That is only a two wheel drive dodge, bring your landy down here and I'll demolish it, mine is 4x4 and with 800lbs of torque and over 400 hp and weighing in at three and a half ton the landy doesn't stand a chance,

Quite true but I reckon a Landy would have trouble moving three and a half ton as a dead weight. Use to be mixed up a little with a company called. B& H services in Basingstoke. Used to convert and alter land rovers. I've been round this block more than once. I would say the transfer box would go first. I'm willing to put my truck behind a Landy for a bit of fun. The dodge there was two wheel drive and almost certainly auto and no slipper diff of any kind. Again it's not all about power but using a properly equipped tool that was design to pull a forty foot camping trailer

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...
