Purchased prod date 11/04 on 1/05, numerous problems [eng rattle, hard pull right, r/r dr pnl incorrect, clunk in drivetrain accell/decel, shudder 3-4 shift trans, brk pedal squeak, washer nozzles misaligned, rolls too far in park, hood & sunvisors vibrate, r/f rear seat trim panel broke off, r/f a pillar rattle, a/c knobs loose, prk brake out of adjustment, frt windows grind up/down] dealer said normal- not!!! Traded back in for same model later prod date 03/05-different characterist truck-no problems. Love the truck-awesome power 4.0L, ride, handling great, bigger than my 01 nis frontier 2wd cc xe; electric blue screams buy me! Love the red dash lights & fact sprayed bed liner!
Eng power, turning radius; seats are rugged, will last a long time! Rear doors open wider; larger cab & bed, 265- r75-15 tires, sits like a 4wd but a 2wd!
Add cassette to am/fm/cd player; illuminated cruise switches, correct noisy brake pedal switches, can hear water swishing in dash on pass side; change tire manufacturer [size awesome!] Rear sliding window instead of heated back glass on crew cab models.
