top gear "toughest trucks"

anyone catch this, im not sure why they put up the f450 against the ram and silverado 3500. Pretty lame competition IMO but entertaining. The Dodge looked pitiful though.

Thought it was funny the Chevy had to back up to spin the tires and Ford did circles around the guys. The hill clime could have been better had the guy not spun the tires all the way. Also the Race they did had he not spun the tires on take off Ford would have had it all the way .. It was a give away to all three I say..
The ram was pathetic .

You will laugh when you see them do the tire spin . The Chevy was a joke the ram same thing damn with some spin . The train pull was good and you will see how if the Ford had not spun on the race he would have had him all the way. Did good on almost catching the Chevy at the end to.

The pro driver if he wanted to win should have actually did a 4wd boosted launch I know he knows how to drive but he did the same thing with the rally car too
