Don't know about the 08's. My 05 has BT without the bed package.
I tried it and just as you said, it won't let you do one without the other. I also have a 04 with big tow and no utility package. Some brainiac decided that people are to stupid to decide what they want on their trucks. I have written a couple of letters to Nissan about this and they explained to me in their reply that in their research, people wanted people to spend extra money on crap they did not want or need. Personally I don't have a lot of money to waste on stuff I will hardly ever or never use.PRJ said:Check out the Nissan website and start configuring a truck. When I pick the Big Tow package it automatically adds the utility bed package.
