Both well into the 200's with power with a nice torque band and plenty of room for improvement. They take well to simple exhaust and intake upgrades. Not impossible to have a midsized truck with 300+whp on the stock motor with out much work.
I can believe it. I would be extremely surprised if a 4.0 ranger could beat a v8 dakota.

Yep, out near COur D' Alene this last week I was doing 70 up this crappy 5 or 6% hill right outside of town.. was cruising along right at 70 then it started slowing down a bit... noticed I was about to pass one of the new V8 Dakota's and just kept on keeping at 70.. well, this young lady in the drivers seat of taht dakota liked to play with me... I was about to pass and she tapped the gas abit and gained a quick 10mph.. I was about to pass yet again then she did it again - those things have some power, I could see her smiling when I finally downshifted and gave it some gas to get past her -laughs- all within 70-80mph up a hill.. I wish I had a v8 :-(

when I had stock tires, this little integra with a bunch of body mods, and a coffee can muffler, did the same thing to me at a light, reving and power braking. so we took off from the light, I pulled him by a good 3 car lengths by the time we were around my speed limiter, then I let off and dropped back down to the speed limit. he didn't. went a round the next bend and there was a speed trap and the cop grabbed the integral. turned in to a real bad day for him.

why do you even feel the need to fuel their stupidy? i can't tell you how many ricers pump on me on a regular basis in the corvette, all it takes to shut them up is to give them a nice little half throttle rev thru the flowmasters, and that usually shuts them up, and if it don't, i just laugh at them

X2 (minus the corvette lol) i often get the usuall dinks that try and get me to race them and i dont know why, its not like im driving a sports car. i like to pretend like im going to race them and when the light turns green they go racing off and look dumb and i just go on my merry way. i dont need to race them to make them look stupid, they do a good enough job at that on there own with there big wings, weedwacker sounding exhaust, dumb fake carbon fiber and flashy graphics down the side of there cars.

Well, the only races Matt has won have been against Wranglers while racing through a 1/4 miles boulder filled canyon. So anything street-wise he gets uber jealous at and condones.

No one is a moron. Except Lazler who still hasnt replied to my quote to his original comment. And by calling Lazler a moron I'm only joking, so, I hope none of you hissy-fit throwing butt-waffles take this the wrong way.

By the way, I pwned a 98-00'(I think thats the year) ZR2 today.....from a dead stop to 55. Can I get a cookie now?

I never race my truck. I'm scared to rev past 4000.

On the other hand. I raped the hell out of a saleen mustang convertible Friday, twice.
