it had the v6, auto. its a comfortable truck, rides good over bumps. a/c was somewhat cold, nice ifinity sound system. it was blue and silver, they wanted 7k for it. the biggest complaint from me on it is the damn truck has no power at all!! its soo damn slow compared to the bronco. i was turing around, not moving and had the wheel turned all the way to the left, floored it, and it could barely squeel the inside tire. it was dissapointing. and the gas mileage for a auto is only 14 city 18 hwy. i already get that with the bronco.

the truck wouldnt even spin a tire from a standstill.

im looking at a yelllow one also for 6 k

I have a 2000 V6 Dakota ext cab with stick. I can smoke (one wheel/ 30x9.5r15) all the way down the street. Too easily in turns. Stupid light ass back end! 175HP baby Yeah.
You want a dakota to kick some ass with? Mopar makes a 528 crate motor and all the hardware to stick it UNDER the hood of a Dakota. But plan your routes around gas stations and tire shops.:goodfinge

how good is ure gas mileage?

even with a auto, the v6 should still be able tobreak the tires loose?

Should be easier, just power brake it a bit. Plus the torque converter lets the engine spool up, while I'd have to dump the clutch in my manual truck.

Oh yeah, get a manual if you can. =P

if ya find one, get a stick. dodge's auto trannies are worse than Fords. trust me, my dakota's died maybe 300 miles after i started driving it (had 122K on it).

if i were you, and had the cash, drop an M5OD in your bronco.

It shouldn't feel dead, though. Ya gotta have a truck that can get the hell out of it's own way. Otherwise I just wouldn't feel safe.

Not as bad as an old 2.8L (ticking time-bomb) 4x4 S-10/Blazer, is it? :D My friend back home had one; had to be the slowest piece of metal on the road.
