Rendering Of The Month
Krystal G. of Redding, California, sent us a rendering of her '98 Dodge Dakota. It may not be a digital rendering, but it still gets the point across that her ride is going to be badass. Her friend, Tyler, spent about three weeks drawing up the rendering of her Dakota. We can't wait to see it transform into a show-winner.

Product Of The Month
This month, we have a gleam of hope for all you Dakota owners: newly designed upper and lower '97-'04 Dodge Dakota arms by CanDo Specialties, which come complete with ball joints. The lower A-arm comes with a pre-TIG-welded lower 'bag plate, made of 1/4-inch steel. The airbag will bolt directly onto the lower plate, so there's no need to buy lower 'bag brackets. These arms were designed to lay out up to 22-inch wheels. By the time you read this, CanDo should have released it's A-arms for pre-'97 Dakota's, as well. For more information, call (530) 533-8680, or send an e-mail to

MT Junior Of The Month
Dale Hill's son, Robert, loves to check out every issue of Mini Truckin' he can get his little hands on. On top of all that, he loves to hit the switches on his dad's Mazda, and little Robert makes sure that they take it everywhere they go. The two things Robert likes most are the rides and the women. We think his face says it all.

Cool DVDs
The Counterculture comes at you like it says. It's about an hour-long movie and really never slows down much at all. Those who are looking for a movie delving deeper into what is going down on the East Coast should watch this DVD. The movie has a lot of show coverage, features, and of coarse, the minitrucker lifestyle. This movie is perfect for anyone who appreciates cool trucks, hot women, and the occasional phone pranks. Tragic Hero Records provided all the killer tracks for Counterculture that keeps the tempo upbeat. To check out more from Draggin Thru Productions, go to
