1998 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


The brakes have always left me with the feeling that they are not adequate for this vehicle. I have to use considerable leg strength to stop quickly. There has been a strange thump/jerk in the steering wheel ever since I have had the truck and has gotten worse over time. I have had the front end aligned and checked several times. Steering is awful, the truck wonders while going down the road but everything is within "tolerance". Power is great and fuel economy is average, 15-17 mpg.

Best Features

Power, looks, limited slip rear end. Four wheel drive activation on the fly.

Worst Features

Use the brakes from the 3/4 ton or disc's all around. Side inpact air bags for safety. Make the back seat taller or use head rest's so childrens heads don't hit the glass.
