Of course it all depends on weather, driver, etc. but the believable numbers seem to be mid to high 13's. Some places could get better numbers (e.g. fall in New England), while some could be far worse (summer in Phoenix). These trucks seem very susceptible to varying conditions...
Location: Cuttin' Heads with Jack Butler at the CrossRoads!
Last week, I was only able to manage a 14.30 @ 97mph. That was in high 80deg with high humidity. Plus the track is notorious for bad prep, so no traction off the line. Most everyone that night seemed to be off by .3-.5.
My bone stock '01 did: 13.896 @ 99.8. I ran it for the first time at a very *****y track where you have to actually roll off the line for about 2 seconds then gun it. And, this track is NEVER prepped. Traction was definitely a problem. I truly think that i get better traction on the street than at this track. I'm sure if i was at a great track, that was actually prepped before and during runs, i would pull a 13.6xx.
The best I did in bad conditions was 14.5 @ about 95. We're talking 100 degrees with high humidity. I had a guy at the Heat Wave car show down in Austin this past weekend tell me that his friend's dad pulled a 12.8 on a stock '01. I guess they forgot to start the clock at the green on that run, because a stock '01 will not put up those numbers!! You need some mods to go there!

My 01 L ran a 13.9 at 98.8 with 248 miles on the odometer and 95 degree weather with 90% humidity. Best short time was a 2.14 . Weather always hot here in Miami. Lots of mods coming soon including N2O so not that worried about hot days. Ha Ha

My first and only time to the track gave times very similar to some of the times above.......13.83 @ 99.97. Air was ok, about 70, but the track was greasy, messy and slick. My stock truck had around 5,000 miles on it when we went to the track.
Ford claims 13.9 at 100mph. The magazine article you refer to said that they had 50 degree air that day.... I think my truck would run that time in that kind of oxygen-rich environment.
