I haven't been able to get a straight answer from the dealerships yet. So, does anyone know if you can get the Frontier's side airbag package with the traction package. I was able to find one 2005 CC left in my area but it was damaged on the lot and had to be repainted. The dealer didn't elaborate and I didn't ask how. When I tried building a 2006 on the Nissan web site it would not let me select both packages. The dealer has been vague and not answered the question directly. They just keep implying I can get what I want.n I'd like to know for sure before I go in.

#1430 of 2122 hard cover for truckbed
Oct 18, 2005 (4:26 pm)
Nissan sells the hard cover for 950, and I just saw one on the street - looks good. I want to get a hard top, but can't find one on a lot to inspect. So I don't understand how it works - where is it hinged and how does it open? Looks to be 2 pieces, with a handhold or anchor point on each half. Does it fold up against the back of the cab, accordian style?

Oh well. I need the 4x4 to get up my driveway when it snows in the winter. So I guess it's either 4x4 and side airbags or 4x4 and traction. I think safety wise the traction package would be better as it would help prevent accidents. The air bags will obviously help if involved in an accident but hopefully I would need them less than the traction control.
txsfireman, could you point me to where you found that information. Thanks for the help.

With the O5 Frontier, you had to get the sunroof package to get the side airbags. (I didn't care about the sunroof but didn't have a choice in it. Does provide more light in the cab and my wife likes it.) To get the traction package, I had to get the NISMO model with the heavier duty shocks. I test drove both the NISMO and the regular model and did not find the firmer shocks that much rougher. But, I've been driving 4Runners or a Mustang GT, so I'm used to a tough suspension system. (I think the Mustang is still a rougher ride than the NISMO)
I did have trouble finding what I was looking for. Nissan apparently did not produce that many with the sunroof package which includes the side airbags. I was lucky that I found a dealer in the DC metro area that was willing to hunt for one and found it being built and scheduled for shipment to a dealer in NJ. He then worked out a trade. Whole process took about six weeks until I was able to pickup the truck.
Remember that with the traction package, the primary useful element in snow will be the limited slip differential and of course, 4 wheel drive. Need to be very careful with the locking differential as it will disengage the anti-lock brakes, needed in snow and ice. I've never needed it and I spent a lot of time off road in the national forest. I do not find the hill descent very useful. Tried it a couple times, but just don't need it that often.
Overall, the truck is great. Please see my other posts for details.

Just got my fobs and gave them a try. It worked like a charm. I managed to program up all three that I have, one with the fcc id of cwtwb1u415, and two from e bay with ID KBRASTU15.
Thanks to all that passed on advice on this subject.
