Well I can relate to your experience.
When I was way up north of Manitoba Canada, and going back home from a shopping trip to Thompson I noticed a GM 1/2 ton stuck in the ditch. There was a Ram 4 x 4 hooked on the truck with a heavy sky doo sled in the box.
The ram was spinning trying to pull the GM out.
Well I pulled out my tow strap and hooked it on the RAM and I told the driver I was going to go realy slow because the road was to icy.
Well I shift mine into 1 st low gear with 4x 4 on and let go the clutch gently and pulled both trucks ahead at least 30ft while the Ram was helping me along after he got his traction again. I was truely surprised that it pulled so well, but I think it was a combination of good tires, gentle pull and weight of the F250.
I wish I would have had a Camera to see this Ram owner's face as I thanked him after I removed my strap from his truck. Without saying one word he got in his truck and road off.
This one song goes like this. It has the GM stuck, Ram got stock pulling the GM. The Ford pulled the Ram and got the GM and the Ram unstuck.
