    Does anyone know if they make an aftermarket exhaust system for my 1999 Nissan Fronier 2.4L inline 4Cyl

    Gibson offers a cat-back system.I just put one on my 2000 Frontier 2.4 Auto.Easy install,nice 3.5 inch tip.Its not to loud,i'm liking it more every day.You will need a muffler gasket for where it bolts to the cat.I also have a Header coming that i got the Metallic Crematic Coating on it.I think the header is made by Passetter.I think Gibson is still offering free shipping on there exhaust.

    I just sold my 2000 XE KC, but I had a Flowmaster one in two out muffler installed on it
    when I first got it. It had a wonderfully deep sound, but turned out to be a little louder than what I wanted for driving on the highway.

    I am currently trying to decide what, if any catback exhaust to put on my '05 LE KC.
    I want something deep, but not much louder than stock. I like the stock exhaust note,
    just wish it was a little louder and a lot deeper.

    I believe that Stillen makes an aftermarket leveling kit for the 05 frontier. I have a 4wd and have had the same problem finding a kit. The kit is aluminum spring spacers. Hopefully I gave you the right manufacturer, if not the nissan parts department in Deland florida can look it up for you. (386) 734-3003 is their number. The only reason i didn't buy it is because it's a bit pricey for two pieces of metal. I think it was $200. hope i could help

    If you check Nissan Titan club talk, prerunner greg has been making leveling kits for the Titan, and now has designed one for the Frontier. $250 for the Front leveling kit and rear block. Works great, looks great.
  • i have a 05 crew cab 4x4 titan with cat bac exaust and cold air induction that was installed from the dealer ship as a off road package. i am wanting to ad a chip for more power and to do away with the shut off point (118 mph). where and how much. has the super charger came out for the titan.

    I searched the archives and didn't find one single post on this....just purchased a Titan and the dealer provided me with a sheet about this Toughguard product that is supposed to protect the paint for a guaranteed five years without ever waxing. I'm generally pretty skeptical about stuff like this. Apparently, the same manufacturer has a similar product for the leather and vinyl and also for fabric.

    Anyone ever used this stuff? Worth the $500 price?
  • I've got an aftermarket IMCO 2.5" exhaust, but i'm looking for headers. Any suggestions? In addition, i'm searching for a leveling kit for the front. I'm aware that Stillen makes a leveling kit for the 2005, but I can't find one for the 2004. Any ideas???? :confuse:
  • There is no leveling kit for the '04 because they have a torsion bar front end, the '05 has a coilover front end. The only way to level the front with the torsion bars is to crank them up, but that's not a good idea. It ruins your alignment and the ride of the truck. I used to have a '98 frontier and bought an '05. The '05 is awesome.
  • I own a 1997 Nissan pickup with the 2.4l engine. With the price of gasoline skyrocketing I was interested in doing whatever I can to increase mpg. Is there anyone who has knowledge of whether the 5th gear in these pickups can be made longer. I figure the lower the rpm's run to stay at 70 mph the better the fuel mileage would be from this pickup. The 200 sx from the same year has a 2.4l engine and is rated at 37 mpg where as my pickup is only rated at 25 mpg. I do understand that aerodynamics play a role in this also, and I am working on that part, but what about changing the transmission. Any information would be appreciated.

    I think the biggest problem is not the aerodynamics, but sheer weight. My 1998 Frontier, with the same 2.4 engine, only gets 26 mpg, and it's because it weighs over 4100 lbs. The 200SX probably comes in under 3100.

    does anyone know how I can lower the driver's seat in my 05 Frontier and get some more leg room? Im a tall long legged guy and i LOVE my truck, but woud love it even more with a bit more room. the seat mounting brackets are nowhere near standard and Nissan doesnt make any extended seat rails that I've been able to find. thanks in advance, Fred
  • Anybody know where I can get one of these for a 2002 Frontier 2.4L 4 cyl? I see them everywhere for V6's but nothing for a 4 banger. Also, how loud or throaty or annoying are those Gibson cat back exhaust mods? Thanks!
  • Just bought a New Titan LE KC. Believe it or not it did not come with floor mats. Any recommendations. I have seen the factory rubber and carpeted as well as the x-treme and weatehrtech. Anyone have any experience with any.

    Thx Dave
  • I hear that Titans do not need any alignment at all? Can this be true?

