I bought this truck in February 2014. I had three different car dealerships searching for an extended cab 2WD Dakota. I just like the body style. They came to me with several offers: a four-door model and models with 4WD they said they would sell to me for the same price as the 2WD or an extended cab. And I said “no, you won’t”.
This truck has served me well as a daily driver. I had to change out the left front wheel bearing and have some body work done on the bumper, and I replaced the front bumper, front valance, hood and right front fender.
Today this truck has 96,748 miles on the odometer. This truck seems to do this old country boy stuck in the city good as a daily driver.
