Ditto.

Do the SRT8 Ram and TBSS have real frames or are they Unibody?

If Unibody, not a truck.

For the record, I do not consider the Honda Ridgeline a truck.

First things first...the Ram was an SRT10, not 8. The Cherokee is an SRT8 and I'm sure it is a unibody.

New GC is unibody, I thought the previous generation wasn't though. Not positive though. Also think the TB was BOF as well.

As far as SRT10 vs Lightning. SRT10 faster, assuming driver can shift(although they made autos but they were in the crew cab so they were heavier). As far as the Ram being underpowered and a glorified Ram, I wouldn't exactly call 500hp underpowered and well, isn't the Lightning a glorified F150.

Both cool trucks nonetheless, but I'd agree I'd rather just have the GMC over either. A lot more rare, not to mention I believe faster as well. And not to hate on the SRT10, but this video always makes me laugh. I guess I'm a terrible person.

That being said, the Lightning is going to BURN the Raptor on the street.

As a Lightningaholic since 03 I have to say the raptor is awesome but with all the extra weight I bet stock for stock the Lightning may slip by in the 1/4.

Rare is a stock Lightning so they can run 13 sec. down into the 9s and possibly 8s with crazy mods.
Mine is road course modded and gets around pretty well considering there is nothing that helps it, front/rear weight, overall weight, aero of a red brick, stock brakes die in a couple laps.

But like Tacomas we love to mod them.
One of our local Lightning members has a Raptor too!

Id take the lightning all day over the raptor (and i do like the raptors very much) but come on, lightnings are sick, not much else out there like it. il try to post some pics up when i can...im at work now

I test drove a lightning once. I couldn't imagine a raptor moving like that on the blacktop.
Congratulations and thanks guys for being the only ones to post replies relevant to the topic.

I had one of them too, same color. Add a few inches of rain to the road surface and I'll put my TBSS against any one of them. That car handled like it was on rails!

I'm pretty certain the Lightning would win (on the street obviously)

But I voted for the Raptor just cause I like it more of the 2 trucks

Now back to your regularly scheduled thread...

2 completely different vehicles...your talking a rear wheel drive truck vs a all wheel drive suv... any rear wheel drive truck is gonna be loose in the rain. depends how ya drive it. i have driven my L in torrential downpours and been fine. yes...i have driven the SS worked for chevy for 5 years. nice quick suv...but its not a truck its a SUV and no where compares to a Lightning


if we are comparing any kind of car now....my STi handled like it was on rails...and id take that over the SS....lol (faster too )
