Funny stuff! IMO the lift kit lost the tug of war for the Chevy. Once the rear springs wrapped up and he lost traction it was over.

For those wondering, the Toureg may look like a minivan at first glance but the V10 TDI weighs almost 6000 pounds, has over 300 hp and close to 500 ft./lbs of torque. Kind of a tug of war "sleeper".

Yup - just bought a '12 T-reg TDI- it's a lot of fun- that v10 is a badass machine- advanced AWD system with locking center diff- D-max lost b/c of traction

A friend of mine has a Toureg....don't know if it's the TDI but it's pretty cool. It has the offroad package and you just push a button and it goes from looking like a regular SUV to looking like a monster truck all jacked up.
