Crummy Transmission — Transmission blew out at 65,000 or so. Did drive from Connecticut to Texas in it. Gas isn't bad, neither is the regular maintenance. It is all right to drive, not a thrill seekers vehicle, but steady. I just hate that the transmission blew out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nothing

Cons: transmission blew

The Beast — This truck is an absolute off-road beast. Equipped with locking diffs an 4.6L V8 there's hardly a place where it cannot go. The only real complaint about this truck was the size. For such a big vehicle the cab was extremely small and uncomfortable, especially head room and hip room. Fuel economy was also pathetic with the off-road package.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Wanna go off road?  Here's your truck.

Cons: Wanna go on road?  Stay out of this truck.

Its Ok — Overall good "small" truck. Great power (v-8). It Handles ok, fuel economy leaves a bit to be desired. Head gaskets are weak, a single overheat destroyed first engine, and it required replacement. pretty easy to work on if you are a wrench.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great power (v-8)

Cons: Fuel economy

Best Dodge Dakota Ever Made — I love my truck the only thing wrong is I didn't get the tow package with it but oh well, I got the 4.7L V8 which is an awesome motor and it was under $20,000 for my truck, it is also a 4X4 which is what I like also. I also have a couple of dents from wheeling but no big deal.

Pros: good reliable truck

Cons: no tow package

I Love My Truck — I really like my truck. Crew cab is the only way to go. Fun to drive with manual trans. I like the look of the 2nd Gen Dakotas alot more than the ugly new ones. Really awesome truck. The only thing I wish is that there were more aftermarket parts (like lift kits and performance chips) available.

Pros: Prefect size.  Gas milage not too bad

Cons: V6 isn't the most powerful.

Great Truck For Bad Weather, Have A Big Bank Account For Fuel Costs — I loved this truck. Comfortable fabric bucket seats, plenty of leg room for taller people in front and back, V8 magnum definitely adds some get-up-and-go, rides higher which is good for flooding or high-snowfall areas, 4WD makes driving in snow easy, Linex spray-in bedliner is indestructible, taneau cover is a slide-on version, no snaps, which is much better. Only draw back is the 14 mpg city/18 mpg highway.

Pros: Very durable, sits high, comfortable ride

Cons: Terrible gas mileage (about 14 mpg in city)

2wd Kota Blue — its the coolest blue truck that I know of. It rides like a beauty and for a Dodge vehicle, it stands it's own. It has good mpg and and off the highway. Includes window tint and tilt wheel. After Christmas, upgrades will appear. Most likely a better air-intake, bigger wheels, shock absorbers and bedliner

Pros: good mpg, blue, rides smooth

Cons: V6, not as big as a Ram
