We use a heavy cable that's from a rigging setup.

Good advice on technique.

Only part you left out - MAKE SURE YOU VIDEO IT!:D

Don't do it........if you screw up a stock Ford/Dodge will pull you all over the place. How embarrasing!!!!

HOOK HIGH!!! I broke lots of diesel powered hearts w/ my 460 powered F350. hand'em their end first and give'em one hook. Once they hook, throw the tailgate off and hook to the gooseneck ball!!!!!

well i always tell people lets hook, and no one ever does. but when someone does, i wanna be able to put them in there place. racing works, just get in more trouble with the cops that way, and i got enough tickets. i would assume torsion springs down, but weight is gonna be your best friend in a pull.

Newer style trucks don't do well at this, a strap is a must no chains. Good luck get some video

You have a better chance winning a race with a Duramax vs. PowerJoke or Cummins, but hooking chains.........Ford and Dodge are heavier. Better chance of dragging your truck! Don't do it.......save yourself the embarrasment!!!!

if your going to do it the biggest thing is you want your hitch higher than whoever your pulling against and air down the tires. slow and steady either stay on your throttle or the brakes,

Yeh these events are nice for the egos but it really doesnt prove a thing win or lose. I never have based the value off a truck on what I win or lose in drag racing,sled pulling or hooking chains. I am a bit in to truck pulling an do it for fun. If i win great. If I lose thats fine to I do it for the fun off it. GTG with your buddies who love to do the same thing an have a good time. One night I could be first the next night last. Doesnt mean a thing. Or prove anything. If people have such an ego that they think there truck is really something special. Somebody will bring them down to earth very fast. Forget this idea man. Doesnt prove a thing.

Guys, remember if not one encourages anyone to do this we won't have anyone to watch and this **** is funny as hell!!! It's a great way to break and wreck a truck and everyone loves a little distruction lol.

Hook high, weight forward, tires down, but the best thing to do is sit back and watch. The true pro's in any game don't do silly embarrasing things like this. That just ruins their class. It's not classy to be cocky.
