Hah that's cool. How does it work? By that I mean like...what does 241 feet mean. Does it get harder as you go further?

I'm kind of shocked that some of you posters don't know what truck pulling is, or how the sled works. I guess I'm more hillbilly than I thought lol

^^I was kinda thinking the same thing. If you live around here and never seen a truck/tractor pull you're dead or not born

4L guaranteed. Diesel trucks pull in 4L, so I'll guarantee that that Ranger did haha Otherwise he'd have sat there and toasted the transmission.. 4L and 1st gear. And yes, I agree, trans temps had to be insane.

I still wonder how light the sled was... 10k lbs? It wasn't no 30-40k+ like you'd see in a street diesel class.
