2000 Dodge Dakota R/T Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


Excellent truck has the handling,
acceleration & still can tow a trailer
or haul lumber. 5.9 is just brute
torque. No high tech here, just good
ol'pushrods. Handles great. Rear axle
gets a little upset over stutter bumps.
ABS works well but traction control
would be a welcome feature when you
aren't trying to toss the ass end out
while turning. Very comfortable on long
rides & good interior ergonomics...

Best Features

Torque! & limited slip diff.

Worst Features

A little more sophistication on the horsepower delivery & some more hp's could be delivered out of 5.9! Honda's S2000 2.0L produced 240hp??? Time for a massaged 4.7 in the R/T's
