Does a 1995 Dodge Dakota Sports Reg Cab have an exhaust

This answer was rated:

Does a 1995 Dodge Dakota Sports Reg Cab have an exhaust system that has one bracket holding up the muffler and then one bracket holding the opposite end of the tailpipe?
JA: How many miles are on the car? How has your MPG been lately?
Customer: it has 175 miles and I don't know about mileage. There is one for sale and i need an old pickup that has an exhaust system that has only 2 brackets holding up the muffler and tailpipe for a court case I am working on. The seller of the dakota does not know the answer
JA: Are you fixing your Dakota yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: i have not bought it because I dont know if it has only 2 brackets. I will have a mechanic deal with it if I buy it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: It would be helpful to know appx how much it would cost to cut off the tailpipe.
JA: It can cost anywhere from $10 to $100, depending on the type of issue and how much of the Mechanic's time your question is expected to take (how complex and lengthy an answer you require).
Customer: okay. I just want to know how many brackets hold up the muffler & tailpipe.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

What liter engine is in this model here so I can see if I can check this?Is this 4wd as well?

Let me know,thanks Pete

It is a 2wd. Don't know about liter engine, but it is a Sport Reg Cab.

Do you know if it is a 4 cylinder, V6 or V8 engine by chance as all 3 of these were an option on this model and can make a difference on the exhaust system components?

It's a 4 cylinder manual. The owner is at work. If its that hard to figure out I can skip it. I just can't seem to find the schematic for a 1995 Dodge Dakota on the Internet for some reason, or I would know how many brackets there are.

Here is the diagram layout for this exact year and model with the 4 cylinder engine.I see 2 hangers one at the rear of the muffler and one at the rear of the tail pipe area.
