    Hey guys, check this out, the new 2008 dakota have now rear drum brakes, before the 2005 model has 4 wheel disc brakes :p, so I don't know if they do it because it's better or if because it's more cheaper. There must be a good reason. And why the dakota extended cab is very long compared to the tacoma access cab? The bed is approximately the same, maybe because the front is more longer:confused:?

    I'm sure since Toyota's are #1 in sales, there probably just following Toyota's lead. However, my guess is Dodge ultimately made the decision to switch back to drums due to the cheaper production costs.
