Sometimes, when we have to act quickly, we don’t have the ability to pick the right tool for the right job, despite what all our fathers may have taught us. That’s when working with what you’ve got comes into play. You’ve been there before, right?
Well, back in 2012, these rural West Virginians didn’t have a lot of options available when they needed to move a massive single wide mobile home. Enter this Dodge Dually. It looks like this guy won’t be able to even nudge the thing, but sure enough, he gets the job done. Right on!
Gotta love West Virginians, right? When there’s a will, there is most certainly a way. Just from reading the YouTube comments, you’d think this video were the feel-good story of the century. Plenty of love for Dodge trucks, that’s for sure. “Power of a Dodge! Lol you just can’t stop them,” reads one comment. “Power to DODGE!!” reads another. (sensing a theme here?)
Of course, a few commenters couldn’t resist taking a few shots at foreign auto brands, with one commenter writing, “Nothin’ to it but to do it…and he did it. American truck = job done. Try that in a TOYota. It’s not happening.” Piggybacking off that commenter’s critique of Toyota, another commenter added, “That’s impressive! You can’t do that with a Toyota or Nissan due to frame rot.”
Sure, maybe scrolling through YouTube comments isn’t the best way to get hard-hitting auto analysis, but you can’t argue that watching American trucks do their thing really gets the people going. Especially when it’s an American truck pulling off a seemingly insurmountable feat.
