2006 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
The drive train on this truck is rock solid. The 4.0 begs to be revved but still has surplus power off idle. I optioned the 6 speed manual that came mated to a Dana 44 rear axle, heavy duty stuff for a midsized truck. I have used my truck extensively off road in the Adirondacks and found its size ideal for mountain fire roads.

People have complained about the plastic interior. I find this a non- issue as it is easy to clean and won't tear or rip. I installed an AirAid cold air intake and throttle body spacer and improved my mpg by 4 to 23 CTY 27 HWY while increasing power.
