Can your pickup truck haul a car in its bed? Sure it can! You may have seen a pickup carry a side-by-side or a snowmobile in its bed, but this is a rare case of a Ram HD short bed truck with a Smart Car hitching a ride in the back.
Ultra-compact dimensions and relatively light weight (just over 1,600 lbs) allowed for this to happen, but how does one get a Smart Car inside a bed of truck? This Ram heavy duty appears to be a diesel, judging by a big and dark exhaust pipe (see below).
The front wheels of the Smart have been removed and the car is resting at an angle, allowing the car’s rear wheels just fit on the tail gate. Loading and securing this load surely took a long timed.
I can now rest assured and wonder no more whether a Smart Car fits inside a regular pickup truck bed.
Here is another take at heavy towing with a Ram HD 3500 dually.
