    Anything that breaks is replaceable.

    lil over a year ago a guy i know challenged my burban to a tug of war with his nissan 4x4 with 35"s on it on pavement.
    he never had a chance.
    just be sure to use a strong connection
    goodluck

    And I thought I was the only idiot that has done this with a Suburban. I pulled off with a '00 Super Duty Powerstroke 5 speed with my '86 K20 Suburban and won. Even with the 150k mile engine. My key to sucess was the auto trans. When he shifted his 5 speed. I gained ground.

    pretty much samething here,his mistake was popping the clutch and getting his tires spinning,i was only in 2wheel 1st and holding the brake.and as soon as he spun i just got off the brake and drove away with him.even with his brakes locked he didnt slow down any.
    thought about taking him around the block but was worried about the tow strap.good thing i did too strap was about 4 inchs stretched in the middle.not to bad for 165k,bone stock and rusted like swiss cheese.but then again it was just a little nissan,kinda like pickin on a kid,huh
    goodluck

    I've always wanted to do that with my truck, but always feared hurting the transmission... perhaps after I get my K20 454-ized, and dump a stronger transmission behind it, I'll think about it.
