As the OP said, you gotta remember that a diesel 3500 also weighs about 2000 pounds more than a 1500 hemi.... that's a huge difference. It takes a lot to get that kind of weight moving. But if you were to hook up a couple 8000 pound trailers to those truck and go do some pulls the Cummins would make the hemi look like it's standing still.

8200 pounds sounds a little steep to me unless it's a DRW.... Or if he had a tool box in the bed. Otherwise I'm fairly certain the SRW's are closer to 7800 pounds.

That's weird, with those mods your truck should be putting down more power. But the dyno could be off.... that's one of the main problems with dyno's that the public can run on now. They aren't calibrated properly...
