Hello,

Retired Military and Civilian Machinist, living in Central Oregon... Home of Record since 1959.

My first Dakota was a Custom Order 2001 Extended Cab 4x4 with a 4.7L V8.

After near 150,000 miles of mixed Highway and Back Road driving... and My Br0ther-in-Law backing into the Passenger side Rear Quarter Panel...
I decided it was time to shop for a New Truck!

I really Loved my Dakota, but since they went out of production in 2011, I was stuck with the Used Market.. or Switch to another Model.

I lucked out! Found a 2008 Laramie QuadCab 4x4 with a GemTop Canopy on AutoTrader at a Dealer up in the Portland Metro Area!

It has a Clean CarFax, and 49K+ Original Miles!
The Dealer is the Original and Resale Dealer for the two Previous Owners!

The Dealer was able to get Financing at Under $240 per month... No Down No Trade-in.

My Son has his own Body Shop Business... so, will get the 2001 Quarter Panel Restored and hopefully sell it to an Oregon Winter Driver!
We get 3-5' of Snow here in the Winter... 4x4's and Front Wheel Drive are Desired!

It looks to be in great shape, congrats and best of luck with it.

Welcome aboard.
Thanks! It's as close to "New" as I would ever get on my Retirement Income!

It shows No signs of Abuse, for a 12 year old Truck.
The Dealer said the
Detailer had little to do, getting it ready for the Lot!

This one won't need to go on our back country roads, like my 2001 did...
I've since gotten a couple of UTV's (one bought, and one won from a "Test Drive" Sweepstakes) for that kind of travel.
