We were bored last night so I strapped my empty HZJ-75 with turbo and propane to a one tonne Dodge with 1500 lbs of tools and fuel in it's bed and had a tug-o-war.
Too bad I can't attach a video clip to this message, it was hilarious.
Needless to say the Dodge won the tug-o-war, but only when his transfer case would stay in 4wd. It popped out on a couple of occasions and I took him for a short ride.
If it is a slow day today, we are going to put a 1000 lbs in the back of my truck and try it again.
Any wagers?

Believe you are quite correct. Think having no number plate light will cost him a few bucks and a few demerit points,,young guys in a hurry.LOL. We all learn the hard way.

dude, get soem weight in the back or better yet remove the weight from the back of the dodge and go tow him for a couple miles backwards. make sure the elec locker is engaged.
just remember the higher you hook on your rig the more force he is putting down on your back wheels for traction. take your hitch and flip it upside down, inches makes all the difference.
BTW, give me a call i think i have your webasto concerns solved...
cheers (looks like fun)
