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 father’s. Sounds like it couldn’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 Dodge’s rated tow limit.

Don’t try this at home, kids. But still, score one for the sort-of little guys!
