Fords don't break down they just need a rest now and again.

There are a few of the guys that do truck pulling in here, I'll see if I can't give them a heads up to stop by Tyler.

Not sure what kind of trucks are running around in your area, and I don't mean to offend the Ford Truck Community, but you are going to have a bitch of a time competing with the Dodges and the Chebbies!! Around here, pretty much any Ford (diesel) that competes usually gets it handed to them. I guess in the 'stock' classes all trucks are pretty much equal, but once you get into the classes where some mods are allowed, the Dodges and Chebbies pretty much end at the top.....However, you don't know until you try it!!! Anything specific you wanted to know??

In the stock class youll be alright, not sure what the rules are w/ chips at your fair, in Wahoo (Saunders County) they limited everyone to 60HP in the stock class. In anything modified the Fords usually fall short though due to there injection system holding them back in the performance world. After a few years the 6.4 and new 6.7 should be able to run something like a EFI program on a Duramax since they use a common rail setup. The downfall will be tryin to get the emmissions crap that is all over them to accept a program such as that.

Well if you can weigh say 8,500lbs and your truck only weighs 8,000lbs (just an example on weight) it would be in your best interest to find 500lbs of weight and get as close to the front of the truck as possiable, so a couple weights on your passenger floor and 3 right behind your seat. Running and automatic/diesel you'll tighten up the sled chain, then you'll want to powerbrake a little to get your boost up (BTW you'll wanna be in 4 low 1st), then turn er loose and hold er to the floor, if it starts to bounce or hop ease out some until it settles down, as soon as your up a decent rpm, prolly 2,700 on a 7.3 shift to 2nd, if it's pulling real easy you might be able to make 3rd for a little bit, but once it starts to pull down be ready to shift down with it. The key is to get as much track speed as you can. You can also just put it in Drive and go to, your tranny just runs higher psi in manual 1 and 2. You may also wanna run your max psi in your rear tires, so at least 50psi if you can, then you'll want to let your front tires down quite a bit, on a gas pickup weighing 6,500lbs, w/ 1,200lbs out front I'm running 18psi in the front tires. When I pulled a stock pickup last I let the front tires down to 20psi, they do squat quite a bit, but with the heavier diesel motor and heavier vehicle in general you'll have to be the judge of how much you let them down to, I'd guess at least 25psi.

Also, depending on what the rules are for the class that you are going to be pulling in, try to get the rear of the truck as 'solid' as possible. The easiest way to do this would be to build some clamps for the rear leaf springs, or if you are motivated and talented enough, you could take a weekend and fab up some removable traction bars for the rear. I'm assuming you will be pulling from your receiver hitch?? Try to keep your hitch height at a happy medium....not too high, but not too low either. Our rules are a max of 26" height. Pretty good height in my eyes so I would shoot for something around there. That height will keep the truck under control and keep the sled from bottoming out too soon. Otherwise X2 on everything that Bouc said!!
