1992 Nissan Hardbody Pickup Extended Cab 4WD 3.0 V6 from North America
Reliable, dependable, comfortable, indestructible!
Starter and A/C.
Amazingly reliable! I believe the 3.0 V6 motor to be the best motor made. She’s got 220k on her and I bought it with 60k. The 5 speed is just as good. Motor and tranny are quiet.
The front end is super tight, have not replaced any parts, just a couple of sets of shocks.
Change oil and filter every 3500 miles. Change the timing belt and tensioner and water pump every 100,000 miles with new coolant. And hoses.
Change fuel filter every 50000 miles. Change brake fluid when dirty.
Change air filter ever 25000 miles.
My beat up 26 year old truck uses no fluids. No drips underneath, bone dry, just an amazing vehicle. People rant and rave about the 4 cylinder Toyota motor which I had in an 86 Xcab. But the 3.0 Nissan motor is better, smoother, way more power. Perfect gear ratios with the 4.10 rear end gears from factory. 2800 RPM at 60mph.
If you can find one, buy it.
