Default 2001 dodge ram 1500 vs 2008 nissan armada

I recently got into a debate with a co-worker who's truck would beat who's in a tug of war.

tale of the tape.

Me: 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2L heavy duty 4wd

Him: 2008 Nissan armada LE with 4wd and towing package.

Keep in mind that the conversation turned to money and we now have $2000 on the table.

Just wanting to get the opinion of my fellow DR owners.

don't take my advise but i think the nissan will win it has a bigger motor and is alot newer also it has a 9,000+ towing capacity while your truck has like 7,500

Tug of wars have little to do with power, but more with weight and grip. If you've got more weight and better tires than him, I'd say you got it.

I recomend you get some sand bags before you tie up! There's videos all over the internet of this out pulling that and vise versa.
Weight, grip, gearing there are so many variables it's hard to tell. I can only hope you drag him around!

I vote for the Nissan...Armadas are retarded massive and have less power which equals less tire smoke

Just throw a bunch of weight in the bed and you throw her in 4LO and you'll be good to go. Even though I would not recommend tug of wars since they are really pointless and its basically whoever gets the best grip. No way in hell would I ever bet $2000 on something like that.
