Default Monster Truck

Hi, just wanted to show how you can buy an old used kart off craigslist and make it cool ride. I found this truck and cleaned it up, painted, new tires, and a few custom options for my son Sam.


Start to finish photos

just upoad the video to youtube and post the link that has the word "watch" in the URL. the first link that youtube gives you won't embed here. simply click the link youtube provides you when you're done uploading your video, and when the page loads you will see that the URL at the top of the screen has the word "watch" in it. copy and past that complete URL in a message here - and your video will work perfectly for all to see!
