Standing at a whopping 12 feet tall and measuring in at nearly 32 feet in length, the monster truck limousine known as the “Sin City Hustler” is undeniably one-of-a-kind. Brad and Jennifer Campbell, former monster truck drivers and current owners of Big Toyz Racing, built the nearly $1 million party truck to offer desert tours in White Hills, Arizona, which is just 45 minutes outside Las Vegas. The 15,000-pound behemoth seats 12 people and holds the distinction as the world’s longest monster truck. Pretty badass, right?
“It’s not everyday you get to build the world’s longest monster truck,” Jennifer Campbell told Barcroft Cars back in August 2016.
“We decided we better go big! If Brad has to do something, he does it bigger and better than everyone else – and so we found this ginormous limo and it all went from there. We took a lot of components from a race truck. We had to create something that was sturdy, reliable and could hold up to the elements.”
With a fiberglass Ford Excursion body, the Sin City Hustler also sports 66-inch wheels and a Ford 8.2L big block engine that churns out around 750 horsepower. As if you needed more proof that this thing was an off-road beast.
Needless to say, it took some time before this bold concept was a finished machine. But, for the Campbells, the ambitious project was worth the wait.
“During the day we offer thrill rides in the monster truck. We go through some canyons over the hills – the ride itself is phenomenal,” Jennifer Campbell said.
“The build itself took 15 months. Brad and our employee Mike did most of the fabrication work and design work – they built the chassis and the roll cage and all of the custom panelling. They did everything by hand for 15 months and, I’m not going to lie, I cried when I saw it come out of the shop. I was so excited.”
Simply put, if ever there was a party truck more suited for Vegas, it’s the Sin City Hustler.
“One of the coolest parts of being on this monster truck is seeing people’s reactions, people are really excited,” Jennifer said.
“They all think the truck is insanely amazing and when you see it in person, it is insane. It makes you speechless. It’s just crazy.”
