This is a tech forum so try to bring "tech" into it or you will get bashed.

I'm not a mud guy but the truck looks like it does a damn good job at what it was built for.

and, is this grandpa kind of ....Grumpy ?

looks like it would do good on the trails too. It isn't too high and is geared correctly. Now twin turbo that sucker and make it really fast.

It was back in the 80's. It was a local truck and everyone around was a fan of it. It sits rotting now. I still remember when it beat bigfoot on tv the one time. Those where the days.

yep, the owner is a pretty old guy now, but he did have some success running the truck. Back then all the monster truck had regular old truck frames and leaf springs with a butt load of shocks. Most of them were full steel bodies too.

Anyways, cool truck you have there, and good luck with it.

Truck looks real good, seems to hook nice as well. Sound pretty good but sounds like it is shifting a little quick into 2nd and not getting the full revs?

Though your intent IS to get flamed here, (See link), your truck is badass. I wish I had a rig like that when I was your age.
