2000 Dodge Dakota SLT Plus 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


I bought my 00' Dakota SLT 4.7 v8 4x4 brand new in 2000.
It currently has 195k miles on it and runs great.
Doesn't burn oil, doesn't smoke, and doesn't even have an oil leak.
The only problems I 've had is 2x freeze plugs, 2x speed sensors, and one oxygen sensor.
I've pulled a Kubota 4wd tractor, a Massey Ferguson, and pulled a fullsize truck on a trailer 300 miles.
The 4WD has worked great and the limited slip rear diff. has got me out places that other 4x4's couldn't.
I've taken care of it mechanically and used semi-synthetic oil every 5k miles.
I would buy this truck all over again with question.

Best Features

4.7 v8 towing and performance, handling, and reliability. I get 70-80k miles on a set of tires.

Worst Features

Seating needs improvement, sound systems could use better speakers.
