Re: conditions for tailgate to fall off - well Nissan has come to the conclusion that the whole bed of my truck was misaaligned from day one and that over time it finally starting showing wear by the tailgate following off while locked. I have not hauled any item of substantial weight other than placing a shell on the top of the bed of the truck. Bad news - dealer would not take responsibilty in fixing - stated it was my fault. Good news the manufacturer Nissan is replacing the entire bed of the truck - it will be inspected prior to delivery to me by a Dealer Tech Specialist and they will be putting on a lock - so that the tailgate can never be stolen/ and I am receiving the Premier Gold extended service plan 100,000 mile/7 year warranty - which covers everything except a few wear and tear items. I personally would not leave my tailgate down w/a MC in the back if I was driving on dirt roads but on the pavement you should not have a problem.

I believe that the "tow package" also includes several electrical relays that must me installed in order for the trailer light wiring to function correctly.

ABLS is a simple system that merely applies the anti-lock brake to a spinning wheel. Nothing more. It's in the circuit all of the time under all conditions and you cannot switch it off. It's very unobtrusive and I like it. ABLS is not to be confused with VDC which is a sophisticated program that monitors vehicle speed, direction, steering wheel input and body lean to maintain driver control.

#1911 of 2122 2006 fontier paint chips
Jan 29, 2007 (8:55 pm)
My 2006 frontier has numerous rock chips on the leading lower portion of the rear bed and frnders. I only drive on paved roads and have less than 6000 km on the vehicle, yet the paint is worn down to bare metal.
Anyone else experiencing this problem?

It is a common problem. They just don't make paint like they used to, thanks to government intervention.

Sorry to hear of your paint issues on your frontier do you have mud guards and step rails? Do you have pictures?

You're right on Okie -- EPA regulations affected the use of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) in auto paint and the result has been a much lower quality of paint. Nearly all brands made in the US are suffering from this.
I bought the OEM splash guards and step rails in hope that it might preserve my paint a bit better.
