need advice

I want to start sled pulling with my truck. What mods need to be done to sled pull? How should I go about getting started in sled pulling? Will the ifs front end take the abuse?

tie rod sleeve and pitman arm braces for the front end that is what is needed up front to make the front strong and when u pull lower the tbars as low as u can to get the cv joint as straight as posible so that there is little stress on them
for the pull use 4low and put the shifter in 3rd gear u dont have enough power for 4th
hope this helps

"Lane Frost and Freckles Brown made bull riding a sport people wanted to see, sponsors wanted to be a part of, and television wanted to show whether it was on the news or otherwise. There have always been great bull riders but when you look at those two, they weren't just bull riders, they were stars."

Front End needs some improvement, trans, and go talk to someone regarding your truck set up.... It's more important than horsepower
