Hi, just added a 2017 Frontier to my 2011 XTerra (completing the set, I guess). Looking to take advantage of other's lessons here on the Frontier.

Eventually more of an off-road build, but I have to use this as a daily driver, so nothing too out of control. It is a KC/SV-VTP/Automatic, 4x4. Apparently, the M226 is a bit wider in the line than before, because this truck has the M226 rear, and it is neither a manual nor a Pro-4x. It does not have the locker, but for the difference in price, I thought this was a better place to start for me.

You're either mistaken or you scored!
~ I'm not seeing the M226 in any KC except the P4X - according to nissanproduct.info.

My mistake, I misread the promotional literature (dealer brochure), obviously need new glasses to deal with the microprinted notes about Dana 44 standard on SVs (only for crew cab, 4x4 manual if I am reading it right now). Looked underneath, 8 bolt cover, so I think that means the C200K. In my defense, I was thinking that they might be trying to consolidate the production--the M226 may be more expensive than the C200k, but I would think that keeping two sets of axles going has its own costs.
