I need an education on 1999+ dakotas.. I hope to buy one
in the next 2-3 months. I want a quad cab 99-04 .,,.
-was 99 the first quab cab?
-is 04 the last year of that body style before the redesign?
what years in those trucks were troublesome. I've heard that
for some othose years the auto transmissions were problematic
and had high repair rates.
- what about the 4.7s? what are the years to get or avoid?

- what were other significant mechancial changes that a buyer
might want to know... (like wheel lug patterns, etc..)

I'm a mopar fan, I've got slant sixes, big blocks and small
blocks.,,, so I want to keep it Dodge.., I just need to know
what I'm looking for....
