I've wheeled my 97 a few times and wheeled my 99 some but it was mild wheeling. I have a78 Power Wagon Stepside I do my hardcore wheeling with.

making fun of rednecks, i can handle that. but making fun of the mighty fixit all is heresy. i have a buddy with a older style Dakota with a v8 that does impossible things with bald tires and no lift.

Well I cant argue that too much since I built this for my girlfriend but its a nice truck and went over everything at the dunes and a lot of the mounds. Rancho makes a three inch kit for then newer daks but I did a 3 inch body liftm rear 3 inch add a leafs and cranked the torsion bars a little. By the way this thing still whoops a lot of ass drag racing at the dunes too. Check out dakotausa.com. Youll find all kinds of stuff on there.







Hey thats a nice Ram in that pic Dave.

i got a nice set of 33's but they are on my ram so they are the wrong pattern, the tires have about 2,000 miles tops on them, they are cooper discoverer s/t

hmmm:tonka: but....tim does have a point . At one time, I did remember a guy on the boards that had a lifted dakota I believe it was. It was an earlier style, and his avatar was him pulled over by the cops or something. It was big...like 38's or 39's I believe
