I have never owned a truck but, I love my Dakota! The only thing I may have changed was to have a v-8 instead of the v-6. The V-6 seems a little lacking in power and so far, gas mileage isn't much better had I got the V-8. There is plenty of room in it and it handles great! It is a very nice truck that I really enjoy. I would definitely recommend this truck to anyone!
The way it sits up. It sits the same height as a 4WD. It has very good visibility.
The only improvement I would say would be to have another 25-50 horsepower in the V-6.
