Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

Is there any greater glory for a mid-sized pickup truck than coming to the rescue of a full-grown big rig?

Reader Benjamin, who sent this to us, says the big rig is his fatherā€™s. Sounds like it couldnā€™t get going under its own power when a starter went out when a brave good samaritan in a 2002 Dodge Dakota V8 came over to render assistance.

That pickup would have been bumping out well shy of 300 horsepower. Even without a trailer, that semi truck tractor should be north of 15,000 pounds and way beyond the little Dodgeā€™s rated tow limit.

Donā€™t try this at home, kids. But still, score one for the sort-of little guys!
