Talking Conquored a hill that a Chevy couldn't

My cousin tried making it up this hill after a lot of rain, and the place has too much gravel in one spot, and his colorado is a 4x4 but it still got stuck half way up...

I told him I'd try it in my 2wd Ranger and he said NO WAY could it make it... So we took my camera in my truck (sorry didn't have it when we were in his truck), but after a little struggle I made it to the top..

I guess its not that amazing of a story to know that a ford can make it up a hill like that though... haha. Especially since most of you guys know what Rangers will do...


And after I thought a little of what Pbav8tor said..

when you drive a Ford you don't need shoes, because you know you're not gonna have to walk up that hill like a Chevy driver..

yeah sorta, the place is for sale...nobody lives there right now... use to be part of my grandma's farm, they divided it into tracts after she moved away and sold it... There's another road but the people that bought that tract of land closed it and built this new road.... Its way too steep, and you can barely get up there. There's no way to make it in a car...
