2000 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought this used with 32,000 miles on it. It's the 2000 Dakota SLT V8 4.7, all time 4x4 w/locking diffs. I like the all-time 4x4 because it grabs around corners, but you loose acceleration when starting from stopped position. This is a good truck as stock. OK power, and looks great. It will get you anywhere. A little costly on the gas. This truck with modifications is great. I changed air intake,put in headers, cat-backs, and a mod-chip, and it's STRONG! Also get 1-2 miles per gallon more, when I'm not flooring it. There's a new magnum V8 HO engine in the Dakotas that puts out more power. I would look into a Dakota with this engine if I was looking to buy.

Best Features

This truck is good looking. It's strong. There are multiple modifications that can be done to the truck that require little work.

Worst Features

The brake system is pretty bad. I don't like the ABS on it, and the brake rotors keep warping. Have to grind them 2 times a year. Gas economy is a little poor as a stock truck.
