Well, no. Where would one find cartoons that contain such subject
matter? On second thought, I don't want to know. :-)
After looking at the cartoon I posted, perhaps I should have put your
name instead of Roy's. That ole gal has a "bee"-hive hairdo. What
better place for bee-keeping?

You have a nine year old truck that has almost 150,000 miles on it. Treat
it with respect and it will serve you well within its capabilities. Forget
about getting big increases out of exhaust and air filters. I have a '97
Longbed with the 3.9 with 195,000 miles on it. It's not meant to be a
I'm sorry some of the people here have to be so rude and immature and
complain so much, rather than trying to help people. You will not be
able to get much more power out of the engine without spending gobs of
money (supercharger, hyperchip, etc.). Intake/exhaust mods would give
a power increase, but it probably wouldn't even be noticeable. Also,
if you're going to be towing decent sized things, you may want to
upgrade the rear suspension with helper springs or air bags to
eliminate "tail sag" which happens a lot in weighed down Dakotas.
Being a Ram owner, I don't know of typical Dakota problems, but this
site has some recalls that could give you a good idea of common

I've got a '98, same engine transmission, little less mileage.
Don't think any of the heavily advirtized HP enhancers will give you
any noticeable change.
As for common problems, my truck has been relatively trouble free.
The CatCon is subject to core material dislocation, and you're already
past the extended warranty mileage on that, I suspect it may have
already been replaced. I had an early water pump failure, replaced
under warranty. Also had a differential speed sensor failure and have
had ongoing and irritating, but not truck out of service,
intermittant problems with that. The brakes develop shudder early and
often, many forums devoted to that topic, I suggest high quality pads
and careful wheel lug torquing. I'm a believer in ceramics, but have
not found any for this truck.
If you want more preformance CHANGE the rear diff gears to 4.10 or
something steeper depending on what tires you have. Ater driving a Dodge
van with 360 carbed motor for manny years & my last van a 92 3/4 van that
really sucked gas 8 mpg. I DID NOT want a front wheel drive van settled
for a 1/2T shorty conversion with 3.9
It's perfect for my use
