Don't know about the rest of you, but I don't like the look of the crew cab roof rack. Can it be removed without leaving bolt holes in the roof? I don't mind putting black plastic plates over the holes.

    I just bought a '98 Frontier. I want to install power windows and doorlocks with remote keyless entry.

    Has anyone done it already? I will appreciate your comments and advice.

    Just out of curiosity, is it possible to add on a sunroof aftermarket, and for how much?

    I want to buy a Titan SE, but they don't offer a sunroof with that model:(
  • Anybody know if the Pace Edwards Roll-Top Tonneau
    bed cover is available for the Titan KC?

    I just installed a Pace Edwards Jack Rabbit for my Titan King Cab. It was relatively easy to install, looks and fits great! Look here for probably the best price online (They'll also match anyone's price -$20 if you find it anywhere cheeper):

    I had too much rain and too much absorbed heat getting into bed of an 02 Tundra to go for another Jack Rabbit on my KC. Figuring I'll trailer anything bulky, I went for the color matched solid ARE LSII. (You can install bed rails on it and tote stuff on it if needed) Either way, as you need to specify it with ARE, it may be important with Jackrabbit if you have the bed track lock system or not.
  • If you want a soft tonneau look at the one from Extang. You can find them on the web at and they do ship direct. Go for the Saber model as it has no snaps. Mine so far works great. Costs about $300.
    There are other ones on the market and the hard ones run about $1200 to $1500. They do have an advantaage as they offer better air flow, but you can not stand it straight up nor put something in the bed that needs to stand up such as the new trees your better half wants or new funiture.
    If you have the Utilitrack your options seem limited as to what is available.
    The factory is or was going to provide a cover but as of yet they do not or have not released it.
  • Advance Covers has a nice hard-panel fold-up bed cover to fit trucks with the utilitrak rails. They said it requires the tracks. I ordered one from a local installer two days ago.

  • I just recently purchased a 02 4WD XE which has the standard Dark Gray/Black plastic wheel mouldings and front bumper. Really like the body color mouldings on the SC models better. Has anybody ever heard of or tried to have these moulding pieces painted the same as the body color? Didn't know it the plastic was the same material on the XE as on the SC and if this could be painted.
  • I just looked at the advance cover on-line. It looks pretty good. How do you like yours and was it easy to install and can you remove it completely pretty easily?

    I just bought the 2004 Desert Runner with basic pkg only.
    Now I need to add cruise control and want to hear your experiences with Aftermarket CC.
    The unit that I have read about is the SCS electronic model, but just the dealers blurbs, don't know how good these units are.
    Anyway I'd like to hear your recomendations for electronic models.

    Does your Titan has build in bed rail? I looked everywhere on the net. All of them require to remove the bed rail which came with Utility Bed Package.
  • hogboyhogboy Posts: 84
    Truxedo makes a cover that will fit with the utility bed package.
    If you have the sliding bed extender you will have to make a
    small modification to the end bracket to install a self tapping screw or simply keep a 9/16ths wrench in the cab to flip the bed extender around. The cover is very high quality and relatively easy to install.

    Sorry I'm so long getting back. I got the cover through a dealer. It took him an hour to install - didn't look too difficult, but I'm not sure you can buy direct from Advance. Check them out.

    I like the cover because I can fold it up and store it easily, even in the truck bed if I want. (it has two screws to loosen) Both the front and rear panels lock using flanges installed in the utilitrak rails. The unit is quite strong and secure.

    I looked at the ARE solid cover but I deemed it a little too bulky to handle by myself if I wanted to remove it.

  • I have an '04 Frontier XE-V6 (non-supercharged)CC LB and I'm wondering if anybody has had experience with the NISMO cold air intake system. It's supposed to add 10hp's to the rear wheels. I've talked to a Nissan dealer in Denver and they said that such modifications per se do not void the warranty but Nissan may not cover any warranty repairs if there is a problem related to using the intake. I'd appreciate a feedback, thanks.
  • I have 03 Frontier SE CC that came with the 6-disc CD changer. I would like to add the RF, MP3, Sony 10-disc chager to play MP3 songs. It seems like the best place to install this aftermarket CD changer is under the passenger front seat. I need to get access to the back of my existing audio system to hookup with the new one, but I don't know how to properly remove the cover of my conter console without damage it. ANYONE KNOW HOW TO PROPERLY REMOVE IT, PLEASE HELP!

    Thanks alot.
  • I have totally distroyed my tailgate!!! After an afternoon of riding 4-wheelers, I had my tailgate down and was backing up and didn't see the huge pine tree that was behind me. To make a long story short, my tailgate is completely ruined. Does anyone know of a place that has after market Titan tailgates or even an airgate? I have looked everywhere....please help!

    dude thats a said story but it hard not too lugh at sorry dude/ hope find one ,trying a wide world search.
    good luck...
  • all depends, look and see if part is listed as s-tune, s-tune is nissan code for street legal, and can not void warranty as long as installed correctly, r-tune is off road use, and does not imply a warranty, and will not be covered, if damage occurs because of r-tune part, it will not be covered!

    Does anyone know where or how I can get info on putting my 98 Frontier engine and tranny, (5 speed manual) in an 89 Nissan pickup? I wrecked the front end of my 98 and have an 89 with blown engine and bad tranny.

    Is there a after market overhead rack gear for Titan? How much is the original Titan overhad rack gear including installation? can I install it myself?
  • Anyone know where to find one for a 2004 Frontier Crew Cab 2WD? We're looking for a 3" suspension lift kit. Everything we find is for a 4WD or for older model Nissans. Got any good leads, hit me up. Thanks.

    We just got an XM package installed at the dealer and got the antenna that looks like a black square, that curves up - standard I guess. It was installed on the front windshield, passenger corner. From the inside it's not that bad, but my husband doesn't like the way it appears when looking at the truck from the outside. Are there any other options as far as placement, or even options for a different antenna so that we could have it placed somewhere less conspicuous? (we're new to XM) The dealer said he'd look into it but as of now there is no other way for the Titan. Just wondering if anybody else has had success in modifying this situation.

  • jdkx2jdkx2 Posts: 10
    Mine is installed on the inside of the windshield and behind the mirror. There is a "mesh" on the winshield that makes it pretty much invisible from the outside.

    I have a 2004 4X4 Crew cab and want to install an in dash Nav system. Does anyone know of an aftermarket system that is available or is their a different solution such as a portable unit, etc.
  • 2bar2bar Posts: 3
    Has anyone put a camper cap on a Titan? I've yet to see one. I hope to put one on by fall for a trip I'll be making.

    I have the utility bed track. It seems that someone should be making camper cap clamps that would fit into that track.

    I had a white 2000 XE and had the front bumper and fender flares painted to match the truck. I had the truck for 5 years and the bumper got a few chips, but no more than the
    factory paint on the hood.

    I am not sure if it is the same material as your truck, but it looked great and worked well on my 2000.

    I just purchased a 2005 Frontier LE KC and had the outside mirrors, the front bumper,
    and the mud guards all painted white to match the truck. I have not had it long enough
    to tell if the paint will hold up as well as it did on my 2000, but it looks great.

    If you are unable to put the frontier motor into your Nissan, I was wondering if you would be willing to sell you nissan Pickup.

    Does anybody have any suggestions on an aftermarket leveling kit? I'm looking just to raise the front anywhere from 1-2 inches...I hear rumours of the poly kits causing excessive strut wear and this true? Any reccomendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance
