it is and always has been about keeping people out of the hospitals best we could while we developed the tools (cough...VACCINE...cough) to protect people. lololol, then of course we developed them and the dumb took over.
it was never the sequel to I am Legend...and nobody made it...
they each have their place.
snatch block to tree saver? I'd use a steel shackle.
extending a tow rope? soft all the way.

Tow strap to bumper...

What made the rating party rate the one rated vehicle lower then another...

If that were true, wouldn't a Power Wagon rate the same as a Tradesman 2500 rather then much lower? They list as 1/2 the payload. Same chassis & brakes I believe.
