-   -   Towing w/Xterra? (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=445052)

Does/has anyone towed there boat w/an Xterra. I have an 06 Outback V and was wondering if my wife's 06 Xterra would tow it okay. I normally tow w/my 1500 Z71 but the steering box went out and I don't know how long it will take them to fix it. So if I wanna go ride my only tow rig is my wife's Xterra. Thanks all.

The new ones are rated at 5k i think...but i wouldn't tow it too far. Too short a wheelbase to do any long hauls safely.

My lady and I have an 07 Xterra and I have though about towing the boat with it. I don't have a hitch on mine yet so I have not. I have an 07 GMC Serria so I have not got to tow with the Xterra. I think It could but I wouldnt tow to far they have a ton of power for a V6 4.0

I have an 06 Nismo Frontier, and as said before, it's a great rig for just towing around town and to/from the ramp. If you have to go anywhere that requres some distance and hills, get a friend who has a diesel or a big v8/10. <BR> <BR>I think the furthest I have towed is about an hour away. I need to put an additional tranny cooler on this spring if i decide to tow it alot. <BR> <BR>Oh, and I have an 01 X-Star on tandem.

Hey Jay, where do you live? We've got a sierra and xterra in our driveway too, along with a non-standard boat (MB)...kooky.

Tony I Live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I dont have my GMC yet I get it tommorow I had to order it because I got the 6.0 Vortec max engine and I could not find one with the options I wanted. I sold my F 150 I can't wait to get my new truck. I will have a Black 07 GMC, Dark Grey 07 Xterra off road and a Blue &amp; White 05 Centurion Lightning. My driveway is full.

There's someone I've seen twice pulling a 23 LSV without a problem.

kinda scarey when the tow'ee weighs more than the tow'er...good luck, hope you're not on the same highway that I'm on!!!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0>
