Mr Higgs, I don't know ya.. but I defineately LOVE YOUR STYLE!!

Put up or shut up is something I respect!


btw, in a pavement pull off the first guy to get fwd movement is gonna win nearly everytime. It's just physics. Having a clutch and knowing how to use it is a key part in getting things to *go your way*.

Thanks alot Rich!

He wouldnt talk to me today or anyone else at school, he is pretty butt hurt about it.
If you are going to talk smack, be prepared to back it up

I had a 99 F-250 7.3 (410hp/986tq) and a guy was talking smack about it with his cummins. We pulled in a parking lot by my house and he had one rear hook on his passenger side frame rail, he was tugging me while i had my foot on the brake spooling up and tweaked his frame so bad that the cab forever touches the frame on one side. Needless to say, once the turbo kicked in (38psi) i drug him back through the sub division, almost 1/8 mile before i let off...he never talked smack again.

Every vehicle i have ever had gets ripped on, because of the physical size of the owner i beleive, but i always have walked away from the s*** talkers smiling

Justin, can you tell me that you wouldn't prefer having a 4.0 over the 3.0?

This really had more to do with traction than the engine. All you really proved was that he is an idiot for not making sure to compare apples to apples.

I would take a 4.0 OHV over a 3.0, but i do like the high rpm power band the 3.0 has that the 4.0 lacks, reguardless the 4.0 has alot more power. as for the SOHC, id put a Briggs and Stratton in my truck before id own one of those turds

What's wrong with the SOHC? Jealous of the torque and horsepower output?

i can tell you never have driven a OHV 4.0L low end just ***** it has.. its known for it...

SOHC having to SCREAM to make power just like any top cam motor.. no thanks.. timing chains timing chains timing chains.... < there i said it...

I'll take my good old push rod motor... but then again i am REALLY ****ed up i would rather have a flat head style like an old flathead 105hp motor...

This thread isnt going to turn into a 3.0 v.s 4.0 pissing match. Im perfectly content with my 3.0 especially getting 22mpg city with 33's and 4:10's

i showed the SOHC what was up, i may have had some advantages but it shut him up

sometimes i wonder why i post anything, some peoples egos around here are so large, they belong on a dodge ram forum

I'm not starting a pissing match I just don't see how the SOHC is a bad motor. Yes the timing chains are a problem but guess what, I didn't design it. And I don't consider 3000 RPM screaming. If the 3.0 was such a good motor then why was it phased out?

Oh and you showed the driver what's up not the engine. A similar equipped 4.0 would have dragged you across town.

That comment wasnt directed solely at you, it seems that anytime anyone posts about their 3.0 all the 4.0 guys have to come over and stomp on it.

i am fully aware that an identical truck to mine with a 4.0 would have probably pulled me where ever he wanted to

Well I'm not bagging on the 3.0 either. My buddy has a 3.0. It runs on 35s but its geared for it. It a quick little truck and it does well offroad. But I just have done some incredible things with my 4.0 so I guess I'm riding on a bit of a cloud. Oh and I always like the sound of the 3.0 over the 4.0. It almost sounds like a v8 with the proper exhaust.

That was total driver skill, if you got in his truck you would have done the same thing.

wider tires gives less traction on asphalt thats more weight spread out so less traction if the other guy had like 28x40 he would lose for sure.

so race cars should use skinny tires? or factory performance cars should come with 4" wide tires because it has less weight spread out?

why is it, when i went from 235/75/15s on my 93 F-150 to 33x12.50x15s i couldnt break em loose like the stock size? i thought the whole point of a wider tire was more contact patch to spread out the weight distribution more?

then u go on to say, if the other guy would have had 28x40 he would loose? do u mean the 3.0 would loose? because u just contradicted urself.

also to the OP, im not bagging on ur truck. just saying u had an advantage over him that is why u won. that is why in sled pulls all hitches need to be within x amount distance to keep things equal.
