Hi folks,

Finally got my Titan. Already ordered the console cell phone holder, side steps, and a tonneau cover. Gonna get set up with Line-X soon. Im now looking for storage options.

My Titan SV lacks any under seat storage tray or compartment to keep certain things id like to keep inside the truck from rolling around. Is there an aftermarket storage solution that fits under the crew cab rear seats?

Also, this will occasionally be a grocery-getter. I would like a way to be able to utilize say the rear 1/3rd of the bed and block off the front 2/3 so stuff doesn't roll around all over on the way home from the store. Is there a product that can allow me to do this? I've seen a couple of things on Amazon, but they seem to be directed more towards a hard box or a flimsy cargo net like found in the back of SUVs. Im thinking along the lines of some kind of divider to basically create a "trunk" of sorts in the back of my bed. Something easily removable or stowable when not needed or used. Any ideas? This is my first truck in over 20 years so I'm not sure whats out there.

They make this divider, part 999T7-W4300 .
Not sure if it works with Titan Boxes.

We ended up just using one of these tension bars that we place near the back, $15 at Princess Auto (Canada) and sure you can find them even cheaper at Menards, or Harbor Freight. Works great, stays put, we have the store bins, so I installed this in far enough that the bins just fit with the gate up.
I have though of making something out of plywood that would be able to be hooked into the rails on the sides of the bed as well, like a breakwall

and you can get a factory tailgate extender that, when folder inwards and tailgate up makes a little place like you want to make. that's what i used mine for on my frontier, to keep stuff from sliding around under the bed cover.

once i figure a way to make my cover fit with my sports bar, i will put my extender back in so i can use it to make that storage spot again. i take it out right now because i don't want someone to attempt to steal it and tear something up on my truck

I've thought about those but didn't know if they made them for Titan.

I looked at that one, which is exactly what I'm looking for, but they say its only for the king cab, not the crew cab.

I see now...doesn't make sense though. You would think it would work with either.

Our PR has the built in under seat storage, which serve their purpose. I am trying to convince my wife (it's her daily driver) to get a behind the seat storage solution, for storing flashlight, rags, etc etc.like this

Another option we looked at for the bed, but it's pricy for what it is was this... I thought I could make my own somehow with the redactable cargo bars

I may have to check out the weathertech. There is a similar product from a no name on Amazon but its 60 bucks more.

Does anyone know of a good switched fuse in the fuse panel I can tap into with a add-a-fuse? I'd like to use the direct wire on my radar detector instead of the coiley chord hanging down.

I bet you could use a combination of the cargo bars mentioned above and one of those basket net things. Or a really large trunk organizer.

i don't see lots of people with radar detectors anymore. now that the speed limits are decent. 55mph sucked for driving across texas but 75-85 is nice enough that you don't need to worry about being pulled over anymore.

is your state still a slow speed state?

you can just put a test light on the sides and see which works for what you want. they are cheap at Walmart or the local autoparts place. less than 10 bucks i bet

Yeah I'll have to probe them i guess. I have a voltmeter. Just figured someone might know off the top of their head. I cant remember which fuse I used in the rogue.

I keep one up all the time. Our interstates are mostly 70, with some 65 and 55 thrown in, but the main issue is alot of 3 and 4 lane highways rated at 45 that really should be higher. And the main route i take to work is littered with highway patrol most days, and they'll snag you for 5 over around here. City and county aren't so bad about it.

Haha! I see what you did there!

The rogue really was a nice vehicle, but my family just outgrew it. And coming from driving V8s and a supercharged V6, I couldn't get over the anemic performance of the little 4 cylinder.

I did look at SUVs, but was looking at full size options. Tahoe, Suburban, Expedition, Armada. All were way out of my price range. The wife liked the pathfinders, but I felt like they look like a minivan without sliding doors, and in order to add the third row they compromised on middle row legroom. I liked the pathfinder when it first came back out. It was closer to Armada size and more square.

The Kia Telluride was something I considered. I know a lot of people knock on Kia, but I have to be honest, the last 2 Kias I've owned didn't have as many small quality issues that my Nissan has had thus far (small quirks more than anything although I'm looking at a 3rd recall in less than a year for the Titan). Considering how well equipped you can get one for the price, I'm surprised I don't see as many on the road.

I like the telluride, as well as the vw atlas. Couldn't find anything in my price range though. My parents had a nice Kia. It was a good car.

Kia is actually owned by hyundai and both are great brands. We have one for our old st and it's got the 5 year/ 100k warranty, just like the titan, and comes with a free tires for life deal.

We bought it certified pre-owned from our local hyundai dealer.

If your looking for a somewhat cheap solution for a bed divider/grocery holder, here's what you do. Go get either a wood 2x6 or 2x8 or maybe a 2x10 in eight foot length (mine is untreated since it hardly ever sees rain under the tonneau). Then cut it to fit in the slots near the rear of the bed. It works greats and its removeable.
