Yup, and a better exhaust and higher stall convertor.

The Raptors have 4.10 gears, but also come with 315's that measure out to almost a 35" tire. Not to mention the fact that the Raptor only comes in extended or crew cab models.

Also, Tundras with the tow package come with 4.30 gears.

Raptors and Tundras also have real 6 speeds with better gear spacing. They are both so hard on the eyes, in my opinion.

I just like the simple fact a 5.7L R/T Hemi with 22" wheels, 4.10 rear gear, taught a 6.2L Raptor a lesson. Please, no excuses for the other brands as to how or why they are better. This R/T laid the SMACKDOWN with his 65RFE, plain and simple. Big congrats to the OP!

Please don't take what I posted as negative in regards to our Rams, hell I've got two of them and love them both. I think our disadvantage transmission wise just shows the strength of our 5.7 HEMI. I'd love to see a next generation muscle car Challenger/Barracuda at about 3500 lbs. just to shake things up bit with all those Camaro SS's and Mustang GT's.

my neighbor bought a 6.2 Raptor last year, I hooked him up with my muffler guy for a maggie muffler and that thing sounds downright beastly when he get's on it. Even with the 6.2 it's such a heavy truck to start with. he's gonna install a blower so that will be cool to see...hehe, but still will be slower than me an he knows it

Every time I get around a Raptor in my Hemi no one wants to play. I did get next to one yesterday in my GMC and he roasted my ass. We took off from a light and he looked over and thought I was racing him, I was just accelerating briskly since the light turned green as I was getting up to it, and I didn't completely stop. I took off and he comes flying by on the left. Sounded good. Was a white ext. cab. I wish I was driving my Hemi because I would have dropped the hammer when I saw him coming around me and showed him the tail lights.

I want to see one at the track here, or catch one at a redlight on one of our back hwy roads. Someday I will.
