Bear Foot is a monster truck currently owned by Paul Shafer. It was originally built by Jack Wilman and Fred Shafer (no relation to Paul) and, along with Bigfoot and USA-1 was one of the first monster trucks. It won the 1990, 1992, and 1993 USHRA Camel Mud and Monsters championships. Originally a Chevrolet, it became a Dodge in 1992 as a result of a factory sponsorship which lasted until 1997. Shortly thereafter, the truck was sold and Fred retired from the sport at the age of 50.

The truck was, for a long time, the primary rival of Bigfoot, and their meetings were heavily promoted.Fact|date=December 2007 Today, the truck runs largely for Paul Shafer's own promotion.

In April 2008, Fred Shafer was inducted into the Official Monster Truck Hall of Fame. [http://www.monstertruckmuseum.com ]

In 1985, the truck appeared in the music video for ZZ Top's single "Sleeping Bag," as well as appearing along with the smaller "Lil' Bear Foot" on an episode of Knight Rider.
