Bootmobile Ready to Stomp the Competition

LL Bean boot 5
Recently, several sources sent us what they thought was an early look at the next-gen Ford Super Duty option package; however, in reality, after seeing the post by Dan Roth over at Autoblog, we now know the real story.

As you may have suspected, this was an advertising gimmick in celebration of L.L. Bean's 100th anniversary, in which an F-250 Super Duty is dressed up to look like the world's largest cold-weather duck hunting boot.

After being unveiled to L.L. Bean employees at the Brunswick, Maine, facility where the boots are made, the wheeled boot tribute headed to Times Square to kick off a nationwide anniversary tour. 

Most important to auto enthusiasts might be what's underneath it all. The underlying truck is a Super Duty Power Stroke with a fiber glass body that stands 13 feet tall. The boot equates to a size 747 – perfect for a 143-foot-tall man.

No intelligent life here. Read on.

It's the Frank and Bob Show

What a surprise, GM loses again.

Yes J-crew I have done the math and the math says ford sells more and for something like 34years. So good excuses, what ever makes you feel better about the second best selling truck line. Fords fall apart hey, well that must be your subjective view. Please post a link to data proving fords fall apart. I could sit here all day saying Chevys fall apart but that's just my opinion, it could be true but with no proof it means nothing. Oh and who said I own a ford anyways?

@Dan the Man,

That was interesting.

Frank - Boy you are so gullible. That video was stupid. The clusters from that Chevy are clearly under recall. She could have them fixed for free if she wasn't so stupid.

johnny doe - Nice video. It just goes to show that the most rootin tootin truck isn't good in the snow. Ford trucks all show and no go.

excuses are like a$$holes everyone has one and they all stink,
GM's and Chevy's engine and tranny's are ok but everything else is junk

@Dan the man,

Kudos!

Crazy stuff!

crazy people these days

Dan - That truck is 10 years old. Old trucks are going to have some problems but who y ou gonna call? Ghostbusters? No! Instead of sitting there making youtube videos out of nothing she should have gotten her butt into the dealer and had it fixed under warranty.

Next time try bringing up something current instead of these tired old issues from 10 years ago that are not even relevant today. I recall Ford had some problems in 2003 and you don't see me here posting videos about it.

that's my point just how reliable are old trucks, that truck did not even have 60,000 miles on it, it was a diesel it wasn't even broken in yet
PS i heard Gm and Chevy had problems with there truck in '03

@Dan the man,

It seems like you got him where it hurts.

Wrong again, Frank. Let me make this clear. Recalls on 10 year old trucks from 10 years ago should not be used against ANY manufacturer on this forum when it is not even on topic nonetheless! This is pure trolling. And if you agree with those tactics that makes you a troll. Frank, you are a troll and ought to be ashamed of yourself. Shouldn't you be working? I have to get back to the dealership. I am out of here!!!!!

Frank, Way to make a nice post about a bootmobile and turn it into a topic on Chevy cluster recalls. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Dan, I don't care how many miles were on it. That issue was covered under warranty and was from 10 years ago!. Try being current.

I have to agree with Bob on this one. What does a 2003 Chevy 2500 guage cluster have to do with a bootmobile? Way to stay on topic.

@Both Bobs,

You both have reading deficiencies. I did not post anything regarding a 10 year old recall.

How about all spark plug spitting comments you make? You both sound like a bunch of babies.

Stop trying to be the victim, we all know you both are the NOTORIOUS TROLLS! There is not one post where you do not bash Ford. The midsize shootout, (Ranger Bashing). You even bash Ford on a Toyota Article. PATHETIC TROLLS!!!

who cares chevy's suck anyway you swing it any way you want, watch the video she said chevy dealer would not cover it under warranty, besides what does current have to do with anything that thing has low miles on it, you bob's always say how great those chevy's truck are, just saying

I must see all this brand bashing (trolling) different than everyone else as brand bashing is in a pickup truck owners DNA and you have the brands to thank for it ex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vb9BrH3Tso&feature=related. I am very sure everybody can post a video of their favorite brand bashing another. I dont have have a problem with brand bshing I just hate when people on here resort to personal attacks or slurs of any kind.

How about all spark plug spitting comments you make?

Frank - If someone made a comment about spark plug spitting, that wasn't me. I do not nor have I ever made any comments about your spark plugs spitting.

I am Real Man Michigan Bob. There are other Bobs and I am not responsible for their message.

If anyone is making comments about Frank's spark plugs spitting, stop it! Stay on topic.

I am Real Man Michigan Bob and I approve of this message.

@Mike go on Chevy's site and watch "The Silverado HD vs The competition" where they do the frame strength test. Enough said! And what kind of guy would brag about something he doesn't own??? Sounds kind of pathetic to me. It would be pointless for you to comment unless you own one or drive one as a company truck.

The professional who are stars in Iris have all perfect their craft. Their dancing and athletic skills are top indentation, and it works wonderfully to paint the storyline of the illustrate.
