Better do something with your lightning if that's all it can do. I ran two with my rcsb/3.92 gears and ran several ecoboos just as fast...all easy wins.They are good trucks for 4 wheeling, and they look pretty tough but they are too heavy to lay claim to the most powerful 1/2 ton. It's about a 2,000 lb disadvantage for that. And before you say anything stupid I'm surrounded by 2012 Raptor and ecoboost friends as well as 5.0 CC's. I think the Raptor is a good looking truck but pricey, non the less it's a little on the heavy side. I wouldn't mind having a rcsb 6.2 but that's not going to happen. I prefer the 6.2 over the Coyote 5.0, but I also prefer the 6.4 hemi over the 6.2...go figure. I would like to see Chrys produce a few Ram Runners to compare trucks and prices but I don't think that's going to happen either. Chrysler needs an old schooler like Ed Hamburger or Gary Stanton to at least assist Giles who know's or cares nothing about what the consumer wants. If he did there would not be encrypted pcms and 470hp 392's capable of easy 525hp numbers. Now they're going to embarrass us with a measly 570 hp SC 392, I can only imagine what's next. How's that Viper GTSR doing mister Giles...win any races yet...kill any vettes?
There is a difference betwen powerful and fastest.
The raptor is the most powerful, in that it has 21 more HP. The Ram is 2nd.
Not sure on what is fastest.
