D&a's Dakota — It's a solid truck, ours has a 5.2 V8 and has more then enough power to move it where it has to go. the one bad thing is it sits too low and can get hung up in snow alittle too easy

178,000 Miles & Just Getting Started — This is a great midsize pickup. I you are like me and wanted a highway vehicle with the versatility of a pickup but you don't tow very often, this truck is a perfect fit. Top notch ride quality, engine performance, and gas mileage (for a pickup) 20 mpg w/3.9L v6.

Magnum 318 Dodge Dakota — That has to be the top five if not the best Dakota they ever made. It had a 318 Magnum. That thing had more horses then i had brain cells....But when your in high school, that does not take much. I will own another one again some day.

The Primer Duece — Its stock but fast for a v6 i have a 318 v8 im building for it it handles like pump truck but thats alright i love a challenge. The body needs to be finshed i need new front fenders rear quaters and a new front bumper then i can paint it. It gets alright gas mileage when your not in the throttle. I dont know about you but i love to drive this my truck i love taking off from a stop with the driver side tire wanting to pick up and sqicking first second and third.
