Hi everyone. I was looking into buying a new truck but decided to keep my Titan instead. It only has 103k miles on it so I think that it still has a long life ahead of it. I have been very lucky with it, the only issue I have had is the warped rotors which I fixed a couple of years ago with the Frozen rotor upgrade and the paint fading . Rear axle has not given me any issues, maybe it was the True Trac that I had installed shortly after buying it brand new and the radiator has held up so far. Okay, so here is the list of things to come in no particular order.
JBA long tube headers
3.36 gear swap
Spyder/Anzo headlights, Spec-D/Volant tail lights, Spyder fog lights and Spyder 3rd brake light.
Hellwig helper spring
Rough Country traction bars
Audio upgrade (still shopping around)
Wheel spacers (still shopping around)
4-6" lift (maybe)
35" tires if I add the lift
There is a couple of other things that I'm forgetting right now. I will update the post as time goes. I am open to any suggestions and advice on any experience you all have had. Please let me know if you have had any issues with any of the products or know where I can get some great deals. Thanks for reading.

I'm with you on the headers, bpipes, uprev but then I'm going straight to lift and 35s. Cracked headers are the only reason I'm not doing loft and tires first. The titan is replacing my 98 rodeo which has been all through moab and Colorado. Hoping the titan can take its place.

For wheel spacers, tires, and (I assume) you'll want some wheels too check out Custom Wheel Offsets they have an awesome youtube page giving tons of info on this kind of stuff, and their website is super helpful too!
Thanks for the support. Just got back to the states yesterday, now I'm waiting for things to start coming in the mail. Driving the truck home I notice that it has what sounds like an exhaust leak somewhere up front, haven't had the chance to look. Wonder if it's a manifold gasket leaking. Will check in the next few days once I get a chance.

The nissan oem gaskets are good and I haven't heard of them leaking...they could, but if anything it will be a cracked manifold...common issue

I just made the same decision as you on my 07' titan, I just couldn't let the old girl go.
Im currently upgrading a whole mess of things on her I'd love to here how some of these go especially the tow upgrades your doing.
I just switched my head and tail lights to the halo spyders, and and spec-d in the back. Sounds like your doing the same they look great and are a super fast install.Be advised you will need to install blinker bulbs they do NOT come with the headlights all other bulbs were included. You do have the remove your front grill to install these. If your installing a new rad to id do this at the same time as it will save you some double work.
I replaced my rad twice, the second time i switched it to and all metal radiator instead of the stock metal with plastic top and bottoms. This was years ago and i haven't have a problem since,the radiator is definitely a worth while upgrade.
If your getting it repainted make sure the guys are extra careful with your door seals. The ones that run near the roof are not really able to be reused and they are really expensive seals (300+ from a dealer).
Im currently adding a level kit and new shocks and struts but i have a 2wd so this will be different. But id like to hear what you end up doing and if you add those wheel spacers/adapters and what tire size your gunna go with.
Cheers and have fun fixing up your ride.
Just to put in my 2 cents. I just replaced all my exhaust with JBA long tube headers, Cajun Bpipes, and JBA catback and it sounds great. However, like yourself, I have a 4x4 and it's not as easy to do the headers. Most people say to loosen the motor mounts and jack up the engine, except that on 4wd models the front diff is in the way and you can't get to the motor mount bolts. So I ended up taking out the exhaust manifold studs to get the new headers in. Just a heads up. Also uprev is great. I was impressed with how quickly they got my maps made and sent to me. But I'm super happy with everything. Good luck with the project. Keep us posted.
