Thank you haha I will try
if you go bigger with tires, you would really really help yourself out with lower gears. being 2wd, that won't be too expensive either.
What does it have for gears right now?
You can probably clear 33s right now.... Definitely with a levelling kit.
That V6 is gutless in a Dakota, lol. You need more power.... Go with at least a 4.56 in the rear end to help with that.

Agreed, a set of 4.56 gears would really make it driveable again, after some 33s
Currently the truck is stock so whatever gears come stock. 3.55? I’m not too sure but from what you and everybody else says then I’m gonna trust you and if I go with the 2” level and put 33” then I will go for a 4.56 set of gears
Find out what it has, either by looking at your pinion stamp, or just simply calling the dealer with your VIN. There are some on-line final drive calculators we can go to and find out what the best gear ratio is. 4.56 is very common for modern OD trans, and 33s, but it would be nice to be sure!
For instance, my Jeep has an OD 5 speed, and I have 4.88s with 33s, and can still do 75 mph. We want to get your highway speed in the meat of the cruising range of that engine.
