I'm convinced Landrovers, GoPros and IPhones are all made by the same company.

its nothing at all to do with power - the ram should win hands down. its all about traction - the vehicle that loses traction first loses. put a ton of sand on the back of the ram and its wheels will stick to the road and pull like a train.

What I meant is that they're all great products but perhaps not the best in each category. Thanks to very clever marketing, however, they attract a convinced and loyal following who, if you own a Landcruiser, HDR or Galaxy S4 you kind of feel sorry for.

You can add Evinrude/Suzuki to that list dude.

Oh yeah, and Rat owners/Cat owners

Pfffff!

My 110 once towed a Landcruiser c/w a cattle box full of bullocks in a similar situation (steeper hill). It mostly comes down to skill - he hadn't a notion

New Ram 3500 with the Cummins is rated to tow 30,000 lbs. That's a big rib...
