bumper to bumper truck pull??

i always hear of peiple strapping their trucks together to see which one has more power. i hear of people hooking them bumper to bumper, but that sounds like it could twist it up a bit. is there a better place to tie the rope/chain?

Go for coffee or a beer instead.

I would never get into a pull contest from just one side of the frame.

Trailer hitch to trailer hitch works very well. I've never had a problem doing it that way.

If neither of you have a trailer hitch...hook a strap (not chain) as close as you can to the differential on the axle.....or to a tow hook if you have on the rear...
