Ford Ranger Rescues a Ram HD: Muddy Monday
Tiny Ford pulls the huge Ram 2500 out of the mud three times, one time with a huge trailer in tow.
This week’s Muddy Monday video comes to us from the Azone123465 YouTube channel and it features a Ford Ranger coming to the rescue of a much bigger Ram truck that keeps getting stuck in the mud. Although the diesel-powered Ram 2500 clearly has aftermarket wheels and a lift, it can’t get itself out of the shallow mud, but a near-stock Ranger has no problems dragging the ¾-ton to safety on three separate occasions.
There are two trucks in the video above, a Ranger extended cab and a Ram 2500 short cab.
The Ford is powered by a stock 4.0-liter V6 mated to an automatic transmission and an 8.8-inch rear differential with open diffs front and rear. On paper, this is certainly not the toughest truck in the world, looking like a less-than-ideal machine for off-roading or towing full-sized trucks.
The Ram has Cummins badges, so it is likely powered by a 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel engine. It is clearly spinning all four wheels, so we know that it is a four-wheel-drive model, and neither the wheel and tire package nor the ride height is stock, so this truck has clearly been modified. It also has a big, heavy front bumper, making it look like the kind of machine that would blast through the woods, but based on this video, the owner of this Ram may want to stick to paved roads.
We don’t know the situation that led to this Ram 2500 getting stuck over and over again, but in the first segment, it appears as though the driver was just playing around, driving through some shallow mud when it got stuck. Even though the Ranger is also in loose footing, the little Ford is able to pull the big Ram to safety.
In the next clip, the Ram appears to have been trying to access a gooseneck trailer that is surrounded by mud when it got stuck, forcing the Ranger owner to come to the rescue once again.
Finally, the final clip has the Ranger pulling the Ram and the big trailer out of the mud. Even with the Ford being on loose, wet footing, the smaller truck is able to pull the Ram 2500 and the trailer out to the paved road.
