Where is radiator drain plug 02 dodge dakota

This is a post on the Dakota forums:
My 2001 Durango and 2002 Dakota they use the same radiator. You'll have the same setup. I have recent and intimate knowledge of draining them. Crawl under the left front of the truck and look up at the bottom of the radiator. At the bottom of the driver side radiator tank (facing toward the fender) is a 3/4" long flat handled plug. Twist your hand (with a pair of pliers) up there from the back side of the bumper fascia. Grip it and give it a 180* counterclockwise twist. It is now opened and draining out the little nipple sticking straight down from the bottom of the side tank. You can stick a 5/16" (or 3/8") hose onto the nipple to drain it into a bottle or pan without making a mess.
