Its a shame Power Wheels doesn't make Bigfoot anymore, so i've decided to make my own in its recent form.

I'll be using a roughed up Lil F150

This will be the look i'm going for.

I tore it down and fixed some chalky areas with a heat gun and then painted the body white.

I used blue painters tape and drew the design on it and cut it out with an zacto knife

It has some work to be done on it that you can't really see in the pic but this is all paint no decals.

very nice work so far gambler. You always have some of the most creative stuff that looks great when its done. Not to mention you use some of the most beat up vehicles to start with.

I thought about this too, but at the time only had one and it was converted into a ranger racing truck stock height. Big tires and a lift on this would stand out and its easy to upgrade... Gotta love that lil f150. Now I have 2 but I am selling the unmodified one as is...Good luck I want to see this as well. The truck you picked is one of my sons favorite on his moster truck game. i am using another bigfoot paintjob on te bigfoot I have. Seriously

Decided it needed to be lifted up some since it was a monster truck.
I used some electrical boxes on the back axle I believe I saw someone else do that on here before.

Changed out the front axles to some longer quad ones and cut them down to length. Used some plastic tubing on it to lift it up it the front, we'll see how well that works out.

Did you have any of the Quad bushings laying around? Those may work better as spacers. Add a little more support possibly?
