The market for a midsize pickup is
extensive. My requirements were 6
cylinders, man trans, 4wd and extended
cab with one of those sliding rear
windows. To find exactly what you are
looking for takes time. I liked the
nissan for the clearance it offered off
the ground and the supposed good
mileage while still havin a little bit
of ass to it.
So far it performs well on the beach, i
did get it stuck (had my cousin pull me
out) but that was due to pilot error.
It has the necessary power, but mileage
is not ideal. ive only had it a couple
months so im still finding the ideal
gear spots. it tends to be a bit noisy
in the low gears though.
design is cool,should
reinforce brush guard with
metal, esp at the bottom.
could care less about the legroom in
back excab. its mostly
for chuckin stuff, people if
they need a ride from bar, like the
jump seats forthat.
Speakers marginal bedliner
was chafin paintBetter wipers side
rear windowsdont open.Maybe a 60/40
Too many warnings on the visors.to
shift back from 4wd easier
Lockbox to the tailgate acessed by
removing 2small screws, not a deterent
When I purchased this truck, I knew
Nissan trucks had a great reputation
for dependability (I've personally
known many to last 250K+ miles without
a worry), but now you can add practical
and fun to their reputation. With all
the features, (i.e. crew cab, CD
changer, V6, bed extender, roof top
luggage rack, etc.) this truck couldn't
be more practical, nor more fun to
Bed extender (you can drive it like a
compact truck, but it can haul like a
Nissan has already made more
improvements in the later models than I
would have suggested.
