2011 Dodge Dakota V8

When Zach sent us a message about bringing his 2011 Dodge Dakota V8 for us to review, I jumped at the opportunity. This the last generation of the Dakota before it got discontinued, it’s a crew cab V8 4×4, and it has a few modifications that make it a bit more off-road worthy. We decided to run it up the Gold Mine Hill trail.

The 4.7L V8 was rated at 302 hp and 329 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission. Zach added a BullyDog tuner to a few more horses our of it. This Dakota sits about 3-inches of lift, a larger tire, and a custom exhaust system.

Check out all of the fun in the video below.
