Fast and Fun, perfect project truck, that I keep adding.

I Would Recommend Getting A Dakota — I haven't have anything real wrong with it. The ride is nice. It accelerates nicely. The handling is really good. Stock this truck get 13 to 15 miles to the gallon around town and during the winter. It gets up to about 19 miles to the gallon on the highway. Towing is nice.

Pros: I've added a throttle body spacer, cold air intake, and an exhaust system for performance.  I also added a remote starter and cruise control.

Cons: Gas milage has improved. It now get over 16 miles to the gallon around town and 24 on the highway. That's just what i have noticed.

Really Pitchable In Corners, But Can't Match The Power Or Mileage Of The Newest Big Boys. — I could certainly tolerate the terrible 11 mpg average if the engine had more power. This engine produces the same or less horsepower than most v-6's now. I like everything else about this truck....its utility, its size and maneuverability, its looks.....just the fuel efficiency and lack of power are its only weaknesses.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable, good ride, parking lot/garage maneuverability, respectable load capacity

Cons: Lack of power and horrible fuel mileage
