No I think he means the ford was down not one but 2 inches. It helps #best

Ford looks like it's sitting lower than the dodge.. The strap would be pulling the dodge rear end down, helping the dodge with traction. Unless my logic is wrong...

Being lower is helping the Ford.

Dodge had less traction.

The Cummins pretty much just blows his tires off the whole time. That's why he can't get traction....

The higher truck always has a advantage...the fords pulling the rear end of the dodge down helping the dodge gain traction and the dodge is pulling the fords rear end up making it loose traction... Hookin the strap doesnt prove much its more of a fight between who has more traction not more power

Bingo.
The higher truck definitely has the advantage. I would think that the diesel has the torque advantage as well. What we just witnessed was that the Ford even with its height disadvantage was able to hook more power to the ground in the tug of war. This is a testament to the suspension geometry of the F150. It simply works better. That Dodge appeared to be a couple of generations old so results may change with a current model. Cool video.

I had a little truck pull with my buddy a few weeks ago. Of course I have the Crew Cab 2013 XLT Ecoboost all stock and he has an 2008 F150 Extended Cab 4x4 5.4L on 35" All Terrain tires.

We pulled in 2wd to make it fair, I thought I was gunna smoke him but neither of us gained any ground, we both just started spinning tires.... hhhmmmm
