    Hello All. New Canadian member here,

    While in the process of selling my 2009 Nissan Frontier Pro 4x, (still for sale) I found and picked up a high mileage 01 SR5 Double Cab. This truck is a 2 owner (second owner being a sales rep) local truck since new. Due to the shape and condition of the truck I felt confident in the amount of kilometers balanced with the recent maintenance he had done. (new tranny, front shocks, battery, CV's)

    As soon as the Nissan sells, I will change the timing belt and get new tires. The tires are worn unevenly and I am getting a crappy noise from it. So I will put on as big as I can without lifting. Eventually doing the Bilstein 5100/Eibach & AAL lift. I wouldn't mind a wider stance with what I have now, but I'm not sure about running spacers on stock rims without lifting it.



    Here it is

    I look forward to reading and searching more as this has been a great and informative site so far.

    Thank you for the welcomes!

    The truck has 380,000kms or 236,000 miles.

    It is all highway kilometers. The truck was not detailed when I picked it up and under the hood was still in super clean condition.

    I am in the process of buying a house, so getting rid of the Nissan truck payment all together and picking up the Taco for 6k made sense. I drive a total of 10km (6 miles) a day return trip to and from the office.

    I look forward to messing around with the Toyota and seeing how many more miles I can put on it.
