if I do get a hypertech chip, does this mean I'll need to use premium gas? would the chip void my warranty?

No you wouldn't have to use premium as you can program for regular. And the programmer would not void your warranty unless you did SPURTS up to 120 and your tires did blow out...cause you exceeded the rated speed of the tire...

but I am worried about the price. I love the look of both the Dakota and the sonoma/s-10, but I would want a 4x4, and I know that I am going to have to lease to keep the payments around 230-250. The Dakota (unless I got a stripped down model in puke orange) I think is out of that range. Please correct me if I am wrong!
