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!!!
The only thing I would like to have
seen improved was the gas millage.
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
I had every avalible toy on my 1992 V-
8. And most aftermarket toys also.
What can I say? Who could build a
better truck. NO ONE!!!!!!
None really. Dodge hit the nail on the
head with the Dakota
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!
