It all started with a 1974 Ford F-250. Originally purchased to take on camping trips and for 4-wheeling, Bob Chandler, and his “BIGFOOT”® truck created an entire industry. Performing the first car crush in front of a crowd, BIGFOOT created a legacy that has withstood the test of time. Over the past 46 years there have been many specialty-built vehicles in the world, but nothing quite like “The Original Monster Truck.”
Carrying a pick-up truck body and driving on 66″ tires for many years, the team from Pacific, Missouri, have literally done it all in the world of Monster Trucks. With 7 Hollywood movies to its credit, a visitor to 26 different countries, BIGFOOT is worldwide. With flash photography lighting up stadiums around the world and video equipment rolling, BIGFOOT with Bob and Marilyn Chandler, Jim Kramer and ace drivers like Dan Runte have thrilled millions of fans. Simply put, there is nothing quite like a BIGFOOT moment.
In the world of RC, Monster Trucks have had a tremendous impact. Since the 1980’s, many of the best-selling vehicles have added the monstrous tag to garner attention, and, low and behold, it has worked. As RC monster trucks continue to thrive, body shell options, decal packages and hop-ups are always in high-demand. Screaming new options from Losi with the LMT and the SMT10 from Axial have fueled the need for capable products to withstand monster truck racing and bashing.
JConcepts has teamed up with BIGFOOT 4×4 to offer officially licensed decal sets to go along with branded body shells. The first offering is Summit BIGFOOT 21 which includes all logos associated with the truck in one of the more famous and current trim packages. The included body shell, a 2020 Ford Raptor, is the work of the JConcepts crew always looking to offer the best performing and most accurate presentation on the market.
The Raptor launches quick with its low-slung design, snoopy front-end and detailed representation. The grille area is heavily recessed so the included decals lock into place and high-end looks intimidate anyone at the starting line. Upper louvers, hard-edge hood impressions help create a strong and durable mounting area for the body and matches the 1:1 as a racer.
The cab is Raptor-ized, with center channel, recessed front windshield and side windows to provide rigidity to the area. The extra cab window has an included decal to help boldly display supporting sponsorships. Travel back to the bed area, the pronounced rear fenders make the truck pop, and in addition, the 2020 truck carves out a new detail with another layered body panel for a new edgy feature. The slight bed recess allows plenty of space for body mounting and trim-able space for roll-bars and items found on chassis’ such as the Axial SMT10.
The rear of the fender is recessed for included decals for taillights. The surface representing blank space in the 1:1 world can be left as a subdued tailgate or cut or trimmed to a specific liking. One of the most important parts of any shell are the wheel wells. The JConcepts produced Ford Raptor has larger openings with flares to give clearance accurately and deliberately for large tires like the racing Renegades.
The clear JConcepts body shell includes Ford Raptor decal sheet, BIGFOOT 4×4 decal sheet, window mask, and instruction. The genuine body shell is backed with JConcepts customer support and racing heritage. Whether it is making record jump attempts, ascending new heights, or famed racing championships, Team BIGFOOT is synonymous with success. JConcepts IFMAR World Championship products and BIGFOOT 4×4, a winning combination.
