My Dodge Dakota New Paint Job & Performance Upgrades
I know I havent done a truck video in awhile as been a busy years racing and upgrading parts on the truck here is a video showing the changes I have made. In April / May I had upgrated the top end of the engine with new heads, intake, throttle body and bigger headers, later in the summer it got some fresh paint.
Testing the Dakota
Making sure the Dakota runs well before I pull the motor out of it for another truck.

heres my truck again i did some mods on it cheap shit but still i think thats what car customizing should be about not how much you spend its about making it your own so it stands out all this work started not to long ago when i got a new tail light to fix a busted one and the only one i found at the junk yard had black trim and not chrome so i kinda went on a paint rampage with flat black paint next the bumpers might get blacked out im gonna go look for some of the plastic wheel arch trims and put them on im sure this will be a never ending project xD enjoy the video please rate/comment
