I decided that the aged Frontier was the better buy.
...went with a '17 SV and the money saved is going to get me P4x heavier aftermarket equipment items added!

'17 Frontier CC SV v6/6M 4x4 SB to compliment my TL1Ks and other stuff

...what to spend on first; suspension, armor, lighting?...the mod bug bites hard

Its a hard one

To be completely honest frontier needs to be up dates. It needs to come with more ground clearance also. The fact that a 2005 looks like the 2016 at a glace doesn't help. I would have to go with the Toyota on this one. I love my frontier but its out dated.

You do realize the new Taco is just a new snoot and bed over the same old chassis? People go on and on about "all new" when it ends up being the same candy bar in a new wrapper.

One of the reason I went with Nissan ... it doesn't have all the electronic wiz bangs that Toyota and GMC are pushing.

From what I keep reading from various sites, the engine/drivetrain combo is not that great in the Toyota.

But, hey each to their own. If you like the new Tacoma, buy it.

Like the the look of the Taco but it also costs more once you load it up. I'm more than thrilled with my new Pro4x - Frontier for me.

I have owned a 2000, 2009 and 2012 Tacoma, but now have a 2016 Pro 4X. When it came time for a new truck, even at the best deal I could get, a Tacoma D/C Off Road manual was going to be $33K plus taxes, title and delivery. The Frontier was $29K out the door. Also, the Gen 2.5 Tacoma (it was not a full redesign by any means) has a whole litany of issues- noises, vibrations, rear end and transmission problems, hood separations and fluttering- all stuff that should have been addressed had Toyota not sat back on their laurels. I like the Frontier due to it's simple, rugged, proven design. I don't care one lick about technology, and am too old to care what others think about what my truck looks like.

my buddy just called me yesterday to tell me of his new white TRD 4x4 crew cab.
he's in 7th heaven and i think he's probably sleeping in it. i'll ask his wife haha.
i'm going to meeting him for lunch to see who can pee further

I'd stick with the Frontier. They finally got most of the bugs worked out of them whereas the Toy 3.5L is a brand new engine that's relatively untested. The Tacoma reliability has dropped off the last few years, going by Consumer Reports. Also, they have one of the most uncomfortable seats in any vehicle! The seat padding is poor and the seating position is terrible!
