Greg Strychar works the third shift at Warren (Mich.) Stamping as a Millwright. As he exited the freeway yesterday on his way home from work, he spotted an 18-wheeler stuck in the snow beside the local Home Depot.
There was a Ford F150 hooked up to it, trying to help, but unable to budge the huge truck. Strychar, who drives a 2006 Dodge Ram Mega Cab 3500 Laramie with a Cummins Turbo Diesel 6-speed, pulled up and offered assistance. In order to hook up to the truck, Strychar had to get his truck into the snow as well.
After hooking up his truck, he gave it a tug. It didn't take long before his Ram and the 18-wheeler were back on dry pavement. According to Strychar, "it just goes to prove that Dodge is the superior product on the market today. The drivetrain on my truck is stock. I've only upgraded the tires to the BFG A/T 315/70r17."
Strychar, who said he has been helped by good samaritans in the past and was happy to return the favor, said the driver of the 18-wheeler was very thankful that he and his Dodge Ram happened by to save the day. Oh, and after Strychar purchased his Ram Mega Cab, two of his neighbors went out and bought Dodge Ram Mega Cab vehichles of their very own.
