    96 Dakota rear speakers

    You remove the trim panel & the speaker is mounted to it, at least on regular cabs, extended cabs I'm not sure, but I would guess they were installed the same way. The speaker grills are made into the trim panels.

    Oil pan fitment

    Thanks for the info folks. I was pretty sure that Magnum motors (MPI 1992-2003?) were different, crankshaft wise between a 5.2l & 5.9l. just like the older 318 & 360 motors. I guess if I do this, I will have to buy the Milodon oil pan, cause' I'm pretty sure their the only ones that make them...

    Oil pan fitment

    Anyone know if an oil pan from a 2nd Gen Dakota with a 5.9 Magnum will fit a first Gen Dakota with a 5.2 Magnum, or is the 5.9 Magnum oil pan different, (larger rear main seal etc.) like the 318 & 360 LA motors. I would like to put a 5.9 motor in my current 5.2l Dakota & I would like to avoid...

    95 center caps

    These are the rims I put on mine which are held on by the lugs. The chrome ones are probably held on by spring clips.

    95 Dakota V8 auto. shifting problems!

    I wanted to let anybody interested know that my tranny problem (518-46RH) is solved! A friend who is a transmission guy said it might just be the seals inside the tranny causing the problem, so I added a bottle ( 12-18? oz.) of ATP AT-205 additive & within 20 miles it fixed the problem! It has...

    95 center caps

    In have a 95 that I put the factory steel wheels on my self cause' I like the look much better than the factory aluminum ones, plus I got the 7" wide ones from a 2002 Dakota. (I had to modify the upper control arms a bit) The lug nuts hold the center cap on on mine. Some of the factory steel...

    95 Dakota V8 auto. shifting problems!

    I believe the shifting problem with my 95 Dakota is fixed! I have a friend who is a excellent old school mechanic, & he told me the seals in the tranny may not be sealing well when it's not warmed up & causing the cold shifting problem, so a I added a bottle of ATP AT-205. ($13 10 - 12oz...

    Parking Brake Blues

    I don't think there is a difference between 2 & 4wd, but my 2wd Regular cab cable adjuster, which you have pictured, should have a hooked long end that attaches to the hole at the very left of the picture, where the front double walled frame meets the mid section of the frame. The hook end is...

    FOUND 95&older magnum V8 stuff

    I will be in touch about the intake, and I am still trying to find a stock V8 T.B. so I can mod both pieces at once myself while still driving the truck. ( I'm on a limited budget ) Any other mods that I can do myself that you know of, let me know. I do have a new air temp. sensor to install...

    95 Dakota V8 auto. shifting problems!

    Thanks for the info Scoots, I'll try the valve body etc. cleaning first before I have the trans. remaned & a new T.C. Good to know about the back window also. I do have a guy that does glass only & he has done stuff for me before so I trust his work, he knows the old vehicles & what he's doing
