The manual says the truck will tow 3500 lbs. The Infiniti and trailer should bring it up to that limit +/- a few pounds.
Basically I would like to know if anyone else has towed something near that weight with their 4 cylinder, 5 speed truck. If so, is the truck a complete dog uphills and do the brakes work effectively? Though, it's always nice to hear that folks "think" it will be ok....or "my V6 tows it fine"...etc...I would ONLY like to know actual stories towing with a 4 banger Frontier.....
Thanks in advance.
