2000 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB
I purchased this R/T on Ebay almost one year ago. Replaced the idler pulley,v-belt, and water pump. Overall, the truck turns heads everywhere I go. Sounds excellent through factory single exhaust (not sure what genius put single exhaust on a performance truck). The truck is fun to drive. Fuel economy is about 14 in the city and 17 on the highway. Truck has a 5.9 v-8 and only produces 250hp. Most hondas with a couple of mods can beat me on any given day. Looks mean, sounds mean, feels mean. Stock with k&n filter runs high 14's in quarter mile.
Looks,Sound,Torque. Handles like a dream car(can take 30 mph curves at 50 with little effort). Does not like bumpy roads.
Eliminate rev limiter on trans(wont shift from 1 to 2 umless you back off of gas pedal). Add dual exhaust/headers. More exclusive r/t items. Club cab should have third door for easy access.
