1999 Dodge Dakota 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


Not great gas mileage even with w/ 3.54 gears and 31 inch factory tires. Ball joints and cat @ 30,000 miles (warrantee). Speed sensor @ 140,000 miles. Everything still straight and square despite a couple of airborne episodes. 160,000 miles and just did front brake pads. Rears 60% OK. Got 2,600# payload package - fantastic - has narrowed Ram rear end and springs. Hauls wood, gravel, soil, camping stuff, farm supplies. Heavier than a full-size Chevy!

Best Features

Putting it in 4x4 and taking the guy in the Camaro on dry pavement (and any non 4x4 if it is wet). Hauling loads that the guy inthe full size can't.

Worst Features

Make a crew-cab longbed as the standard cab is a bit tight for 6'3" and can only carry 1 passenger with buckets and stick shift. I like the looks of this one better than the brand new ones.
