Dusted a Hemi ram
 
Is the weight difference that much between a Ram 1500 Quadcab 4x4 Hemi and a Overland Hemi?

The Ram had a loud exhaust on it. He was riding my bumper so I dropped the hammer and pulled away from him. Got stopped at a red light, side by side and the Grand walked all over him. He was about 2 lengths behind me by 70. Then he gets beside of me one more time rolling about 75 and I dusted him again. I mean I could watch the Jeep just pull and leave the Ram. After that the Ram just gave up and fell in behind me.

My wife was with me and she said are you and the ram driver mad at each other? I said no I am just having too much fun smoking him with the same engine lol.

The engines aren't the same, the Ram has 15 more HP I believe. Howeverrrrrr you have a newer overland so what HP do you have?

My old man has a Ram 1500 Daytona and I wanna see what we can do with each other at the track

The 2006-2008 models had a curb weight of around 5600 pounds I think. 345HP/375TQ. I think the Overland has a curb weight of like 4800 pounds?

Along with aerodynamics, gearing, and a pickup bed. I run those into the ground all day long.....

Yeah a bit heavy... being about 800 pounds lighter helps a lot. I think they have a 3.92 rear end in them. Still the taller gears and 15 extra HP aren't going to be enough to overcome the weight disparity.
