Ball joints and sway bars.
Dodge Dakotas are good trucks, but stick with the V8. I have the 3.9 V6 4x4 quad cab auto, and the performance is terrible. 0-60 time is about 15 seconds. The transmission bounces through gears extremely hard and never knows what gear it wants to be in. This is because of the lack of power from the 3.9. The truck can't hold speed on inclines or in headwind. It's only returning about 10 MPG, even though it's a dog.
Other than that, the truck is the best midsize you can get; just stick with the 5.2 or 4.7 V8s.
The truck handles decent and has a very nice ride on the highway.
The quality is not the greatest, as the interior is wearing out and the clear coat is coming off on the hood and roof.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
