'97 2WD Regular Cab
Hi all,

After searching for literally YEARS I finally found my dream pickup. Every time a good one went up for sale it would get snapped up in 24 hours, I don't think people realize how valuable these 2WD regular cab models are. Finally got the chance to buy this one - only 47k miles if you can believe it and in pristine shape. I love her like a child.

I plan to make a few minor creature comfort updates but definitely want to preserve as much of the original look as possible. Planned improvements:
  • Spray-in bed liner
  • Tonneau cover
  • Backup camera with double-DIN display
  • Immobilizer

If y'all have recommendations for professional bed liner install and/or electronics install in the Puget Sound area please let me know! Looking forward to chatting with you!

Sharp looking truck. Welcome to the site.

I can’t recommend a shop for what you’re wanting to do. But there are members here that possibly live near your area.

Your truck appears to be my truck’s twin! Minus the King Cab.

5-speed or automatic transmission?

A little jealous of your swooshy decals, PorknBeans! Mine's a manual.

Welcome to IN...

Please do fill in more info on your D21, in your profile. There were differing version and knowing some of these details can really matter.

2 or 4WD, Auto/manual, 4cyl of V6? Thanks...

The 96&97 models were only 4 cylinders. No v6 option was available. I think it was emissions and obd2 related. The vg30 was dead and the vg33 was next on the list for the soon to be d22 frontier.

Oh thanks!

They are original to the truck when I bought it brand new in Feb. 1997. I have noticed very small pieces of the decals chipping off. So I had the idea of pulling them off at one point with a heat gun and having them air brushed or painted on with some texture to it.

But only if/when that time comes…

How many miles on your truck? How about your clutch? Compression numbers?

Beautiful truck!

Nice truck. I almost jumped on a flight to the northwest coast for a king cab in near perfect condition. It was sold before the trade in for a new truck could be complete.
