1999 Dodge Dakota R/T By The Webmaster

1999 Dodge Dakota R/T By The Webmaster

 

This is my Dodge Dakota R/T: To get the ball rolling, we thought we would post a little information about our 1999 Solar Yellow Dodge Dakota R/T. After looking a couple months for a v-8 powered regular cab 4x4 Dakota, we stumbled across what we were looking for. Sitting on the front row was 5 Dakota's including a black 4x4. After talking to the salesman he explained that they had a couple more 4x4's on their storage lot. When we reach the lot I could not believe my eye's. Over 30 Dakota's, most dealerships we visited had a maximum of 4 or 5 Dakota's. The salesman pointed out the 4x4 he wanted us to look at, it was a good looking truck.

Sitting next to the truck was a bright yellow 1999 R/T. I asked the salesman about the truck, he said he did not know much about as it just come in a few days earlier. The salesman ask us if we wanted to take the 4x4 for a test drive. The wife an I talked it over and told him to get the keys to the R/T. This guy thought we were nuts, he just got done explaining how the R/T would make a perfect truck for a young person. I agreed that it was a little flashy for a couple of old persons like ourselves. We are long term Dodge fans and have owned many fast mopars over the years. Including our favorite a 1972 Dodge Charger Rallye with a 440magnum, 4-speed. Between the wife an I, we have owned over 20 different mopars.

I explained to the wife that it would take a lot for this truck to impress me. She agreed so we took the R/T for a test drive. I must admit that this truck did impress me right out of the gate. Not for its speed, I have had many big and small block powered mopars that were faster. What did impress me was how great this truck handled. It was quick, nimble and felt like it had glue on the tires as I drove it. Older mopar are legendary for power but we all know they were lacking in the handling department. I was hooked, but still was not convinced this was the right Dakota for us.

This is were I have to thank my wife, after returning back from our test drive. She told me and the salesman that she would like to take it for a spin. When she returned I knew by the smile on here face this Dakota R/T had a new home. The rest is history we purchased our Dakota R/T on March 3, 1999. We both enjoy it very much!

Our R/T is basically stock except for the AAR hood, and 180 T-stat. In first 5 year of ownership we have kept the mileage low under 10,000. We plan on having this cool truck for years to come. Thanks for taking the time to check out our R/T.
