Monstrous Ford Truck Cruises Through the Slop: Muddy Monday Presented by Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003 Tire

By -

Headed forwards or backwards in tire-gripping mud, this high-riding F-Series Ford truck has no problem crossing the bog.

Today’s “Muddy Monday” video comes to us from the Car Warz YouTube channel and it features a ninth generation Ford truck playing in the slop at the 2018 Lutterloh’s Opening Spring Mud Bog. There are many videos from this year’s event as well as from similar muddy showcases at this particular mud bog, but few trucks handle this tire-gripping mud as well as this high-riding Ford.

F-Series Ford Truck: Back in Black

Unfortunately, there are no details on this Ford truck, but we can tell simply by looking at it that this is a ninth generation F-Series pickup and it looks like it is of the F-250 or F-350 variety. This truck was from the final generation of the F-Series where the F-150, F-250 and F-350 were all part of the same model. When this generation ended in 1996, the following model year would introduce the Super Duty as its own model, independent of the F-150.

History aside, this massive Ford truck obviously has an extensive list of upgrades, most notably in the areas of suspension and chassis work. Of course, those upgrades make room for the gigantic tires that play an equally-large role in making this truck such an incredible mud machine.

Also, it looks and sounds as though this big Ford is powered by some variety of diesel engine that exhausts up through the big stacks in the bed. The ninth generation of the F-Series had two 7.3-liter diesel engines – one from International Harvester that was discontinued in 1994 and the replacement, the first Power Stroke. However, when you consider the level of modifications made to this truck, it could have just about anything under the hood.

Battling the Bog

In the three-minute video above, this badass, unstoppable Ford truck repeatedly makes short work of the deep mud bog. The driver takes different lanes through the mud each time in search of a true challenge, but even when he attacks the deep mud and water in reverse, the truck hardly breaks a sweat.

Ford Cruises Past Dodge

In the final moments of the video, the big Ford storms around a Dodge Durango that appears to be stuck, showing the advantages of a properly-built mud truck and a daily driver with mud tires.
