As this infographic illustrates, everything on a monster truck is monster-sized. Huge shock absorbers require a stronger suspension than on standard-sized trucks, and their engines are tooled to put out up to 850 horsepower. Forged metal wheels are much tougher and more durable than their cast wheel counterparts, and these gargantuan beauties need a lightweight chassis. All that requires a lot of high-quality metal with superb manufacturing processes to produce it. Learn more below:
