only lasted 15 minutes with a 3 hour charge time. RC have changed a lot and for the better.. I bought the SCX 10 iii as my first 1/10th scale rock crawler and I am in love. I haven't even had it for a month and have up graded the rims (Treal) and tires ( pit bull :growlers) I also added a roof rack with 4 led's It looks amazing. My wife said you always wanted a Jeep and now you can trick it out all you want... I get tool pack set to day to tie on my roof rack made of real metal and working standing jack.. This is the best hobby around for ME today. Get out in the fresh air and have fun for hours before my battery wears down.. GOOD LUCK RC ADVENTUIRES... RCSparks from you tube helps me out a lot on reviews and repairs upgrades everything you need to know about RC.. Aaron is a great guy!!

Axial SCX10 III "Jeep JLU Wrangler" RTR 4WD Rock Crawler (Grey)
Added this truck to my fleet of crawlers and quickly put it right to work. Found the transmission very noisy, producing a "clicking" type sound when moving forward or reverse. Watched a few videos on the subject on youtube and ended up tearing the trans apart no less than three times. It's an overly complicated unit and despite my best efforts, I could only reduce the noise, not eliminate it. Noises aside, the truck runs perfectly. Stock tires are even decent for out of the box. The body is a pain to take on and off, as the body pins are hidden. Comes with a very nice Spectrum radio system with an available battery monitor. Comes equipped with the "dig" installed which is rather useless for my purposes. I found very little need for it in my rock crawling, and only used it to say I did! Also has a 2 speed trans, which you would need to "activate" with another micro servo and channel on your radio. All in all, nice truck with a couple flaws, but very capable still. Portals make this rig very good at traversing uneven obstacles, and give it added ground clearance. Glad I bought this truck on sale! For $400, I'm happy.

Amazing truck it's tackled and succeeded everything that I've thrown at this truck so far what a choice piece of kit for an rtr axial well done I'm impressed and you have my thumbs-up on this 1. Has mean suspenion travel before a topple stock tyres are awesome plenty of stickyness for the focus and all and more than enuf crawling power with just 7.4v 5800 mah battery. The dig function is pretty cool to helped me on points a few time already and thanks to amain for the sale cheers team

Absolutely love it so far , straight out the box threw in a charged battery and had zero issues at all , haven’t used the dig feature at all since I’ve read that it causes problems so I’d rather just not use it but other than that it’s an amazing rtr rig , body is super detailed and has lots of quality parts on it in my opinion

Axial SCX10 III "Jeep JLU Wrangler" RTR 4WD Rock Crawler (Grey)
Absolutely the most fun I’ve ever had with my clothes on. If you’re in the market for a fantastic crawler then look no further. This only my third RC 4 wheeler and I can’t be more pleased. I was a hardcore real to life Moab, BFE, and Rubicon trail runner before health issues. With just a little imagination and a little pile of rocks it’s as close to the real thing as you can get. The Spektrum three channel transmitter is as good as it gets. Just read the description for all the insane goodies. Don’t pay any attention to the “expert reviewers” opinion. IMO Axial makes the best ground RC’s on the planet. Their engineering is superb and the details are incredible. I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for and this purchase once again proves that point. What? To much money? Go get some cheap crap. Luckily your never know what you’d be missing.

Great RTR crawler. The included transmitter is pretty nice as well. Put new wheels and tires (proline Hyrax) along with some front portal covers and it climbs like a champ. Make sure to double check the limits on the dig servo as it can easily burn out. Ask me how I know. :/ When your dig is working it's a great feature that will let you make some moves others can't. The combo ESC receiver is full featured and programed well out of the box but with a tuning card can be set to your liking.

Buy it... Seriously, this is hands down the best "out of the box" RTR out there. Axial did their homework, and it shows. Stock motor & servo are both surprisingly great. The new Firna 40esc is smooth and reliable. Honestly, aside from one missing beadlock screw, there is NOTHING I could find wrong with the kit. I have owned a whole hobby shops worth of crawlers, and this thing is hands down the BEST I have seen.

Pretty sweet. Coming from a trx4 (handed that one down to my son) I can say I like this one just as much. I didn't run the stock tires or electronics but the suspension and dig transmission are both great. Need more time to test durability but for now it gets 5 stars.

Lets get this started right, Amain Hobbies is a great company. I ordered The SCX 10 iii from them. The Axial product is getting cheaper and cheaper, the quality is going down hill. The brand new right out of the box SCX 10 iii was broken. Amain Hobbies replaced the broken parts at no charge. This was amazing. They could have told me to contact Axial, but they sent me brand new parts for something they had no control over. So Amain Hopbbies gets an A++. Axial needs to get their crap together.

Fast shipping, truck came, good quality just like axial does. The next day took the 10iii out crawling and it performed just as good as my 10ii I have around $2,000 in to. The only thing is the dig got stuck out on the trail and I had to disconnect it and adjust it by hand. But other than that it performs great. Very happy with the purchase. Next is the Capra.

My first rock crawler. I read about many crawlers before settling on this one. One thing that made this a must was that I own a life size Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon in the same color. This thing is so much fun to drive around the yard which is mainly rocks. I have upgraded the bumpers and added an antenna. Highly recommend this truck if you do not want to build yourself.

I am new to the hobby. This is my first axial product and purchasing from Amain Hobbies.

Truck looks great out of the box. I love the detailed body. Front to back, door handles, side mirrors, to the lights. Has all metal links,metal servo horn a plus, even comes with beadlock wheels.

Before purchasing I contacted customer service with order and tax concerns, staff was great answering my issues and with prompt replies. Delivery was on time. Placed the order on Sat, package received Tues. Overall experience 5 stars. Amain will be my go to for my RC needs. Will recommend to family and friends.

Edit:
Had a chance to take this out today, have a couple of issues. Left turns, the right tire rubs against the shocks (stock tires), ESC/Receiver combo does not allow 7.4, I mounted heavier wheels and tires, I started hearing a clicking noise and lost of torque. Not sure if was the transmission. $500 price tag stick with Traxxas. 2 stars off!
