The GTA Online weekly update for June 29 to July 6 is here, and the arrival of the halfway point in the year (oh no) can only mean one thing. That’s right, the Fourth of July is upon us, so Grand Theft Auto 5 is celebrating Independence Day in the United States the best way it can: with a free monster truck for the chaotic multiplayer game. While we await fresh news on the GTA 6 release date, at least we can celebrate the land of the free and the home of the brave in style.

That’s right, you can grab yourself a free Vapid Liberator monster truck just for logging into GTA Online this week. This is only available during the annual Independence Day celebrations, so don’t miss out! To match its stars-and-stripes theme, you’ll also get four freedom-flavored ways to dress up your Mobile Operations Center: Eagle Claw, Eagle Claw Flag, Fighting Freedom, and The Stars and Stripes.

This week’s GTA Online podium car is the Vapid Dominator GTX, saving you on its $725,000 asking price if you’re lucky enough to roll big on the Diamond Casino’s prize wheel. Alternatively, you can snag the GTA Online prize ride, which this week is the Grotti Cheetah Classic (typically priced at $865,000), for finishing in the top three in Pursuit Series races for just two days in a row.

Elsewhere, a Finders Keepers dynamic event lets you quickly resupply your business by hijacking unfortunate delivery vehicles, and completing business battles will net you a selection of party-ready beer hats and a Statue of Happiness t-shirt. The San Andreas Mercenaries event continues to run, with bonuses up for grabs for completing various missions – check out the full list below for all the details.
