Capable truck minor glitches...
By we-dogee on
1998 Dodge Durango SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
I start by saying, I love this truck. I needed a vehicle that would be capable 4wd conveyance. And the "D" has shown it's grit. From the beaches of Hatteras to the muddy farms of the MD's Eastern Shore, the D has always done the job. Things have not been perfect. First there was the mysterious cracked side view mirror. A mystery until I discovered a Durango Owners Forum online and found that the 98 D had a Mirror glass temper problem. The Dis also a bit under powered electrically. It needs a better alternator from the git go. And she's known to be heavy for the smaller brake set they opted for... Alas, it may be a wiring harness that causes us to part.
Styling, 4WD capability, Cargo room
New D is ugly. Go back to a more truck like appearance, and stay away from the minivan look.
