Uphill mpg with Supercharger engaged

I Love It, It Looks Good, And Performs Even Better — I loved the appearance of this truck from the moment I saw it. The supercharger performs like a champ, especially when I installed the K&N Filter. 4WD comes in handy during the Tahoe Winter season! The longer bed seemed to be a hassle at first, but has since proven to be a necessity when hauling 4 guys' gear up the mountain. I love this truck!

Pros

Powerful engine and stylish design.

Cons

Burns a lot of gas.

Considering The Times, You Would Have To Really Love This Vehicle In Order To Own It. — This pickup was quite powerful and the v6 engine gave a nice roar but, it sure does drink gas like crazy. The design was very nice as well but the interior was a bit too cramped. It handled well and had fairly good brakes for a pickup. It did however, need repairs here and there at times but that was probably because it was crashed by the previous owner. Overall, I would say that this vehicle combines power with style perfectly and is pretty fun to drive.

Can't get 30 mpgs but pretty close if you try.

Gets You From A To B. Nuff Said. — its a commuter truck... only problems have been the battery but nothing that is the manufacturer's fault. Will probably last a long time. Also, its cheap to maintain and is great to learn how to drive stick on. I wish i had the v6 sometimes, though.

Average — dislike the short bed love the manual 4 wheel drive. Drives well and holds in corners not the fastest in class but can hold its own. the car is fun to drive especially in fresh mud and can usually get itself out.

I Love The Truck, My Family Just Got Too Big For It. — Driving around town and making trips was great. Anyone who wanted to ride in the rear seat had a snug fit and the passanger didn't have as much room when someone was behind them. handeled great in the snow. Love it but need to sell it.

Nissan Frontier — A really powerful engine, although the top speed is limited, its a really nice ride. Accelration is amazing, and fuel efficiency is just right. It has a Rockford Fosgate siund system and that is a plus. Definetly a fun car to drive. Out of 10 this car is a solid 7.3

If Your Looking For Somthing Fun To Drive And Does Awesome Off Road For Ifs, Yeah. — Misunderstood, and built like a tank. Who would know Nissan would put an axle in that equivalent to a Dana 60? Not that much horse power but stupid amounts of torque. Perfect for rock crawling. Hehe. Small but very strong aftermarket.
