When I was a kid, all monster trucks looked like Bigfoot. It was an awesome truck (I even owned a little Hot Wheels Bigfoot as a kid), but there was a huge need for something new.
Grave Digger’s redesign back in the mid-80’s was revolutionary. Its concept started the current trend of outrageous monster truck designs. Trucks like Bigfoot will always be in demand, but Grave Digger proved that you can have an outside-of-the-box design and still be competitive.
We compiled a list of the ten coolest monster trucks currently on the ‘Monster Jam’ circuit. We think you’ll enjoy all the outrageous and odd designs that are currently attempting to crush every car in its way.

Monster trucks will never go out of style. Kids love to watch all the big trucks smash cars and adults can enjoy the sports atmosphere. It’s a more family-friendly sport (as far as expense and overall enjoyment) than the NFL and NBA right now. You can just sit at home and watch those sports on your couch, but monster trucks are something you need to see in person.
