New To Me.....

Now, it just so happens that a friend at work just bought a newer 4x4 because he bought a large boat and he needs to get rid of his current truck. So I asked him what he wanted for it and he said I just need it gone I have no room for it with the boat and new truck. We talked a bit and I drove it and looked over every inch. We agreed on $1600. It's a 2002 Dodge Dakota Sport 4-door pickup. It's 2 wheeldrive, fully loaded power everything even has heated mirrors. It is so clean inside I was almost afraid to step in it when I test drove it which by the way rides like a caddy for being a truck. It is immaculate inside and out and I now see why if he didn't need a bigger truck he wouldn't have gotten rid of it. It has 81k miles and should do me well for sometime. I don't have any pics yet but until then here's a pic of one exactly like it from the internet. Only difference is mine is black.

The PO had done a diesel conversion and lost compression about 2 yrs later. I got it for a song.
Then I found out the tranny had to have some exotic torque converter to work with the V6 I bought. Then the transfer case had issues. Got that dealt with and found out the fuel pump was wrong for the carb.
Got it running and driving (nice ride) but on the way to the inpection station, I lost brakes due to a failed master cylinder.
Got it home, cleaned the stains from the seat (kidding) and put it up for sale. I was done.
The 'Kota sounds nice. Can't wait to see pics, sounds like you got a steal.
