90 ft? What are other rigs similar to yours (weight/engine/setup) running?

I forget what your gears are but I'm sure changing them out to run a higher rpm could help get farther.

as far as similar rigs in my class, it could be anything from blown 460 f350 to a little 4 banger yota. it goes by tire size, my class is 36-44. 90ft might not sound far but trust me, this isnt any normal mud pit.

im running 5.14 gears, cant go much steeper. i need a bigger motor hands down..

i towed it with a 08 f250 6.4. im impressed every time i hook something to the back of that truck!

<TX>TORKiT, no its not a trailer queen. it will be on the road here quickly.

thanks everyone for the comments! the truck held up perfectly, and i had a great time. only downer of the day is i only got one run in.

to give you an idea of how deep "the trench" is, this is my buddies rig we built. these were taken at the May event. he made it 283ft out of 300ft, and today he made it 94ft.







and heres a picture of the tench from the finish line. look at the humps you have to get over at the start.
