Wondering what these old trucks run in the 1/4 mile? My Dad recently bought a brand new Colorado, and the dealership wasn't going to give him squat for his 2000 Dakota with 108k miles as a trade. So he literally just gave it to me. Over the last few weeks I've completely cleaned/detailed the interior, gutted the crusty Infinity stereo and replaced it with all aftermarket components, and have started changing all the fluids and filters.
The car is a 100% stock 4x4 club cab Dakota with 3.92 gears. What did these run in their prime? The weather here won't dip into the negative DA until mid-Oct or so, and by then I should have everything all freshened up and ready to go. So what should I expect? Would it be better to launch it in 4WD or 2WD?
BTW, future plans include a Magnaflow single cat Y-pipe and catback, CAI, manual fan delete (this truck has an electric fan already installed from the factory), and a Superchips tuner or a canned tune from FlyinRyan.
