But usually if your hooking up your front hooks its only to clear someone of a hazard (not like your towing them around town) and its only short bursts at short distances
If I recall, Ram had (maybe still is running) a commecial where a '10 1500 is pulling a tree stump out of the ground with its front tow hooks using a chain bridle set-up. Hopefully the real world lives up to the commercial!!
In any case I liked the commercial. I think it ran in the summer/early fall.
