Cool Thread of the Day: 1st Gen Dakota Before and After Thread

We have looked at all sorts of pictorial threads but today, we look at a different sort of show-off thread from the 1st generation Dodge Dakota section.  Rather than a simple “check in” thread or an individual project thread, this link takes a look at our members’ rides when they got them and after some time modifying them.  Some of the Dakota transformations are pretty subtle while others went crazy right down to body off restorations.  Some guys even went so far as to show off their engine swaps and, in at least one case, a Dakota was transformed from a rear wheel drive to a four wheel drive truck.

While there are a few other vehicles in this thread, this post focuses heavily on the 1st generation Dodge Dakota.  Along with the many images, there is plenty of discussion about restoration and modification of the original Dakota pickups so whether you are looking for ideas or hunting for tips to solve some problems with your Dakota build – this is the thread for you!
