I know nothing about pulling...but my advise is,...pay attention to the trucks when you hook them up,...look at them closely,..and ask questions...

Check the rules for where you want to hook.

Most likely you will be hooking in the 2.5" turbo class.

First things first....

Get a hitch.
Traction bars.
Build your weight bracket.

Once you get to the track... 4 wheel lo... most likely second gear no matter what trans.

Have fun.
