    Ya, I seen that earlier when I was searching ebay for "monster truck" and thought the same thing. They put a lot of time and money into it and then use little axles? :confused:

    Thats what I searched. I do that once a week and look for pieces of crap to submit to Scary Steering. I've found and submitted quite a few just by searching "Monster Truck". What is really scary is that it really seems that 1/2 the stupid or ugly trucks are from PA... What is with my state? I need to get out of here.

    I showed some kids at school Scary Steering today, more than one they were like "what is wrong with that I think its cool"

    Yep, that's what I do every so often also. It's amazing too how many people have a "monster truck" with a 4" lift and 33's, or sometimes even a stock superduty is a "monster truck" :haha: :haha: :haha: You can find a lot of 1 ton D44's that way too. :rotfl:

    I don't think the steering is scary at all. Not perfect but based on looks alone its not scary.

    eh if it were me, trussed 14 bolt out back and trussed 60 up front. Air it out a little. But then I'd also replace the airbags with nitrogen shocks :)

    Am I the only one to notice that the t/c is a divorced 203, and that the axles are Ford Big Bronco parts?

    I would have used chain and sprockets. I doubt it gets street driven much.

    That truck probably never sees anything but the trailer and the truck show. I highly doubt he would need much more than a d44/9 in. to drive up that steep incline into the trailer.
