Hey all, my name is Sam. I own a 98 Dakota Ext Cab, which is a huge step up from my last car: 96 Mercury Tracer, which my brother trashed. I have a lot of plans for my truck. I want to turn it from stock to show. I have limited experience under the hood. I bought a Haynes manual in hopes of getting a better understanding of what I have and/or need. Currently running a 4 cylinder, but am planning on having a crate engine installed. I am also looking at purchasing a body kit. So far I have found a nice one at Cervini's. Tips would be greatly appreciated.
