        would love to see this, great PR move, and I would fully expect both sides to enhance there trucks, it's all part of the game. I say ... Bring It!

          change the tires to cogs for a cog track so tire slip isn't a factor.. ripping the frame apart is ;D

              Not very likely.

                If this comes off, there's no way in hell that both of the trucks would be bone stock, unless whomever does the test buys them off a dealer lot themselves.

                  Hell Yeah!

                  That would be something to see, regardless of which truck wins.

                  That is exactly what my dad and uncles used to every time one of them got a new truck or tractor. Hook em up and see what they can do .
                  when in doubt,.. throttle out

                    Not sure of pulling power of these brands, but every time I hit a drag strip there are a few GM diesels running insanely hard. Slowest one I've seen so far was a 4x4 doing 13.50's.

                      Saw a guy in a seriously worked Duramax truck blow up the front end during a super hard launch (on F'n MUD tires) one time. The truck transferred so much weight to the rear that the front (and 4wd was engaged) tires were barely touching the ground and toed way the hell in. The front wheels started in on this death wobble and the BLAMO...the front diff blew up, throwing chunks through the case!

                        +1 ... I don't think GM would have been able to get their hands on a 6.7L Ford truck yet, but I could be wrong.

                            I love how all the Ford fans "assume" the new Ford will be any different than the last decade of Ford diesels.
