I got a question . Theres a guy i know who has a Toyota Tacoma who is always braggin' on it. He swears he can hook up to me and drag my Bronco with the 4.9 I6 around. I'm pretty sure i could pull him around with no problem, but do ya'll think he could actually do it. i don't want to go out there and look like a idiot gettin' pulled around by a Toyota. I'm pretty sure i could beat him but i want to see what everybody says.
Cybertaz, I think it will be a weight/traction issue. I'm certain the 300I6 will pull harder than a toyota. But if you don't have enough weight for your tires to bite, he will drag you backwards while all of your tires are spinning. Agree to the pull, but show up with about 1000 lbs of junk in the back of your truck. DF
Weight, Traction, and torque. That's what you need. The weight needs to be directly over the axles and you need traction to pull. If you are going to do this on pavement, then you need more surface area of rubber on the pavement, i.e. slicks. If you are doing this on the dirt, then you need an aggressive tire like a Super Swamper Bogger or something with a chevron pattern. In both cases, air-down your tires to make the contact patches larger. You'll rip the frame out from underneath that 'yota.
I can't believe you guys even think this is going to be a contest. We're talking about a Toyota Tacoma vs. a full-size Ford Bronco, right? I watched my brother destroy a Toyota in a pulling contest a few weeks ago...and my brother drives a V6 Chevy S10! This guy has a Bronco with a 300 cubic inch motor and lots more weight. This should not even be a contest. That toyota is toast.
In fact, I honestly would not be surprised if this guy could pull that toyota in 2-wheel-drive. No kidding.
