Default '94 with 3.9 Magnum v6




Hello, I recently received my grandparents '94 Dodge Dakota sport regular cab short bed with the 3.9 Magnum by. Everything besides the tires and a few other minor things are original. It has 27.5k miles on it. I would love y'alls opinions on it and what are some things y'all recommend to do or that look nice on it or make it handle better. I'll post a few pictures of it when I get the chance.

1) FLUIDS. Oil, transmission, differential, coolant.

2) SUSPENSION. It might be low mileage, but age rots rubber also; check the ball joints and the control arm bushings up front; the spring bushings in the rear.

3) SHOCKS. Yes, I list that separate; but do replace the shocks.

4) TUNE IT UP. See the note about mileage and age.

5) Post pics. And remember, most suggestions will be from the poster's viewpoint, and may not apply to what you want to do.

6) Clean it well, and wax it. Properly. That'll do wonders if it's been garaged all its life into bringing it back into looking as sharp as it can.

That's the first points.

Oh, and item 0? Pick up the factory service manual; used on Ebay typically, discounted at RockAuto and other vendors, or MSRP at Bishko and the dealership.