    Also, does all the Titan owners have gas cap covers that can be easily be accessed to by using your finger? im used to using a level from the inside of my car to open the gas tank for refueling. This to me is safety and to protect from gas thefts. Any recommendations as to what i should get to protect my gas tank/cap on my 06 Titan? Thanks

    High :)
  • to answer my own question, yes alignment is possible and yes there's a locking gas cap w/ a key. The only problem with the key gas cap is that it may trigger the engine light to go on and therefore cause the egr valve to malfunction.

    you can easily replace the "factory" XM antenna with an aftermarket Micro XM antenna that mounts magnetically (see link below). I installed the factory setup myself and decided I didnt like the antenna on the windshield either. I bought a micro XM antenna that I mounted at the back centr of the cab roof above the third tail light. Its hardly noticeable and I was able to run the wiring under the floor moulding and out the back of the drivers side back door and it laid right in the window channel around the back sliding glass and around the third light, so you hardly see any exposed wire at all. The folks at XM will tell you "we dont know if it will work", but thats BS. Mine works perfectly and looks soooo much better that that stupid windshield thing. what the hell was Nissan thinking?

  • Hey folks I am in need of some information. Aiming to improve my handling and fuel efficiency.

    I have a 98 frontier extended cab 2.4, 4 banger, stick shift and want to lower it about 2 inches on all 4 corners (is that a good idea). I am going for better handling. Heard about lowering spindles, lowered torsion bars (is that the same as cranking down the torsion bars and wont that affect my handling and tire wear?) and drop coil springs. I am now really confused as to which maintains the best ride and wont wear out my tires or parts. The rears I am just going to use lowering blocks.

    A cat back exhaust, headers later. Who's has the better product? Looking at performance, low mellow sound as opposed to raw and loud and durability.

    Throttle body spacer. I have heard that they work well to increase torque and power, anyone tried it?

    The body stuff I will leave until later.

    Which reputable company can I buy this stuff from?

    Thanks a bunch,
    Drew
  • I have a 04 LE 4x4 crew and my truck does not shut off.I have been 130 mph and still going.I am second owner and did not know they had a shut off point.I guess the first owner did some work on the truck.Now i have to find out what was done this is good to know. THANKS

    The DUB-AIR (www.dub-air.com) is the highest flowing system and looks the best! IMHO
  • I have a Nissan Titan and the rev-limiter is set at 112-mph. Stock, this South Dakota Nissan will limit right there, this is from experience. Who makes a good chip? This truck uses a K&N cold air system, a Gale Banks Monster Exhaust and Mobil 1 5w-30 engine oil.
  • I have seen where some folks don't like the plastic around the tailgate handle, and don't even like the general look...
    I just want to say that having plastic around the handle protects the paint when your wearing gloves, and the look is unique and is Nismo!
    I have a picture of my Titan's dash at the speed of 107-mph and at 3,500-rpm, perhaps the rev.-limter is 118-mph, my shut off at 114-mph. Picture is here:">
    I am waiting for the chip, to make "Viper Boy" strike.
    Tell me if you got the connection please...

    I recently purchased an 06 Frontier LE with the leather package. It's a nice interior, but it still feels a tad plasticy given the dash and center console configuration.

    These folks sell an aftermarket upgrade which is advertised to dress it up a little... I'm skeptical about gluing wood inlay in place, but I imagine that it could be done.

    Does anybody have any experience with this?

  • I just got a flowmaster dual exhuast and i love it. Is it a good idea to get the nismo cold air intake. by adding those 2 perfomace parts would it shorten my engine life because its not factory?

    I've seen numerous ads on motor alley.com advertising se king and club cab frontier for 5000-5500 off MSRP (500 of this may be college grad rebate) (about 1500 -2000 under invoice.) Any one get anything like this on their purchase?

    Any significant mileage difference between club 2wd and 4wd models?

    Did anyone order the soft tonneau cover from nissan with their crew? It seem to have some neat quick access zippers in both the drivers front and passenger rear of the bed that seem to be unique. None of the dealers here have any trucks with it.

    Thanx

    ...continued

    I've also seen trucks with a 2 piece hinged- in- the- middle vinyl hard tonneau cover for short bed trucks that has locks on both ends (flips up on cab end and tailgate end) and seems a lot lighter than the stock nissan one. Easily removable too but I haven't been able to determine the brand.

    Thanx

    I got $1500 off my truck, I asked about the student discount and they said it was only for 2006s, which mine wasnt (its an 05). As for the tonneau, I went with the extang trifold soft cover, and love it. I would have gone factory but i saw a bad review not too long ago about the nissan soft cover. Hope this helps!
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    From my previous post... I meant 3000-4000 under invoice

    I have a 2005 Titan 4X4 SE/CC/OR. I do have the soft tonneau
    cover for mine. It is an Extang Tuff Tonneau III. $84.00
    out the door with free shipping.Mine snaps into place very
    easily as well as lifting off and rolling. It is definitely worth it.
    Mileage isn't great but I'm getting 15 city/20 hwy. This is with BFG tires.I also use an Eco Fuel systems Eco-3 to help with mpg and vapor emissions.
    Currently also have Stillen Longtube headers/Borla exhaust
    and am waiting for the soon to be released Stillen Chip. :)
