Except you donít have to have a license and you donít get stuck on a stick or a rock. I like it.

Iíd be one of the big ones that really looked good but had stayed in the grease a little too long making it tough and disappointing whoever bit me. The rest of you guys would be picked by the ladies and have frosting where your hair used to be. Possibly being ideal to sop up poutine gravy. Now thatís a thread drift.

You're killing me Karen and Ken. Apple Fritters are my weakness. Or breakfast tacos. Luckily you can kill two birds with one stone at the Original Donut Shop here in San Antonio.FB_IMG_1529363321261.jpeg

Hi,
We pulled a 19' Escape for two years and 35,000km with our Nissan Frontier with absolutely no problems pulling or swaying. The towing capacity for the 6cyl 4wd is 6000 pounds. Good luck!

My situation was somewhat different as I have a 5.0 which I pulled with a 4WD Frontier. Pulled easily but limited radius of turn. Last year I traded for the diesel Canyon. ❤️ I get 20 mpg at 70 mph!! Easier to maneuver with good turning radius even though itís still 4WD.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

We have the same Frontier 2014. We are pulling a 5.0TA. We are two years into our journey. The other posts are right on. We do all the tricks suggested. I did install Timbren bump stops on the rear suspension. They helped level the Frontier during tow. They didn't impact the normal ride. They help protect rear leaf springs. We are pleased with our tow for now. Frontier is guttsy. We will probably go bigger though once begin longer travels.
