Sounds like a Lightning-killer. Word is even the fastest iteration ran low 13s, but with a pulley/tune high 12s were possible. But with LS power the sky is the limit.

Yea Yea I know no charity cases huh. Oh well had to try. In that case a sleeper that could run mid-high 12 and still turn a corner good enough to make a road trip fun.

How about a dark blue 1985 S-10 with an LS2 6sp. Set it up with a good all around daily driver suspension set up that would still allow a reasonable payload. Hey what luck I even know were a good candidate for you is located. It has a bit of rust but overall it is in good condition for age and miles.

How a about a daily driver, 2000- 2005 regular cab/ step side GMC or chevy with a generation III LS2 with about 450 to 500 HP!

I think a mid-12 second truck that could haul your car to and from the track would be more than respectable. Fun as hell too for when the car inevitably breaks and has to go under the knife for a bit!

4 door, or Suburban still can haul a car trailer, and run in the 12's

Like a 12.50 and still be able to drive it anywhere? Or faster? Or, slower?

I like the idea of a truck that can haul your car to the track but that you'd be able to make some passes in when the car is under the knife for some work. Obviously not going to be a crazy fast truck, but I think it could be built to run a respectable time.
