This is my 95' Dakota that is now for sale on Craigslist. Its a V6 and it sounds very close to a V8. I had Lou's Custom Exhaust put a full 2.5 cat back system on it, single in single out, Flowmaster 40 series.
Making your V6 truck sound the best
A comparison of my old *Flowmaster Single chamber race series mufflers* and
my current *Flowmaster OUTLAW mufflers*. The video doesn't do complete
justice for either, around 3 1/2-4 RPM and above the Race series got very
raspy and high (sounding more like a V6). The OUTLAWS keep their tone very
well at even 4-5 RPM and have an awesome sound. The race series rumbled
much different at idle and 2-3 RPM has a smooth tone, but after that
sounded a little to raspy and got high pitched. The OUTLAWS all around
sound fantastic and probably the most close your going to get to a V8.
Dodge Dakota Coolant Leak Repair - Including Bypass Hose, Thermostat, Water Pump, etc.
To get to what turned out to be a Thermostat leak we had to remove the
The Serpentine belt, the fan, the Air Conditioning Compressor, the
Alternator and the A/C and Alternator Bracket.
This way you can easily access the bypass hose, the thermostat housing, and
the upper heater hose (or otherwise called the heater to engine hose).
This also gives you free access to the water pump if you were going to
replace it. This is actually the easiest way to access the water pump as
opposed to the way the service manual describes removing it (without
removing the A/C and Alternator bracket).
However, after doing the job we discovered a second leak on the lower
heater hose (or the heater to water pump return hose). Which also needed
to be corrected.
The 180 MPH 1969 Dodge Daytona: "Project Angrier"
The Smoking Tire heads to East Hampton to terrorize yuppies in the baddest
muscle car around: Mr. Angry's 1969 Dodge Daytona. Blasphemous to some,
envied by others, this is one tire-shredding muscle machine we'll take in
our garage any day.

1999 Dodge Dakota RT 5.9 Start Up, Custom Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour on a 1999 Dodge Dakota RT 5.9
with custom side Exhausts. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this truck
while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling
cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it,
start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration with an Exhaust clip. A thorough review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
Dodge Dakota 4.7 V8 Pulls Out Stuck Semi Truck from Deep Snow - Good Deed for the Day!
Leaving the gym I came across a tanker truck which was stuck in some deep
snow. He swung the cab over into an unplowed area with about 6" of hard
snow and his super single drive tires just weren't getting traction. I was
in my S4 at the time and told him I only lived about 10 minutes away and
would come back with my truck. The truck driver was thankful but made it
clear he didn't think a pickup would be able to pull him.
As promised I came back with the Dakota (and camera!) to see him still
struggling. Plenty of people with trucks much larger than mine drove right
on by, nobody seemed interested in helping this guy. As someone who has
been helped before, I figured I'd at least give it a shot. Plus it'd be
With all the excitement, I forgot to lock it into 4lo on the first attempt.
I don't think he was helping with the cab, you can see I was able to rock
it a bit in 4Hi. On the second try in 4lo I had no problem yanking it out.
The truck driver didn't know the weight of the truck as it sits. His full
weight is 122,000 lbs (55,338 kg). This isn't your average semi truck,
this thing was huge. I'm guessing it was 40,000 to 50,000 lbs empty.
The pickup is a 2000 Dodge Dakota SLT quad cab 4x4 4.7L V8. It's mostly
stock. The rear axle is fully locking (Powertrax No-Slip) with 3.55 gears.
Tires are 31 x 10.5 BFG TA KO's. The Exhaust is an MBS catback stainless system.
