About “Thunderkota”

Well at age 50 I finally got my first Truck. This 98 Dodge Dakota Sport Club Cab 4X4 is clean inside and out and like riding a new truck. With just over 120,000 miles on her, she still has power to spare on the highway, and towing power when I need it.. The Magnum V8 (5.2) is not kind at the pumps, needless to say she is only driven once in a while.

About “The Big BoyToy”

Ive had this truck for about 2 years i got the truck at hiatt and pontiac I take really good care of it in and out. I used to off-road but after i blew the rearend and replaced it i learned a hard lesson. Since then i look at the diff. fluid to make sure its fresh and clean so my truck runs smooth.
