'08 6.4 vs a cherokee SRT8

I just got back from lunch and on the way there I had a little fun with a SRT8, here's how it went down. We were both at a stop light turning left, he was directly behind me, once it turned green I pulled on out like normal and didn't think anything of racing. I got in the far lane and he got in the lane next to me, I could see in my mirror that he was going a little faster than me (around 40ish) while I was getting up to speed at around 30-35ish.

Right about the time he was in my blind spot I heard him romp on it so I did the same he was pulling a little on me all the way until about 85 when we let off. He finished probably a good 3 car lengths in front of me. It wasn't a apples to apples drag but it was fun and my first time to play with the truck since I installed my mods.

Question is, will my 6.4 typically beat a stock srt8 cherokee? I had my mini maxx with my hot damn tune on wild so I still have Hot to go but didn't think of switching it. I also have a long bed and had just filled the tank with fuel. Not sure of the year for the srt8 or if any mods were done. Maybe I will see him around again and get a stop light launch drag instead of a uneven rolling start.

What do you think?

dont quote me on this but i think stock srt8 cherokees run like real low 13s so i dont think it would be close unless you boost lunched in 4 from the light

Yeah a boosted 4wd launch is probably the only way you'll get a little jump on him before he passes again. That cherokee is at least 2-3K lbs lighter than our trucks, Especially a F350 Long Bed, I know my truck weights in at 9100lbs on a daily basis. But its always fun to race, to see what you can do.

I kept up with one of those Trailblazer SS when I ran some b-code injectors but those srt8s are a lot faster than that.

Thanks for the replies! I was actually both shocked and not shocked that I "kinda" kept with him. I've never raced anyone with this truck but I know it's a lot faster than stock, I aslo hear about a tuned 6.4L is pretty dang hard to beat. I've never weighted my truck but with a full replacment bumper front and rear, along with a loaded toolbox, full tank of fuel and some 3 step Nfab side steps, I bet I'm pretty dang heavy!

You should definitely check out the weight on your truck, I bet you'll be shocked to see what the weight is. You normally wouldn't think that a truck would weigh 4-5 tons, but Ford definitely did something right with the F-series.

I did the DPF delete and I'm running the hot damn tune on wild so I think it's around 225hp. I think it would be a good race from a dead stop if I boosted and was in 4wd, other than that I think he would still pull on me a little, those little bastards are fast!

Boosted 4wd launch will help, but then again those Cherokee SRT8's are all wheel drive. The Cherokee SRT8 forums say about a 1.8 60 foot. They are definitely fast, but only average 10-14 mpg.
