Talking True GM Frame Rigidity Test

Got this from a buddy of mine. Pardon the language in the vid, viewer discretion is advised, still cracks me up regardless. Poor GMC...

I was wondering the same thing?... I would think surely a truck frame, even a half ton, would stay in one piece even pulling on it like that. It doesn't even try to stay together, it's like butter. Just melts.

Frames are designed to take pressure the other way. Seen it a few times with trucks half way off bridges etc...

I figure if my truck had been laying upside down in icy/muddy pond/lake water like that, the tractor driver would be the least of my concern
