Ok I was having a little fun Most of the questions on here are about a half ton pulling a car trailer with a tractor. This always causes heart problems about how unsafe it is.
I thought it was interesting that clearly the truck GVRW was exceeded.
As for physics the equipment being towed does not transfer any weight to the truck. So why would the back of the truck be lower before the pull, and the tire showing load?
I would like to see the truck weighed before.
Like any farmer if you can hook a truck to it,anything would be attempted including pulling a house.
I agree that a 4x4 in low can pull, in fact in the right conditions can easily outpull a 130hp farm tractor.
If you are going to make an exception to law, I would of liked to see a Chevy or Ford do it and not some junk from across the pond (I dont care where it is made, it says TOY on the grill)
Why could I now hook up a 20,000lb trailer to a s10 chevy to save weight?

That much not be much of a tractor. Any 130 hp tractor could easily drag a 4x4 dually or anything else around. Josh
