Guy Thrashes on $102K Ford Super Duty F-350 with Any Level Lift
Kid Aims to Destroys Own Truck, Blames Others
WhistlinDiesel is up to no good, and we're not surprised. While cruising YouTube to escape the daily grind, we couldn't resist the latest from this fun-lovin' destructo who, in this series, makes a mockery of materialism to the delight—and disgust—of his 650,000 YouTube subscribers by thrashing on his $102,000 Ford Super Duty F-350 equipped with an Any Level Lift and tons of other mods.
The series of four videos (so far) details the purchase of a new-ish big 'ol lifted Ford Super Duty F-350 Limited Power Stroke diesel truck "for testing purposes." It's done up SEMA-style, with giant wheels and a massive lift. As the former editor of 8-Lug HD Truck, I have a soft spot for these polarizing, ostentatious trucks that are—despite all the hate they get—actually really popular.
Quite frankly, we were hooked at the first video's headline: I Bought a $102,000 AnyLevel F-350 for Testing Purposes. It has 28-inch wheels, an Any Level Lift hydraulic suspension setup, a done-up interior, and some moderate mods under the hood consisting of more air and more fuel (the standard protocol). It's the poster child truck for a SEMA truck. And yes, these trucks really can be that expensive. First, it's a top-of-the-line Limited Super Duty. Next, the lift can be $20K for the parts alone; wheels and tires can go for another $15K. Add to the mix all the other mods.
After he purchases the Super Duty, we get to jump aboard for the road trip home. We experience the highs and lows (get it?) of hittin' switches, mashin' the throttle, and towering over other full-size HD trucks. As any modified truck owner can sympathize with, we experience the kinks that come with customizing a truck—dead batteries, leaking fuel, busted hoses, popping U-joints, etc. It's funny but true—and no one wants to show you that side.
Big, lifted trucks are often spat on for being trailer queens, show-only, and essentially useless as trucks. They drive off and on trailers, get paraded around for photo shoots, get their driveshaft(s) detailed, and then get stored away for eternity.
Not this time. Basically, this trucks gets thrashed; the nastier the video comments get, the more destruction he promises. And since anonymous YouTube users generally delight themselves in voicing that which is negative, judgmental, and mean, there's a good chance we're going to see $100,000-plus go up in flames. The current video series ends with the wheels on fire; we don't know where the story goes from there just yet.
Bring on the sneers, snickers, and huffs as this kid plays with trucks and "ruins" his own stuff for your entertainment. Although most of us can't afford to, it's oddly refreshing to see someone loosen his grip on his own money, despite how much it might "degrade humanity"—according to the bitterest of viewers.
Enjoy the videos!
