WhistlinDiesel's wife lends a helping hand in her husband’s crazy ideas
If you’re an automobile enthusiast, you have probably come across YouTube content creator WhistlinDiesel and his outrageous videos. WhitlinDiesel – whose real name is Cody Detwiler – is known for making YouTube videos where he puts his trucks through crazy “tests” and “experiments” that often end with the vehicles getting wrecked.
Considering that his ingenuity works mostly end up in damage and destruction, one would think that his wife would be opposed to it. But as it turns out, Mrs. WhistlinDiesel likes to take part in her husband’s shenanigans, too.
WhistlinDiesel’s Wife Has Helped Him Destroy a Truck
One such instance would be in the video titled My Wife Destroys My $100,000 Truck with a Crowbar. The YouTuber's wife, known only by her social media handle "Mrs. Whistlindiesel,” did just that—she destroyed Detwiler's $100,000 truck with a crowbar.
The wife seems to be equally enthusiastic about trucks as her husband and has her own YouTube channel called Mrs.Whistlindiesel, where she mostly posts videos about her Ford F-250.
As is mentioned in The Diesel Podcast, the YouTuber married his wife at the young age of 18. She occasionally appears in his videos and social media posts. Not much is known about her, not even her real name, which is surprising because she is quite popular with over 260,000 followers on Instagram and 76,000 subscribers on YouTube. Either way, she seems to be very supportive of what her husband does, and the two live together as a happy couple with abundant trucks to drive and destroy.
In November 2020, Mrs.Whistlindiesel posted an Instagram photo with her husband and what looks like a new Monstermax truck built in the background.
He Has Destroyed a $100,000 Ford F30 Limited & Driven a Truck into the Ocean
The YouTuber has done several crazy acts, but the most startling among them was when he drove his Monstermax, a converted Ford pickup truck, into the Gulf of Mexico. The truck was afloat throughout the stunt, as eight massive tires spun freely in the open water.
Safe to say, the truck cruising in the water got plenty of attention, including some from the coast guard and the local sheriff. The YouTube personality managed to avoid any legal consequences other than a measly $70 fine for not displaying the correct boat number. Yes, the truck was registered as an aquatic vessel.
A still of the video has been uploaded to his Instagram, while the video itself can be found on YouTube. The description for the post reads: ”I will be back with Monstermax 2.0. And I’ll have scuba equipment and proper registration for water, land, and air.”
In early 2020, Detwiler purchased a 2017 Ford F-350 Limited with massive wheels, lush interiors, and a hydraulic lift to destroy it.
In what the YouTuber called “testing,” the pickup truck worth approximately $102,000 was set on fire, smashed with sledgehammers, worn spikes as wheels, dragged through the mud, jumped fences and ripped apart with an excavator.
Additionally, Detwiller has also played tug-of-war with trucks, pitted trucks head-on with one another, installed razor-sharp wheels or 20-feet wheels into vehicles, and more. In his 2020 end-of-year Instagram post, the video creator told his followers that he’d like to do bigger things in 2021, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him jump a truck off a building or something along those lines!
His Videos Always Get Mixed Reactions
Not everybody seems to enjoy Detwiler’s work, and therefore, his videos always get mixed reactions. Some love his videos, while others accuse him of being a spoilt brat. Many are unable to come to terms with why he goes about destroying perfectly good vehicles. The YouTuber seems to love the attention either way, and in many of his videos, he has called out his haters and addressed specific comments made by them.
Recently, the video creator posted a compilation of a bunch of negative comments towards him on Instagram:
Love him or hate him, WhistlinDiesel is doing pretty well with his YouTube videos and has amassed close to 1.7 million subscribers as of January 2020. He seems to have a decent number of sponsors and partnerships and sells merchandise with his branding. His current estimated net worth is close to $1.5 million.
No wonder Mrs.Whistlindiesel is all too happy letting his husband destroy expensive trucks!
