First time pulling

Well, tonight I'm gonna give it a shot! There's a truck and tractor pull at our local county fair and I'm going to enter my truck. Not sure what to expect for a turnout yet, I'm just hoping to have fun, learn something, and not break anything. My wifes supposed to take a video for me and maybe some pics as well so when I get a chance I'll post 'em up. Wish me luck!

thanks guys (and Julie)! Hopefully I'll be able to hook up ok with my stock BFG's... I checked out the track today when they were working it up and its mostly black topsoil with a small clay content. Once its packed it shouldn't be too bad for traction.
