Going Viral: Monster F-150 Flies Across the Pit and Through the Air
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.
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.
Ego in Motion
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.
Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
