What do you have done to your truck?

I recently ran mine but im lifted with 33x12.5x15's......

Regardless i ran a 16.6 at 80mph.....Pretty slow but for big tires its pretty good...If i had my stock tires on i could have been in the 15's

15's is pretty decent for a truck, i was thinking i would be in the 17-18's with my 33's....

But if he has a 3.slow then thats a whole nother story

I've only done intake and spacer(I know, does nothing but sound cool, oh well.) I was just curious. Besides, if I wanted a drag truck I wouldn't have bought a 4x4. lol Anyways, thanks guys. Keep on truckin'

I think my fastest time through the 1/4 mile of mud was prolly around 25 minutes but if push it could be done faster.

You know you guys might not think that the mid-high 15's a 4x4 4.0 sohc Ranger is capable of in the 1/4 is not spectacular, but when you look at the fact that many ricers spend THOUSANDS of dollars just to get in the 15s, I think it is a fantastic time for a heavy truck with a small but efficent engine. JMHO.

Yes that is insane. I don't think I could get 25 secs with my 33's and 3.73 gears.

I really need 4.56's.

How about a crank underdrive pulley?

Also, do you have a sound clip of your exhaust?

even though we all know 4x4 trucks wont be king of many stoplights*, that certainly doesnt mean all bets are off and its not worth giving it some extra power, quicker response and shifts, and driveability. these can be gained fairly easily, without making an enormous dent in your wallet. there are several key mods that provide excellent bang for your buck, across the entire spectrum of the driving experience; not just for a few "extra ponies."

feel free to shoot me a private message if you'd ever like to chat! welcome to the site!


*unless youre talking about diesel, in which case, i cant wait to see how diesel performance continues to develop

LOL.. 2 years, an engine and a blower later heaven forbid whatever else has been taken off/added.

I'm trying to remember what Denali ran in the quarter. He had a first year Tremor with a 4.0 and an aweful matic.. In the 8th mile it was like 10flat. We don't have a local ' Quarter ' track.

The only thing he did to his truck was wet-oakley seat covers.

16.04 in the 1/4 was my best with 31's and a body lift. Not setting the world on fire but for the truck its not bad. Gota give it to the 4.0's and say they do have potential. Two of by buds have chevy 5.7's and I beat both of them so its not bad for a little ranger.

What did your truck run in the 1/8th since you dont have a 1/4 close by?
