Pros

I have not had very many problems with my truck so far, other than the fuel filter, and hub assembly.

Cons

I only get about 12mpg on the highway, and around 8mpg otherwise.

Awesome! — The only thing that i do not like about my truck is the paint job, someone that had it before i owned it did not get a very good paint job on it, it has two chips of black paint to red paint underneath.

Needs Work — performance is NOT were it could be but cant afford to re-do. appearance could need a new paint job. Sucks on gas mileage, needs a lot of work. Excellent sound system. need a new tranny and engine but cant afford it at the moment.

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.

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

93' Dodge Dakota — I bought my truck with a 144 thousand on it with no transfer case in it. It was a damn good buy in my mind cuz for a 93 dakota with a 144 on it and not a spec of rust on it, its doin damn good so far. Haven't had it all that long but its a great work truck and a great hunting truck.
