I figured he was running 6.16 according to his passenger window. None the less that's a bad ass truck, but not a big fan of gutting but I realize you need to to run those times. I seen last year at my local track a 1995 Dakota with a 440bb running 6.50 flat and he was destroying his rivals.

Friend of mine built up a CC with a 496 stroker in it and he runs low fives in the eighth: Stripped down truck with a 12 point in it. Built it relatively cheap and it runs like a raped ape. He probably has less than $15,000.00 in it.

you sure its fiberglass? it just looks like a smooth all plastic 1 piece bumper for the newer trucks. it even has the factory tow hook holes. 2000 and older was 2 piece metal bumpers. just looks like the fog holes aren't cut. you can order them that way.
