This is Jeff’s Muscle Truck!

The 1999 Dakota RT 5.9 is a rare gem, produced from 1998 to 2003, and holds a distinctive place in automotive history. During its time, this pickup was not only known for its rarity but also for its impressive speed, rivaling a Mustang GT in the quarter-mile and ranking second only to the Viper as Dodge's fastest rear-drive vehicle.

Under the ownership of Jeff, a passionate car enthusiast hailing from Stamford, Connecticut, this Dakota RT has undergone a series of impressive modifications. From upgrading the cam, heads, and pushrods to adding a 52mm throttle body, Mike Leach mid-length headers, High Flow Catalytic converter, MBRP Exhaust, and even a 150-shot of Nitrous, Jeff has meticulously transformed his pickup into a true sleeper. Notably, Jeff's future plans include incorporating forged internals and forced induction, a testament to his commitment to pushing the performance boundaries.

This particular Dakota RT, adorned in Solar Yellow/Viper Yellow, is a rare specimen among the 501 regular cabs built. Its unique color scheme adds to its allure, making it a standout in the world of collectible muscle trucks.

Beyond his automotive pursuits, Jeff is an artist and musician, bringing a creative flair to both his profession and his car customization endeavors. His deep-seated love for muscle cars is evident in his automotive history, starting with a 1969 Firebird 350HO and continuing with his daily driver, a 2013 Dodge Charger RT AWD 5.7 Hemi.

Jeff's Dakota RT 5.9 serves as a canvas for his automotive artistry, combining power and style to create a truly exceptional and rare piece in the world of muscle trucks.
