Crawl off between PSD and Cummins...gues who won?

My brother and I had a crawl off toady in 4 low, 1st gear to see who was slower. We let them coast down a hill and he flew by me. (I'd say he was traveling 2-4 mph faster than me).

I guess we could have just looked up the relative gear ratios but it was funner this way.

I wonder what trhe neghbors thought, these two big ass trucks taking up the whole residential street rumbling and trannys humming rolling down a hill

I WON! (Dodge)

His is an auto though and I have a 6 speed.

Here is our trucks...

That doesn't sound like a fair crawl off try doing that with a 6 spd vs a 6 spd and I think the ford will come out on top. Just my .02 cents

It is easy enough to find out. Look up the numbers on the trannies and the tcase. We both had 4.10s so that is moot.

I dont know about fair, all I know is...

MY TRUCK IS SLOWER IN 4 LO NANANABOOBOO!!!

The ford automatics don't have that granny low like the 6 spd does. But if you would like to come out here we can find out which crawls slower since mine is a 6 spd

What kind of "crawl off" is down hill?


How about you try it again, on level ground, or with a slight grade, and see what happens

The only thing a downhill crawl off tests is compression braking of the engine (kinda different for the PSD) - and by definition favors a manual tranny over the auto...

No, go for a slight uphill grade, same RPM....
