I call mine Black Widow or sometimes BDub, but I call it that for 2 reasons, it was originally Red but someone painted it Black, and that paint is kinda flaking off and it reminded me of that red mark on Black widow spiders, and I also have an 82 Chevy C10 that is a darkish red that I named Scarlett Johansson, because she's my Hollywood crush, so I thought it appropriate to name my other Truck after one of the characters she plays!

It depends.

When it's running right, I call my Dakota "her" or "the truck".

When it's not, it's ... well, let's just say I can curse in Klingon and Ferrengi also. :ROFLMAO::p

Not a Mopar thing but I can’t tell you how many square body Chevy trucks were named “the silver bullet”

My daughter was 4 when she called it “Black Lightning” lol. Now she’s 17 and is too scared to learn to drive it

That’s a killer shot! Is that before the body lift? The exhaust looks to be right up under the bumper like how it used to be.

Thanks, one of my fav pics of it. That’s a shot from before the 3” body lift when it justhad the leveling kit and blocks on the leaf springs. It looked better at that time because it also had wheel spacers which I got rid because they were eBay junk and I didn’t trust them. I liked the look though and I want to get better quality spacers soon because they did look pretty good. But I thought the truck rode very rough and the angles with the leveling kit and blocks were way too steep for this truck. Ate through front end parts like crazy. I’m going to move the exhaust pipes up eventually but I tried and couldn’t get them loose. They are fused on. I do think the truck looked better with the leveling kit than with the body lift. But now with the body lift I love the ride quality.
