Great looking truck! But Iam biest. Looks just like my 17. Only difference is there’s a flex fuel emblem below the 4x4.
And welcome

Cool. Dunno about that Flex fuel stuff. Don't think I'd use E85 unless nothing else was available. Probably runs better on moonshine! Of course the extra decal is nice, I guess!

Good morning! Your truck looks great! I picked up the 2016 Nissan Frontier SV 4x4 a couple weeks ago and I am in love with it! What I like best is the crew cab because it gives you more room for cargo -and people.

It may be the angle of the picture, but to me the truck looks a little bit low to the ground.

Attached is a picture of mine, only difference being the color - White versus Graphite Blue.

Great job on your new find!

Thanks. Hmm... I think they are sitting about the same. Dunno. Love your blue too. It was a top choice, though I believe it's Age, Mileage, Condition and Equipment all before color. I truly believe I found the best package in the country at the time. She had less than 22k miles and about 18 months (or 14k miles) left on her factory B2B warranty (plus the powertrain). As I need to work out of her I will mostly need to keep tools stacked in the back. Got 5 matching Stanley rolling boxes yesterday. Need to move tools today.

Enjoy.

Yes sir I completely agree with you! Age, mileage, condition, equipment, and warranty all Trump the color too! I lucked up with mine and found the dealer knocked $5k off the price online, and they honored it.

Would you do me a favor and send some pictures once you get the Stanley rolling boxes and tools installed? I need to do the same for mine and I am interested about the storage options available.

Yes I would say both our vehicles sit about the same height off the ground. When I was reviewing pictures I realized that.

Top box in 1st pic is Husky main tool box - may keep or transition to Stanley carry boxes. Rollers come with 2 small and smaller carry boxes and 2 trays which fit in roller and the larger carry box. Under $40 each. Got mine mostly with 11% rebate checks while rebate was on so landed price is about $37 / almost free!

Oh wow! That is an excellent deal I need to cash in on ha ha. If you choose to keep the toolboxes inside the cab, I recommend putting a cage between the front and rear of the cab, or fastening them to the vehicle. In the event of a crash they become projectiles, and I recently saw a man killed when he crashed his vehicle, and the toolbox became a projectile and caused extensive head injuries.

If you put them in the truck bed I am interested to see how that works for you. I have thought about a removable toolbox of some kind. My concern is the need to move it to haul large items, as the bed of the truck is only about 5 feet long on my vehicle.

Thanks. Rollers are wedged in by seats. Headrests will catch all but the smallest items. Can tie handles together, pull tarp over tops or other tricks. Piece of thin plywood would also work. Dog barrier I once owned would be almost perfect. Will see what is needed. Appreciate the thoughts!

I have the Utilitrac system so sliding/removeable box is an option but bed length is a concern. She also came with the gate extender and 4 tie down cleats. Just wanted to see what almost free inside bought me. Pretty happy so far and still have one more set!

I LOVE the util-trac system our trucks have! They really come in handy, and it’s great you got the cleats with it too. I have to get some ordered, as mine did not come with them. Another addition I want are fishing pole holders for the track system and an antenna mount as well.

I am glad you are enjoying your new truck!!

Love to see those! Antenna? Ham? CB?

Yeah. I think I lucked out. Truck was on a Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram lot. They got Crew cab and SV but didn't show 4WD and the extra value package! I actually resorted to making notes on pix to compare vehicles. I think the missed marketing close to $6k in added value items. Below were my clues and notes. (They took crappy pix too!) Even got fog lamps which almost no one had!

Oh wow that is a steal!! Mine was valued at $29k and I bought it for $6k under.

It is an amateur radio antenna I want to put on the truck bed. So far I have it on the hood, everything ran underneath the dash, and ran through the clutch grommet and everything is placed underneath my driver’s seat. The remote head goes to the dash. I will attach some pictures for you to see. Also most importantly, I DID NOT drill any holes. I don’t like holes ha ha.

Cool. Yes. Drilling is bad! Once took out AC on a new 911 when audio shop owner told me to drill though firewall rather than allow time to fish wire!

Later heard they had a guy torch a steel beam in the door to try to fit a speaker! Door sagged as hinge got hot and paint chemically bonded with the metal. They actually thought they were going to return the car to the customer in about an hour without telling him what they did, as if he wouldn't have noticed!

That is incredible... whatever I do, I do it honestly. All you have at the end of the day is your word, and if you loose that you become truly broke.

I can see how that would not just put a bad taste in a customer’s mouth, but they will also share their experience with everyone who will hear! Word of mouth can be good or bad, depending on how you treat people.

For me a rule of thumb is this: It takes ten positive reviews to make up for one negative review.

Indeed! Needless to say... He is out of that business and the business is now closed.

Killer thing is even when lying on my back, we working upside down in a trunk I would happily stop to meet with a customer and salesman to make sure they bought and sold the right stuff.

I left there to work for the professional installers they called in when they were smart enough to do so or to get the right stuff. I recall being shown how to take a window crank and door panel apart. "There's a tool for that?"

Imagine even if you could have acid-etched the door panel so it would take the paint again (after repairing the hinge)... You think you could get it back by 5pm that day, the guy wouldn't smell the fresh paint and how you NOT going to tell him how many days he needs to wait before waxing it?!?
