In 1997, Avenger was created with a hot rod in mind, and S-10 body. There was only one person capable of handling its violent nature - Jim Koehler. The body was updated in 2002 to become a '57 Bel Air. As part of "Team Scream", Jim and Avenger have been to every Monster Jam World Finals. Jim acknowledges the fans in helping him make it to the Monster Jam World Finals because Avenger was often voted “Fan Favorite.” Avenger has two Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship (2003, 2011).
In 2017, the team celebrated its 20th anniversary by abandoning the '57 Chevy look to go with a Chevy pick-up body. The truck started life as an S-10 and Team Scream figured this would be an appropriate tribute. Each year in the recent past, Avenger has had a body change unveiled at Monster Jam World Finals during the Pit Party.
