I always wanted a Syclone...

Back in 1998, I bought a new Dodge Dakota R/T (360, lowered, 17inch wheels)... Paled in comparison to the Syclone (only ran 15.2 in the quarter)... But it was a fun sporty truck. 15 MPG no matter how I drove it...

When I bought it, it had something like a 5000 lbs tow capacity (I was thinking I could actually tow my Chevelle)...

after about a year, Dodge revised the tow capacity to 1000 pounds (or something, a LOT lower than originally stated), something about the larger axle tubes and lowered suspension causing axles to break when loaded...

Once you go RAT, you never go back...
