Sounds like your MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) sensor is bad. But first check for vacuum leaks.

My Dakota bogs down while idling.any clue as to what it could be?

Could be a dirty or bad Idle Air Control valve (IAC) or a dirty Mass Air Flow sensor (MAF). You can try cleaning your IAC with some throttle body cleaner and you can also buy some MAF cleaner by CRC. Remove your MAF and spray down the contacts. Here is a short video............... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bXuu5ZThok
