How can I tell what trim my 1998 Dodge Dakota is, please?

Asked by Feb 15, 2014 at 06:39 PM about the 1998 Dodge Dakota

Question type: General

I inherited a 1998 Dodge Dakota...don't know the trim level. It is a 4-wheel drive model
with what I think is a standard cab. It does have 4 wheel drive. Not sure what the engine
is...I'm not @home right now.

The 8th character of your vehicle identification number will tell you what engine you have. Your local Dodge Dealer can decode the complete vehicle identification number and tell you the trim level. HTH. -Jim
