Blocking the rear is a must. Different assoc. have different rules. Some are solid, some 1" some 2". I take it is an auto? Ease off the line to get it rolling and keep laying the shoe to it. Don't let it go to drive, the gearing is too high.

it is an auto. we can block ours solid, my buddies pull their duramax diesels. we cant hang any weight though, and we are suppose to be 8k max. are you manually shifting the tranny, or put it in a gear and let it shift itself?

putting a block in place of the bump stop it so that you have no rear end squat

My truck is a 6spd. I hear stories both ways. Only way to see what works best for you is to try it. Look around at the pulls and don't be afraid to ask.

Yeh I know what you mean. I would try first to let it shift by itself.

i have been talkin with pat about upgrading my programer to the sct. one of the guys that drives one of the duramaxs rides the van to work with me, and the other i know fairly well. they are both trying to help me go in the right direction. one use to install lifts and brought a set of bump stop relocator brackets by but the would not fit. they dont have much done to the d max other than some huge programers. one has a fuel pump and suncoast tranny, the other just did shim up his fuel rack. both are solid in the rear. they have tried to find out what the other powerstoke has but he is hush hush
