I have been searching the boards for some 2001 frontier owners to get some input. I am inching ever closer to buying an 01 SE Desert Runner. I have test driven the new Tacoma and even though I like the extra 20hp I get, the Nissan just "felt" better. I would love to have a Crew Cab but that's an extra $4K for the same options. I really like the stance of the DR too. What I need to know is if anyone else has a DR and are they pleased with it? Also, does anyone know what the best color to get is because I am looking at a red one but I am worried about the body color bumper on the front fascia. Will dirt and road grime chip away and discolor it?
