    everyone should know your truck pulls better when you pull in reverse and have it hooked to the front, not the back

    Well not nessecarily, you have alot more weight on your front axle giving you better traction up front because of the weight of both the engine and the plow. When you pull from the back of the truck it pulls down on the back of the truck lifting the front slightly, this causes traction problems. Pulling from the front of the vehical is the reason my friend thinks his POS blazer is BA because he pulled out his dads big dump truck with it. It all about weight, If you had a crap load of weight in the back then it doesnt really matter.

    Try it some time you will be surprised you wont even have to give it much throttle. But you gotta diesel right? so theres no weight on ur front axle :rolleyes: so it might not work to well

    Dude pulling from the front with the truck in reverse is bad...reverse is your weakest gear in the tranny. Always pull from the rear when possible in four low with the auto in 1.

    Thats what i was always told too. Reverse isn't made to put a huge amount of weight and tugging on..
