Ford Welding Rigs Roll Out in Amazing Video
Texas-based videographer points the camera at a trio of welding rigs, including a pair of red and white Ford F-350s.
Out in the oil fields of Alberta, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas, there are those whose jobs are to keep the oil flowing from the field to the refinery. Armed with the heaviest duty trucks around, with only their skill and a full welding rig in the bed, these pipeline welders can go nearly anywhere to repair or build any given pipeline.
From this fraternity of oil is the truck subculture of welding rigs, whose owners pour their hard-earned money into customizing their work trucks. Texas-based videographer Salinas Photography travels around the country capturing the most amazing truck builds around, including the American dekotora of welding rigs. Check out Salinas Photography’s full video featuring these amazing trucks right here.
In this video, Salinas Photography captures not one, not two, but three welding rigs in the earliest stages of customization, including a pair of 2018 Ford F-350 Super Duty dually pickups. One is a red Platinum, one a white King Ranch, and both have the FX4 package. As the videographer explains in the video’s description, “there isn’t many very many WORKING welding rigs out there, here’s THREE of them all in one video!”
The two Fords roll through town and cruise the highways on 26-inch American Force Wheels wrapped in 37-inch Fury tires, each truck riding high and level with a 2.5-inch lift. And of course, we can’t forget the big diesel power of the 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V8s laying down 450 horses and 935 lb-ft of torque to the pavement.
And of course, we can’t forget the big Lincoln Electric SAE-300 MP welders mounted in the bed. Without the star of the show, these trucks would only be for show and go. Instead, the Ford welding rigs are ready to keep America’s energy production flowing as free as the Stars and Stripes on a windy summer day. Thanks to Salinas Photography’s amazing video work, we can all feel as close to these flashy work trucks at 60 frames per second as we would in real life. One comment in the video’s comment section says it best: “WOW!!! You killed it man and those trucks are badass*.”
