    It was the Power Puller episode. It was a classic match up. Chevy vs. Jeep.

    Obviously, they happened to find a 3/4 ton 2wd Chevy out there with a 4 speed and a V8. Even had the 14BFF in there. They used some old Firestone turf tires on it.

    The other team got stuck with a CJ5 with a 258 and the stock axles. On the third pull they snapped the rearend. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif I watched it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I thought it was a 12 bolt though... truck looked like a 1/2 ton when they were pulling it back and I didn't see the big FF hubs when they were messing with the drums. I could be wrong though.

    Either way... Chevy prevailed. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Yep, I watched it. The Chevy won!(like we had any doubt /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif)

    It was a 1/2 ton 2wd with a 12 bolt rear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
