This Truck HAULS!
By Bill C on


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


I feel fortunate that this has been a pretty reliable (American) hauler. Fuel pump (in tank) failed under warranty and the differential gears were unnecessarily replaced in an attempt to fix a "clunk" noise when braking hard and turning into a drive (apron). Other than that, routine maintenance. I'm 6'2" tall and the seats fit great. Pulls a car hauler and sometimes heavy loads of gravel, dirt, etc. No problem. The 5.9L engine is a old school, but very dependable one. Lots of grunt. I love my "Art-eee" truck.

Best Features

Engine performance & sound. Interior comfort (seats). Corners like it's on rails. Dependable. Great styling. Min. Slip differential.

Worst Features

Front brakes could last longer. A-pillar blocks vision on left hand "sweepers." Yup, you guessed it.. it has "an appetite" for gas... Could maybe use a "taller" overdrive.
