Call a transmission shop and see if it's a common problem. Check with other owners on a Dakota forum too. I would not drop the pan - we both know it's not going to help.

Is the rear driveshaft spinning at all when you put it in gear and press the gas pedal? If so it's obviously a problem in the rear differential. If its not spinning then you have a problem in the transmission. The only thing dropping the pan will do is allow you to see if there are any metal pieces or excessive metal particles in the fluid. Changing the filters will not help. And it doesnt work in any gear, reverse, 1st, 2nd, drive?

sounds like your transmission took a dump, sounds like something internal broke

Ok guys just got done putting the trans back together instead of taking it to the shop now im doin burn outs;-). The problem was the oil pick up filter they has a little fitting with a o ring that goes into the vaulebody well the o ring was blown apart in the pan all together a bad design by mopar but theup side is it only cost 53 dollars to fix the fluid cost more than the parfs but thanks for the help.
