I would love to get a 4x4 rc truck, but I already have 4 airplanes and a helicopter. I think a truck would be a lot of fun in the winter when it is too cold and rainy to fly. Although helicopters can be fun inside too. A co-worker built a t-maxx by buying all the parts separate at places like ebay and said it came out quite a bit cheaper.

Like jeep I had an E-maxx I had it pimped out too. I put on extended swing arms aftermarket alum oil shocks it had alum bumper and full alum skid plates. 4 bodies 8 sets of batteries and 2 chargers. I had upgraded the servos and got bigger motors. I had well over $1k in that thing when I sold it for $700......

I have an old savage .25 that I put a wasp .28 in. I agree with above posts, not a cheap hobby. Lol I'm looking to get rid of mine though since it just sits and collects dust now day.
