#1301 of 1475 Cap/Topper/Shell for Titan LE Crew Cab w/Sliding Cargo Trays???
Jul 14, 2005 (11:33 am)
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 someother...so all the hype about increase is marketing?

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
#1308 of 1475 After market air filters
Aug 01, 2005 (9:10 pm)
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!
#1310 of 1475 E85 - Can I use this stuff?
Aug 11, 2005 (6:21 am)
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.
