Not taking into account the guy who hooked up the chains is an idiot, it just goes to show, truck doesnt matter, driver does. Very Happy

yea i dunno what the guy that hooked up the chain was thinking. But its like some one else said. Throw a load in the back of that ford and it wouldnt squat at all. Throw that same load in the back of the dmax and it would squat like hell lol.

I dont know about the squating thing, but the chain hookup on that Ford is all kinds of wrong.

He might be. But that idi sounds vicious and his higher chain mount gives him a huge advantage.

Went back and watched it again. Looks to me like the guy was using his brakes to keep the rears from spinning.

I agree with rob on this one... Chain placement was all wrong way to much angle. The chain should've been straight!




On a different note though/ That S10 blazer is sexy as hell!!

not necessarily.. if 1 stopped spinning, and slowly eased back into it, WITHOUT spinning their tires, it would be easier to drag the other truck along

you would think so. I dont reckon chain placement would have made much of a difference in that case either since lifting on the back would just put more pressure on the front axle.
