What Happened to Grave Digger Monster Truck?

Grave Digger is one of the most popular and successful Monster Trucks of all time. It was created by Dennis Anderson in 1982 and has been a staple in Monster Truck competitions ever since. The truck has an iconic look, with its bright green and black paint scheme, and its signature “burial mound” design in the bed of the truck. Grave Digger has won numerous Monster Jam World Finals championships, making it one of the most successful Monster Trucks in history.

The Grave Digger truck was originally created out of an old Chevrolet pickup truck that Anderson had bought from a junkyard. He modified it with larger tires and a higher suspension to make it more competitive with other trucks on the circuit. Anderson also added several unique features to his truck, such as the signature “burial mound” design in the bed and the bright green and black paint job.

The truck quickly became popular with fans and helped to revolutionize the sport of monster truck racing.

Over the years, Grave Digger has seen numerous changes and upgrades. It has been driven by various drivers throughout its history, including Anderson himself, Adam Anderson (Dennis’ son), Charlie Pauken, Pablo Huffaker, Randy Brown, Morgan Kane and Jon Zimmer. Grave Digger has also seen multiple body styles over the years; from its original Chevy pickup form to its current Ford F-150 body style.

In recent years, Grave Digger hasn’t seen much success on the Monster Jam circuit. The last time it won a championship was in 2009 when Randy Brown drove it to victory at the Monster Jam World Finals XIX event in Las Vegas. Since then, other monster trucks such as Max-D have taken center stage at Monster Jam events.
