The creation of the Jester Monster Jam® truck came out of years of planning and considering different ideas for a new truck, “For as long as we’ve been together, my wife and I always talked about different names and concepts for a Monster Jam truck in the event that we would actually get to build one," said owner Matt Pagliarulo. "In 2010, while out riding our motorcycle, my wife looked at her helmet that pictured a Jester character with a bright and colorful hat and said a Jester-themed monster truck could be pretty interesting. Over the months that followed, we would talk about color schemes and types of characters and whether it should be a funny or scary looking character. At some point, we came up with the idea that if we could incorporate the Jester hat into the design and create a 3D concept that it would be kind of funny. Since historically speaking the Jester has always been a goofy and silly character, what better way could we represent this concept than by putting a huge Jester hat on the top of the truck that would flop around erratically while competing in racing and freestyle competitions?"
