This week’s Photo of the Week feature takes a look at DF Member User’s 2001 Dodge Dakota R/T Regular Cab in Bright Silver. For those of who are not familiar with User, he previously had a very sharp 2000 Dakota R/T that fell prey to fire and after losing that truck, he purchased the Bright Silver Dakota R/T Regular Cab shown here.
The 2nd generation Dakota is a popular option in the sport truck segment as, unlike other dorky mini trucks that are all show and no go – the Dakota R/T is a smaller truck built to fly. Because of this, many people building the Dakota R/T modify the exterior as well as the drivetrain but User has gone a fairly subtle route with just simple appearance upgrades like the grille, headlights and clear taillights. The result is one mean looking Dakota R/T with engine mods that surely make this regular cab Dakota run as awesome as it looks. There is no elaborate body kit or even aftermarket wheels but User’s 2001 Dakota R/T is still one good looking truck that is well deserving of being featured in the Photo of the Week!
