1987-1996 Dodge Dakota - Gen III Hemi Swap

Dodge's answer to the other small trucks coming out of Detroit was a slightly larger, more powerful truck dubbed the Dakota. Dodge even made its 318/5.2L V8 optional beginning in 1989 to further separate the Dakota from its competitors. While that was pretty hot for the time, you can take your Dakota to the next level with our bolt in Gen III Hemi swap systems.
