mmmmm A 4,000 pound JK thinks it's pulling what 40,000 pound semi? and on an icy surface at that?

Kind of reminds me of the Budweiser commercial with the young Kleidsdale thinking it's pulling the wagon. Everytime the semi stopped adding the gas, the JK started sliding on the strap.

Not saying that a CJ, YJ, or TJ would do any better mind you.

Its not staged, its pretty easy to see what was actually going on. The semi was giving the truck gas as the JK jerked it forward a little bit. All the semi needed was a little pull from the JK every now and then to maintain traction while he was giving it gas.

There is no way that any wrangler could pull a semi in the snow unless the driver gives the semi some throttle like he did in this video. As whiteyj said as soon as the semi let off the gas the JK just fishtailed all over the place.

Cool video though!

Its definately not staged. The guy that did that posts on another forum and posted that up. The semi is definately giving gas though, he just helped it when it get moving forward with some traction.

I couldn't handle the clucking hen long enough to see the whole video.
Are you born to resist, or be abused?
