6.4 Sled Pull tips

Running Spartan 250 tune as my daily tune. Suggestions. Do I upload my 310 or is it just gonna kill my truck. Suspension is stock should I try building a block setup or would using my soon to be installed firestone bags help. -

-Guessing like 30-35 psi front pressure
-45-50 rear psi
-4x4 LOW.
-I here many pics but what is best for 6.4. 1,2,3 or drive. Tow haul or not for start
-mash it depending traction or ease into it as you feel


Thanks! Please let me know I am thinking about it for next week. I rather not pull but I may want to

4 lo,

I would think tow/haul is a good idea,

Not drive, I would go third.

Not sure in a diesel truck if you would romp off the line, but

Modifieds don't come off the line WOT, they get a little momentum, then dump it til the flag waves the done.

As far as tunes, whatever you don't think will tear up your tranny. As long as your touque converter will stay locked up, I say let her eat.
