Ford Super Duty Dominates a Field of Dodge Trucks: Muddy Monday
First generation Super Duty flatbed out-pulls all comers by a big margin as the driver casually cruises.
This week’s Muddy Monday comes to us from the CarWarz YouTube channel and it features what appears to be a first generation Ford F-350 Super Duty flatbed stomping the competition in a pulling competition. This footage was captured in Ludington, Michigan and these trucks are competing in the street diesel truck class, with a big Ford cruising to victory with PowerStroke power.
Sure, these trucks aren’t as muddy as many of the pickups in many of the videos we feature on Monday, but these big Fords are still doing their thing in the dirt.
The footage above shows a few Ford pickups and a few Dodge Ram heavy duty trucks making a run in a pulling competition. These are legitimate street trucks, one of which is a big Super Duty flatbed dually from the latter portion of the first generation, or at least the front end styling is that of a 2005 through 2007 model. It appears to be an F-350 based on the cab size, and while we don’t know which engine is under the hood, we know that it is either a 6.0- or 7.3-liter PowerStroke.
The competitors include a second generation Super Duty and an assortment of Dodge Ram heavy duty pickups from the first, second and third generation. Each of those trucks is powered by some variety of Cummins Turbo Diesel, so this video is really a PowerStroke-versus-Cummins battle.
Spoiler alert – the PowerStroke wins.
The video begins with the F-350 flatbed going first and on this run, it makes the longest pull of the video. We cannot see the distance markers alongside the track, but if you look at where the truck stops relative to the grandstands, you can see that the flatbed made it quite far. This same truck makes a second run, but it is fairly poor.
Next up is a slightly newer Super Duty that does well, but it falls well-short of the first Ford to run. Following that red Ford is a quartet of Dodge Ram trucks and while each of them put together strong runs, none come close to traveling the distance of the F-350 that goes first in the video.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
