History
This is my replacement to the '97 I had. I bought my first truck while a Junior in high school during the spring of '08. It was a '97 Dakota SLT Club Cab 4x4 Auto with the 5.2L with Emerald Green Pearl Coat paint. Sadly it was totaled in 2011 after a head-on collision with a Toyota Avalon, the Dakota won that battle but the war was lost, both vehicles totaled.

The week before the accident I had purchased an '89 Honda CRX Hf as a 50mpg daily driver. The Honda needed some paint and body work to be road worthy and after the Dakota was gone all efforts went into getting the car done ASAP. So I drove this Honda around 7-8 months and had looked for a truck on and off until one day at work I found one on AutoTrader! Same color, engine, drivetrain, and trim level... I just had to have her.

Well that time came, one day, February 18th, 2012 my dad, fiancée of 4 days and I drove up to Madison, Ohio where we all test drove/rode and looked over the new truck. A '99 Dakota SLT Plus with all the same options and features as before. I've designated the nickname "Redemption" to the new truck as I was redeemed for what happened 8 months prior to the purchase. One day I may even get special license plates title REDMPTN.
