I'm also overly anxious, thought about starting a thread last week to ask the same thing. Too bad pulling season isn't year around.

Todd, No its not to early.


I'm glad pulling isn't year round. I'd be even more broke than I am now.

I am with you! Now is the time to do the things you blow off the rest of the year to go pulling... And to hopefully make the pullers a little stronger for next year.

You guys are no fun, but I do understand. I'm lucky my truck didn't break again this year. Guess I need to figure out some cheap upgrades or find another winter hobby.

There are cheap upgrades for pullers......

I honestly don't see how the guys in OH, IN, KY, etc do it. Sounds like in some areas they could pull 3, 4, 5 times a week! Heck we pull anywhere from 1-3 times a week for 2.5 months and that is enough. Traveling a couple hundred miles and getting home in the a.m. starts to wear on a guy.

Yeah... not so easy. But I've got an old beater, not near the hotrod you guys do.

I only made 5 pulls this year, furthest I went was 175 miles to save some money... this is probably why I still have the urge.

I've heard they're planning one still. I'm going to be a little better prepared this year

Good to hear. I think many of us just plan on it each year now.

If I were you I would just bring those bald tires back next year. You did just fine with them last year....

I'll have 6 new 285"s . They sure upset a 2.8 Cummins guy in CO at that last NSPA pull .
There will be some new true 2.6 trucks for those MO boys to worry about this year. One or two will prolly give the 2.8 trucks some competition. I hope mine can compete.
