Steve's clip just proves the obvious...GM kicks Ford's *ss. Then again, I do love the early to mid 90s Broncos. I want to get a hold of one of them to turn into a mean 4x4 rig.... That'll come after I build my Sub up... But I digress, GO CHEVY!!!! :rofl::lol::party:

I do like chevy/gmc better than ford but it seems to me that the ford had a slight tire disadvantage.:frown: The ford seemed to have regular or maybe all terrain tires but the GMC had a set of mondo-squabbler mudd knobies....or did i just dream it?:meuh:

Well, I'm sure that these guys came ready for combat, but these head-to-head pulls have a lot to do with tires, gearing, engine mods, driving style, fuel, etc. The GMC did appear to have some mud/dirt/sand tires though.

What does it prove? Get some good good friends, too much alcohol and a couple of trucks and you too can burn up your engine.

** The part of the video that gets me is right after the 2nd pull, in the foreground you can see a woman video taping, then when the Ford loses, she stops moving and drops her arms to her side. Wonder if she's gonna tear into her man for losin? lol :neutral:

I can remember back in highschool a good buddy saying that my GMC safari van was a piece of crap.:mad: He stated that his mitsubishi mighty max pickup would mop the floor up with my van.(mainly because he had 27 inch BFG all terrains) (I had 275-60-15 Hoosiers street tires) So we tied the vehicles up and the ole GMC had fun dragging him across a gravel lot.:na: SO he says his truck will do it in reverse....so here we go again....and this time the GMC drags him into a mud puddle and covers the little red truck completly and also throws a rock at it's winshield for good measure:great:
I still pick on him to this day about that:rofl:

I think she took it pretty well. What else is she going to do? Maybe shed a tear? That would be hysterical! Remember, it's all fun and games until someone's boyfriend's Ford truck gets pulled across town by a GMC.

I'm a nuetral guy, I currently own both brands. I'd have to agree the ford had a tire disadvantage. in a pullin contest traction and gearing would be everything. I'd also have to agree if either of them cared at all about their trucks they wouldn't be doing this to them!

They hate their turcks...

When I was in high school I saw a dry pavement truck pull. The Ford was a 3/4 ton a 429 and the Chevy was a half ton with a 350. The ford had better tires too.

The Chevy was pulled back but not easily. The Chevy was badly damaged. noticeable bent frame, grinding rear axle, and some engine issues.

My friend owned the Ford and he told me that it was never quite the same after that. He told me thought its frame was bent too because it didn't drive straight down the road after that. The transmission needed to be rebuilt because it was slipping under load.

Don't do this to any truck you want to keep.

Pulling has to be done right......
Back in the day, we used our '85 3/4 ton 'Burban to 4 wheel a lot. I remember a time when 2 trucks were stuck side by side and we hooked up both n drug'em out at the same time. We used to joke, I pulled out the Chevy's, my wife pulled the Fords.....LOL No dis'ing the Fords though, I've owned more than a few and was happy with all.
Cool vid, but I'd never do it to a truck that wasnt built just for that type of fun......
