"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..."

"I love the @001 Dodge Dakota, and am sad they have stopped making the dodge dakotas. They where the most dependable car I have every had, plus I am not a mechanic but have done 90% of what needed done to the truck."

"This has been one heckuva good little truck for me. Mileage in the 18-24 range consistently in town. The body and bed are holding up real well so far. I had a 1990 Ranger previous to this Dakota and, though it was a great vehicle, was terribly rusty when I sold it. Not so this truck."

"I have owned a lot of trucks in my life ( I am 59)and this one far exceeded my expectations for dependability. The body really surprised me - it is 13 year old Pennsylvania everyday driver, & has just now started to show rust ! The AC still works great too..... That afte 230,000 miles.................... what could anyone complain about :)"

"I've owned my 2004 Dodge Dakota crew cab 4wd since 2005. This is a great truck! It rides like a car, and the 4.7L Magnum V-8 has plenty of power. The only con is the gas mileage. Without my fiberglass cap on, I can get 18 MPG. With the cap on I only get 15 MPG. I would definitely recommend this truck to anyone looking for a solid truck with a comfortable ride."

Pros: "Great 4WD; handles better than many sedans."

Cons: "Major cons are fuel consumption & poor front brake"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Only complaints are the truck was designed & built with undersized front disc brakes; overall unacceptable fuel mileage, but then Dodge/Chrysler tend to run behind the pack for MPG. Overall best feature for me is the unbeatable 4WD; can run in 4WD at highway speeds and has never failed or disappointed me. The rear drums/shoes have never needed replacement. Just found first minor rust spot on rear fender last year; minimal surface rust on leading edge under bed and tailgate has some rust. Truck was rust-proofed when new and has been kept seriously cleaned & waxed. ALL painted surfaces have always been waxed. Looked at a friends 2007 Dakota today and was shocked at how the rear fender wells are rusting out!"
