2004 Dodge Dakota - SLT 4x2 Club Cab
Pros: Handles like a car
Cons: Road noise from goodyear tires
Advice: Buy it if you need this size truckVery satisfied with the overall performance 4 wheel disk brakes are excellent. I have the 4.7 V8 Stampede 2 wd package and it works well..The only disappointment is the stock Goodyear tires are noisy on grooved concrete highway surfaces
2004 Dodge Dakota - SLT 4x4 Quad Cab
Pros: Quiet interior ride... no rattles.
Cons: Agree with someone else's review... blower is a little loud.
Advice: Go with the V-8.Great looking truck. Adding a line-x bedliner dampened the sound of an empty bed on rough streets. Love the V-8 in performance and sound. Makes the guy in the Nissan look away when he hears the Dodge engine start up. Gas mileage not the greatest, but you don't tend to go with a 4.7L V-8 and expect Hybrid mileage. 6 Disc-CD changer option provides a nice Stereo. Unfortunate that there is no XM-Satellite option. Aftermarket installed easily.
