    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 :doh:

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

    ^this^ it is a ridiculous thing to do.
    unless you have a fetish for fixing smashed drive-trains.

    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.
