  1. Fifth Wheel Towing

    Titan Towing & Hauling
    So then, why do diesels have greater capacities, even when listed on manufacturer specs? All the top pulling rigs on ford, chevy, dodge, even nissan; have diesel as having the greatest pull/haul capacities. As I said, look around you when driving. This might come in handy. Since people might...
  2. Fifth Wheel Towing

    Titan Towing & Hauling
    You don't really know towing vs cargo, do you? In a 5th wheel, hitch weight goes to your cargo. As the box is pretty much used up with the mount, additional cargo goes into the rv. So, that leaves passengers. Unless you get a really big rv, or are really hefty, there will be enough capacity for...
  3. Fifth Wheel Towing

    Titan Towing & Hauling
    I'm not sure where you are getting that from. Most 3/4 ton trucks will easily pull the average 5th wheel. I could get a 40ft Montana and a 3/4ton silverado, and have ample capacity to spare. In many cases, 5000+ pounds. Sure, a Titan would be over matched, but it is a 1/2 ton in towing circle...
  4. 150,000 mile maintenance

    Titan General Discussion
    What style of clamps did you go with?
  5. What did you do to your Titan Today?

    Titan General Discussion
    Well, most of its life was on a farm in MN. Lots of corrosive junk on the roads in the winter. I am in ND and our roads are almost as bad, as my hhr shows underneath. So, it isn't so much a neglect things, as it is that vehicles just don't have stellar lifespans.
  6. What did you do to your Titan Today?

    Titan General Discussion
    Well, that part isn't bad, but I'll probably need more than just that. I'll need the tailpipe part, probably the cats, and new o2 sensors. With as bad as everything is rusted, I'll likely not get anything off easily.
  7. Where to get replacement skid plat bolts?

    Titan Parts & Accessories
    Snapped 1 of mine, too. Lots of rust in the north. Can't imagine a bolt would be hard to find.
  8. What did you do to your Titan Today?

    Titan General Discussion
    Replaced front/rear diff fluids. swapped tranny fluid. Didn't have 10mm hex socket, so tras case is waiting. Replaced struts and tie rods. Cleaned and lubed dr window motor and regulator. Should get new exhaust, but a full system might just be more expensive than it is worth!
  9. Window stuck down!!!!! Help!!!

    Titan Interior Discussion
    After dinking with motors years, the commutator(comm) and brushes are weak links. The comms on these motors are a series of stacked rings, instead of solid. At least on mine, that is how the comm was built. Makes it harder to clean. The brushes also seem kinda short for long term continual use...
  10. Nissan will bail on trucks I fear :( - Thoughts?

    Titan General Discussion
    Nope, boring junk unless you want to pay an arm and leg. I've owned 2 fords and both were huge mistakes. I've driven other fords and they were dogs to drive. Nothing to endear them in any way. And for the price of a raptor, ohh ahh, a f150 with buffed body work. A $52,000 toy with a crap engine...
  11. Nissan will bail on trucks I fear :( - Thoughts?

    Titan General Discussion
    ALL manufacturers have their issues, every single 1 of them. I remember the v10 that used to be in the ram and the oil sieve it was. Woulda thought a harley had parked in the spot with the way it leaked. Ford makes boring crap. Chevy made stuff that rusted out in a handful of years. My 04 has...
  12. tranny fluid change question

    Titan Engine, Transmission & Drivetrain
    Oh, I am going to drop the pan, hence my drain, drop, fill, repeat. The pan is the drop part! :D Anyways, from what I can tell, the fluid is just used up. nothing smells burnt and the tranny seems to be working fine. So, I am going to just drain and drop the pan, clean if needed, refill, and...
  13. tranny fluid change question

    Titan Engine, Transmission & Drivetrain
    Well, I have zero idea of this trucks previous maintenance. I got it a couple years ago just for hauling things and towing and such. So, I have no idea the last time the tranny had any sort of drain done. So, I was just going to do the drain, drop, fill, & repeat method. Hard to say if there is...
  14. tranny fluid change question

    Titan Engine, Transmission & Drivetrain
    So, supposedly the fluid should not be changed if burnt smelling? So then, what should a person do? Obviously the fluid can't be left in as it will only get worse. Is this really a thing?
  15. transfer case o-rings

    Titan Parts & Accessories
    So, I am going to do a fluid swap on the diffs, tranny, engine, and transfer case. I need to know what o-rings are being referred to that should be replaced. I have an 04 CC. Thanks
