I havent pulled a 08 so I couldnt tell ya 4hi or 4lo but you dont wanna just hammer it off the line. The smoother the pull the better. You dont wanna get bouncing to much. Im sure some of the 6.4 guys will chime in.

ive never pulled before but it cant be to hard...4hi in drive, after your hooked up and have the slack out of the chain, power brake on the line to build boost. when the man drops the flag release the brake and role on the power. smooth is fast and fast is smooth, dont over power the track. and when you feel the truck is just about to stop role off the power smooth to prevent chug chug noise. or invest in a B.O.V

one last thing. dont jerk the sled. the operator doent like to being bounced around..you piss him off and he will make you work hard for a good pull

Im thinking you will want to go 4lo if your going to have 37" tires. I know when we pull our cummins we shift manualy in 4lo. I just like doing it that way better.

I would use 4 low. And make sure it doesnt make it into od. It will probably take you a few pulls to figure out what the truck likes best.
