7.3 vs 6.6 hooking chains

do i stand a chance?
my crew cab 350 7.3 with a 6 spd 4x4 vs a 2005 regular cab durasmax 2500 4x4 and he has a bully dog triple something set on extreme. if we hook up with a big chain is he gonna drag me around? any tips for taking off once the chain is pulled tight? weight in the bed matter?
i want to chain up but i dont want to get embarrased.

Put your truck in 4 Low and then put the stick in L and air down the tires a bit and you should be able to pull him away going really slow.

let some air out of your tires, 4 low, let him spin then take off slow. You have more weight so if you do it right you will drag him

if you can flip your reciever and ball so you get a slightly higher mounting point on your truck, the chain pulling will lift his rear end, and push yours into the ground.

so do i stand on the brake and wait for him to spin the tires or dump it in low or "roll it out in low" do you think that im going to run out of R's in low range?

Just throw your truck in reverse, back into his, startle him then take off going forward and pull him away.

Yes good advice. Make your hitch as high as possible without looking like you are trying to cheat. Do not just stand on the brake until he is smoking the tires that is cheating. Just ease out on it and hope that he just punches it. As soon as the tires start to spin hard the traction will go down and you will be able to pull him. JJ
