Learned something new

Today I learned something new about my truck....

A 2003 2wd Ram with slick tires and some mild mods CAN NOT and I repeat CAN NOT pull a 22K lb semi truck out of your neighbors yard. I did manage to move it about a foot though.

Lesson learned....now on to the next learning experience.....

Lol yah think little better traction and it would likely have done enough to get her moved

22,000#, hunh? Musta been empty. Yeah, I tried that once with my '88 Chevy (2.73 rear end). The semi was stuck in some soggy ground - I couldn't even budge it from dry pavement. Oh, well - I tried.
