Stompers were first created in 1980 by Schaper Toys and were battery-powered (with only one AA battery). They featured all-wheel, 4x4 drive and one single motor turned both axles. They were the first battery-powered, electric, true 4WD toys. Later, in the United Kingdom, Corgi Toys marketed identical toys in Corgi labeled packaging called Trekkers but made by Schaper. Genuine Stompers were sold by various companies around the globe and were also made by Schaper.

Schaper's 1980 catalog showed five Stomper trucks: the Chevrolet K-10 Scottsdale, Chevrolet Blazer, Dodge Warlock, Ford Bronco, and Jeep Honcho. The Stunt Set and Wild Mountain set playsets were the only other Stompers products in that year's catalog. The earliest Stompers had clips inside the body that attached to the sides of the chassis; they are known as "side-clips." They also came with a set of foam tires. 1981 brought five new Stomper trucks: the Chevrolet LUV, Datsun Li'l Hustler, Jeep Renegade, Subaru BRAT, and Toyota SR5. The Stunt Set and Wild Mountain sets also returned, though different pieces were shown in the 1981 catalog. The short-lived Stomper SSC Super Cycles also debuted in 1981. The trucks were also sold with an additional set of rubber tires so that they could be driven outdoors.

It's a bigger truck I'd say 5-6 inches tall 8-9inches long It's a black Ford pickup called the "desperado puller" I cannot find anything bout this truck online, runs off of c batteries, has high and low gears, forward and reverse and is 4 wheel drive. I was amazed to put batteries in this thing and it roared to life LoL. If anyone knows anything more about this cool little truck please let me know thanks. Any value? I see the jeep version for upwards of 50$ on ebay So Hmmmm......

i have a few stomper trucks and would like to know if they are worth anything. some include a cj renegade, blue killer whale tanker, #2 yellow racecar that says Gasser b/sm2 on it, jeep texas turbo 4x4, a black jeep that just says 4x4 stompers on the front and a dragon on the side with fire on the side and front, a plain green car, black rig (no trailer) that says 4x4 on hood with red and white flames on hood too, and a truck with a "wooden" bed (it's plastic but made to look wooden) red body with white and yellow hood. if you have any info on these i'd greatly appreciate it, and prices too. (some are just the body, i only have a few that have the part where you put the battery in it thats attached to the tires) thanks!!
