I've heard over and over that in these tug of wars it boils down to two things. The first being traction the second being weight. Well we know you have the weight so i would guess you have him.

Yeap you should pull him, if he has a big lift he might have a slight advantage but only slight.... Just let him be a fool and break traction then you be gentle with the go pedal stay out of boost and let the 7.3 do its magic

Ive heard duallys do have a disadvantage because of less ground pressure to keep traction.... as far as tug o war goes....
