Good thought. I am not sure but even just engaging the rear locker will help the times, not sure they would do a "Car and Driver" bonsai all in 4HI launch. Some Journos will launch in 4HI and keep it to the floor then switch to 2HI to reduce parasitic drag for the last bit. Freakin uber nasty on the T-case but hey it's not their truck. My 2015 F150 5L with CAI and 3.73 rear does it mid 6's here at sea level on the Island. So I am reasonably pleased with these numbers from Ford as this bad boy is not meant as a racer. It is nice to dust off an eco wiener in a Prius, a cat lady in a Kia Soul, or just doing a good merge without holding others up LOL.
So the Hemi is behind a fair amount according to these numbers, albeit a 2017, compared to the Godzilla. This truck does have the 4.10:1 rear end ratio for maximum acceleration and towing.

Wow......... after going through my stack of stuff this information was found, and get this, dated Sept. 9!! So my order was that early. So long ago I forgot how early haha.
Sorry modified this came from the information package our Operations Manager provided and was specific to my build, as opposed to some general information on different models that would give us more numbers. They normally do not print this stuff out but being a car geek and good customer they give me a copy of everything. I would assume that would be available in something similar for the Oil burner but you may have to pester them. It shows (at the top) who was logged in to create it, the date, the dealer address, your truck basic configuration, price level and then is titled " Selected Equip & Specs"
