Hey guys, new to the forums.. My trucks a single owner 2005 Dakota Laramie in patriot blue, with all the SLT options (some special from the factory).. My dad bought it new, and I inherited it. We both LOVE this truck!! Ive recently had to replace the transmission (120K miles) due to a broken shaft.. and ive rebuilt the front end twice (60k and 120k, seems to need it at 60k intervals with towing and heavy use).

MY current issue is, Im trying to figure out if we got ripped off, because the truck was supposed to have an HO motor option in it (says so on window sticker even) but my VIN plate has a regular N for the motor code.......

2005 Dakota had a 'Late Availability' option for the HO motor. But the 8th position of the VIN should be either J (HO motor) or N (Not HO motor). Get a copy of your build sheet (Link below), which should state which motor that you have.

Dodge build sheet.
Under Your Vehicle on the left, click on Equipment Listing.
Put your VIN in the equipment listing box and there it is.
