Sled Pulling ???s

Truck is in signature. Going to add some arb air locker F/R, Traction Bars, 190s with a stage 3 or 4 MTW turbo. Billet trans and driveshaft probably++

Never pulled a sled, just want to build this truck into something that can pull.

You would want to lose the lift and get some smaller tires.

I've seen larger trucks pull sleds just fine?

depends on your suspension set up most of the lifted trucks ive seen hooked to a sled hopped and bucked their way down the track.... even with traction bars.

there is a reason most pullers are running stockish ride height.

You want a very stiff suspension, much give or bounce and things will get hopping, and then they will break.

Running 8" Icon springs in front and rear and they are stiff. Anyone know how large Denny Hao's truck sits? He pulls the **** out of that sled and he's lifted.
