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

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?

#55 of 71 Customising my 98 Frontier
Dec 20, 2005 (8:15 pm)
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,

The DUB-AIR (www.dub-air.com) is the highest flowing system and looks the best! IMHO
#58 of 71 2004 Nissan Titan stock rev.-limiter
Jan 27, 2006 (10:55 pm)
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...
#60 of 71 Any experience with wood dash upgrades?
Mar 04, 2006 (9:46 am)
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?
#61 of 71 Titan exhuast and intake
Jun 30, 2006 (8:26 pm)
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?
