How new is your mates Navara? As the latest upgrades have included rear suspension modifications that apparently should improve the issue of being on its arse when towing. Although I’ve not had much of a problem with that tbh, I think if it’s on its arse then the hitch height is probably wrong?Having had 3 Amaroks for last 7 years I'm somewhat biased ...my current V6 is an absolute flyer...and easily modded to 320bhp which is frankly stupid . Happily sit on mway at 80 on long mway trips...pushes beemers out of way if required..
But it's silly money and now discontinued.
So for the money I'd deffo look at navarra, mates got one and it's drags his KX027 around happily but is on its arse.. coil springs just dont cut it imo on work truck?
Get out and try some.
The latest Navara certainly sits differently to the previous version, and feels different. Apparently many of the 2020 mods and upgrades to the Navara have come from the Merc, but since that is now discontinued it left Nissan free to adopt the improvements and developments made in conjunction with Merc to produce the X Class.
