Tug a truck

well, me and my buddy had a great idea at work today.

we decieded to see whos truck to pull the other, (it was for fun we both know it doesnt prove to much)

His truck
2002 7.3 Dually Longbed Crew cab. stock 100k

Vs. me
1999 Long bed 250 super cab, chip and some other goodies 242k

Well I drug him backwards for about 15 feet, then stopped. looked in my mirror and just saw white smoke everywhere. it was funny because going into this I thought he was going to win, but as soon as i felt him start pulling me i let of the brake and took him with me. Now his truck is making a funny noise on the rear passanger side tire... it sure was fun tho, im kinda hooked, probably would be a different story if i lost.

just thought id share my first tugatruck, i also thought it would be cool if anyone else has done this, to tell what truck they used and what trucks they beat, or beat them...

Let us know what the noise is. Might be a wheel bearing? Busted brake components?
