i've been coming to this site for a week or so and it seems like everyone has 98 up dakota's.Is this just for yuppie's are for true dakota fan's that has owned there dakota's for more than a couple of year's.I considered trading up to a new model but decided my 93 v8 4by4 ext cab that has been payed off since 97 still looks and drive's as good as any new one.i guess i could buy one and leave in the driveway while i go on the trails,because i would be scared to get it dirty.I hate when you go to buy a add on's and all you see is for 97 up models.I've learned to modify add on's that were meant for the new model's.this isn't meant as a -sshole remark,but just a thought.

i've got a 92 v8 4x4 and love it it's a daily driver and i'm doing a soild axle swap on it myself. you know there is not much out there for ower truck but that's good in a round avout way. this way we have to fab everything for ower truck our selves. this way your sure to have a one of a kind. right now i have a custom made cap with no side windows and a roof rack, tubuler bumper for the rear that rapes around the sides and a 3'body lift that i made. i just finished the front which is home to 8,000 pound whinch. it also has a cage on it that rapes up on over the hood and around the sides. it hinges out to get to the engin. looks great but will look bettter with the soil axle.

He is a loaded White and Silver two tone 95' ext cab, V-8 w/ auto, 3.55 gears w/ limited slip. So far I have installed an Extang bed cover, Window tint, Eagle Alloys, 31x10.5 Kelly Safaris, Tow hooks, 2" body lift, and 100w offroad lights on my own fabricated Pre-runner bars with skid plate in the front. I will be ordering my suspension lift from Desert Rat (They are on sale)after I close on a house next tues.
You are right in the fact they are over looked by the after market. Unfortunately, it is all about sales. I have owned Dodges since 1979, and aftermarket parts have always been hard to come by. Up until Dodge went to the new (1994 Ram) body style, their truck sales didn't warrant the aftermarket guys getting much into production on Mopars. Why make a kit for a rig that you might sell a thousand when you can make a kit for a different rig and sell 10 thousand! (ie. difference between a Gen II and a Ranger) It's all about economics fellas (and fellinas) They teach it in school.

I don't have an aftermarket bumper on the rear,but I hated the factory one (big,ugly,square.looks like its four inches too wide) So, I managed to install a gen3 rear bumper,and amazingly,it looks like it belongs there!!

Hey Lilblackdak. I think we've already talked but i got the 2 inch Rough Country Lift. Its small but it looks much better than stock. You can run 30's.

In my opinoin nothing looks more wimpy than a gen II 2WD stock. People would just walk away cuz its 2wd, But now no-one even asks. It looks retty sweet. Go for it man.
