First let me tell you what I have, a 2001 1500 4x4 with a manual 5.2. It is stock so far with few exceptions (sprayed nerf bars and bed, stereo and 285/75/16 on new wheels). I read this forum which is dedicated to offroading and the forum on dodgetrucks.org which seems to be dedicated to speed and wonder why can't you have the best of both world. What I want is a fast truck that can beat my boss's 2000 chevy in the quarter mile and also go through a mud hole or over a sand dune without getting stuck. I would love to put some 315's on but I would need new gears (4.56's) but that would limit my max speed to 75 mph from what I have read. My question is, can I have both or do I need to quit dreaming and realize you have to pick one or the other?
