I'd like to see how they all fair with the same tires.  Ram's stock AT is horrible.  They didn't say if they opted for the off road package in the Ram, which adds some goodies.

Ford's AT is reportedly really stout, and according to this article may be same or very similar to the one Chevy uses.  But I have read that the Ford computer substantially reduces available torque in first 3 gears for SRW, first 2 gears for DRW.  Regardless, towing with one of these rigs is really pretty amazing, at least it is with my '19 F250.

Mine is coming up on 40K miles, so its going to need a new set of shoes, that's gonna be $eriou$.

There's a reason bulldozers are heavy. A better test would have been to load the bed to factory specified capacity then pull.
Sounds like the Chevy isn't an Allison transmission as advertised.
