depends on your truck, clutch type double disc for sure, how many hooks you want out of your clutch higher gear usually means more heat (slipping) , how heavy the sled is, some farm shows and local pulls the sled is prety light and county fairs w/ big pocket pusues bring the big boys and big weight and drop pan, type of surface loose, tight, dry, wet, truck set up (any movement other than forward takes power away like hopping even as little as rear end squating) equals les time to get on top of turbo and most importantly the driver skills.

At any rate nuff jabber i use 3rd low and 4 low mostly i used hi 1 once on a real sloppy mud basically with light sled most guys were taking it 300 plus with floating finish. i try to get off the clutch in 3 seconds or less. i hope this helps

He is running a auto tranny.

I think most auto guys in a dodge run 1st and second low range.

Tire size comes into play, the high the better. Stick: start in the highest gear you can. Auto: shift till you drag the motor down. There is a DuraMax that pulls with us that shifts 3 times.

Most guys around here with autos let the tranny shift for them. It nows when to shift don't worry about it and concentrate on the truck and the track.
