Default Could it be...1/16 RC Jeep?

While not perfect, this just might offer a suitable chassis drive-train to mount a proper body on so we can finally have some rc recon vehicles...just a thought

The ground clearance on those is almost zero and will only drive on a floor or flat surface.

Not so JEEP-like at all.

The Dodge Staff Car is big enough to fit in with the other 1/16, but a 1/18 JEEP is tiny.
