Funny thing is it still took it 12.8 sec to get to 60mph. 5.7'* only had 185hp back then. Not enough to mtivate a 3 ton vehicle.

Better be sure you're aware of your company'* policy regarding use of their vehicle for personal use. If they don't want you using it for other than work related tasks, I wouldn't go too crazy about what you do with your personal vehicles.
