From the seller: “This Monster Truck is the Real Deal and can take passengers!!
In 2013, TNT 4×4 Shop in Long Island decided to beef up their ‘shop truck’ and make it more than just a vehicle for spectators. They took their first-generation Chevrolet Silverado and its 6.0 Vortec V8 and got it high. By which, we mean a full lifted chassis, many, many shock absorbers, braked differentials, 66-inch tyres and as you can see, a bed-mounted roll cage enveloping eight bucket seats. It was built to take passengers out.
The truck did the rounds for a short time on home soil before being packed into a container in 2014 to be sent to the UK. Here, the truck was re-named ‘Mayhem’ and has been doing the rounds at shows and events ever since. Crushing cars, making noise, the whole shebang. It’s not a fire-spitting competition truck, but it’s not trying to be. Instead, it’s built to be reliable (important for all the events) and fun. And boy, is it fun. As we touched on earlier, this isn’t a competition truck. As such, when you climb up a set of stepladders to get inside it’s all very… normal. In fact, it’s pretty much a stock Chevrolet Silverado here. Cloth seats, which are in decent enough condition. Full dash, decent condition headliner, carpets, there’s even a stereo and working air-conditioning! It’s a very civil place to be. Everything seems to work as it should, bar the speedometer.When you’re at an event, shuttling people about on thrill rides, it’s a very nice place to be. The only significant addition is that of a yellow toggle box which operates the four-wheel steering, allowing the truck to get around tight bends or ‘crab’ as it drives along. There is also a passenger footwell mounted braking control and remote Engine Cut off for added safety.
The truck itself is from the early 2000s, so it’s had some life. The lower sections of the door cards have been replaced with checker plate aluminium, there’s the odd mark here and there. It’s a working truck, not a concourse show car. ”
