Does it include a drop-down ladder for my vertically challenged wife?

My wife just got a '10 Xterra.  Since she's "vertically challenged" as well, I don't think she'd let me jack it up like that.  And she hasn't let test out the four wheel drive yet.

I hope to have an FJ Cruiser by the end of the year, and then get one of these for it: http://www.autohome.it/file_gb/magg_extreme_forest.html

Hopefully, they have improved the Xterra since '03.  I drove a '03 Xterra rental from OKC to Las Vegas and it was horribly underpowered and very hard to maintain a straight line in cross winds along the interstate.  I think the motor back then was a gutless 3.3L V6.

I drove an 03 xterra a couple of months ago on Glenn Springs and Juniper Canyon and it handled very well.  It is a bit top heavy, but I like what you get for the price in handling ability, comfort and safety.

The new Frontiers and Xterras have a 261hp 4.0 V6, a great improvement over the 3.3l 170hp V6 in the pre-2005 models. 
WATER, It does a body good.

Have you used one of the RTT's before?  definitely for the thin and flexible crowd.

Not yet, but I hope to see one in person before making the final commitment for one.  But, I am working on the thin and flexible part, haha.
