1997 Nissan Truck XE 2dr Regular Cab SB


When I recieved this truck from my
father upon my sixteenth birthday in
2001 I admit I was a little
dissapointed. But that has all changed!
My friends and I go offroading thru all
kinds off muddy hell holes, up
embankments and thru lakes and ponds. My
little 2wd nissan stands up to the test.
I've put this little truck thru more
testing than any company or magazine and
I just love its performance
capabililties. It's just as great on the
road (I even smoked my friends civic off
the light and down the street!)

Best Features

I love the rear leafs, much stiffer than any other small pickup. And manual is a must to get the full enjoyment out of it. But best of all I get the feeling that this little truck likes to prove itself.

Worst Features

Lift it (body or suspension), larger tires (at least 235/75/r15), beefier gearing (up to 3.83 or 4.10 is nice), and finally, add a positrac (or similar) rear end to 2wd models.
