01-04 Dakotas!

Whats say you guys about 01-04 dakotas? 4.7-5.9's. They seem to be priced pretty high of the years I mentioned. I found one that was super clean.Turns out, it was in a wreak out west. They wanted 9,600 for a 01 quad cab with 83k on the clock.

Ya what dstifel said I had an 01 4.7L 4x4 and my 1500 5.7L gets 1/2mile mpg better than the Dakota did. Mine did pretty good pulling 14' trailer but it sure pulls alot nicer behind the 1500

I had 01 Dakota with the 4.7. I bought it with 20k on it and I sold it with 180k. It towed an enclosed around for the 6 years I had it. Only thing major I had to do was the rear end. I wish I never sold it
