In cold weather, these trucks should be capable of 13.7's stone stock. Mine went a best of 13.72 at 98.6, stock. As in, no tune, stock 17" tires and wheels, 87 octane, spare tire under the truck, tailgate installed and closed. NOTHING done to the truck. That was a lining-up-of-the-planets pass-everything was just right. I used 2nd prime, got a good launch (2.02 second 60 ft), and the engine had cooled down for a long time after the previous pass. I've run a couple of higher 13.7's and a bunch of 13.8's and 13.9's. Mine is a single exhaust rcsb 2wd with 3.92's.

Good run man I would like to have run the stock 17" tire & wheel front & back to see what time I could have run back when I first bought it.Those 20" tires and rims are friggin heavy.lol

My truck also weighed in at 5040 lbs. with me in it, I'm 200 lbs., 2 door, short bed, 20's, tailgate/spare tire all on truck, plus undercover cover which I would say weighs around 75 pounds.

Was at track last week finally to get some base runs, before I do some mods. Truck has cold air and diablo tune, its a reg cab short bed with factory 20's, auto with 3:92's and nothing else. It ran 15:11!!! Kinda thought it should have gone faster, but took it. Now I see you ran 13:80's and very upset. Anyone know why? Can it just be the 45 horse power difference between the 05 and 10, 11? But with my intake and tune to your stock truck I would think we'd be close to the same power. You have factory 20" rims? My truck like I said was 5040lbs with me in it. Anyone have ideas?

First off, the CAI and Canned tune aren't even close to making up the power difference between the two engines. Second, the DA, check the DA calculator at dragtimes.ca and find your track, then select the date and time you ran to see what the DA was. It will give you a corrected time to give you an idea of what it would have run in better air. Third, his times of 13.8 aren't the norm, a majority of the trucks run at least a half second slower. The 03-08 trucks don't seem to run much better then 15's until you start to get heavier into the mods. Headers, cams, converters, custom tunes, etc, then you will see the times come down. I ran a 13.8 in full track trim in my 07 QC 4x4, that was before the long tubes and converter, but guys in 4th gen trucks are doing that with bolt on's.
The best thing to do is to practice, there are things you can do to gain bits of time that will add up overall, try some drag radials on light weight 17" wheels, that will drop your times a fair bit.

totally agree with Zach^^^^ , we had to do alot of work to really get our 3rd gen's to perform. Outta the box the 4th gens have a great platform to start with. Like Zach says, do some of the easier stuff first like 17's and you should see significant improvements and when you start diving into the motor that should even be better...

x3

My RCSB 4x4 (5300lbs+)would be in the low 13's in negative DA
Intake, CatBack, Diablo 93 canned tune and lighter 17" wheels with 28" DR's
is all it took to get my 4G from mid 15's into the 13's...Best was 13.89/98.5 at 2500'+ DA
(13.4/102 with DA corrected to 0 at Dragtimes.com)
