1995 Dodge Dakota SLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I had bought the truck with 114,600 miles on it, and now have a lil over 153,900. All I had to do with it was replace the battery, and the radiator. Though now it is due for an alignment. Overall though this truck has had the snot worked out of it by me, and the previous owner. It is fitted with the Reese 3/4 hitch so it can manage 7500 lbs though I wouldn't attempt this without making sure yours is properly prepared for it. Mine has built with the tow package and 42rh trans giving it the towing ability. Off road the truck doesn't know the word stuck and has pulled other trucks w/trailers out of soft sand with a/t tires. I'm debating about fixing up this one, or getting another, ill probably fix

Best Features

Solid feel, ride quality, performance, off road characteristics, ease of maintenance, I pretty much love the whole truck, and have wanted one similar to this for several years prior

Worst Features

Not really much that can be improved. Most of the things wrong with mine are just due to the age, and the way it was used. Sure the carpet could use a change, and the suspension squeaks, but I'm sure you'd do the same if you worked the same way
