Nissan Frontier 2005+

    I am almost at 13,000 miles. I had the engine TSB and no other real problems. I have had great service with my truck. I have been to three different Nissan locations for servicing and all have been great. Never had a real problem though. I would doubt they replace the truck, I am sure they will just try to find the problem. I would see if they will give you and extended warranty, just a thought. Good luck.

    Can you give me some specifics on the dealership and locale? I have been doing searches for a 4x2 LE CC in Storm Gray with a sunroof and I found 1 in Concord N.C. I'm going to be down in that area in 2 weeks and I just might make a trip to the dealership you're talking about if its near where I'll be.

    I'm tempted to change over to buying a Dodge Ram quad which I can get for about the same $24,000 as the Fronty.

    I'm not sure of the specific rules of the forum but the location for this dealership is in Apex, NC. Hopefully that will give you enough info to find what you're looking for.

    Gerald. Maybe it's just a visual thing! I am just not used to seeing oil pressure changes like that. thanks for the info. Last note: I still think that the nissan frontier is the best of the best, and would buy it again. 2005 frontier rules!!!!!!!

    Thanks! That was all I needed to know.

    I contacted the dealership and it was as I had expected...the matching $1000 was coming off the amount they would have discounted anyways when dealing at invoice pricing. A good thing came out of this though. The N.C. dealership did offer me a truck at $300.00 under invoice and I got my local dealer to match it so I'm buying a LE CC with the Rockford Fosgate package and a sunroof that stickers for $26,220 for $23,129 after rebate. I'm very happy with this deal. Thanks to everyone for all your info!

    Is this true? Has anyone else heard of this?
  • centralcalcentralcal Posts: 215
    Do a google search for CR Laurence windows. If you contact the company directly, they are making one, some suppliers don't know this yet. AZTrucks has them on their webpage. They look really nice. Spoke with some local installers in Central California, total price is about $650 installed.

    Has anyone had any experience with a hard bed cover? Good or Bad I ordered a factory one and they are on backorder and am looking at aftermarket ones. Is the factory one better than what I can get on my own? Also thinking about a retractable cover.

    Has anyone looked into/actually installed the RollBak cover? It is a cover made of many aluminum slats that appears to work like a window shade. If so, could you give me some input on:

    1. Is it good quality?
    2. How much of the bed does it take up when it is fully open (i.e., how much dead space will I have in the bed even when it is totally open)?
    3. How much drilling is required (I saw some installation instructions that indicated the need to drill a hole through the bed for a drain hose and possibly to drill holes into the side rails)?
    4. Is it water tight?
    5. How securely can it be locked?
    6. Is it easy to use?
    7. How does it look?

    Thanks a lot.

    I just noticed a few additional products about which I have the same questions. Can anyone tell me about the following (also a window shade design)?

    Pace-Edwards Bedlocker (motorized!)
    Pace-Edwards Jackrabbit
    Pace-Edwards Roll Top Cover

    Any other "window shade" designs out there that are worth considering? I like the idea that they are lockable, that you can't cut them with a knife to get at what is in the bed, and that they easily roll up out of the way when you need to use the whole bed (would be nice if they are waterproof too). Thanks again.

    I am following up on my initial post. I spoke with the dealer today and they tell me that the "factory" hard cover is not currently availaable. They are trying to find me a replacement. I can only find 2, A.R.E and Leer. Has anyone had any luck with either of these? How about Foldacover?
  • I saw an ad in the latest issue of ATV magazine for the new Frontier and noticed a tiny link to a site that gives out free NISMO Frontier posters.

    Check it out - .

    I just received my Kcover (I think it is a versa cover) which is a folding cover. After much research, it sounded like the best one (around $600 delivered). It is supposed to sit above the utility rack and you don't have to remove any portion (you do with foldacover). It is removable and lockable. Probably won't put it on till this weekend.

    Pace Edwards Jack Rabbit and tailgate lock...the demo unit in the store seemed impressive, and that is what I wish to install on my truck...I don't have a Frontier, but the concept is the same...the aluminum slats appear strong, and with an electric tailgate lock tied into your remote key fob, your truck bed is now like a trunk...considering that a trunk can be popped with the simple lock, your truck bed will probably be stronger and more secure than an average trunk...

    Has anyone been able to find an overhead rack system that will work on the 2005 Frontier Crew Cab with utili-track and without the factory rack? It looks like I have to pull out the side utilitracks for racks that clamp to the bed rail and there doesn't seem to be a system that will fit the roof top of the cab.
  • ukbballfanukbballfan Posts: 13
    I too am interesyed in the Rollbak cover. Sounds like a neat concept. The distributer I talked with said that the canister was small enough to work with the utili-trac system in the Fronty. Wht kind of price have you found on the Rollbak? I was quoted $700.00 plus $75.00 for shipping. It weighs 70 lbs.

    I just had a Foldacover bed cover installed on my '05 LE KC and they did not have to
    remove any of the utili-trac system. Everything is complete and still usable.

  • centralcalcentralcal Posts: 215
    interesting, when I spoke with the company I was going to order from, they said the first 1/3 would have to be removed (the part closest to the cab). How do you like it?
  • 2005lekc2005lekc Posts: 145

    I like it fairly well. It is a little hard for me to fold it all of the way up, but I am 5' 7 1/2"
    tall, weigh 130 pounds, and I am 67 years old. Probably I could have done this okay when I was a little younger.

    It is not waterproof, but it hasn't let very much water through so far. It looks great on
    the truck and I really enjoy being able to let my utili-trac hardware stay in place without
    having to worry about it being stolen. I am going to order the sliding partition soon, now
    that I can lock it up.

    When I bought mine the dealer said that the front section of the Titan had to be re-
    moved, but in calling Fold-a-cover he was told that on the Frontier it would fit without
    interfering with the utili-trac system. It did not interfere at all.
