VEHICLE STORY

2016 Ram 1500 2-Door Trim - Tradesman (work truck) 5.7 Hemi / 8-speed Automatic This truck is my daily driver with 23,000 hard miles on it now. I drive the hell out of this truck! It's been extremely reliable and takes to mods very well. Being a base model stripped out work truck, it sheds quite a bit of weight. Hemifever tune and headers really woke this thing up. Here is a video of it to give you an idea : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drCHIsLLsYE&feature=youtu.be

Trucks are cool and all, but I'm not sure I'd buy one because I want to own something fast.

You could also pick up a crate engine from Ford Performance for a fraction of the price.

Ran a 12.9 in the quarter mile today. Has much more in it, I need more tire. I put the time slips in the pictures above.

Longtubes and Y-Pipe are on. It's obnoxiously loud even when connected to the stock exhaust. Not good Lol.

Definitely a unique build - I love it! My dad's owned two Dodge Rams before... both lifted though.

Going to the strip Friday! Going to try to get a good video and time.

Have you taken it the the drag strip? I bet the single cab hemi/8 speed combo would do pretty good.

[]Chance Dobbins

Hopefully soon if the weather is good!

Here is a run I managed to get when I went down to the Mexican drag strip in the woods.

Looks like it moves out pretty good!
