Just curious to know if anyone has had a differential go out on them after they have installed a trutrac?

Only heard of a problem with the seals post install....and nissan's fix is to swap out the entire axle...bye bye trutrac after that.

This was probably caused by overheating of the previous stock differential..but it's hard to say for sure...especially for an idiot like me.

Detroit reported an incredibly low failure rate. I'd suspect most by poor install/setup. It numbered less than 200 IIRC out of many many thousands. Get it done by a good shop, and never worry about it again. I hope to get it by July. No one on the 2 major Titan sites has reported a failure that I ever saw.

The only reported problem I've heard of is whipping the grin of your face after install. Go for it, it's my favorite mod.

Not true. My dealer replaced the seal, spacer and bearing in less than 1/2 a day. My truck was dropped off at 8:00am and got a call it was ready at 1:00. This included flushing and refilling the diff and replacing a valve on the evap cannister. From what I have read, not all dealerships are created equal. So far so good. Time will tell I guess. All looks in order visually.

It is definitely my original axle as the only clean bolts were on the side with the seal and bearing replaced.

If the seals go, they replace the seals. If the gears go, they replace the whole axle.

I haven't had a single problem of any kind so far with my truck. I do have a couple of small bubbles in the bedliner and the bedliner has faded a bit, but those haven't concerned me yet. I have the Nissan extended warranty, I figured that to be prudent since it was a brand new model. So far, that hasn't been a wise investment, but the truck sure has been.

What do you guys think about cst spindle lift with coilovers and 35" tires on xe without tow package with trutrac for towing my boat a couple of times a year. Btw the boat weighs about 5-6,000 lbs.

The True Trac will be fine. Remember, you are not changing the ratio, so take it easy, don't exceed the ratings of the Titan, realize loss of torque from larger tires too. You'll be fine.

Seems silly to me to go with bigger tires, smaller gears, and want to tow a boat...but that's just me.

I am only towing the boat about 10 miles to the river and 10 miles back home maybe 5 or 6 times a year and it will mostly be driven on the weekends just to go riding with my raptor 700 in the bed.
