Monster Mutt is a custom bodied monster truck driven by Cynthia Gauthier, but has had many drivers over its career. It has competed in every Monster Jam World Finals since 2003 and even got the championship in 2010 under Charlie Pauken. In 2017, Cynthia started driving the truck for the European Tour. Prior to it's 2016 re-design, the truck was notorious among drivers for having a small windshield and, a smaller field of vision.

It is unknown who will drive the truck after the Argentina show in 2018 as then driver, Cynthia Gauthier, moves back to her full time ride, Monster Mutt Dalmatian. Monster Mutt is also currently not lined up for anymore events after Argentina signaling a possible retirement. However, due to the truck being a signature and a fan favorite, it is highly unlikely and is rumored to recieve another new driver.

Trivia

  • The truck spawned from the combination of two cancelled trucks, being the dog theme of Beware of the Junkyard Dog, and the supposed Mercury body of Hulk in 2003. The original bottom clip where the latter's teeth would have been set in (where the tongue is) can be seen in images of the truck at its debut show.
  • The truck has attempted a backflip at Monster Jam World Finals' 13, 16, 17 and 19 and still hasn't completed a successful one to this date.
  • The truck has been driven at least once by approximately 30 drivers throughout the truck's career.
