A Great Little Truck. — It's a carbon copy of the Chevy s-10, but more fuel freindly, quicker,better handling with the power rack and steering, wider, and basic v8 performance from the 3.9 v6. It get's 15 mpg with a constant load.It's like drivin' a tuner car with a bed.It basicly looks like a 1987-1995 ford pickup.Overall, it's a great truck.

Great Little Truck For Work. — I think that this is a nice truck. Has a good apperence including the bumper i styled to look like some fence since the guy i live with is a fencer he has scraps laying around and it turned out pretty cool. it has some pretty good space in the cab. Enough to have a ten inch sub each behind the seat and a 12 inch in the center. I am a little bit of a audio junky. But all in all these are great liitle trucks.

Never Seen A Better Dodge Dakota. — Drove well fast or slow. Everything worked. I had to rebuild the tranny at 160,000. It was a beautiful truck. The downside is the terrible gas mileage. It's not that big of a truck so it shouldn't need so much fuel. Overall it was a great vehicle and very comfortable for the long haul.

I Miss My Truck — Good, long lasting, and reliable. This truck now has over 370,000 km's and is still running, if not a tad bit tired. Only serious problems are rust troubles, and any general old age problems. This truck has been able to do all our farm work, some landscaping, and a tad off-roading with no troubles.

Can Do Any Just About Any Job Of A Full Size Pick-up Truck And Can Be Customized Almost All Over — its a nice little pick-up truck its roomy and will go through the mud. the gas mileage is not that great but it could be worse. its not too big not too small and has a fair amount of power the appearance meets my every expectation in a truck.

I Would Recomend This Truck To Anyone That Wants A Dependable Vehical. — I have the dodge Dakota 1995 V8 this truck will tow anything that you want it to. It is a very solid truck the only thing that i have had to replace is the radiator after 127K miles. It is a fun truck to drive it will get up and go when you need it to :). though i only get 15 MPG city on a good day.
