Nissan Titan

    I'm looking at a SE 4x4 KC with big tow and another identical but without big tow...I have read the post and appreciate all of the input...But, am still a bit confused on just how much of a difference it is concerning MPG..I am aware of the gear ratio difference and the basis behind it...But, my quotes are only $450 different and it would cost (ballpark) of $250 to get a hitch put on the truck without...So basically it comes down to MPG...does anyone have any real numbers from the Big Tow vs. Without-- Thanks in advance for any advice-

    Did you find that your ride quality was sacrificed with the daystar lift?? Did you need to get an alignment after? Thanks in advance

    I have a new 2005 Titan LE Crew Cab and am looking for a premium quality cap. I have fitted the Nissan accessory sliding cargo trays which are excellent.

    My wife and I are full time RVers and are presently located a considerable distance from major centers so would like to have a short list of suitable caps before travelling to look at them. The location of dealers is not a concern as our travelling makes it unlikely that we would see the selling dealer again.

    I have looked at a Leer XQ installed on a King Cab and the attachment system is bolts through inward extensions on the cap flange, front and rear, threaded into an aluminum fitting in the Utili-track. This Leer "J Bolt" method is not suitable as the flange extensions would restrict the forward travel of the upper cargo tray to about 8 or 9 inches from the front of the bed, which is not acceptable. I will accept 3 or 4 inched from the front, but not more.

    I see that A.R.E. Z series uses clamps that fit into the front and rear ends of the Utili-track, which would be acceptable. If there are other comparable quality caps with similar attachment system, or better yet, one which uses a clamp in the gap between the front end of the rail track and the front of the bed, I would appreciate the details.

    Any and all suggestions welcome!

    Just to answer my own question....the salesmen don't really know anything. I went back and all the window stickers suggest alternative fuel vehicle (E85). My three year old had popped open the gas filler door so I took a look, and sure enough every titan on the lot said unleaded OR E85 on the filler door. Thats here in the midwest. and I might add, those titans have been on the lot quite awhile.

    Sir, in reading the messages on the Titans you seem to be very knowledgable on them. I have a 2004 CC 4X4 LE and I want the Rancho RS5000 shocks. The problem is, I cannot find the front shocks anywhere. The rears are readily available online, but no fronts. The dealer advises they can only order OE (which is what I have) and not the Ranchos, which come on the off road packages. Have spent many hours on the net and called every tire and parts retailer in my area, no luck. Do you have any advise? Thanks

    I would like to add mine also if you don't mind, I have had the same problem, first brake problem was at three thousand miles, next was at ten thousand miles, I am currently at eighteen thousand I so far no problems.

    Also my differential failed twice allready, I've had two different 2005 rear axles....

    The owner's manual states that it inhibits auto shifting to 5-hi gear.
  • obyone - I'm looking at getting the K&N cool air intake, or all the hype about increase is marketing?

  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    That sir, is my opinion. Having installed the K&N FIPK in two trucks, I showed no gains in mpg. I had also installed the airaid intake in another previous vehicle with no gains in mpg. It seems to always come back to your driving habits as the greatest influence on your mpg.

    Did I mention this other doodad that you install in your intake tube which is suppose to modify the airflow for better mileage? Well that one didn't work either. Course the name slips by me as I try to forget some of my more obvious mistakes ;)

    I added an aftermarket air filter & intake tube along with a cat back custom exhaust system. Zero gain in mileage till I hooked onto my car trailer. Mileage went from low 12 MPG to high 13's , got low 14 mpg a couple of times with the trailer hooked up.

    Daily mileage never changed from the low 17's in my mixed city / freeway I drive during the week
  • 2004 CC SE 4WD with big tow is getting about 12-13 MPG mixed city andd hwy driving. What are others getting? Love the trukc but hate the mileage!
  • Hi Everyone -

    I finally found a station here in town that has the E85 fuel.

    Question is, may i use the E85 in my truck ('04 CC 2x4)

    I have almost 70,000 miles on the engine.

    I have had better performance with the lower grade fuel (88 to 89 octane)
    so i don't know what the E85 will do to the engine.

  • I ordered the bed divider for my '05 Titan from the dealer and installed it about two weeks ago. It is very handy and the large knobs make adjusting it quite easy. The only complaint that I have is that it rattles constantly as I drive. I have made sure that all of the assembly screws are tight as are the locking knobs in the track. My only solution has been to slip two wooden wedges between the truck bed and the divider. This works for a few days, then they slip out and the rattle begins again. has anyone else had this problem and if so, how did you fix it?
  • I have been looking at trucks and trying to decide which one if any to purchase, so for the owner's of the 4x4 titan's would you buy the same truck all over again or would you wait until the problems and quality issues were corrected???

