Going Viral: Monster F-150 Flies Across the Pit and Through the Air

By -

High-riding F-150 builds crazy speed across the shallow mud and has no problem digging in the deep holes.

This awesome video comes to us from the Anything with an Engine YouTube channel and it features a 10th generation Ford F-150 playing in the slop at the South Berlin Mud Ranch. Well, at least the body is that of an F-150 from the 1997 through 2004 model years, as pretty much everything below the sheet metal appears to be from the aftermarket. Fortunately, all of the upgrades allow this pickup to rip across the shallower mud while still handling the deepest parts of the pit without any issue.

Boosted Ego

There are no details on this truck, but we know that the body is that of a 10th generation Ford F-150 and its name is Boosted Ego. As you can see in the video and the screenshot below, this truck has an elaborate suspension system with what appears to be a full tube chassis. We can also hear that it has a very healthy V8 engine, so the combination of the lightweight chassis and the powerful engine makes for one wicked Ford mud truck.

Add in the rear-mounted cooling system and those gigantic mud tires and you have an F-150 that is nearly unstoppable in the pit, but it is also insanely fast. At the same time, unlike some mud trucks that are built for speed, this big Ford can also handle the deepest holes.

The video begins with a close-up look at the Boosted Ego Ford F-150 mud truck, but it quickly leaves the dry grass for a blast through a shallow portion of the bog. At that point, we see the ease with which it scoots across the surface and as the driver circles back into the pit on the far side, the big F-Series once again rips across the surface.

On the next pass through the pit, the F-150 hits a small jump, landing in deep mud and easily cruising away before making another, faster run at a bigger jump. Once again, popping through the air, landing and heading away without a problem, but on this run, the half-ton Ford hits a deep hole. The driver slows down and carefully digs through the deep mud and water, turning in the slop as the F-150 made its way back to shallower land where it once again headed off to the races.

"Before I was old enough to walk, my dad was taking me to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500," says Patrick Rall, a lifetime automotive expert, diehard Dodge fan, and respected auto journalist for over 10 years. "He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when I was young, but by the time I was 16, he was ready to build me my first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. I spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with my dad by my side. While we live in different areas of the country, my dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when I was 16 while I race other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

"Although I went to college for accounting, my time in my dad’s shop growing up allowed me the knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point I worked in the office of a dealership group. While I was working in the accounting world, I continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, I began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

"Ten years ago, I left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and I am living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life," adds Rall, who has clocked in time as an auto mechanic, longtime drag racer and now automotive journalist who contributes to nearly a dozen popular auto websites dedicated to fellow enthusiasts.

"I love covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. I was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with my past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world provides me with a unique perspective of the industry.

"My experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows me to push performance cars to their limit, while my role as a horse stable manager gives me vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

"Being based on Detroit," says Rall, "I never miss the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit's Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.
