    I Built The Perfect "sleeper". — Muscle truck, baby! This one had the Magnum 5.2L V8 with a 5-speed manual transmission, regular cab, short bed, with no power options or even air conditioning! Lightest possible truck with the biggest possible engine. It didn't stop there either...I added a lot to it in the performance department. Cam, roller rockers, headers, performance PCM, ported and polished throttle body (did it by hand), 3" Gibson exhaust, and a lot of other things that I can't think of right now. Eventually, I got bored with it, and decided to get something more practical. It sure was fun blowing the doors off all the little rice rockets with a seemingly stock appearing pickup truck! This thing was the ultimate sleeper!

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

    Pros: All sorts of go, very little show.

    Cons: Not the most practical daily driver.

    94 Dodge Dakota — Small truck with a V8. Great gas Mileage, especially for a V8, enough bed space for anything you wanted. I only had to replace a few hoses in the years that I owned this, next to regular maintenance. Absolutely beautiful. flew like a dream

    Pros: Great gas mileage, looked superb, didn't cost much to maintain

    Cons: could have used better handeling

    Dakota Style — This is a sweet Truck! The 318 with fuel injection can really haul; ass and trash. Very versatile the SLT package with chrome wheels and two tone paint looks sharp on the town. Hook a load up to the receiver hitch and there is no problem with towing. 180,000 plus miles and still running strong.

    Pros: Power and sweet options

    Cons: Takes a long time to warm up the cab

    Good Reliable Truck — good truck, never got stuck even in the worst driving conditions, good handling, and power

    Pros: powerful engine, 4WD

    Cons: gas mileage was in the teens

    I Know Vehicle Well. Bought It From My Dad. It's A Real Workhorse! — Great ride height w/ excellent visibility. Comfortable ride; Huge turn radius (full length bed w/ ext-cab); fuel mileage in town suffers; 172-k miles and virtually NO squeaks or rattles! (SOLID). I intend to bring this ubit back to showroom condition as there is superficial body damage and interior wear. Mechanically sound. The radio problem has me stumped.

    Pros: Full size power & towing in a mid-size. 4x4 is rock solid for normal use (I'm not a rock crawler or heavy off-road guy).

    Cons: Fuel Mileage is below par. I may re-gear it. Suggestions? Gearing? Re-program the computer?

    I've Always Like The Dodge Dakota. It's A Good Little Truck. — I bought my truck when it already had 100,000 miles on it and it was going strong then and although it's showing it's age and mileage is still trying it's best to get me to work every day which is a 75 mile one-way trip. It's been a really good truck. I've had one other Dodge Dakota in my life and I remember that one as being really good as well.

    Enjoy Driving It — I like the larger size cab & over all size of the truck itself. I have the V6 motor just wish it got a little better gas mileage.

    Good — The power it has about 220 horse and the 4*4is good it'll get you where you wanna go it'll tow anything a full size truck will and haul just as much but it only has a six foot bed and it is a pretty comfy ride.

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

    Pros: Power handling off road abilities and smooth ride

    Cons: fuel cost although it depends on you drive it and what kind of mods u do
