Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 Pulls Out Stuck Semi Truck from Deep Snow - Good Deed for the Day!
Leaving the gym I came across a tanker truck which was stuck in some deep
snow. He swung the cab over into an unplowed area with about 6" of hard
snow and his super single drive tires just weren't getting traction. I was
in my S4 at the time and told him I only lived about 10 minutes away and
would come back with my truck. The truck driver was thankful but made it
clear he didn't think a pickup would be able to pull him.
As promised I came back with the Dakota (and camera!) to see him still
struggling. Plenty of people with trucks much larger than mine drove right
on by, nobody seemed interested in helping this guy. As someone who has
been helped before, I figured I'd at least give it a shot. Plus it'd be
With all the excitement, I forgot to lock it into 4lo on the first attempt.
I don't think he was helping with the cab, you can see I was able to rock
it a bit in 4Hi. On the second try in 4lo I had no problem yanking it out.
The truck driver didn't know the weight of the truck as it sits. His full
weight is 122,000 lbs (55,338 kg). This isn't your average semi truck,
this thing was huge. I'm guessing it was 40,000 to 50,000 lbs empty.
The pickup is a 2000 Dodge Dakota SLT quad cab 4x4 4.7L V8. It's mostly
stock. The rear axle is fully locking (Powertrax No-Slip) with 3.55 gears.
Tires are 31 x 10.5 BFG TA KO's. The Exhaust is an MBS catback stainless system.
