Wohoo! About time. I will put the '07 back on my "possibles" list. Thanks for the FYI.

The 2007 is showing 4 less hp, what is that about?

It is probably the new rating system. If that is the case, losing 4hp is not bad, as some of the toyotas lost a whole lot more.
On another and more irritating note, am I to assume that the NISMO will not come with a long bed?
I also did not see any information that you can get an SE with stability control. If that is true, I would be forced to buy an LE to get a Long Bed with stability control.
Of course, then if I wanted side airbags on the LE, I cannot get stability control.
So if I want stability control, a sunroof and side airbags, I have to get a NISMO. In which case I will not be able to get a long bed, I will have a stupid subwoofer in the floor screwing up the interior loading floor, and I will have to get a depressing dark grey or blue interior.
I really want a Frontier, but Nissan apparently does not want to sell me one!!!

Did you find this info on the net or is this inside info?

Just out of curiosity, have you (or anyone else) tracked the miles you get per tank? I was able to go 405 miles on 1 tank -o- gas which is just about 19 gallons, so 21 for me as well.

It seems that all manufactuers have strange limits and exceptions on options. I wanted side airbags on my SE CC, but had to get the sunroof to get the side airbags! The sunroof takes up too much ceiling pace for my height, so I had to omit the side airbags. Sheeesh.
I bless Nissan tho for making a mid-size 4x2 CC truck with a 6-Speed stick -- no other manufacturer offers that. (With Toyota, ya have to get the 4x4.) Any option tradeoffs were worth it to me to get that combination.

The best I've gotton yet is 22.7 MPG Hwy. with my '06 SE CC 4x2 6-Speed. Most of my tanks average 21-1/2 to 22 MPG. Getting anything over EPA estimates (21 MPG in our case) is pretty impressive in my book.

Asa: I have the same truck as you, except its an 05, and I reported on one road trip from Central CA to the Bay Area 25/26 mpg, my advice is leave it in cruise control at about 70-75, because strangley I found that driving closer to 65 and slower gets me LESS mileage, maybe because of low manifold pressure?
#1800 of 2122 Oil pressure problem
Jul 15, 2006 (10:52 am)
Just dropped my 2005 LE 4x4 off at the dealer to stay a while.Had it serviced a week ago and three days ago the oil pressure gauge started to peg when revving the engine starting off. I took it in today and they changed oil and filter again, but it didn't help. The service mgr said they were going to call Nissan Monday to see if is an oil pump problem. Not sure if I have a lot of faith in these guys if they can't figure that out on their own. Is there a known issue? Thought this engine was bulletproof. Watched the service writer and the mechanic stand under the truck scratching their heads, not a good sign. It's a V6 with 6350 miles on it. Let me know any info you have. I'll keep posted. OBTW, love my truck, we also have a 2005 X with same engine and my wife loves it! My son has a 2005 X off road and that's right, he loves it!!
