That is something to do with a towing-kit bracket. I looked everywhere I could think of. See this site and scroll down to page 6 and 7, look under 'Kit # on column on the right. http://roadmasterinc.com/bg_/bg_rmi_std.pdf

I don't even know for sure that chart is what the numbers 284-1 & 2 mean. Just the only thing that appeared. Now there is another site, where you can ask. May be a fee. Probably. But everything I found leads to something to do with towing. https://www.etrailer.com/answers.aspx?fmake=Dodge&Manufacturer=Roadmaster

It's not the transmission number. Your 1997 Dakota has a 42RE. http://troubleshootmyvehicle.com/chrysler/3.9L-5.2L-5.9L/does-my-transmission-need-an-overhaul-1#1
