It's a great little truck. I've done a little stuff done to it I put a kn filter in it , e3 spark plugs , and a flowmaster with a bigger pipe. It's a fun truck to drive around town and gets up to speed pretty good when you want it to. It's doing great for having 150,000 miles on it. Just a oil change and it's good to go.
I just put my 2000 desert runner to pulling a 3000 lb. trailer, I modified the rear suspension and put in a weight distribution hitch on the 'ol frontier (w/v6 engine) and it works just fine. Great little truck. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this truck (w/V6 engine).

I bought my Nissan Frontier in August,
2002. I was initially looking to buy a
Toyota Pre-runner, but as I researched
several key areas (price, reliability,
maintainance, performance, owner
satisfaction) the Frontier Desert-
Runner soon became the better value. I
own 2 Toyotas, an FJ-40 Landcruiser and
a SR-5 Pickup. Both are solid,
reliable vehicles. But the Nissan is
just as trustworthy at a lot less
money. Also the Toyotas' developed
rattles from the get-go, the Nissan
remains quiet and composed.
The V-6 has more than enough power to
haul heavy loads and accelerate in
traffic. The interior is functional and
easy on the body. The steering is
stable and predictable.
The turn radius is a little greater
than I expected it to be. The braking
could use just a wee bit more boost in
