This is my entry for Phil's monster truck contest. It's a yellow monster styled similar to the pickups of the 70's . I made sure to include plenty of details so check it out! Please comment!
About this creation
Back view. Notice the roll cage bars.
Side view. I'll explain the weird gap behind the cab later...
If you lift the roll bars you can see the large, mid-mounted, V8 engine. This is generic of most moster trucks.
The reason there's a weird gap between the cab and bed is because I mounted the cab and roll bar holding brick on jumper plates. This is because I need the roll bars far back enough to clear the motor without mounting the brick all the way at the back. Sorry, that may sound a little confusing to some people...
A shot of the real working suspension.
If I'm allowed to, I would like to throw in a second entry. You may remember this as my "Treat of the Week" a while back. It's a monsterized version of my Off-Road Concept. I actually like this one better than the yellow truck...a lot better!
You think you build a 4 wide monster?! check out mine, when I post!!! But your is really cool, I like it; on mine, I do the suspensions, & 4 driving wheels, it's not coming from a special set, like your! ;D

What lego set is the chassis from?
Hey Dylan, freund, you won't believe what I did with my entry. Quote Apple Pie, I "Overkilled" it... It has huge rims, it's available in 2 colors, and it's going to be called "Iron Goliath". Impressive, eh? ;) Ps. Nah just kidding, It's not impressive.
You can have more than one entry!? Hahahaha, nice!! I've got mine, but it's not posted yet... It's a mix between a pickup on dubs and a monster truck! And it's not a color you'd think it was... Wait and see... Ps. I love your entry.
Great work my friend! really you are a very great 4wide builder!! and guys you are just too fast!!! i'm still working on my contest MOC!! and almost all of you are just done!! may be tomorrow i'll post mine... good luck every one >>> peace.. fofo
