That's actually funny considering I pulled a dually powerstroke backwards the other night both in stock tunes and 2wd. That little thing hooked up and must be awd.

Too bad he didn't pony up the coin for rear springs instead of blocks. Axle wrap.

Tauregs are stupid heavy for their size. My aunt has one and I have had to borrow it pull my tj out a couple times. They are pretty capable off-road too with push button lockers and adjustable ride height.

Absolute pain in the butt to work on though.

exactly. I thinks it's funny that people think a truck tug-o-war is a test of power. It's really a test of traction.

the v-10 tdi's are very powerful engines. twin turbo's and great traction control, but they do not have lockers in the axles, only a center diff lock. I work on them often and you could not pay me to own one! The electrical problems they have are very costly and quite regular.
