New Titan owner and new board member.
So I just purchased the above mentioned truck and plan on pulling a 24' boat. I'm guessing under 7000lbs.
From every thing I've read on here it has Big Tow? Pull out tow mirrors, Trans temp gauge, cruise at 70 mph = 2000 RPM's.
So I should be good, Right?

Should be OK if the tongue weight isn't too heavy. I'd have a look at the shackles to see if they are not failing. They tend to fail around the bushing in the rear and send the spring through the bed.

I'll take a look at the shackles. Exactly what am I looking for? And if they are failing what is the best fix?

Just crawled under the truck and took a look. Everything appears to look good. I also was looking at the hitch. Nissan 10000 lb with 1000 lb tounge weight.
This is a very clean 1 owner truck. Looks to be very well cared for.

08 and up shackles are good. The 04 ones more or less unroll from around the bushing...

Ok thanks.
Just crawled under again and took a couple of pix. It appears that the shackle totally wraps around the bushing. Don't really see how it could unwrap. Maybe they have been changed already?

They will unroll and do serious damage.
