Good First Truck — needs a bigger engine and stronger tranny so i can tow the boat... other than that its a beast in the mud and the tires i have on it help quite a bit... need to go get it dirty again...

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

Pros: beast in the mud for a 2x4

Cons: small engine

Dodge Dakota, Std!!! — It gets bad mileage. But it is built very well. I've launched it across highways and drivin thru ditches and it holds together very well. It's pretty fun to drive too. I would deffinately buy another as long as it had a V8. The V6 is great but the V8 would be better

Pros: Built excellent, strong V6

Cons: poor mileage

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.

Pros: Very Fun!

Cons: N/A

Dodge Dakota — Overall good truck. Not the fastest thing on block but will still do a brun out. It handles like a truck but dose stop very good. Its built very solid for its size. The transmission is a little odd, its easy to miss a gear while shifting up or down. Interior feels cheap but its a truck so who really cares. If my friend was looking for a truck I would recomend a Dakota.

Pros: Solid, reliable truck.

Cons: Long shift tranmission,

Dodge Dakota — V8! 5.2 liter 318 magnum. all the power you need out of a mid-sized truck, and will put it all to the ground whenever requested. 4-wheel drive works great. engages every time and i've never gotten stuck. limited slip rearend helps the rears lock up to leave 2 nice lines of black rubber. handles great for a truck. no problem performing at high speeds

Pros: V8, 4x4, Truck

Cons: Gas Mileage

One Solid Little Truck That Won't Let You Down. — Overall small but enough power for the weekend hauler. Great for getting into those tight spots but still big enough to pull a load. Good handling but could use a little more on the suspension side for the offroading. The box is a good size for the weekend hunter or fisher but not really big enough for a good days work on the farm. Nice apperance to it but could use a better set of stock tires. 4WD can be a bugger to put in but once she's in she works well.

Pros: Small but can still do lots of work. Fairly reliable, hasn't left me stranded yet. Nice look to her. Can't get over how tough she is.

Cons: Likes to rust around wheel wells and on the box. 4WD can be a bugger to get in. Offraoding suspension is a little rough.

Great Truck Brand New, But After 100k It Goes Downhill. — I got the truck from my dad at 130,000 miles, and had constant problems, but it had better acceleration than my current car, and it's great to off-road.

Pros: Good for off-roading and had decent pick-up.

Cons: Transmission.

Great Little Truck, Excellent Build Quality, Decent Fuel Economy. — The dakota has been the standard that all other trucks in the midsize category try to follow. This is the 2nd generation of the dakota and one of my favorite body styles. The 3.9l doesn't offer much in the way of performance but this truck was an excellent point a to point b vehicle nonetheless.

Pros: Good looks, solid build quality, decent fuel economy, good options, comfortable, the extended cab has lots of utility space under the foldable rear bench seats.

Cons: The V6 is underpowered compared to what other competitors offer in their v6's,  no keyless entry.

Mid-size Truck That Gets Through Winter And Tows The Boat. — 3.9 V6 Magnum, Grey Ext w/red stripe and chrome bumpers, Grey Int Pioneer Deck, Stock Chrome Wheels w/not much tread soon upgrading to some Mud Terrains :-)

Pros: Cheap little truck that will gets decent gas mileage and can still go mudding and tow whatever you need it to.

Cons: Not as big as I would like it to be(I want a full-size, 4-door) and not as much power as I would like either(would rather have the 5.2 V8)
