I hate to spoil your enthusiasm, but installing any aftermarket kit on your vehicle may void your warranty. I would wait with such installation until after the warranty has expired. One problem with brakes is that they are a safety system and if you were involved in a collision involving failure of the braking system (even if not related to the replaced components), Nissan would almost surely refuse to be held liable for such a failure.

I don't have that resonance issue but I did brought it up to her where she told me that there was a tsb on it and they did it on one car. right now, they will work on my brakes w/c after 8000 miles started to shimmy. I have 9200 miles on it and so far, that's the only major issue I have and some small rattles inside the door w/c they fix right away. you can also talk to the service manager who is very very accomodating. the thing is, I bought mine on Havana but there service is bellow average. try to get an oil change and took a week to get an appointment and 1 hr to wait while on Arapahoe, you could have it the next day and 40min or less to wait.

Hey Midblues: what is the source on your #2?? I've only found Stoptech which requires 19" wheels, or slotted rotors. TIA for the info.

Anyone know if the non-bose equipped vehicles have a std 1/2/2.5 DIN slot for the stereo?
All the pics I see on the web are the bose version.

I installed a complete replacement system in my 04 Armada. There is a 2 din hole back there- Metra makes a kit to fit it.
There's a pic of my head unit after install at http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/547845
#3342 of 3836 Armada fuel mileage
Dec 25, 2004 (12:06 am)
I bought my Armada '05 SE 4x4 about a month now and got about 2K miles (mostly freeway).
I'm estimating the mileage is around 13.5miles/gal at 70mph avg freeway speed and without towing. This's not even close to the 18 miles/gal rating from Nissan. Just curious what the best mileage/driving condition others Armada owner actually get?

You do realize that those figures are done at 55mph and no wind resistance right?
I own an Isuzu trooper and the minute I go over 60mph my milage drops like a rock. I thought it was messed up when I first bought it but then I was stuck in heavy but moving traffic at 55mph for an extended trip, pulled out 1mpg over the one on the sticker. So try doing a trip at 55mph and see if you get near the sticker. Don't forget these trucks have the aerodynamics of BRICK WALL

I'm still averaging about 16.7 mixed driving, primarily country under 60 mph driving. I've got 18k on mine now- almost at my one year anniversary with the Black Beauty (or beast, depends on my mood) =o)
