#7 of 15 2005 rear seats on extended cab
Oct 15, 2007 (5:04 am)
I've been looking for a newer dakota to replace my '94 SLT ext cab and noticed that starting in 2005 it appears the rear bench seat is now just 2 seats. The reason I bought my current pickup was that It was the only one in its class to fit all my three kids (10,7,3) in the back. Now, it looks like I'm stuck with either getting an '04 or a club cab.
Is there any way to make the back of a 2005 into a bench seat like the 2004's an earlier? We do not want ot get a quad cab as we like the bigger bed of the club cab.

Can someone explain what this is? I cannot find anything on Dodge's website, only 4-speed and 5-speed transmissions.

Dodge refers to the 545RFE as a multi-speed transmission because it actually has two 2nd gears. There's one ratio when upshifting from first, and a different ratio when downshifting from 3rd.

I have an '02 4.7 V8... when my gas light goes off, I have about 75 miles (highway) left. Basically you have about 4 - 5 gallons.

Off topic, but need help! Looking for answer from someone who owns a first gen 1996 Dak SLT. I own a Sport and recently had to replace the OEM alloy rims. Picked up a cheap set of (4) OEM SLT chrome rims, with chrome center cap. Problem...how do the chrome center caps stay on???? I mounted the SLT rims with the lugs from my alloy rims. When I go to put on the centercap, it partially slides over the O.D.of the lug bolt circle, but seems to bottom out about 1/2" before resting against the face of the rim. Do the SLT rims have different lugs that the Sport alloy rims? Is there a special bracket that Im missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh I'm in love with this damned truck, but my buds say stay away due to the transmission issues. It's a 98 5 speed manual ....anything else to watch out for?
#15 of 15 Considering a 2001 4X4
May 16, 2010 (8:16 pm)
I'm planning to move back up north in snow country and a local former Chrysler dealer has a 2001 Dakota 4X4 with only 34k miles. It's an automatic with the V6 and it's a regular cab. I have an 07 PT Cruiser convertible that I plan to sell or trade. Is this model year Dakota reliable? I believe it's got the 3.9 liter engine. Is the 3.9 more or less reliable than 3.7 liter found in more recent model Dakotas? Any advice is appreciated.
