I was wondering if there's a pulling class that doesn't require all the extra stuff- weights, different hitch etc. I'd just like to hook up my dail driver and see what she's got. But I know it's probablynot to smart to run what you plan on driving home huh?
I don't know about where you are, but here in West Tennessee, we have tractor/truck pulls at the fair. They have the usual circuit classes with the real strict rules, but after everything is done, they have a run what you brung stock gas and diesel class. So there is probably a pretty good chance they might. However, with the new diesels, some places are requiring driveshaft and universal loops on all shafts due to liability.
It depends. They usually make you have a 6" long tube at least 1/8" thick over each universal, and one 2" ring 1/8" in the middle of the shafts. It's not so much throwing a shaft into the crowd, but i have seen blown universals come loose from the rear end and sling shot a pretty good ways. Some places will also make you put two 3/8" grade 5 bolts in the exhaust pipes withing 12" of the turbo. It really just depends. The diesels now have gotten so stout that they are no longer really run-what-you-brung like a few years ago. They just trying to keep everyone safe, and i understand it.

Same here on the other side of the state. You could run your truck, but you probably wouldn't stand a chance at winning, but it would be fun anyway.
