Hmmmm....I'd have to say low to mid 18s. Maybe low 19s. Believe me, they aren't very fast.

EDIT, i just saw that they weigh 3700lbs. That may knock it down to 17s.



But, My dad'* 4698lb 235hp/295tq Durango DID manage to pull a 8.6 0-60 though, which surprised the **** out of me. I would assume the D would be high 16s.

I had a 92 with the HO 4.3. I ran a 18.3 with mine. It had a cold air intake and Flowmaster muffler. That was it. My buddie had his 98 ZR2 Blazer and it ran a 18.5 with the same mods. His was faster in 0-60 though because of his 3.73 gears vs my 3.42s

my buddy has one just like yours except he has cold air and a glass pack at the 1/8th he ran a 11.47 at 3700 ft. above.
nhra accepts multiplying it by 1.55 to get the 1/4 mile but since its kinda heavy you should use 1.58 and that should get you in the ball park. this time was with full interior and a spare. we went mudding stright after. little thing is sick. and the glass pack now that we broke it doesnt sound like a v6 anywhere through the rpms
