My coworker has an 08 Ram, I have an 07. Both are bone stock. I have 3.92 gears w/ LSD, not sure what gears he has but he doesn't have LSD. Guys at work are wanting us to do a little drag race. Who do you guys think would win? Just depends on who's quicker off the line?


a little side story: one of the other guys has a 2011 4.0 v6 Ranger (i know lol) and he was dumb enough to race the guy with the 08 HEMI. Needless to say he got smoked.

Me and the 08 guy park on each side of the Ranger guy to make him feel bad about himself lol.

In a stock vs stock I would go with the truck that has the deeper gear as long as he also has stock tires. Keep in mind 17" tires are 31" tall and usually run 3:55, were a 20" tire is 33" and usually runs a 3:92 gear. Good luck, I can see a few performance mods in your future...

I would think having a LSD would help you take the 08 off the line. Weight is a factor also.

Regular or quad cabs? Long or short beds? Wheel and tire size?

As a courtesy to the other drivers, this is what a HEMI looks like from the front.

?? Why do you think there would be a difference other than the ovbious on pieces of information you didn't provide; that being weight (qaud/reg), gear ratio, and 4x4 vs 4x2?

Should come down to driver.

sorry guys I should've been more specific on the trucks:

both are 4x2, quad cab, 6'4 beds, 20" wheels, 275/60 tires. We both weigh about 250 lbs too.

I have 3.92 gears w/ LSD. Don't know what gears he has but no LSD on his.

I have the side steps, he does not.

His truck is orange, mine is black.

With the LSD, you should be able get him off the line(better traction) and get the win as long as he's all stock with no LSD.

One way to find out. Find your track and let 'er rip!

Can we place wagers ($$$) on line for the outcome?

if we get something set up, I'll let you guys know how it went.

I might have to sneak under his truck on break and see what gears he's running...
