Only complaint I had was be able to see the back of the throttle. I had to twist and turn my head and bend over the hood to get to the back of it.

Dakota SLT 3.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles

My truck will run fine for days. Then I'll be stopped at stop light and it will just idle down and die. I have to two-foot it for a about 5 minutes and everything is fine. Other times it will idle up to 2000rpms. I changed the throttle position sensor. (no luck)
