Eight-Wheeled Ford Truck Shows Up a Chevy: Muddy Monday

By -

One Chevy has to pull another out of the mud, but this monstrous Ford cruises through the deep mud.

This week’s Muddy Monday video comes to us from the Rockwell Offroad YouTube channel and it features a wicked eight-wheeled Ford pickup show several Chevy trucks how to play in the mud. While this video focuses mostly on Chevrolet mud trucks, be patient, as the big F-Series at the end of the video is well worth the wait. This is especially true after watching a handful of GM trucks struggle as a group.

Chevy Troubles

The video begins with Chevrolet Silverado making its way across the bog of the Mud Truck Madness Offroad Park in Louisiana. The truck has serious suspension and chassis upgrades, making plenty of room for the huge tires while a healthy-sounding V8 provides the power. The Silverado enters the mud with the engine roaring and the tires spinning, slinging mud into the air as the big truck makes its way through the pit.

Stuck Chevy

However, as it gets to a section with some aquatic foliage sticking up out of the mud, the Chevy begins to struggle and it eventually comes to rest. The driver tries to back out, but that just digs the truck in deeper. It is stuck, so a friend in another, wildly colored Chevrolet comes in to help. That truck quickly gives up, so we can only figure that it couldn’t get enough traction to pull the other GM product out of the mud.

Finally, a Chevy Suburban comes over and pulls the stuck Silverado to dry land.

Ford Time

The video ends with a huge Ford attacking the same portion of the pit, but this truck is clearly built for domination in the pit. This truck has eight wheels, four on each axle with a slightly smaller tire on the outside of each combo.

As it effortlessly digs through the mud and plants, we can see that this F-Series beast also has rear-wheel steering, allowing the driver to carefully select his line through the pit.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
