Just steppin in to see what I can learn here about Dmax's. I've seen some pretty fast ones, that you can build pretty inexpensively. I'm a dodge guy myself, and I will tell you that right out of the gate you will be dropping 5k on a tranny if you want your truck to move. My one thing about the DMAX, is I haven't seen a cheap one for sale, I've been looking for a buddy of mine and just can't seem to find them out here in Cali. As far as top power goes, the dodges do quite well, I've seen some pics of Dmax's that have cracked their blocks at about 800hp, but I heard that isuzu is addressing the problem and that shouldn't happen. But I also don't know much about Dmaxs.
Sorry about the lengthy post and I'm not trying to hijack it. bottom line, if you spend around 18k+or- on a truck you can no problem hit 14's and possibly be able to squeeze 13's. find a truck you like first, then go from there.
