Could give you a more accurate reading by removing human relay response time.
I tried it with "CT speedometer", it was horribly inaccurate. I don't know if there is a better app out there then that one, but, I definitely wouldn't trust that one. 10.6 sec.'s? Second try yielded 9.8. Really bad!

Definitely! I bet that thing screams.

As long as you keep the steering straight, it shouldn't hurt to lock the diff. It turns off automatically above a specific speed anyway

I would have liked to had found a 3.73.

But, I'm definitely happy with 3.55EL

Gopherman, I have the same set up as you (5.0, 3.31) but with a SCAB, wonder if there'd be any difference between a SCAB and a SCREW?

I timed the video 0 - 60 at right between 6.5 - 6.8 second on the 3 views I did, not bad

Well, I have a 3.73 now. But as for a difference between the scab and screw, I'd think the 100-200 lbs could shave .1 to .2 off that time if all conditions were equal.

Then again...there are some 3.31's the will do 0-60 in low 6's, some 3.73's in the mid 6's. On the flip side, there are some 3.31's in the 7's, and some 3.73's in the high 5's. It's so variable depending on fuel, weather conditions, tires, 2WD vs. 4WD, equipment, people, etc.

As much as it's cool these trucks are quick...and they are. I'm fairly tame and rarely even go past 2500 RPM (at least with my truck). They aren't meant to be fast...they just need to be able to work and be comfortable while doing it.

With that being said...the roar around 5K makes me want to floor it all the time , but I am determined to not do it unless I have to.

Same here...except that I love to get on it. Though I try not to most of the time. easy on, easy off...helps the mpgs and is a little smoother of a ride. But I love being able to get on it hard and hear that coyote...
