"I bought this truck while making additions to the house. I was able to put anything I needed into the bed. It has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. The A/C needs work and the tires have been replaced as needed, but the overall wear is pretty even. Selling it because we are moving out of the country"

Cons: "Fuel mileage"

"I downsized from a 2003 Dodge 2500 Cummins quad cab because I sold my camper and just didn't need it anymore. THAT was the best truck I ever had. This Dakota runs a very close second. It's fun to drive, extremely comfortable, ice cold air and heater that will blow you out. Super reliable, strong tow vehicle, and looks GREAT. We have taken several thousand mile trips since purchasing it (at 78000 miles) and it has never missed a beat. The ONLY downside is the fuel mileage with the 4.7 V8. Getting a max of 17 in mixed driving. My big Diesel routinely got 23! Strongly recommend one of these. Used prices are very reasonable and the trucks are a great value."

This photo taken at 175,000 mile service. It had just passed its smog inspection too!

"This was first New vehicle purchase I made. I spent $12,880 dollars for it in 1999 and have had 180,000 miles of reliable transportation. I have replaced 4 sets of tires, Brakes 2x, Battery 2x, new radiator and Serpentine belt 2x. Have done all maintenance and repairs myself. I still get 24 mpg, (ac compressor failed at 95k and optioned to remove ac from truck). The 2.5L 4cyl is a great commuter and light hauler don't try to tow or haul many heavy loads. A great vehicle I don't think I could ever replace it for the $1200 blue book quoted value and get anything more reliable."

"Primarily all highway miles with regular maintenance completed as needed. Had a complete checkup on it before winter at Eagle Tire & Lube. No problems found. There is a single new chip on a new windshield replaced last fall. It is in the lower passenger corner. We have added a black topper to the silver pickup. It looks good."

"I was able to play around and trick sum things out with this truck. Dropped the back 4inches raised the front with coil spring loads. I painted on it fell in love in this truck and with it too. Rebuilt the entire top half in 2013 so all the bugs are gone. Whoever likes to personalize their rides, this is the best beast for them. She'll let you run her hard so long as you allow a lil rest in between... Good times! I also have the stock rims for it. Took forever to find the perfect wheels for it..."
