Mega-Raptor Laughs at the Deepest Mud Holes (Video)
Even when it is pulling another mud truck, this wicked F-150 Raptor is unstoppable.
An awesome new mudding video by the Car Warz YouTube channel features an insane Ford F-150 Raptor mud truck showing the bog who’s king. The footage was captured at the Michigan Mud Addicts Spring Bog 2018 and while the conditions of the pit is treacherous, this gigantic Ford truck has no problem cruising through every part of the bog. In fact, even when it is dragging another mud truck behind it, this Raptor is hardly hindered by the sloppy footing.
Sadly, there are no details provided with this video, so we don’t know anything about this Ford F-150 Raptor mud truck, but there are a few things that we can take away simply from watching the footage.
First, while this truck has the body of a first generation Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, it is safe to assume that nothing south of that body came from a Ford factory. This truck might have a Ford frame at the core of that insane, purpose-built chassis setup, but the differentials, the suspension and everything else hanging under the body is from the high performance aftermarket world.
Second, it is the biggest truck in this video and it is likely one of the biggest functional mud trucks in the world. As it rolls through the slop in the video above, take note of the size of the Mega Raptor compared to the other trucks in the pit. Keep in mind, some of those are full-sized Ford trucks with their own big suspension and tire setups, yet the custom F-150 towers over all of them.
Playing in the Mud
The video begins with the Mega Raptor making its way from one side of the pit to the other, slinging mud high into the air before plunging into a deep water hole. Even when this F-150 has water up over its wheels, it is still sits higher than the other trucks in the pit. With charging across the pit being too easy for this big Ford, the driver plays with the throttle, giving the truck time to sink into the sloppy footing, but each time, it pulls to dry land without much effort.
Towards the end of the video, the Raptor is headed right towards the camera and it appears to be struggling. The tires are spinning, flinging all sorts of mud into the air, but it isn’t making any progress at first. However, as those massive tires dig, the truck begins to inch up and out of the mud, slowly working its way to thicker, stickier footing and progress speeds up.
As the Raptor pulls to dry enough land where the driver begins to turn, we can see why it was having such a hard time on this run. There is a Chevrolet pickup being pulled behind the Ford, so in addition to the deep, sloppy footing, the Mega Raptor is able to cross the deepest pit with a second truck in tow.
