What's you Quarter time/trap? ...or is it only an 1/8th mile track?
Do you have a dedicated set of track tires too? M/T's freaking Rock!

I've used both 2WD and 4-Auto (AWD), never 4 High (Lock)
it really depends on track prep and how warm the track surface is.

With my Drag Radials I usually get an excellent hookup at launch in 2WD.

My best quarter in AWD when track prep isnt as good, is 14.001, my best in 2wd, as posted above is 13.89 a bit quicker.

(yes I have matching Drag Tires up front too )

My tranny wouldn't shift into 2nd unless esp was on and it was making som crazy noises at the track so i pulled it off once i got home. Best i ran tonight was 9.14 with terrible shifts.

Hey noticed you pulled your bumper insert welcome to the club!!! I run a hose from my intake down to the opening of the passenger side section of it for some extra ram air. Also where did you get those badges?

Yup, in the process of doing my Ram Air mod too to help out my Airaid.
It looks SO much better open without that fake grill in there...that doesn't match the black Honeycomb anyway.
I think its better to let the airflow through for engine bay circulation instead of blocking it all with a fake non-functional grill

Badges are from http://www.billetbadges.com/

I've got some better pics in my photo-whore thread here:

..its a 4x4 Duh! haha

The 17"x 9" Moto Metal wheels I needed only came as a set of 4 , dealer would not break up the set, so I had to buy all 4 or have none.
The M/T DR's were a bargain anyway...at half the price of my Grapplers, so I went back for two more and decided I would just rotate them to extend their life.

Turned out to be a good investment because track prep is not always ideal and I can flip it into AWD for a flawless launch out of the hole when the track is cold.
With the auto 4wd setting (works just like AWD) there's no need for a mechanical disengage after launch. Some Ram 4x4's with 4WD Lock Hi only don't have that luxury and its hard to get the transfercase to fully disengage and shift back to 2wd on the fly when the drivetrain is still loaded mid run.

I have a 3.55:1 open rear diff so peg-legging a launch with an effective gear ratio of 4.30:1 (33" tires down to a 27") can be a handicap at times.
My track setup is super light (60lbs) compared to my 20's/Grappler's (90lbs), So about -120lbs really helps. Lighter weight and less rolling mass/resistance =win/win.

Besides, with a 4x4 with the AWD option I'm all set for adding a Magnacharger or 100 shot of Nitrous and not have to worry about traction issues at all at Full throttle out of the hole.

They look pretty darn intimidating at the track and the lower height all around drops my 2/3 Drop Kit to more like a 5/6 (for better aerodynamics).
