Well i have been looking into the technical of a truck to buy and right now the truck thats out in front by a longshot and hands down is a Nissan. Shure it cant tow as much (just as much as i need it to) but heres the big thing. The frames, boxed whith 6 welded cross members (same style as my luv and let me tell you that frme dosnt flex one bit). Second is the warenty, heres where things get realy interesting. Ford Chevy and Dodge warenties are void if you lift the rig and put bigger tires on em, in some cases there is even a "normal ware" clause which dosnt cover off road breakage. The nissan warenty says that the only thing they wont fix when a truck has been lifted is the suspension. And they will even fix stuff like axles blowing up becouse of off roading and good hard abuse. So shure the little Nissans are a bit under powered but so far its no contest, if Toyota and Isuzu cant match that ill be buying Nissan. Sorry for the rant.
