Might be close with his auto assuming it stays together. Never tried to hook up with a manual but I would think the clutch would take a beating. Would both trucks be in 2wd? If so your locks would be a big help.

The brake/boosting with the auto will be tough to handle, but if you can manage your 3 pedals fast and well enough it should be a good match.

Sounds like you've spent too much $$$ on something to mess it up in under 7seconds, to prove almost nothing... Hook it to a trailer and see who can tow that better. You know, what diesels were intended to be used for originally..
Tug-o-wars are all about traction.. You wanna win, get a set of mean @$$ tires and throw some weight in the bed. You'll win..

I agree its not all about power when it comes to tuggin... I tug my 03 dodge 3500 it has a 7 in lift with 37in tires.... i have a "power pup" tuner on it and I come in the top 2 everytime beating the guys who have injectors, fuel systems, intakes ect.
