  1. Moses, I watched the SEMA video regarding the new Cummins 2.8 I4. That sounds like an outstanding package for us Jeepers (and others). How fun would it be to run the trail rig and tow rig with Cummins power! As I mentioned in a different post, I recently returned to pickup truck ownership with the purchase of a 2016 Nissan Titan XD PRO4X with the Cummins 5.0 turbo diesel V-8. The Nissan has been great, but I've only got about 1,000 miles on the clock thus far. Seems like some owners have had some issues with the new turbocharger setup (as compared to previous applications of the ISV 5.0 V8), but Nissan appears to be aggressively working to resolve those. Being a diesel, I don't expect lightning fast acceleration with this truck, but I certainly have no complaints regarding performance to date. I can update here once I've towed a significant load with the truck--probably the next Jeep club event. Like the Ram trucks with the Cummins ISB6.7, the Titan XD employs torque management software in the transmission that limits application of the 555 lb-ft of torque in 1st and 2nd gear. If you look at the specs, (310 HP and 555 lb-ft), this engine is comparable to the Duramax engines circa 2004/2005/2006. Many have criticized the engine as underpowered and outstripped by the 3/4 ton competition, but I would counter that this model was not really intended to replace those trucks, rather it's designed to cater to the folks (like me) who have been unsatisfied towing at the max capability of the 1/2 ton gas trucks, but don't really need 3/4 ton capability 99% of the time. I've owned a Sierra 1500, a Sierra 2500HD gasser, a Sierra 2500HD diesel (purchased new) and now the Titan XD. I also have experience towing with a Ram 3500HD dually. My favorite until now was the Duramax Sierra, but it was really too much truck for what I needed. I got military pricing on it, and the fairly basic SLE model cost more way back in 2007 than the Titan XD PRO-4X I just bought. For me, the XD represented a cost effective way ($14,000 off sticker) to get into a diesel truck that will handle a serious load without the drama you get towing heavy with a gas truck. I know it's not the right truck for everyone, but it fits well for me. Folks claim you can get a new diesel from one of the big three for similar money, but I certainly couldn't find them, except possibly a few stripped down work truck models. My PRO4X model came stock with all terrain tires on 18" wheels, hill start and hill descent assist, an electronic locking rear differential, navigation and a backup camera, in addition to power accessories you would expect in this class of vehicle. I also got the audio and utility packages which include an upgraded stereo, bed lighting and a cargo management system consisting of side and bed floor rails and moveable cargo cleats. I also really appreciate that all Titan XD's come from the factory with a gooseneck hitch and safety anchor points installed in the bed (which has factory spray in bed liner as well. One potential weakness of the XD is it's relatively low payload rating compared to the 3/4 ton trucks. My PRO4X model has a bed capacity of "only" 1,744 pounds. This is a limiting factor when towing a gooseneck/5th wheel trailer. This is the first full size medium/heavy duty pickup I've seen that has a HIGHER bumper pull capacity than gooseneck/5th wheel, and it's basically because of payload capacity in the bed (and perhaps the semi-float rear axle). The upshot of this restriction is a comparably great ride. While my old Sierra HD was a workhorse, it never let you forget it was a heavy duty truck. Due to it's slightly softer rear spring rates, the Titan XD rides almost as well as my old Sierra 1500 4X4 with the Z71 package. For me, the trade off in max towing capacity for a comfortable ride was not a detractor. For someone needing a vehicle to handle 9-10,000 pound loads with little drama and great longevity, I think the Titan XD with the Cummins represents a great fit. The current incentives on these trucks, coupled with the outstanding 5YR/100,000 mile BUMPER-TO-BUMPER warranty make it a vehicle worthy of consideration for those needing a "5/8ths" ton truck.
