M-715 & Tacoma drag race

WOW! 5/4 ton Jeep almost runs down a Yota!
Is this BAD or WHAT??

Notes from the clip:
"Racing my 1967 Kaiser M-715 military jeep against my 2006 Tacoma DoubleCab at ...Firebird Raceway in Phoenix.
The M-715 was running a very early engine tune but still managed a 50' burnout at launch and ran pretty strong.
Unfortunately the burnout gave the Tacoma a considerable lead from the start and the M-715 was not able to overtake it.
The M-715 weighs almost TWICE what the Tacoma does and runs 40" tires.
The Tacoma was bone-stock other than 275/60-18 Michelin Pilot LTX tires and ran 15.6 in the quarter."

It was suggested that if the 'yota ran 15.6, then the Jeep must have been near 16 seconds flat!
That's haul'n for something that big on 40's!!!

So, how would a GT Rustang or Z28 owner feel if his got his clock cleaned from a 5/4 ton Jeep truck rolling on 40's?
I think that would be humiliating! I love it!

OH...and BTW...Full Size Jeeps RULE! HAHAHAHA
