Muddy Monday: F-150 Mega Mudder
A wicked Ford F-150 mega mud truck shows the competition who’s the sheriff in town.
This week’s “Muddy Monday” video features a tenth generation Ford F-150, which has been transformed into a monster mud truck. We don’t have any details on this monster, but it is pretty clear that there aren’t many components on this truck which would have come from the factory.
