Pull in two wheel drive.

Ratchet straps but I doubt MSDP would let you have them if you can have bars

I was talkin about this on thedieselgarage.. I swear someone said that if you over inflate the front a bit they will spin instead of hop and air down the rears for traction.. idea being that a SLIGHT spin will grab way harder than hopping..

I might be crazy but I swear I remember someone talking about Tire pressure... i dunno about adding weight to these big *** trucks but i'm no drag racer..
