What Happened to Gunslinger Monster Truck?

Gunslinger Monster Truck was one of the most popular monster truck shows in the United States. It was created by Randy Moore and debuted in 1987.

The show featured a custom-built, 1-ton Ford pickup truck that was equipped with a four-link suspension and a 600 horsepower engine. The truck had an aggressive look, with its bright yellow paint and large chrome wheels. It had no roof and featured an impressive array of lights, including headlights, tail lights, and even flames shooting out of the exhaust.

Gunslinger Monster Truck quickly became a hit with fans all over the country, who loved its unique style and powerful performance. The show toured extensively throughout the United States for several years, appearing at different fairs and festivals across the country. It even made appearances in Canada and Mexico.

Unfortunately, Gunslinger Monster Truck’s success was short-lived. In 1995, Randy Moore sold his interest in the show to another group of investors who wanted to take it in a different direction.

The new owners changed the look of the truck drastically, replacing the bright yellow paint with black paint and giving it more of a sleek look. They also changed some of the mechanics of the truck, such as adding disc brakes.

The new version of Gunslinger Monster Truck didn’t have nearly as much appeal as its predecessor. Fans were disappointed by the changes that had been made to their beloved monster truck show. The show began to lose popularity as it struggled to keep up with newer monster truck shows that had been created in recent years.

After several years of declining viewership, Gunslinger Monster Truck eventually went off air in 2003. Despite attempts to revive it over the years, the show has yet to make a comeback.
