    The SRTs have more power than the lightning, but they cant hook up worth a shit. I also think the Lightning looks better, and the suede interior was kinda nice. I like both trucks a lot, but i'd pick the Lightning myself.

    Maybe the quad cab automatic, but the 6speed reg cabs are just horsepower with no traction.

    I drove both and chose the Lightning...

    To me the L was just an all around better vehicle, 4 years and a "few" mods later, I still :love: my L every time I drive it...

    I am on my second L right now. I remember reading the L boards when the ram came out. The stock single cab ram is faster than a stock L, but dollar for HP the L was a better deal at the time. (I dont have a clue about pricing now) You can easily make an L faster than the ram with a CAI, pulley and good tune. Plus, nothing beats hearing the SC scream when you put the pedal to the floor.

  15. Even the 1999-2000 L's will make the SRT-10 look like a lil bitch.

    Lightning FTW. Less power, less money, and faster + better mod market.
