When is a monster truck not really a monster truck at all? Well, looking past the fact that we don't know of any competition-ready monster trucks that actually have such trucky items as a working pickup bed or even a passenger seat, perhaps the answer is when it's made from a Polaris RZR.

A company called High Lifter has created a monster RZR using as many stock Polaris parts as possible. According to the company, that includes the frame (buried inside a bunch of custom tubing), body, seats and steering wheel. Our understanding is that power comes from a 640-horsepower GM small block mated to a Powerglide automatic transmission.

We've added three videos for you to watch below, where you'll see the monster RZR put through a short series of preliminary tests. As you'll see, the beast is a little bit tippy, and the team has since added sway bars. Which is good, because the bigger they are... well, you know the rest.

      What is useless about this? If you live in the country this is awesome. In reality most of the cars on the road are somewhat useless. If we only made, or purchased vehicles based on usefulness we would all drive minivans and Prius. Because what’s the use of owning a sports car in the city? Don’t hate on this guy because he’s got money and likes to have fun.

        I agree Jared, too many people get hateful towards other peoples decisions of what they do with their money. They need to be worried about how their government is spending our taxes!!

        "What is useless about this?" If if can't be used on the road, then it's useless. Not everybody wants or needs a glorified mud toy.

          Not everybody wants or needs a 600+ horsepower Mustang either (which, as I recall, is also not street legal with the track key). That does not make it useless by any definition of the word I'm familiar with.

      Smart. Looks about as stable as a drunk leaning back on a bar stool... Hillbillies and their pointless toys.

      Well, I'm sure this beast will be at the High Lifter Mud Nationals in Jacksonville, TX this year, and I'm sure it was built primarily for use in the mud. I've attended that event a few times for my day job in the off-road world, and this thing would fit in very well. The event is crazy, and to understand this RZR, I think one would have to visit the Mud Nationals to fully comprehend the "why" aspect. Perhaps the question is more like "why not?"

      Stability and rollover issues? Haven't heard of it. A rockin' good time with a case of beer, a 12-gauge and some buckshots, and some wildlife? You betcha'.

        And their sister in a thong by their side. Providing the driver (and brother) a hand job. YEEEEE HAAAAAAWWW! The south will flip over violently again!
