yep not like for like 90 is 4x4 (that) ram is 2wd 90 wins every time.
try the same trick with half a tonne of stuff over the drive axle of the ram
or a 4x4 variant and the result will be somewhat different.

Ram is 2wd and look at the axle hop on the 90, surprised the distinctive 'pop' of a diff or halfshaft wasn't heard

This was all about traction, if the Dodge had more weight in the rear it would have won.

That was painful to watch... amazed nothing broke on the 90.

Really wish we had the option for a proper diesel like cummins in our defenders.
