My colleague/friend drove a Dodge Ram 1500 a few years back. 5.9 ltr V8,
4*4. My RangeRuster got stuck one day on my property. It took a Defender
110 to tow both the Ruster _and_ the Ram out, together. We -luckily- did
not ruin the Ram though.
Nice, I suspect that the winch was bolted to the tub right back near the
cab. As a result the winch would have been pulling the middle of the
truck upwards, and with the pull from the front it obviously bent the
chassis :) I'm wondering how many miles the F150 got down the road
before a prop went too :)
If they had had the winch mounted at the rear, the stress would have
been transmitted directly through the chassis and it would not have bent
