    Again same story :), how about your 666 repairs?
    Or better yet .. inaudible
  • I didn't get my vehicle repaired 666 times. This discussion is getting old. Move on.

    Nor has my Titan. This is the best truck I have ever owned hands down. Hey paisan, how is the ride in the 'mada? Is it possible to put the rear IRS into a Titan? Hmmmmm......
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Ride and handling on the Armada is great. It rides like a caddy, handles like a car.

    Really feels like a big Outback. I am not sure what would need to be done to get the IRS into the Titan, I bet it could be done, although the frame in the rear section may be different.

    The auto-load leveling suspension is great. I'll grab some pics next weekend with the 34ft Cigarette Boat triple axle trailer on it when I pick it up. Hoping that the 9100lb towing capacity is enough for it. :)

    Upgrade the tires, the Contis sucked in the snow on my truck. Once I upgraded to Bridgestone Dueller AT Revos it's like night and day. In the snow they've totally been great, was stuck in ice-encrusted snow banks here in NYC yesterday and just put it in 4-lo and pulled out. Amazing stuff.

    Mike,

    I read many technical articles, most of them on "tirerack" about different tires and my personal conclusion was there is no big difference between different tires, of course we are not talking about formula-1 or anything in that category. Even comparing normal all season snow/mud tire to pure snow tires, the difference is not much.

    I don't doubt your experience with Revos, but could it be you impression is partly because these are new, compared the ones you replaced, which were obviusly old. My point is, let say you had old Duler and replaced them with Conti's, would you notice a good improvement?
    The reason I am asking this questions, is because
    my personal experience with Conti's are very good, except I cannot compare with anything else yet. On the offroading trip up in mountains in CA, lots of snow and mud, I never had any problem. Recently in Texas on a loose gravel, again no problems.

    I've owned a lot of tires over the years and there are major differences. I am also comparing them to my truck when I had new Contis on. The Conties were fine in rain, dry on-road but were horrible offroad and in snow.

    I've used a lot of AT tires on my SUVs over the years and this isn't a placebo effect for sure.

    Try the BFG TA/KO tires. I have them and they seem to be rock solid. I think the new compound is 10-ply. They used
    to be 8-ply. They work good in everything but snow and ice........ :)
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Yeah TA/KOs are great, my buddy runs them. I couldn't go larger than stock so I stuck with the Bridgestones.

    Anybody know when the 2008s will be available?

    And no, I don't want to read about brake problems on a 2004 truck (four model years later).
  • paisanpaisan Posts: 21,181
    Haven't heard of a release date yet, looking forward to it myself. Although I'm really looking forward to the 2010 model.

    -mike
  • I agree. The 2008s aren't much change from the previous years models, just a few interior changes, even Edmunds criticized it for not being competitive enough in terms of different engine options and styling upgrades.

    Think38 - Those people with previous years brake and paint problems, just need to accept and live with it; since they will all be finally solved in the 2008 models. Bottomline, they know the risks invloved when purchasing a Nissan. So if problems occur, they should live with it.

    The 2008 Nissan titan is more than changing enough to compare with its competitors. Take any of the toyota line and put it next to the new Nissan Titan trim level (Pro -4x) and then talk about how it doesn't compare. Titan or tundra????? TITAN ANY DAY!

    I know this is off topic, but I cannot resist. Every single time I drive my Frontier 4x4 Nismo I can't help but smile. Titan's little brother is nothing less than a hoot for my wife and I to drive, wherever it may be. In my mind, there is no competition. There is no "perfect" vehicle, yet this is the closest to it that I have ever known.
    Keep it up Nissan! And thanks Titan.
    Now I'll head on back to the Frontier board.

    The frontier 4x4 is definitly a good vehicle; Especially being the NISMO. Your right about there not being a perfect vehicle, everyone has there own personal preference. I used to think that the titans might have been over priced, but once i took a minute to read up a little bit on the specs i started to realize that its priced right. And you get the Nissan name which means that it will last you more than a long time. Would you say that you might would look into gettin into a Titan?
  • driver56driver56 Posts: 408
    The Titan is too much truck for my needs. If I was in need of a heavy duty hauler, perhaps pulling more than 3 tons, I'd certainly consider the Titan. My Frontier suits me perfectly, just the right fit and size. And my garage is only 10'x 18'. Being a titch over 17' my Nismo fits nicely.
    We have 4 Nissans in our family, an Access, a Pathfinder, and 2 Frontiers, all in great shape and good running order.
    They have all been very reliable, costing us very little to maintain. I believe that is the key though,to getting good long term duty out of any vehicle, proper maintanence.
    Enjoy your Titan!
  • Nissan is great and do last a long time, my Titan last 24000 miles and 30 months before being deemed unrepairable. It almost made it out of the warranty period. GO NISSAN! :lemon:
