Meh, tires make a big difference and don't know what they were running. The Nissan seemed to have better articulation but without knowing the config on the JGC not sure if it was apples to apples... I thought the JGC did very well.

Who the hell does that kind of stuff with a damn tow bar in the receiver?!?

Re: 2014 diesel production

That nissan was built for off roading...lol and it was a v8. Did you see that wheel travel?

vs a BASE laredo v6?

Not even off road package or air suspension....and it kept up versus the clearly better ground clearance and tires of the nissan.

When I found out it was built in mid August, I took a week off work (starts monday) in hopes of flying down to Texas to pick it up. No way will it be here in time. The latest I could fly down and get back in time is next Friday. Unless it ships today or tomorrow, and there are no hold ups, it is not going to happen. The next chance I have of getting back to Texas will be 3 weeks from now, and if it comes in before that, I am stuck waiting till I can get down there.

Turn up the volume when listening to that video - the Pathfinder was squeaking and moaning the whole time.
