I have been looking for a toyota truck for a while with no luck really.
I keep seeing some Nissan pickups around though and per $ in my area you are getting a newer, less miles, less rust.. and just overall a nicer condition truck for the money in a Nissan.

I am not familiar though with the Nissan trucks and would like some advice on them.

I am looking at 1995 reg cab, 4x4 with the 2.4L, manual shift.
no rust, very nice condition for its age. 175000 miles on it.

Is the 2.4L a good solid engine like the Toyota 22RE is?
I see it makes about 20 more hp with a loss of about 1mpg according to the EPA estimates.

Would just like to make sure it is a good engine with no major issues like Toyota's 3.0 of those years.
Any other tips or thiings i should look for on it when i go see it in person tommorrow would be great.

Thank you

Good to know on the motor. Its used so you never know for sure how it was taken care of i guess.

This will just be a commuter mainly and haul and ATV somtimes. No mods at all most likely so the lack of aftermarket shouldn't matter to me to much.

Thank you for the reply

ok, thats good to know.

But Nissan doesn't give a mileage # of when the chain is worn out and needs to be replaced? I guess what i'm saying is at 175000 miles is that somthing i need to have done to it, or is the chain somthing that lasts the life span of the engine.

I guess i'm just used to seeing the timing chain posts on toyota forums. I don't remember the mileage interval on them though.

The guide being updated before this trucks year is nice to know.
Stuff like that is why i post asking questions on these boards! :)
