2007 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr Crew Cab 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Looked at both the Frontier and the Dakota. Chose the Frontier (storm grey color, steel grey int) due to proven reliability, also the interior materials looked much better than the Dakota. Frontier has a quiet car-like ride to it, outstanding getup and go when you need it. A/C is good and cold, getting 20-21 mpg so far on hwy. The bed extension works really well when slid up near the cab to keep stuff from sliding all over the bed. With 2 boys, cup holders throughout the truck come in real handy. Would have gotten LE Crew cab, wanted Blue exterior (can't get on SE), but would have had to have roof rack (standard on LE crew), which I thought looked ugly on truck.
Seats, 4 doors, bed liner and sliding bed extension. Outstanding power, good solid sound when you closing door. Standard stereo plays really clear. Like the 16 in tires, they ride very well, less expensive to replace than 18 in tires.
Make roof rack optional on LE or blue as a color choice for SE. Move power mirror control to armrest area near window controls, center arm rest is way too short. A switch on the dash should turn on all interior lights, instead of a ceiling control you have reach over back seat to get to.
