Ford Truck Owners Rush to the Rescue After Hurricane Harvey (Video)

By -

Risking their own lives and pricey machinery, these lifted Ford truck owners become the living definition of local heroes.

The aftermath of Hurrican Harvey is in many ways a greater shock to the nation than the day the natural disaster actually struck. As water levels slowly drop, and folks are able to communicate and share their experiences, it’s evident that greater part of the Texas coast will remain disabled for a long time to come. Thankfully, incredible human beings, many of them Ford truck owners are ready to risk it all to save their fellow neighbors.

These videos posted to the Facebook page of the famous Rednecks with Paychecks Off-Roadshow the bravery of many off-road enthusiasts hitting the flooded streets of Houston and other towns to rescue stranded people. In several cases, these victims have been immobile since last weekend due to roads being underwater, and their vehicles disabled due to flooding.

We at Ford Truck Enthusiasts focused on the several Ford behemoths carrying supplies and people to and from the most affected areas. But, in reality, this isn’t a time to differentiate between Ford, Chevy, Ram and even Jeep owners — it’s a time to appreciate what these brave souls are willing to do with their time and equipment.

One of the uploaded videos features a group of truck owners towing an active military truck which became stuck while performing a rescue mission. Talk about not only saving people in need, but saving the folks who are actually out there trying to save people.

Enjoy these videos, and if you get a chance make sure to show the guys some support for their selfless deeds.

Stay safe, folks!
