Very easy when your spinning street tires a wet greasy hard pack. I also said with my 4.9 straight six in low gear. You may not have any idea what the 300 is capable of. You gotta have a 5.8 or better to out pull it. All I had to do was pull it far enough to get to dry hard pack. About 30ft. It wasn't buried. You nees to pull some youtube vids on the 300 tug o wars.

I had a 300 inline six but this 4.6 has as much grunt if not more

First time I've heard that. That's great.

Actually it's quite possible. Rolling weight is a lot different than draggin something on the ground. Men have been known to tow planes by themselves. We used to jump start our MM Jet Star tractor with our Honda Foreman 400...if you have enough traction it doesn't take much to get something rolling.


With that said, I think I'm going to pull the sled in 3rd low.

Have you tried 3rd low yet? I'm curious to see how well you do. My brother runs a chevy super stock pull truck and I can tell you the guy who has the most wheel speed will normally win so the higher the gear you run the better so long as you have enough power to pull that gear. The guys that do most of the winning run 18 to 20 mph. Also they play with tire pressures all the time. less air in the front tires, no Idea what it would be in a stock truck.
