Muddy Monday: The Mega Raptor Gets Stuck!

By -

Big truck, big tires, big suspension, and a very shattered ego.

This week’s “Muddy Monday” video features a fully built mud truck named the “Mega Raptor.” As you can see, it has the body of a first generation SVT Raptor right down to the “splash graphics” on the side, but that’s where the similarities end. It has a huge tube chassis, purpose-built suspension, gigantic mud tires, and a very healthy-sounding V8 with headers exiting behind front wheels.

This video starts off as you might expect, with the Mega Raptor making short work of every obstacle at the Back Yard Mud Bog. It glides across the shallow mud and it blasts through the deep water, over and over again. Along the way, this gorgeous Raptor monster truck slings mud and water everywhere – all with the sweet accompaniment of the roaring V8.

About two minutes into the video, the Raptor is joined by a comically small Chevy S10, and the two take turns running back and forth through the bog. However, the Raptor suddenly encounters a bit of trouble in a really deep part of the mud bowl. In fact, we even see a pontoon boat nearby! Did the Raptor think it could drive through the lake?
