Pulled my Powerstroke this weekend

So I finally got the chance to hook my truck up to a sled this weekend. Ended up pulling three times and didnt do that terribly bad, being it was my first time I had ever pulled. And the truck really wasn't as ready as I wanted it to be. But anyway. Here's the pulls :

1st Pull:YouTube - MVI_0216.MOV

2nd Pull:YouTube - MVI_0316.MOV

And yeah, I think that was his name, I met him but I can't really remember now. They were from Straight Diesel. They are having another pull in Big Lick in a few weekends. Im thinking about trying to make it.

Looks good man. I don't know much about pulling but both those runs seem good for your first and second times.

Ha. I love it. Anything to do with Diesel is fun to me.

And C'mon on now Josh... you would have done fine. I pulled with no blocks, or traction bars.

Yeah sure was. The first pull I let it shift on its own and it shifted into 3rd, that killed my pull, but it still didnt do bad.

On the second pull, I started in 2nd and kept it there the whole pull.

And this was in Creswell, NC if anyone was wondering.
