Custom JeepZilla from Brenda Sumner [Reader’s Ride]

West Jordan, UT must be the perfect environment for Brenda Sumner’s custom JeepZilla.  She started with a MattZilla RC Works chassis, to which she added RC4x4 Performance stainless links, Kyosho Red Velvet shocks, Team KNK stainless hardware and OttSix VooDoo tires mounted on MotoWorx wheels. The driveline consists of a Tekin Pro4 3300 motor with a Castle MMP controller putting power through a Robinson Racing HD transmission and overdrive/underdrive HD gears. Vanquish diff covers and Axial universals finish things off. A Savox 1283 servo handles steering. Covering it all is a New Bright Jeep body done up by Mike Rowe. We love the diamond plate and little touches like the roll-bar padding, the detailed seats and even a Utah license plate.
