My first new vehicle purchase was the 94 Auto with the 5.2 and limited slip 3.55 gears. I had heads, cam, intake manifold work, roller rockers, torque converter, shift kit, Doug Thorley headers and Gibson exhaust, and a Vortech supercharger. Sold this one to get my 98 RT. Which I did lots of work to. Then I got the 2000 after Chrysler bought the RT back. I wanted to get another Dakota to build into a race truck and bought the 94 5 speed used. Drove it a while and decided not to do the build. I sold this to my neibghor for his kid. The kids friend took the truck to make a beer run and wrapped it around a tree. The second 94 was a bit beat up to begin with so it wasn't worth putting the money into.

You don't have any parts left from the 94s, do you?

Welcome to Camm. I am a former owner of 4 past Dakotas. All V8's. 94 Sport Regular Cab, 94 Sport Regular Cab 5 speed, 98 RT Deep Amythyst, and a 2000 Sport 4.7 5 speed. I had a lot of fun with those trucks. What do you have done to yours?
I basically have what you can see roll pan, ss inserts, hl with hids, tonneau, and a center console swap next is a over head computer

Welcome, Zac. I had an '88 Dakota with a four-banger. The only new vehicle I have ever owned. It blew a head gasket.

im not sure how fitment is for the SS grill shell to stock hoods, but it had to be worked on a bit to mate to my cervini's fiberglass hood. i always thought it was because the front of the aftermarket hood was shaped a bit different. it wasn't alot of work to make it work but yea there was issues so don't paint it till you get it how you want it to sit.
