Well I never dyno'd it but Roush claims just over 400 hp. I know it is wicked fast and the only reason it runs in the 14's is because it is a bitch to get it to hook up on the track. It is the best when you are on the highway and punch it and it throws you back in the seat.

As for the lightning I belive it was just a bit faster in the low 14's or high 13's. But I could be way off on that.

Makes sense. That's another reason i'm kind of glad I didn't buy the SRT10 RAM. all that power and no way to get it to the ground efficiently. haha.

Yep the SRT10 looks cool and all but your right I have ran against them at the track and they have the same prob no grip. I know a guy with an SRT 8 Jeep and he gets low 12's. LOL Funny as hell to watch him kick the crap out of mustangs and stuff.

yeah, I think I'm going to get those in a package deal with chrome window trim :lol:

I am NOT a fan of the wheels, but I've had a hell of a time finding something in a 22 or 24 that don't look like they are for a ghetto cruiser. At least not out of the HRE price range. :( It's either out of a rap video, or $4000+ a set :lol: Where's the shit in between, dammit! I might end up getting the OEM 20s on the 07+ Navigator (like this), they are nice looking, just wanted something with a little more "pow". I like some of the euro-styles from CEC and Kahn, but god damn...pricey.

Love the Nav, Mark..


2003 F-150 King Ranch - close to stock (Offroad Package), just an AEM Brute Force intake and Borla cat-back.. might pick up some Gibson headers soon and some bigger tires, but that's about as far as I plan on going with it. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

I have no clue how to begin looking for wheels that damn big, :lol: Good luck with it, just please get rid of those OEM bastards ASAP. :lol:

I was about to say something when I saw you post it Mark, but didn't want to rain on your parade just in case you did like them :lol: Sweet truck otherwise though :yesway:

no rain on my parade :lol: The wheels are ugly and the tires look like I could take them on a float trip.

Those KMCs aren't bad looking at all, but I think I like them much more on the Armada than I would on the Nav. I found two that I like that aren't rediculously expensive (comparatively speaking; around $3000 with tires) in 24" from Giovanna and Boss...the Giovanna is probably a better quality wheel, but I don't know if it's too rap video. Here's two photoshops:

Giovanna DBL-G 805s

Boss 330s

I think the Boss 330's would look good, but I would suggest 22's rather than 24". The larger the wheel, typical the more rap video it will look.

Those are perfect for the Navi, Mark :yesway: But can you get an affordable set?

Thanks, I agree! They are about $3600 from Saleen, which is near the limit that I wanted to spend for wheels with tires, but I've found a few on F150 groupbuys for VERY reasonable prices. Going to see if anyone makes a repro too.

Thanks...the 4th row bench seat folds down into a bed. :ndance: That bad-boy seats 10. I added a bench to the third row, replacing two of the six captain's chairs.

She's 3/4-ton with a 6.0L LQ-9 engine. Not great on gas, but let me tell you...with a van full of 8 people and all our stuff for a 4-day weekend, we towed that car through the mountains of VA and other than gas mileage you couldn't even tell there was a car on the back. I love that van.
