well i decided that even though this truck weighs alot! (im not taking out anything everything will stay as drivin) i just have to know what it can do cause i havent seen anyone run a 4x4 crew cab anywhere yet. and thats probably for a good reason but i still wanna know wish me luck videos should be done by tomorrow

nope all night i ran with traction control on 4x4 on and tow/haul on. now that i think of it i should of turned the traction control off but i was bracket racing and trying to stay consistent. but the i just put it in 3rd and gave it all the gas i could lol... but i think i can run better because my wife filled up the truck 2 days before. so i was running with a 1/2 tank of 89, and maybe drop the tailgate and spare just to see what it can do lol This message has been edited.

Next time try traction control off
I had the chance to run a 2011 4.7 2wd QC down the 1/8 track an traction control off made a substantial difference like .4-.5 quicker with TC off.
I was running brackets too and TM off wasn't really coming up with that much variance due to spinning. I just couldn't cut a good light with the 4.7 being so used to my hemi truck.
