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.
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.
Oh, and I have an 01 X-Star on tandem.
