Dairy Truck Pull In Hico TX November 5th 2011

Finally found a truck pull here in Texas. It's in Hico TX on November 5th at the Uphill Diary Farm.

I've got a 1997 F-350 Crew Cab Long box with a 7.5 460. I've been reading up on little things to do and so far this is what I've come up with:

- inflate rear tires to 45 psi
- deflate front tires to about 20 psi
- start out in 4 low second gear

Any other advise? thanks

Well it was a great turnout today! First time pulling so I didn't do as good as I should have but it was still a blast! Pulled 289' in 4x4 low, 2nd gear, Work Stock Class. Started to hop at the end so had to shut her down...in desperate need of traction bars and some more hp. Did pretty good for first time pulling...I was a little hesitant due to fear of breaking something. Next time I'll have traction bars and will hammer it all the way down the track

Small world. Good talking to you at the pull. We had the black regular cab dually there. You came and parked by us for awhile. Nice truck and nice pull BTW.

Wow it is a small world...good to hear from ya man.

Thanks I need a lot more hp and some traction bars but I just wanted to get a baseline for upcoming pulls. I can see how this could get extremely addictive
