I do think the added torque has a lot to do with it, but also am wondering if some rubber parts could be deteriorating, as it does seem worse than last year.
Hey, Jetforeman, those Nissan pickups are made out of good stuff, I had one I put over 350K on before passing it along to my son. Also had several long-lasting Z cars, actually still have a 2+2 that I should get rid of, but it still runs like a clock.

"Old Blue" (Nissan) is a tough cookie. I adjusted the valves on it last year for the first time in it's life!! And I barely had to make any adjustments.....And get this, last week I had an emissions check done on it and it blew cleaner than my E320 I just got rid of. I just shake my head in amazement and run the piss out of it. You would be surprised at how many people have stopped by my house in passing wanting to know if I would sell it. The answer is always and will always be a resounding NO!!
