Rescuing Toyotas is fun ~ I have owned ALL brands of full size trucks, and both Toyota and Nissan in which my 97 Nis is my third. This one I won't be getting rid of... EVER! It is amazing what this truck can do with 130ish horsepower. I've pulled out every make and model from mud, sand, snow and everything in between and that all done with a completely stock Nissan! This is hands down the best truck I have ever owned and probably the reason they made only cosmetic/minor mechanical improvements in the 14 years of making it. As Ive read in some of the reviews, this truck being named a poor mans Toyota is absolutely absurd. No Toyota has ever matched any of my Nissans PERIOD :) Cheers
Ease of do-it-yourself, longevity, overall perfection to cost ratio.
None, but if I wanted to pay extra... horsepower and a delux interior package.
