    You do realize the Ram was in two wheel drive? Lol I get a kick out of this shit. I own a Ram similar to the truck, without the dual stacks of course.

    These are always fun to watch but I hate when people argue over these videos. There are too many variables involved to make this an accurate comparison. It looked like the Rover had 4WD and the Dodge had 2WD anyway and the tires are not the same.

    Call me boring but I would be more impressed with a truck with good MPG these days.

    Yeah I saw a similar video of a puckup truck vs a UTV and the truck lost but again, truck was 2 wheel drive with street tires in the mud and the UTV was 4 wheel drive with big mud tires.

    lol. It's just a fun video. No one is arguing ......... yet!

    Really though, it's just funny how 1st impressions most people might think size wins here.

    Dude, I've always wanted to drive a smart car, or at least try to deadlift one by the bumper.

    They cut the part at the end where the land rover broke down and got dragged by the 2wd ram.

    No fair. They dont show the whole video. I've seen it. The smart car still lost. 1500 lbs vs 3000. Smart car has torque but not like that. Highly modified vs stock I'm sure.
