Range rovers are sexy whips

22.5's weigh a ton I wouldnt waste the fuel racing that one...
A tuned 6.4 ford with deletes can make 575-600hp depending on the tune. That is approximately double what a stock ram will put down on a dyno. The ford would have to weigh over 9000lbs for me to have a better power/weight ratio. Crew cab 6.4's have been in the 12's with a tune only. Even if you added a full second for the weight of the 22.5's he'd still likely edge out all but the quickest stock rams. Being able to launch under boost in 4wd is a definite advantage.
It should be a pretty close race.
