View Full Version : Dakota Owners?

10-02-2002, 10:55 PM
I am looking at a 98 Dakota with a 5.2L V8. Anyone out there have one? I am curious about the tranny's and how they will hold out. Any thoughts on towing?? I have a 4.3l Vortec that tows pretty well with mulch and equip but not soo good hauling a yard of soil..

Thanks in advance.

My advice.....

if your looking at a v8, you might as well get a full size for the extra bed space, I've got a ranger and had a ranger before that, they just can't haul as much or have the bed space, I finally bought an ol' f150 and even though it's a 1/2 ton, it's nice to have that big ol' bed back there, and kept my ranger for general running around.

good luck
