    Default ISO for 1998-1999 CC RT in Deep Amethyst color

    As the subject line says, I am in search of a Dakota RT Club Cab in the Deep Amethyst color.

    Would rather to have as mush upgrades to it over pure stock ones. The more detailed description of those Mods are preferred.

    I am flexible with the location it is in.

    Yeah I am already in the middle of working it out with the owner. Will be going to the Bank tomorrow to work out the details and ask about how to pay for it and get the title without getting screwed.

    Also looking up quote for shipping. So far the cheapest quota I got was $1,295.

    About 2500 miles (35 hours)from where it is in CA, to where you are in FL.
    https://www.google.com/maps/dir/West...29.9012437!3e0

    If you can get about 17 mpg, and figuring gas on the high side of $3.50/gal, that's only a little over $500.00 in gas. about 3.5 days driving.

    One-way flights are less than $300.00.

    I can understand you wanting to have it shipped, just in case...

    Good luck.

    Yeah I thought of that option too. I might just do it and get a road trip and get to know the truck better. Only scary part is I would not know if it is reliable enough to make the trip.

    I know that the tires are brand new and the owner will be sending me the service report from the dealership that he used for the service of that truck so I know what has been done to it.

    If everything looks good, I might just fly in and get it and drive home. I can just sleep in the truck instead of booking hotels.

    I finally got the Truck I wanted.

    Had to get it shipped here from California.

    The truck is so mint with no rust at all!!

    What has been done to it so far:

    By the previous owner:

    Mopar CAI
    Viper wheels and tires with spacers 18X10 front and 19X13 rear
    All Poly in front suspension
    2/4 Belltech drop kit
    Cowl hood
    Brand new paint job with a shade lighter color

    What I have done so far:

    Repaired the power steering pump leak
    Replaced the carpet

    Waiting on parts and should be completed by March:
    Adjustable sway bar links from a Honda for my rear sway bars
    Transmission valve body assembly from MSaine
    Full fluid flush and replacement in everything (Engine, Cooling, Transmission, brakes, and Rear axle)

    Future Mods:
    Adding the missing RT stickers and "V8 Magnum" emblems
    also the rest focusing on gaining performance
    408 Stroker with headwork and intake and forged internals (will upgrade transmission at that point)
    headers
    exhaust
    Turbo or SC
    brakes upgrades to Wilwood
    HiPoTek frame brace and Pandard arm
    All poly in rear along with body mounts

    A little late to the congratulatory party, but looks like you got a great deal, and a clean R/T to make it yours.

    What tire brand and size dose it have?

    Anyone know if the previous owner is or was a member here?
