Default 98 jimmy vs 08 F-350 turbo diesel 4wd

The other day i was using my bobcat to clear some land and got it stuck really bad. Almost ready to roll down a hill. We had two vehicles on site my buddies truck a 08 f-350 turbo diesel 4wd and my 98 jimmy 4wd, so our decision to hook the chains to the f-350 was a no brainer right? Well after 30 minutes of the wheels spinning in 4wd and the bobcat wheels spinning we realized we were getting no where. I had one of my laborers calling a tow company to come winch us out and i figured let me try the jimmy just for ****s and giggles. Well after 45 seconds, 20 ft tall roster tails and a bunch of jaws dropping the bobcat was pulled out. Ive been a chevy guy my entire life and was very proud to say so on that day.

I was in a similar situation with my 2000 Blazer. One of our warehouse guys got our forklift stuck in soft sand so i hooked up the blazer and pulled it right out.

But the Ford wasn't an EcoBoost. I read that the EcoBoost is the cats meow. Better than a diesel. LOL.
Junk Fords. The last Ford I had I gave it away. POS.
