My truck is actually a 1998. Since I
have the truck for a while I thought my
review can give those interested a long
term view of this vehicle. It is very
reliable, very quiet, has good power
total average mpg is 17.0. The 4x4 is
great for camping and fishing trips.
Wish it had a 3rd door in 1998 besides
that I love this truck. Almost bought a
toyota but I am glad I bought Dodge,
would do it again in a heart beat.
Great sound system, 4x4 drive is easy
to use and reliable. Quiet ride, good
mpg. Fit and finish is very good!
In 1998 a 3rd door, would buy the quad
cab for my next dakota. cup holders can
be a little better. v6 could use a
little more power around 200 hp instead
of the stock 175hp.
