TMNT

TMNT on a Racesource Chassis driven by Aaron Basl

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or TMNT, was a custom body monster truck that ran from 2003-2012 with a multitude of drivers behind the wheel (as the truck was always driven on another's chassis). This truck was discontinued in 2012 when Viacom bought the license. The first chassis was originally Mr. Destruction's chassis.

Trivia

Despite only two variations of TMNT, a red banded (Raphael) and orange banded (Michelangelo) turtle truck, there have been toy versions of all four variations, red, orange, blue (Leonardo), and purple (Donatello), as monster trucks.

Much like Monster Mutt, the truck was notorious for having a small windshield, and as such, a small field of view when driving.

This truck actually never had a chassis. Instead, it ran on the chassis
