SilverFire is on a distinguished road
Default 2WD vs 4WD

Well, today I got to test out my new receiver. Very nice 3 ball with a hook on the end. (Thing weighs a ton)

Driving down the road, saw a truck stuck in the mud, and naturally I stopped. Apparently, the driver had someone try to merge with his truck, and he jerked it off the road.

His natural response was to kick it into 4L, and try to get himself out. Problem is, his truck is a SWB single cab Chevy, the ones that sit absurdly low.

So, me being the nice Dodge owner I am, I offer to help him out. He tries a few more times, then accepts my offer. Hook up the snatch strap, set up, and pull.

First pull got him partway out of the holes he dug, second on took him right out.

Dodge-1
Chevy-0

So, we talked for a while, he looked all through my truck, and said this:

"I guess I'm trading this in for a Dodge."

I did tell him about the forums, so hopefully he'll go get a Dodge and join us.

Maybe I should have taught him about how to drive in the mud?

Those Chevy guys hate being behind a Dodge , especially when it's being rendered a service . Another low-life being helped .

Well, this guy was impressed with my 05, and was actually serious about getting a Dodge. He was also very nice. (For once)

This right here is the reason why you don't see hooks on the front of most.
We don't need'em! No matter how hard you play, a Ram will always, grin and bare it, and then limp it's way home to play another day.

I had a guy in an almost new GMC admire my truck a while back. He looked it all over and said he was going to trade for a Ram. I told him be sure to get it with the Hemi .

Good job helping out like that. I took a 30ft two strap with us to the beach just for that reason.
