Badass Lifted F-250 Backs into the Water to Drop a Boat
You might assume that this high-riding Ford F-250 doesn’t do any truck work, but this video proves otherwise.
If you saw this modern Ford F-250 Super Duty driving down the street, with its beautifully-painted undercarriage and gigantic wheels, you would likely assume that it probably never gets dirty. After all, it isn’t like these huge wheels were designed for the abuse of driving off-road, and while the modified suspension would likely handle rough surfaces, is someone really going to get a truck this nice dirty?
In most cases, the answer to that question is “no.” But the newer F-250 in the video below shows that not only does it do truck work, but it gets into situations that would ruin a stock truck. As evidenced in the video from the highlifter rzr Instagram account, this high-riding Super Duty is able to back all of the way into a river to drop a boat without any concern of getting water into troublesome places.
Big, Bad Truck
The details on this F-250 are short, but in looking through the other pictures of the truck on the account, we found that this Super Duty is owned by a 17-year-old guy who goes by atvking33 on Instagram. The young owner has done much of the work himself, adding a long list of serious suspension upgrades followed by an elaborate spread of white paint and chrome trim. There is even an array of LEDs that help showcase the undercarriage and it looks great, but it looks like the kind of setup that you wouldn’t want to get dirty.

There is also the huge set of Fuel Offroad wheels that don’t look like the best choice for playing in the mud, as there are lots of little spots for dirty to get caught. Evidently, the owner doesn’t care about that, as he was willing to drop a boat in a river that has no proper ramp, simply by backing the truck all of the way into the water and letting the boat float away.
Dropping the Boat
When the video begins, the F-250 is already backed into the river, with someone from the boat filming the action. The cameraman zooms in to show how much of the tires are sticking up out of the water while also showing that the combination of wheels, tires and lift keeps the body high and dry.
As the video progresses, we can see that the boat is slowly drifting off of the trailer and away from the truck. Once the boat is clear of the trailer, the driver of the big Ford creeps up out of the water without a whole lot of work, leaving no question that even when all lifted-up, America’s most popular pickup can still perform like a proper work truck.
