    Thanks for the compliments guys


    Yeah, but apparently it isn't campatible with most D44 hardeware due to an odd spline count. It sounds like Nissan changed just enough to make aftermarket upgrades a little harder.

    It's a Dana44 design, but it's not a genuine Dana axel -- Nissan makes it. And you're correct, most aftermarket stuff doesn't work in em.

    But sweet ride. I think it's a much better buy than the Tacoma, right now. Can't argue with that price! That's a 2wd, right? I'd take one like that 4wd with the roof rack, and different color. But you have to love that tranny and motor! Such a smooth and peppy combination!

    Nope, it's a 4x4. The price is including the $500 recent grad. discount too.

    Yeah, it's peppy for sure. Unfortunately, you can't turn off the ABLS (without pulling a fuse). It's really a pretty good system, it let me get a little crazy in the snow without stopping the fun. Burnouts are a no-no though

    I testdrove a Titan and it had no problem dropping a smoking 11 from a stand-still... I would have assumed the lighter, smaller frontier with it's better power/weight ratio would be able to do the same ???

    2007 models are equipped with a limited slip system that uses ABS braking to stop spinning tires. The ABLS, as it's called, can't be disabled (you can by unplugging a fuse). It's the ABLS that won't let you smoke the tires.

    However, pre 2007 models don;t have this feature. Some mag article I read reported a 6-speed 2005 Nismo as burning the tires all the way through 1st and 2nd gear, and chirping 3rd. I can easily believe it.

    Well, the Titan's have had ABLS since introduction... so I smoked the tires with ABLS.

    And if I don't go fullsize with my next vehicle, the Frontier is the front-runner... Do you know any ill side effects from removing the fuse?

    I didn't know that about the Titan...I wonder if the Frontier's system is more limiting.

    With that fuse pulled, the you can't go from 2x4 to 4x4 hi or lo. So, you need to engage the drive of your choice, then pull the fuse. You can get more info about it at clubfrontier.com
