2000 Dodge Dakota SLT Plus 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I have been the sole owner of this truck and have loved driving it. It performs EXCELLENT off-road with the 4.7L engine. I have been in many questionable situations off-road and it has pulled me through with no issues at all. As a daily driver it has also been very reliable with good gas mileage considering it's a V8. Plenty of get up and go to get on the freeway or around town.
Engine power, exhaust sound, ground clearance, ease of driving, visibility, and good gas mileage (18-20 hwy).
Overload springs would be nice for heavy loads. The braking is a bit spongy, disc brakes in the back would help.
