Just something about Dakotas
By R/T_Jarrod on


1998 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


What can I say, it is my second Dakota and I have to admit I just don't think there is another small truck out there for me. How can you beat something that drives better than anything else as far as trucks go, performs beautifully, and has enough power and torque to pull a house off of its foundations? I guess there just is nothing better than driving the best looking, best overall, small truck ever. The best thing is, you can still use it like a truck, even though its a sporty ride at that. Unlike the Ford Lightning, which can haul/tow an astonishing 1500 pounds! Wow, that is weak. Dodge reached as close to perfection as you can get with this truck.

Best Features

Lots of power and it is the best handling truck you can buy for way under $40-$50k! If you like a hearty truck sound, install a flowmaster dual exhaust system and watch the sports car guys frown with envy at the sound.

Worst Features

Maybe another 20 hp or so and a slightly higher gear ratio for better cruising mileage. But then again, I'm picky.
