    I see here that you mentioned the 4cyl 4x4. This is now being offered in Canada for the 09. Do you have one and what are your impressions?

    Sorry don't mean to hi-jack this post, if I should start a new one, I will, or moderator can move me.

    Thanks

    My two very biased cents on this is that I have never personally seen a Frontier that made me envious, nor did it make me take a second look. I'll never leave any of my vehicles stock so aftermarket mods are big in my book and the Tacoma has a ton of options. To me there is no better looking vehicle on or off the road than a lifted Taco. You just have to figure out what matters most to you and if you decide to go the Taco route, then this site will help you with the mod bug.

    im reading alot of nissan bashing here. i couldn't help but chime in...

    my frontier is an '02 and has 95K miles on it. i have had zero problems, and have only spent money on maintenance and normal wear and tear parts. i use my truck as it was intended, and she has never let me down, or left me stranded in the desert.
    i am hard on my truck, and i abuse it regularly. the motor is bulletproof and everything still works.
    don't bash nissan engineering.

    Go away you freaking troll. I'll bash Nissan engineering today and every day of the week. I owned one, it was junk, and now I own a Toyota. Deal with it.

    thanks. almost forgot to add- look underneath your taco's. you will see numerous components hanging down below the bottom of the frame rails. i.e., the gas tank, and parts of the exhaust system- even the trd exhaust. and who's bright idea was it to put the drain plug for the rear diff on the BOTTOM of the pumpkin?
    toyota's offroad package is a joke. sorry.

    ^Of course. They're trolls. They're coming here to start crap, reviving a 2+ month old thread, so they get no respect from me.

    See what I mean? We don't go on Nissan forums, of which I am a member of several I might add, just to start crap with them.

    With all due respect, Look at the rear/ underside of YOUR truck. It gives me a headache. ALso, the Toyota rear axel is leaps and bounds stronger than any nissan axel. Look at the problems Nissan has had with the Titan. Toyotas rear is a "third member", and the drain plug is very well protected against trail damage. BUT, your right, there is a BIG difference between the underside of your truck, vs. the underside of mine:

    ^LOL! You were like "all due respect" and I'm thinking, "he doesn't deserve any" but you've redeemed yourself.
