well do you think that would be even the 600 vs. the 650 but he does have an automatic so that is a little advantage for me in a sense

Power isn't the biggest thing, weight is. A few saturdays ago we hooked a 06 dodge 5.9 quad cab to an 01 chevy 6.0 gas quad cab with almost 200,000 miles. The chevy had a welder, air compressor, and was loaded with tools and the dodge was empty. They had identical BFG's. With both trucks in 4 lo, the chevy had no trouble out pulling the dodge. So if you do pull, make shure you have all kinds of weight on the back axle.

First off, if his is an 06 its not a 6.7L. Second, traction and height is much more important. If you both hook to your hitches, and his truck is taller, you will never win. You will be pulling him down giving him more traction and he'll be lifting you giving you less traction. If you load up over your rear axle that would help. But I doubt he'll let you keep a ton of cement in your bed. Hooking up and trying to pull eachother backwards just sounds like a great way to break your truck and prove nothing. Except who had more traction.

im sorry i meant 2007 6.7 and yes he's not very bright he would let me put a ton of concrete in my truck but no i wasnt gonna pull off with him he just mentioned it and about the height thing he has a huge drop hit mine is only like 2 inches at the most so thats not gonna affect anything

hooking up proves nothing. i have hooked my other truck, an 87 toyota truck up to an F150 before and won. My toyota had a 4cyl then with 31s and open diff, F150 was a 86. Yes weight is everything but using the brake and watching for his brake lights is the key, if you hook up and he is on the brake, then ride the brake till his brake light comes off then go, your not going to pull him if he has his brakes locked. but if i was you i wouldn't even try it, unless you want a broken driveshaft or something
