V10 Tug of war with Jeep

I have a 2006 V10 TDI. A coworker has a lifted 2019 Wrangler Unlimited and has challenged me to a tug of war. There’s a pretty large office bet going on in favor of the Touareg. I’m confident in the Touareg as I know what it’s capable of. I’ve seen the YouTube video of it dragging a wrangler down the road. My only concern is that I don’t have any rear axle lockers and also don’t want to damage anything on the Touareg by using the factory hitch.

If you have enough traction with your tires you should be the winner. Maybe it helps it to reduce a bit of tire pressure, if your tires are not sticky enough.

There are videos of sedan Audis vs. Jeep , and Audi pulls the jeep. Compared to Audis, you have a 750nm torque engine + low range gear + low range first gear in your trany + center diff. This setting is enough to pull a heavy truck uphills.

Sounds good, my only concern is that the Jeep has Axle lockers.

Right, that's a little to his advantage but still Touareg has electronic locking diff (ELD) on both front and rear axles which to some extent compensates the lack of real lockers.

Touareg (03-09) are designed to send up to 100% of the power to one wheel. Touareg will loose if it does not have enough traction on all four wheels or the opponent has a stronger setting.

There is a new video from Russia, a tug of war between a v6 Touareg and a new G-Wagon with front+center+rear lockers on, and guess what, Touareg pulls it

The smartest thing the Wrangler can do is lock the axles, everything in Low, and shut off the engine. Also be careful how the strap is connected- ideally you want it higher on your vehicle and lower on his, which pulls you down for greater traction and lifts him to reduce traction.
If he does start pulling and spinning his wheels, feed a little more power and drive away with him.

tl,dr: You've got this.

Indeed, the strap must be level for the war to be fair.

No need to worry. You most likely have 2000 lb weight advantage over the Jeep along with all the low rpm torque.
