COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Buses can weigh up to 44,000 pounds when fully loaded, so there was nothing working in its favour, here.That’s a when a bunch of SUVs kitted up in 4×4 garb decided to show up and lend some assistance to the stranded city bus. In order to give themselves the best chance of pulling the bus, the three SUVs chained themselves together to offer three times the traction and power to pull the bus up the hill.There isn’t much information about the do-gooders, but there are rumours they are a group of off-road enthusiasts, so something like this was pretty standard.The lineup of vehicles appears to be a grey Toyota Sequoia, a black Toyota 4Runner, and a red Jeep. All three vehicles obviously have all-wheel-drive, and use it to their best advantage.
