Not that I'm an expert, or have ever even pulled a sled before, but because they pull in 4low is why you hear the rev limiter.

pull in 4 low, Make sure to have steering upgrades done, lower torsion bars completely, If the truck starts to get bouncy back off and stop the pull, if its before 100 feet you can restart the pull, be sure to just roll into it slowly

4low is the ay I go as well. If you got a 06+ Its best to select 3rd in manual mode so it doesnt shift higher. I selected 2nd by accident once and it defueled when it hit rev limiter
