    In lieu of the Pathfinder, can either the Pro-4X versions of the Nissan Xterra or Nissan Frontier be included in the lineup of vehicles tested please? Both come equipped with an electronic locker from the factory and more truly pay homage to the Nissan offroad legacy than the latest iterations of the Pathfinder. Either would make for a strong contender and are available at a price point at which a consumer might actually take them offroad. I quickly became a fanatic after I bought my SV Frontier and quickly began making modifications to make it comparable to the Pro-4X. I submit this humbly for your consideration.
