Went playing in the mud with my truck today! I got a few pics. Its probably the dirtiest my truck has ever been besides in the winter. Also my friends 97 f150 and anothers 96 f150. I pulled off with the maroon one and won 2 out of 3. I normally never pull off because I don't like to beat up my truck, but I had to prove them wrong, because they thought I would loose

How do you guys do pull offs there? We usually hook up a heavy log chain between the two trucks and play kinda a tug a war thing.

I normally don't just do pull offs. This is only the second time I ever pulled off, I do them upmy camp. We used a tow strap I had, hooked to each others hitches. Yeah just play tug a war, I pulled him 2 times a few inches. We did it on hard dirt, I really didn't want to do it on pavement.
