Every Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep vehicle has a "body code"
 As a parts guy I don't call a Minivan a minivan, it is either a NS, RS or RN depending on year.

"AN" is 1987 to 2004 Dakotas
"ND" is 2005 and up Daks


Dak's are AN,ND
Durangos are DN,HB

Gnome, Remember that most coolant systems require a 50/50 coolant/water mix.  Then only half of the 13.3 quarts is actually coolant. So, it is only ~1.5 gallons of coolant!

And it took me this long to realize that the 5.2L isn't listed in the AN body lists.
I know the engine oil capacity is 5.0 quarts.  I don't recall the coolant capacity offhand.
