I MIGHT be back in a Dodge, what do you think?

After selling my 02 Ram a few years ago I might FINALLY be getting back into an 97 Dakota. Take a look and LMK what you all think.
1997 Dodge Dakota Ex-Cab 4X4. 5.2L V-8, 143K miles, Transmission recently replaced as well as overall Tune-up.
31/10.5 BFG AT tires on Aftermarket American Racing Wheels. Bedliner, Matching Bed Cover with Locks. Air Raid Intake. Very clean Interior.
Excellent 4x4 to get you around all winter.

A new autostart is being installed before I pick it up.
ALL for $4300

If the last owner took good care of it, you should be great shape. The 4.7L engine is strong engine.

If you start a thread, be responsible and post the final outcome.

Decisions decisions

It's more within my price range but
It's not a quad cab (not too big of a deal)
It has the 5.2 vs the 4.7
And it's got a few more miles BUt a rebuilt/replacement tranny.
Better wheels IMO
Bed cover (I like better than topper)
AND it's RED!!
Any thoughts one VS the other?
