Great Old Truck
By FourDakotas on
1993 Dodge Dakota 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I purchased it with 165K miles two years ago. Truck had been neglected and vandalized prior, but has never failed us in 14K miles. 3.9 L still uses no oil, drives fine, just a great, dependable truck. It has lived a hard life before I bought it, and has some rust. But here in Michigan, most of the '93 S-10s and Rangers are rusted away, and the '93 Japanese pickups were rusted away and worn out years ago. Where does JD Power get these "2 of 5" mechanical ratings? These trucks are bulletproof--at least all four of mine have been. One more reason to Buy American--or at least try something other than GM junk before you send your hard earned GDP to Asia.
4X4 is handy, styling is classic, just the right size, 100% dependable, built by American workers earning respectable wages and contributing to the American economy.
Cup holder was respectable back in the day, but a little small now.
