I was issued a challenge last night by the driver of a 2wd Chevy with a 350 in it to hook chains. So rather than bust out my 76 F-100 with a 360, I made it interesting. I used momma's truck, a completely stock (except for the exhaust) 1994 F-150 2wd with a 302 in it. Not only could he not move me but I actually pulled him a few feet before we quit. The only reason I let him off the hook is because I didn't want to embarass him in front of his girlfriend.
Well guys, I have a 70 f-250 and a 77 chevy, both 4x4s and I can tell you if I want to do any heavy hauling I take the chevy. This doesn't mean I don't love my old ford but the truth is the truth. By the way the ford has the biggest motor and a 4 speed trans,and about half as many miles on it as my chevy. They're both really fine old machines
whats your point? I got a suburban and a bronco. Broncos got a bigger motor and the suburban does the pulling. Guess what, the bronco will rip the frame out from under the suburban when they are chained together. I still use the burban for pulling but i know my bronco could pull more.
My opinion is the 78 ford bronco 4x4 with a 460 is the absolute truck of all trucks. Heck, a 78 with a 400 aint all that bad, it did win like every award there was when it came out.
