I'd avoid them. I owned a 2006 SR5 4.0L auto 4wd. I paid $16,500 for it in 2009 with 156km. Sold it in 2015 with 260km. Many, many issues along the way. In the end I was tired of throwing money at a truck with a rotting frame. It was a pain to wrench on (rust), and never really drove great (steering & driveline vibrations).
Replaced it with a 2010 Frontier Pro-4x 4.0L 6spd 4wd, Much happier with it.
My Frontier's stock size is 265/75R16. I went with P265/75R16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs. Been running them a few years without issue. It has a fullsize spare, I also pack plugs and an inflator.
I had a Tacoma with 10 ply Bf Goodrich KOs on it for five years. It was such a harsh ride, the extra weight really killed the fuel economy and braking.
Gate is closed and there's two huge boulders in the middle of the road where the pavement ends. Good luck.
Bought a Motomaster Ultra AGM a couple years ago, really happy with it. Zero maintenance, can be mounted in any orientation, good for deep cycle use. Nice thing with Motomaster is the warranty. At the time they were about $130 for a Group 27 equivalent, now they are around $200 I think.
Cheap option is a lead-acid Kirkland battery, never bought one but I hear they are solid and you can't go wrong with Costco's return policy.
Nice looking spot, I don't normally work weekends so making the next one shouldn't be an issue!
