Blocks or bags

That's the question, which, for sled pulling...

And why...

I sled pulled on everything from almost pavement, to almost a beach this year.

Throw up pics of your trac bar set up if you got 'em too.

I pulled with nothing all year. Somehow, I still have the stock rear end. Probably because I'm underpowered huh? Lol...

Airbags, because you want your truck to ride normally when you aren't hooked up... With an add-a-leaf or block, you will hate the ride.

Here's my airbag setup:

Well, this truck has always been my tow mule.

But, the plans for it might make it a little stupid to tow with. If it proves to be to complicated to tow with, I'll find an old dually.

But, I was wondering what guys have found work on the track.
