Firestone Wilderness appeared in MTM2 as a replacement truck for Bigfoot Power Wheels.
Since 1991, Team Bigfoot has been using Firestone tires exclusively on its fleet of monster trucks. “The Firestone shield denotes 100 plus years of quality and value in the tire business,” says Jim Kramer, Vice President of Operations for Bigfoot 4X4, Inc. “We are proud to display it on the new Firestone Bigfoot truck.”
In addition to running on Firestone brand tires since 1991, Team Bigfoot has used Firestone-themed monster truck bodies, starting with the introduction of the Firestone Wilderness™ Bigfoot truck in 1997.
Aside from the Firestone Bigfoot race vehicle, Bigfoot also maintains a dedicated Firestone Bigfoot display truck that visits Firestone’s retail stores and dealers throughout the year to promote the Bigfoot/Firestone relationship. In 2006 alone, the Bigfoot fleet logged 378 display days at Firestone retail locations.
