Predict the outcome

was just throwing some ideas around, and started thinking about pulling off against my buddy. My mods are in my sig, and he has a 2003 2500hd with the 8.1L and a 6 speed, he has nothing done but exhaust, who do you guys think will win? im confident in the ol powerstroke but man his truck has some power.

big blocks are pretty ballsy, but, if you could get traction i'd say you have a good shot.

Power doesnt mean chit in a pull off/tug o war. Traction is king there. Dont move till he starts spinning. You will win for sure then. But if your tires are shot or you break traction you are screwed.

Pull offs are pointless. All they prove is willingness to break crap

I think you would win, i have seen powerstrokes put duramaxes so i would think a gasser would be easier than that. You should have the weight/traction advantage

If you force him to break traction you will win. Be careful though, pull offs break chit!

Go to your local walley world and buy one of those big plastic tool boxes..then go to a supply store and fill it full of sand (with it in the back of your truck beforehand) You wont prove anything ...but you must have some reason for it to matter.
No matter who wins ,keep in mind that a large skid loader with maybe 60 horsepower maximum would drag either one of you backward for a couple miles.
Why treat your truck like a tractor??

Hope youre at least chargeing the onlookers an admission fee...the entertainment value is pretty high !
(but not quite as high as when someone shouts "girl fight" in high school!)
