While Ram owners are able to buy components of the Ram Runner package to turn their daily driven pickup into an offroad monster, DF member Cali01dak base his prerunner style Dodge pickup on a second generation Dakota. The result is one of the coolest 2g Dakota pickups I’ve seen and based on the work done to this midsized pickup – I would bet that this Dakota performs every bit as good as it looks.
We don’t have a mod list on Cali01dak’s 2001 Dodge Dakota but it is very clear that there is some serious suspension work that has the rugged offroad tires extended out away from the frame for better offroad stability while a set of fenders that look like something straight off of a TORC race truck (almost) cover these huge wheels and tires. Im usually not a fan of bumperless pickups but there is no question that Cali01dak’s Dakota looks just plain mean. I love it.
Remember DF’ers, if you want to see your car, truck or SUV featured in the Photo of the Week, all you have to do is post pictures in the DF gallery or in any of the various section “roll call” threads.