    I test drove a few trucks but after reading the titan and ford post's from owner's many having the same issue's I'm just thinking it might be better to wait, at these prices these problems should be corrected before they hit the showrooms this is just my honest opinion

    I would ABSOLUTELY buy my truck all over again. Issues aside its an AWESOME truck!!!! Mine is a 2004 Titan LE CC 4x4 with big tow pkg and VDC. She was born 8/24/04. Yes, my truck has had LOTS of issues, but now that she is closing in on 20k miles she seems to be settling down. We use my Titan to pull a 24 foot travel trailer and various (including an 8000 lbs firewood trailer) trailers, she does GREAT!!!! I'd say go for it, just know that you may have some quirks to work out.
  • i'll 2nd that akangl,mine's an 05 4x4 kc,pretty basic but it's the best driving truck i've ever owned,don't yet know about the snow til this winter but it should be never know how long these veh.prices are gonna stay this way and nissan is now aware of the problems so i'm sure that every edition is gonna be more refined.everyone knows that if you buy the 1st of a new series it's gonna take a bit to get all the bugs worked out,just depends if you wanna wait.i think overall they did their homework and i'm satisfied with mine.

    LOL, you do have a point there. I've been behaving and haven't bought a new vehicle in over 10 months. No new vehicles in the works either.........I think there's talk of revoking my CCBA membership. ;)

    I had a question about all of the Leveling kits. The Daystar is the poly spacer and the TopGunz is a metal spacer like the Truxx. I have read in a couple of places that the Daystar has too be installed by compressing the strut and the Topgunz does not and might be better on the ride and handling. What is the overall opinion?
  • We have just purchased a used 1996 Nissan XE pickup truck which came without the owners manual. I am having difficulty finding one. Does anyone know of a source for old owners manuals?

  • I have a 1991 nissan pickup, I sometime can hear a strange noise after it is turned off coming from somewhere in the middle of the truck. Could this be the transmission or the rear end?

    Perhaps you ran over an animal and parked on top of it? Or maybe you forgot to turn off the radio? Did your passenger pass gas? Seriously, besides the fact you are on the wrong discussion group (The truck you have can't be a Titan) you didn't give much info. FYI, if the noise is after the engine is off and its parked, slide under the truck and look but be careful to not touch anything hot.

    I was about to order fog lights for my '05 SE Titan 4x2 with no Auto function on the headlights, when I noticed the description said they would fit the 04 SE, and the 05 SE 4x4... but no mention of the 05 SE 4x2. This of course got me wondering if they would fit my setup.
    Does anyone know if there is a reason for excluding my setup? I spoke with parts guys and one service guy from 3 different dealers, and all agreed there might be a reason it was omitted, but they couldn't tell me what the difference was or whether I could get by with it... One guy said "We can put in a toggle switch for ya"...
    Yeah, right...
    Any help would be appreciated, as I was told by the dealer that I could return them as long as I didn't open the box... Geez... Tough to tell if they work or not without installing them. Last I checked that meant taking them out of the box...

  • obyoneobyone Posts: 8,054
    The 05 SE 4x2 does not have the factory wiring installed for the fog lights. All the other models have the wiring installed making it plug and play.
  • time5time5 Posts: 2
    Thanks for the the reply obyone. I checked underneath, and based on other pictures I've seen in instructions etc., the wiring harness is there...
  • Hi everyone. I read an article on the inside line here that there is an after-market package called the "No Fear Extreme Package" that can be put on the Titan. The artickle mentions it includes, a lift, etc, but it doesn't say who sells it or anything. I checked all over online and can't find anything related to it and I've checked with a couple dealerships in my area and they don't seem to know what I"m talking about. My Titan already has the procomp 6" lift on it with the banks monster exhaust. Adding the No Fear emblems and new gauge cluster would finish it off nicely. Just wanted to see if any of you might know where I can get the No Fear Extrement Package. Thanks.
  • I'm getting about 11-12 mpg, but mine has the procomp lift and 35 inch tires. What really helped out my milage was the banks monster exhaust. It makes the truck breathe so much better. It decreased back pressure by 92%. I bet I would get a little better milage if I didn't step on it as much as I do. The exhaust sounds like no other though!!! ;)
  • I wanted to let people know that I am extremely happy with my 05 Titan. I have had a F-150 and a Silverado prior to this Titan, so I have experienced the 'American' trucks. I now have 6K miles on my Titan and can't be more pleased with the solidness of the truck. Every creature comfort was well-thought out. The engineering that went into this truck was supurb.

    If your Ford is rusting out on you, or your Chevy transmission is giving you problems, go take a look at the Titan. You won't be dissapointed. :)
