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.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Anonymous bought one because:

Needed a mid size truck, this truck has been exceptional. Easy to maintain, reasonably good gas miliage, expected comfort. I have over 200,000 miles on it and it still has plenty of power. No major eng or trans problems. A little care goes a long way. It had 38000 miles on it when I bought it in 97.

Dodge The Father Ram The Daughter — nothing its the most beautiful and strongest truck out on the road, will pull anyone out whoever is stuck or broke down , or like a ford thats broke down on the side of the road an will always start up by a turn of the key

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

I Love My Truck — Performance - it has decent acceleration, great braking, and handles pretty well for an loder truck Build Quality- The outside is steel, and the inside is plastic Appearence- I really like the way the truck looks, and I want to make it better when I get money Cost - I get between 17-20mpg which is really good for an older v-6 truck Fun - I have fun with this truck

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.

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.

N/a — It was a fun car to start out with. I was the only girl at my high school that had a pick-up truck. Could also zip and zoom around in. Able to put a lot of junk in my back end. Awesome soccer memories when growing up.

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.
