when i had my '00 ranger, a friend of mine wrecked his '00 expedition with only 3,000 miles on it, and i wanted to do this swap. i didn't have the time to do it, or the knowledge to do it, for that matter.
Considering there's virtually no weight over the rear to facilitate a strong launch, that's a damn good time. Once real drivers (not journalists) get behind the wheel and learn how to properly launch the truck it will be well within the 12's or even 11's.
That may not ever see production, but for anyone who wants to build one themselves, they just showed that it's possible and even gave away the majority of the buildlist.
