I think my fuel pump died. It was the first time I had to have the dak
We only went about 7 miles, so I'm not worried about the 4x4.
(Do wish they sent a flatbed tho...)

Sam South's 1998 Dakota Sport 3.9L V-6, 5-speed, air, 3.21 open differential
Modifications done so far:
2 1/2 Flowmaster Two-chamber
MSD 6-A Ignition
MSD Blaster III coil
Bosch Platinum Plugs (gapped .050)
K&N 2.75" x 10"
Edelbrock 10" air cleaner assembly
Home made dual ram air
255/60R15 Roadhugger GT "siped"
TechStyle tonneau cover
Ran a 15.80 @ 90.46 mph
Sell the 3.9 and buy an R/T!
If I was going to keep it I'd have a limited slip with a 3.90 installed
I can have this done for $675.00 and I believe this would drop my times
considerably. Also I'd install a V-8 throttlebody(with the necessary intake
mods), Comp Cams roller rockers and switch to 295/50/15 BFG T/A.
I got the A plan on this truck and my total investment out the door with
modifications is about $14400.00 so I really can't complain.

Jon Steiger's '96 Dakota SLT club cab. Its black (with a grey lower
break), and has chrome wheels, bumpers, and grill. Its a 4x2,
with a 5 speed, sure grip, 3.55 rear, 318ci Magnum V8, Mopar bed liner,
overhead console, bucket
seats, fog lamps, and AM/FM casette.
For a complete list of modifications, etc. check out my profile on the Dakota Mailing List Member Profiles page for more info.
This is how it looked when it was new:
After the bed rail install. These pics were taken the morning after my
1st run at the "local" dragstrip, where I got to meet (and run
against) fellow DMLer Bill Tierney's nitrous Dakota. (Though he wasn't on the
nitrous for this run.) I lost miserably, of
course, and missed a shift during that run, thus throwing more
fuel onto the auto vs. manual fire.
After getting the rear and side windows tinted, and installing my DDBC.
("Dakota Decal by Clark")
After installing my tail-light covers.
After installing my Pro-Glass hood and Checkmate Tonneau cover and having my bed rails painted
Spy photos taken of a (disguised) 1997 Dodge Dakota.
I have the '88 Dodge Dakota Sport (4X4). Standard Cab, Tonn. Cover,
Roll Bar, Fog Lights, Lower Air Dam, Custome Wheels (Cragar Star
Spokes). Same sized tires as factory. Loaded, power door/window, air,
am/fm & cassette.
Now for the mod's _I've_ done:) It's the 3Speed Auto /w the 3.9 V6.
Vend Shade's on both windows, Tinted glass, Headers (Edelbrock). New
engine (same) /w towing package /w some mods. (Let me know if you want
the new engine specs). It also has a 100HP nitrous Oxide kit designed
for that year/make of Dakota, which I've yet to install. It's in really
good conditions, only there's so many modifications I would like to do
to it, but there's so many things that stop me. Like, I'd like to
covert the column shift to the floor, but the 4wd shifter is there. I
want to get rid of the bench seat and get bucket seats, some top end
engine mods. I've wanted a super chip for it (which I heard they're
making for dakota's now, even older ones). I'd need the super chip if I
want to run the Nitrous. It puts out an extra 100HP and the chip puts
out about 20HP. I also wanted to get a new transmission, not the
3-speed auto again tho, but like a 4speed overdrive trans. But I don't
know if that can be done or not. Does anyone have any suggestions on
what I can do to this truck that won't cost too much, or is worth
getting done, that will give this old truck of mine some more power?
Like I said it's a new engine, so I know the engine is ok for awhie.?
Please let me know if so, I've been looking all over for someone that's
had a dakota before, especially with people that have 88 Dakota's. If
anyone has any suggestions, for this truck, please let me know by
emailing me at; firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks
hope to hear from you soon.
Here are my 1992 Dakota LE, 4X4 and it's replacement a 1999 Dakota
SLT 4x4. Both are powered by 5.2l engines and have 4 speed automatics. The
1992 has gained some options over the years like Fold-A-Cover bed cover,
genuine Shelby cab spoiler, Flowmaster cat back system, CD changer,
Leather buckets, 1998 Dakota console, Add-a-Leafs and has performed
flawlessly for 173,000 miles. The 1999 does not have any add-ons, yet, but
hopes to soon.
