My Pig

1997 Dodge Dakota Sport 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I name all of the vehicles I drive, and this one is appropriately named. I love this truck and hope to pass it on to my favored heir one day. :) It is fun to drive, full of torque, fast, has trailered everything I own several times over w/out complaint, and looks better than the current Dakota's. The few bad things I have had with Pig include Batteries, I put my 4th battery in this weekend, the gas mileage (avg. 14 mpg), but it is a 5.2 V-8. Oh, and when they built her, someone put an engine bearing in wrong or forgot to. Regardless, engine was rebuilt at 3,000 miles (under warranty). But, it hasn't stalled, hiccuped, or let me down since.

Best Features

Performance, especially w/Flowmaster! After 10 years the truck still looks and drives great!

Worst Features

Better QA/QC at assembly line. Better cup holders, and gas mileage
