93' Ranger vs 00' Frontier?

I was acting a little cocky about my Ranger today, and some how ended up challenging my dad to a tug-o-war. Its his 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew cab 3.3L V6 4x4 auto against my 1993 Ranger XL 3.0L 4x4 5 spd std. I looked at some stats on both trucks, and they are almost dead even in power etc...... does my Ranger stand a chance to win?

Hold your brakes on until he thinks he won...then let the clutch out. I know my Ranger's clutch is nothing special at all, so his auto might get you if you don't play safe.

this game has nothing to do with the truck. it depends on the drivers. Toyota has made a bunch of "tug of war" videos on youtube bull****ting ford, chevy and dodge. and your right, it does hurt the truck.

tug of wars aren't good on asphalt or concrete or something your tires won't spin on, but if it's on snow or grass it's okay because the tires spin and won't break a drive shaft.

I think the biggest part in a pull off is who starts to spin their tires first, once your tiers start to spin you loose a great amount of traction.

Is it going to be done in 2wd or 4wd? If its 4wd make sure to use 4 low and try and keep the wheel speed down for the most traction.

getting the other driver to spin their wheels and slip is key, I did a tug o war against my buddies v8 silverodo and 3 out of three, just stay in the power band, and air down your tires. it helps if the other person has no idea how to pull too.
