If its what i'm thinking it is, it's the "Lil' Red Express" pickup Dodge
made for a little bit.

Did it look like this one?

not Li'l Red Express. that was a full size, stepside bed.

i've seen the one you're talking about Superbee, it was called the "Warrior". it's out on the web somewhere. i've seen 2 different ones. one red and one black.

I thought the Warrior was a knock off of the full size Warlock; availabe only in black - and that there was also a Li'l Red Express version for the Dakota, in red only ? There was definitely a L'il Red Express version of the Dakota in '92.

Easy to overlook - Not nearly as common as the original full size, never seen one live myself.

That just means someone put an older front end on it; or, more likely, transplanted the bed. All Li'l Red Express Dakotas came with a 318.

ive seen somewhere on the net a genI with a stepside bed that had like a rollbar type thing on it, not a roll bar but some bars that followed the contours of the bed and up to the cab, but i cant find it

maybe it was a genII but it sure looked like a genI

either way, its too bad somebody has let it go to sh1t like it was
all stickered up and rusty

There was a Lil' Red Express Dakota, built from 1990-1992, by L.E.R. Industries in Edwardsburg, MI. They also built a Warrior edition which was based on the Warlock.

I have an article about them scanned in and posted on my site.

Mystery Solved!! So, while it is not a "factory" (dodge) limited edition, it is still a limited edition. Basically like an old "Yenko" Camaro. And I dounbt the same value is there.

Cheers

Hi,
This is my 87 Express 4 x 4 the conversion was done by Country Sales Inc. but I cannot find any info on them I wonder if they became L.E.R. that is the co. that did the 90-92 Little Red express Dakota.
I have found very little info on the 87 express.
If you can share anything you know that would be GREAT.

I just purchased an 88 Dakota Express. I have the original window stickers to prove it was a factory option, but at $4999 I can see why nobody bought one. I'm at work right now but I can have a link to photobucket later tonight for anyone who's interested.
