    Really??? You can't tell that it was a semi being pulled up the hill with the dash cam in the windshield? The OP already stated that it was him being pulled up the hill.

    Hey DG what is your empty weight with those things? If I had to guess I would say in the neighborhood of 45-50k. I know with my truck and the 4 axle chaparral I am just a touch over 40k but then my truck weighs in at 27k by itself.

    Ok, well I guess that was a strong truck. Not sure what your location was but it sure looked like you needed some chains that day.

    Hey as another said, sometimes its not the truck doing the work, its just getting that little bit of extra oomph. Had an F-150 pull me out of a ditch on Friday. After I slid into off their driveway covered in ice.
     
    Dye Guardian and G13Tomcat Thank this.
