About This File

Background:

  • Grave Digger 12 was the 14th variant of the Grave Digger monster truck (counting the red panel and blue/silver grain truck).
  • It was built in 1996 in Kill Devil Hills, NC at Digger's Dungeon. It had a much longer wheelbase than any other Grave Digger, setting it apart from the 8 other short-based (3 were not actual monster trucks) Grave Diggers.
  • It was driven by Dennis Anderson all through 1996 to 1999, and with it, he won the USHRA Championship in 1999.
  • With the introduction of the Grave Digger 7 rebuild in 2000, Grave Digger 12 was passed down to Gary Porter, while Dennis campaigned in Digger 7, with which he won the first World Finals Freestyle Championship.
  • Gary Porter ran this Digger until 2010. The final show was in Wildwood, New Jersey.
  • Shortly after, the chassis was revived and ran as Grave Digger the Legend, driven by the late Tony Farrell (rest in peace). After this event, the chassis was officially retired and has never seen another show since.

Requested by @Skyliner849, I figured "Well this will be interesting." This is the only Digger I'll have under my belt for a while, as me and most other people are getting tired of seeing Diggers all over SYP.

The truck isn't 100% accurate, but I'd say it's a fair 95%. The only major flaws I'd see are the dashboard and the shocks. And trust me, the paint looks better in game than in the thumbnails.

THIS HAS BEEN TESTED IN 0.37 AND 0.4 TO BE STANDALONE.
