Giant Ford F-350 Does Giant Donuts
F-350 dually is built to outwork the competition, but it also does some righteous burnouts.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ Tuesday video comes to us from the Db Smitherines YouTube channel and it features a first generation Ford F-350 Super Duty showing that it’s more than just a work horse. Sporting a Crew Cab layout with the longer cargo box and dual rear wheels, this is the biggest one-ton truck from Ford during this era while the PowerStroke diesel engine under the hood made it the strongest.
If you wanted a new Ford in the early 2000s that could tow and haul the most, this was the truck that you bought, but as we see in the video above, this massive torque monster can do more than just work. It can do burnouts like a performance car.
Unfortunately, there are no details on this Ford F-350, but based on the headlight design, we know that it is from the earlier portion of the first generation Super Duty. This truck is a 1999 through 2004 model, meaning that it could have been offered with one of two PowerStroke diesel engines, but we don’t know which one. From 1999 through 2003, the Super Duty was powered by a 7.3-liter mill with either 235 or 250 horsepower and either 500 or 525 lb-ft of torque, depending on the model year. In late 2003 and in 2004, Ford moved to a then-new 6.0-liter PowerStroke that delivered 325 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, but in any case, this truck doesn’t look or sound stock.
As the burnout begins, the driver brings up the engine speed and as a result, thick, black soot pours from the exhaust and as the tires begin to spin, the diesel engine roars. A stock F-350 from this era wouldn’t make so much soot or sound so healthy in stock form, so the odds are very good that this truck has been modified.
During the course of this video, the Ford F-350 pulls into a tight intersection and begins doing donuts. Smoke pours from all four rear tires as the driver tosses the back end around a few times before pulling the truck straight and blasting past the camera.
