    That truck should have been the unicorn truck that fit right where you describe it. But those OFFICIAL numbers are head scratching.

    Well to be fair. I do tow in the June, July, August 110į++ (AZ) summers and than add in elevation does seem to make the temp needle climb a pinch.
    No worries on flats.

    The official numbers on paper are without a doubt part of their marketing scheme. I also read that Nissan wasnít trying to step on the toes of the big 3 and get dragged into the heavy duty war. With the way the suspension and drive train is setup, thereís no doubt in my mind the Titan XD is more of a HD truck vs a half ton. Just drive one, youíll feel it instantly. It drives just like a HD and handles like one.

    I have both a eco boost and a Titan XD Cummins. If your going to be towing a lot, the Titan hands down is a better tow rig than the ecoboost. Nothing to do with power, it’s all about the weight. The Titan is heavier and handles a trailer MUCH better than a 150. 8000 pounds is nothing for a Titan XD. Plenty of guys are loading these trucks down like they are 250s with no issues. Nissan went very conservative on their payload and towing capabilities, supposedly this was done on purpose to keep them in the middle of a 150 and 250. A lot of parts on the XD are from 3500 series RAM trucks, trans, rear ends and axles to name a few. Rear suspension is the same as the Nissan 2500 series work vans etc. in short, Nissan put some pretty stout parts on the XDs.

    No the XD is not a fast truck, and it won’t out tow a F250 but it’s more than plenty for a 8000 pound camper. I’ve had zero issues with my Titan, and there’s plenty of other people who are very happy with them. For the money, it’s hard to beat a XD.
    I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with the XD. Its the lack of payload on the Cummins version that makes it semi-useless for what you get. 1700 lb of payload on a Cummins Pro4X XD is not better than any half ton and half tons generally run out of payload well before GCWR. This is why I suggested looking at the 5.6L because it has a 2500 lb payload and is more of a 5/8 ton.

    I would say the same thing about an F250 Powerstroke too. The diesel adds a stupid amount of weight and the payload suffers.

    If you are suggesting to overload the truck because its overbuilt, well, go for it. I don't think anyone else here is gunna suggest doing that.

    I understand the spec ratings on paper. But in reality, Iím not seeing this truck react to weight like a truck with a 1700 pound payload should.


    Iím not suggesting anyone do anything. Iím just pointing out the facts.

    But hell, on the farm, everything gets overloaded around here. Canít be scared.
