Can trucks be straight line fast?

Now I know like the Ford Lighting and the RAM SRT-10 are very fast and whatever, but Ive never really known anything about trucks. I have pictures of this one guy who guys to my school, his truck looks like complete *** with everything taken out and the weird suspension (pics below). With a stripped down trucks like this one and with some engine mods....can they be fast? Or can any trucks really be made fast 1/4 mile wise (13 seconds or better)

I don't think that's a drag suspension...


Yeah Trucks can be fast (sub 13s) and a few people have done it. I'm not sure how, Rebel could probably help you with that though.

Obviously, anything can be fast, but Im wondering if they can be made fast reasonably. For sub-5k I guess, without any serious aftermarket F/I

Below 5k? Not sure about that, but someone posted a video of a guy with a Silverado that ran 10s.

im guessing in a truck( short box std cab, 5speed 350ci) you could make it run 13's for under 5G's in mods.

That is a badass truck. Got any pics of it just sitting on the ground normally, without the carjacks under it?

power strokes and cummins rule, my friend his uncle has Dodge Ram 2500 with a cummins, after he put a power chip in it he gained like 100HP and like 250ft/lbs/tq he always lays into it and he has custom side dual exhaust that is like the old Corvetes and smoke just ROLLS out of them! one time he just smashed in the gas and I couldn't see the road infront of me!

Anything can be fast in a straightline it's just money that's the restriction. Some trucks such as diesels can be made faster easier.

That looks like a rock crawler or something, maybe an offroad rally truck.
