I am thinking about trading my truck ('06 Dakota ext. cab V6 2wd) for a new dakota. I think the new front end is much better and I want space for more people. I figure if I am going to pay for a new truck I might as well get a V8 and 4wd too (the mpg difference is minimal). What are OT's thoughts on this new truck. I guess the new one has 302hp with the 4.7 V8. It's not as big as some of the "midsize trucks" now and has more power. I also don't want a fullsize.
