When is a monster truck not really a monster truck at all? Well, looking past the fact that we don't know of any competition-ready monster trucks that actually have such trucky items as a working pickup bed or even a passenger seat, perhaps the answer is when it's made from a Polaris RZR.
A company called High Lifter has created a monster RZR using as many stock Polaris parts as possible. According to the company, that includes the frame (buried inside a bunch of custom tubing), body, seats and steering wheel. Our understanding is that power comes from a 640-horsepower GM small block mated to a Powerglide automatic transmission.
We've added three videos for you to watch (click here), where you'll see the monster RZR put through a short series of preliminary tests. As you'll see, the beast is a little bit tippy, and the team has since added sway bars. Which is good, because the bigger they are... well, you know the rest.
