1996 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Regular Cab SB


Received this truck after wrapping a Toyota around a telephone pole... This truck is amazing with its reliability. Turn the key and it starts right up. Gets me to work 5 days a week and hauls drywall, mulch or gravel the other 2. The worst I have had to do is complete brakes 3 years ago. Engine is strong, tranny tight, gets me where I need to be. Only dings, dents or rust is what I've caused. I'll drive this baby until the wheels fall of. Probably will subsidize her with a new sedan here in a month or two but its about time. 12 years and still running strong!

Best Features

Reliability, Payload, did I mention the reliability? Cost of ownership is negligible at worst...

Worst Features

Headliner failed, cup holders can be a kneebanger (if that's the worst, who cares..)
