From the 1st Dakota I owned, a totaled
1993 slt ext cab completely rebuilt
salvage, to a perfect 94, to my current
perfect 96 model. The center of
gravity makes handling easy & safe.
The ride is much stronger than a s-10
or ford ranger. I luv this truck it's
safety, ride, looks, & dependability
even into 200,000 ml. Gas economy is
better in the 94 but still @ 20mpg.
Anyone who wants to own one, buy w/as
low mls, & limited transferred
ownership as possible. Mine pulls a
horse trlr, pop-up camper & small
sailboat. It is low to the ground &
easy for me to get in and out of. Stay
w/ v6, v8, and 4x4 models, no sport.
Whether joy riding, pulling or moving
it's simply the best all round vehicle
any one can own. The chrome wheels, mud
guards, bumpers, nose grill, two tone
paint, & custom wood grain dash, make
this truck easy on the eye. It's sharp
looking with a roomy comfy inside.
Turning radius is the only thing
hindering this truck.
