Ford Super Duty Conquers the Pit at All Speeds: Muddy Monday
Super Duty is a purpose-built mud machine, with aftermarket components from top to bottom.
This week’s Muddy Monday video comes to us from the AnythingWithAnEngine YouTube channel and it features a Ford Super Duty mud truck romping around the pit of the Country Boys Mud Bog 2018 Spring Opener in Marion, Michigan. This truck is clearly built specifically for serious mudding and in the video, the driver shows off his Ford’s abilities by crossing the mud at varying rates. It can skim across the surface or dig deep and slow, never really breaking a sweat.
There are no details on this truck, but we can tell by its appearance that it is a first generation Ford Super Duty, or at least it has the body of an F-250 or F-350 from 1999 through 2007. It obviously has an elaborate suspension system to make room for the huge tires and to keep the chassis up out of the mud. Speaking of the chassis, it appears as though the frame has been shortened significantly, with a tube setup connecting the rear differential, rear suspension and what is left of the bed.
Finally, we can tell from the sound of the engine that whatever is under the hood of this Super Duty is as modified as the rest of this truck, making it one monstrous mud machine.
Making It Look Easy
This video contains about two minutes of mudding fun, with the Super Duty attacking different parts of the pit from different angles and different speeds. In some videos, trucks will almost storm across the mud, as when they go slowly, they get stuck. On the other hand, this truck can fly across the mud at speed, but it can also creep through the thickest depths without any problem.
Even when the driver hits a deep part with a tractor waiting to help, slowing down and turning the Super Duty back towards the center of the bog, the big Ford barely bats an eyelash at the challenge.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
