Talk about a monster makeover, 7 year-old Aidyn had no idea a bedroom makeover was coming.

His entire room, decked out in monster trucks. Monster Jam and Operation Homefront, a non profit serving military families, made the makeover possible.

Aidyn's dad just got back to the Valley from a 9 month deployment in Iraq. When Monster Jam heard about Aidyn and his family, monster truck driver Ryan Anderson showed up to Aidyn's house to show him his makeover. Anderson drives "Son uva Digger".

His father created the popular truck Grave Digger 35 years ago.

"Driving monster trucks is a lot of fun," said Anderson. "But seeing a family have a good time together - everybody having a blast - there's not much that can compare to that."

Not only did the family get a makeover, they'll be VIP when Monster Jam comes to State Farm stadium this weekend.
