A lot of the smaller towns by Ames/DM have sled pulls through the season. I will check with a friend of mine I used to pull with and see if we can get our hands on a sled to practice with.

F350KR, yes there is a stock class to pull in. There are diff rules to what is considered stock. One thing to think of before hooking to the sled, are your u-joints greaseable??? When you pull it cooks the grease right out and you will burn your hand touching the u-joint. You would not believe the stress put on them!!!

I am not sure the truck is new. Ill look. If not ill have my Trans guy swap em out. I was looking at making driveshaft loops too. As the rear drive shaft is aluminum.

Safety loops may be required even in stock....great idea to have though. I have had my fair share explode while running my old Highboy's on the sled! Might want to look into getting an open face helmet, sometimes required at some events. I was thinking, maybe we should start our own pulling club/drag club/off road???
