yes boys and girls, I have all the Dakota R/T production numbers. We can finally see how rare these trucks will be in 20 years. I've never seen all the numbers myself, so for those of us who own R/Ts and actually care about these. here you go. Now before you guys go and spooge all over the countertop because we've finally got numbers -- these do not include the color breakdowns. Just the total numbers. I did happen to get to talk with William, Senior Staff Rep. He says that the system only shows production numbers for '01-'03.... '98 - '00 show color breakdowns, but not the other years. He did not have a reason for this, but oh well, production numbers are better than no numbers.

Moderators: you might wanna "sticky" this somewhere, because I know this question comes up a lot.

Without further delay here we go.


-----------Regular Cab------------Club Cab-------------
1998---------251-------------------1183-----------
1999--------2171-------------------4110-----------
2000---------841*------------------3287-----------
2001---------556-------------------1671-----------
2002---------299-------------------1060-----------
2003---------265--------------------802-----------
==========================================
Totals-------4383------------------12,113----------

Only 16,496 Dakota R/Ts were ever made. For those of you who have no idea what that means -- that is a VERY SMALL amount for a 6 year production cycle. Although their resale value is terrible. And they'll probably never amount to any kind of collector item, I can guarantee you these things will be next to non-existent in the year 2030. I'm gonna have to find me a nice conditioned bone stock R/T one day and keep that bitch around for collector purposes.

* In 2000, Solar Yellow R/Ts seemed to have slipped through Daimler-Chrysler's database because they were only produced for very short while. Just recently I have obtained the Solar Yellow Club Cab numbers for the year 2000 (95 produced). It is believed that only 30 - 40 Solar Yellow Regular Cab R/Ts were produced in 2000. But These numbers have not been verified. So until I can get a solid number, we'll forever have to live with the asterick for regular cab numbers in the year 2000.

I wish i knew how many of my truck were made in 2000. Anyone know where i can e-mail someone about this. I would ultimately like to know what number my truck was in 2000 for black durango r/t's. (Example: #45 out of 2000)

go on to Dodge.com and email custom service. I doubt they have those numbers. But who knows. I was shocked they gave me the numbers. I told them it was for an enthusiast message board and they'd be helping us out a great deal. And holy shit, they gave me the numbers.

Those are much smaller numbers than I expected to see. Think about the Chevy 454SS truck that lasted from 1990 - 1993. In only 4 years of production they made a total of 16,953 of those and 15 years later think how many of those you see on the road.

No shit. I always guessed like 22,000 - 25,000 made in 6 years. Finding out they only made 16,403 kinda makes me wanna go buy my 100% original red RC R/T just so I can be assured it'll still be available in good condition -- not 10 years down the road...

(btw, I see you got my panel inserts today :beer: )

Wonder how I can go about to see which one of the 581 Intense Blue CC they made in 99 :huh:

Weird the numbers don't add up to this listing for the 2000 year....

I did in fact get your panel inserts today! :biggthump
damn Darren, way to rain on my parade. I totally forgot they never updated those numbers. Looks like I'm emailing DC again. Lets see if we can get a finalized set of numbers for the 2000 year. Then through calculus 3 mathematics we can use subtraction and figure out how many solar yellows were really produced in 2000 -- I will get to the bottom of this...

thats because people realized the R/Ts weren't all that and they were no longer something "new" :nana: :nana:


but it is weird why the numbers are lower.....i wonder if they only made so many per year for a reason or if they were only made when dealers asked for them?
because the 4.7 came out in 2000 and in 01 everyone caught on :jester: sorry just telling some people what they want to hear before we have to hear about it later
