Perfect for commuter/homeowner.
Estended cab is "just right" for most
trips and jobs. Long distance driving
is a little rough after the first 8 or
9 hours. V-6 gives more than enough
power and pretty good mileage, good
looking, very reliable. If I ever have
to let this one go, I'll buy another
Dakota to replace it.
Big enough for a "full size" person,
and most jobs & tasks, while still
being "parkable" in the subburbs.
Bumpers are strictly "for show" and
serve no real functioality. Have had
to replace rear bumper twice because of
minor parking-lot "bumps". Suggest
a "real" back bumper.
