Not wanting to add to yer misery but the Titan XD is NOT a good choice. The Cummins has been a gross disappointment in power and fuel mileage. With almost any puny trailer, single digit fuel mileage is common. Not that the engine gets good mileage anyway-about 15-16 averagely. The engines are going thru DEF like water. A dealer service of an oil and filter change, and a fuel filter will knock a hole in 4 one hundred dollar bills so big there's not even enough left for McDonalds. The Aisin transmission is a major flaw and even with the newest updates is still a poor fit to this truck. From what I see locally, you can buy a Dodge 3.0 diesel, get the fuel mileage, and not have all of the headaches as you'll get with the Nissan. Otherwise, I'd give the Fords another look. The newest EcoBoost is a dandy engine. All of the previous ones, I wouldn't have one for free, but that's me. The new one comes with sequential injection for normal driving and direct injection when you need to zoom. It's hard to beat the current offerings. Don't base your opinion of Ford because the truck you currently own has one of the worst engines to sit in any truck. The 5.4 has always been a problem child and has never put the power out that it supposed to make. But, best of luck with whatever you end up with. Having vehicle issues can really drain the brain.
Just read a review from one of the car rags on the XD. They managed to use 16 gallons of DEF in 14,800 miles. That's horrendous and of course, the dealer says there's nothing wrong with it.
