Great old truck!

Vehicle: 1992 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB

I've had this truck a long time...and it's been great! Fun to drive ...dependable, strong engine, lots of power. I have over 240,000 miles on the original engine and aside from blowing a little smoke from worn rings...it hasn't missed a beat. The paint has always been a problem ...it looks a little rough....but I'd never get rid of it, it runs waaaaay to good! It could be better on gas mileage, but with the standard shift....it's not too bad. I'd recommend one to anyone lucky enough to find one.

I bought this truck when it had 216,000 miles on it. I only paid $850. I figured i would put a motor in it in a few months but it ran great for two years and then I ended up selling it for $1200.(I did put rims and a paint job on it)This truck was great. I want it back!!If you have on keep it!!!

I have owned 2 1992 Dodge Dakotas both sports and both short box. Regret loosing both of them. First one was a V-6 that I lost to a roll over accedent and the second was a V-8 that I traded in (Stupid!!!!) The V-6 was decent on gas and the V-8 what can I say. You dont buy a V-8 with worrys about MPG




Perfect truck

I bought my truck for the simple fact that it has a V8 in a little truck, I wanted a little hotrod and I got one. This truck runs great looks perfect and has never let me down! The only bad thing is it has a small gas tank so in town driving must be kept to a minimum!

I am looking to buy a used Dakota, ranger or S-10 in the 1992-1993 range. I like to Dakota better but it seems to be a bit more expensive. Is there any thing I need to watch out for in these older D...
