vinniekq2 DO NOT PULL EACH OTHER ON PAVEMENT,,roflllll.a transmission will break somewhere
I would take that challenge with my 7.3.
Go off road,spin your back tires to gid a little hole,let him back up to you.Your truck weighs 7,000 pounds,with the back tires in a little rut and your brakes on,he wont even move you.when he digs a hole and cant move,charge him for a tow. The diesel also has a posi rear diff so that also helps

cat engine

I have a friend that put a Cat Semi truck engine- Trans in his pickup, Axles out of a large motor home, trade trucks for a weekend ? wheel bearing grease on his tires works better.. lasts longer.

Do you have granny gear first. he may be in for a suprise. If so then you just need a load of wood in the back. also be sure to oil his tires before the competion and insist its on the street. No reason to make it a fair fight.

The heavy powerstroke will pull harder cause its got more wieght.
