Coming from a beginner/strictly bolt-on standpoint, i feel that the fullsizers----1/2 ton only that is----NO 3/4 OR 1 TON, could be a good choice because:

1) Usually a good rear axle and in a lot of cases a good gear ratio ideal for dragging already installed----3.73, 4.10 etc.

2) Plenty of room to fit large slicks with no mods whatsoever. 13"-14"

So, i'm thinking a shortbed with smallblock could weigh around 3500 lbs.
