2001 Dodge Dakota Quad Cab SLT 4.7 V8 from North America
Good truck... I want to lift it about 4"
Check engine light comes on about once every three months for two days or so.... Then goes out. Dealer said it was the gas cap.
First Dodge I've ever had. Wish I could lift it with a good suspension lift that didn't cost a fortune.
It's a nice looking body style and body lifts mess up the look of the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If you're not going offroad, then there is no reason to lift it.

The check engine light is most likely due to the gas cap. Regardless of what your dealer might tell you (they just want your money) I'd just ignore it. I had the same problem and just ignored it. It went another 50,000 miles with not a hint of a problem. Also, for God's sake, DON'T RAISE YOUR SUSPENSION!!! The Dakota is one of the best looking, best handling trucks made, and raising it will ruin both the looks and the handling. I traded my Dakota for a high-sitting Ranger Sport and the handling is much worse than the Dakota and it looks dorky sitting way up there. Dakotas (the pre-ugly older ones) are the best looking trucks ever built. Don't mess it up!!
