Tug-of-war battles have been going on almost as long as the internal combustion engine has been around, but YouTube user James Green caught one of the most unique battles we’ve seen, a Jeep Grand Cherokee versus a classic International Harvester pick.

We weren’t sure who would win before we watched the video -- the Jeep has four-wheel drive and a probably a V-8 motor, while the International has dual rear wheels and a V-8 was made for hauling. The Jeep manages to make the International look like it’s not even there, not surprising for those of us that know traction is king.

The tires on the Jeep spun slightly before grabbing traction, and as soon as they were a little sticky and grabbed the asphalt, it was all over for the International, even with Bob standing on the bed for added weight.

Watch this first-gen Grand Cherokee make work of this classic International truck, it was so exciting even the dogs got into it, and next time you have some down time, now you know what you can do for entertainment.
