Overland Classifieds :: 2017 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X

Let’s face it, if a vehicle has a Toyota, Isuzu, Mazda, Honda, Subaru, or, indeed, a Nissan badge, there’s a good chance it’s just going to work. Japanese car manufacturing has become a byword for class-leading build quality and reliability. That’s not to say the vehicles produced by these companies are void of issues, but generally speaking, they’re very well made. I’ve grown up with Toyotas, Isuzus, and Mazdas, and I can honestly say that their reliability is nothing short of extraordinary. In fact, my dad owned the same Toyota Hiace for lugging heavy carpets around every day for twenty years, and the only breakdown I remember was a flat battery. It’s important to note that while mechanically, these vehicles are solid many older offerings are plagued with rust, so be sure to inspect the underside carefully. I feature a wide array of Japanese 4WDs and trucks with recent adventure-ready builds, including this 1997 Isuzu Trooper, a 2003 Mitsubishi Fuso FG 4×4, and a 2005 Toyota 4Runner. The Frontier Pro-4X is a less common truck on our forum, but when listed sells quickly. If you’d like to better understand just why this vehicle has an almost cult-like following, I’d recommend reading Scott Brady’s excellent article, The Destination Frontier, which lists this platform’s plethora of benefits. This truck can be outfitted for travel in any number of ways, with inspiring builds showcased by Softroadingthewest and All Things Overlanding. Today’s 2017 Pro-4X has covered just 49,000 miles and features premium modifications and an A.R.E topper.

From the Seller:

I’ve been debating this for quite some time. I love this truck. Bought it new. I’ve driven it to Colorado, up to Newfoundland, and down to Florida. I bought it knowing I was going to turn it into my dream truck, and that’s what I did. All modifications were done to the truck to make it more capable, durable, and useful. I have a car I drive for work now, and this thing just sits in my garage these days on a battery tender. I drove it less than 3,000 miles last year. It only costs me insurance and an oil change to let it sit, so I don’t have to sell it.”
