So I just got a Nissan Titan 2006 LE 4x4 Crew Cab with 32,000 miles on it. I love the truck but I want something that I can take mudding every once in a while but still be a daily driver. I have been looking at the forums on this site for about a month now but I still have some unanswered questions.

1) Pro Comp Stage 1 6" lift kit, is that all I will need to lift my truck, and is it a complete kit? I have never lifted a truck before, but I slammed a few and I know my way around suspension well enough. But if I buy this kit will it a simple bolt on? Or am I about to spend three weeks trying to find this part, and that part (i.e. break lines) and then waiting on them to ship and show up at my door while my truck is on the local lift?

2) Also I love to play in water with my brothers jacked up bronco, what type of intake should I use? I am not talk about 6 feet or water but a 3 foot puddle doesn’t scare me. I hear that the KN Cool air intakes allow water to flow freely into the engine, so is there anything else out there to add HP but can stand up to mudding?

That’s it for now...I think, but any help you can give me would be great.

The pro comp lift comes with everything you need. Brake lines and all. It is the easiest to install. Intakes aren't meant to be waterproof, so any intake you get you need to remember that. I think if you got a closed box intake it might hold out more water as opposed to the ones that "seal" against the hood when its closed. But water can still get in through the opening in the intake box.

Ok cool but have you even done a lift yourself? Most people dont do there own work unless its something simple, but I am not like that I live to do everything, even if I fuk everything up lol. Also you said I should look for a clsed box are intake...well what if I leave the OEM intakeon it, it seems to have some weight behind it and ideas on that.
Also think you for answering my queston about the lift kit.

I did not do my lift on my old truck. But i did take apart the entire front end about 5 times. The back end is easy, just blocks. Pro comp gives good instructions. lots of guys have put the lift on themselves on here. Idk about intakes and making sure they keep the water out really. I was just saying if anything, i remember my nismo intake would get mud splashed on it alot as opposed to the oem one was protected by the box, like you said.

As far as the intake goes.....1st I'd look into finding some 4x2 XE fenderwell liners..from what I've read they dont have any gaps on the front side of the liner. (stops water from getting into the airbox when spinning the wheels in reverse in a water hole.) I don't have them and haven't had enough water in my airbox to reach the filter. That being said I have a Volant CAI (closed box), and I have had some muddy water enter the box but it never hit the filter. (you can see where it trickled down the bottom of the box).

Hope this helps.

So I have the Off-Road package, with lower gearing and the rancho-shock...so is there anything I need to know before getting a lift kit? Also I think I have found an air intake on mightytitan.com take a look and tell me what you think
Injen Intake works awesome in the MUD! - MightyTitans.com

I want to lift my T but I want it to be level too...so I was thinking about the Procomp stage 1 6" lift with some type of BFG 35" tires and 18" wheels, but will the lift kit also make my truck sit level, I dont want to have my *** end way up in the air and my front end eatin' earth.

Also thanks for all the input.

Do you know of a good website to get the XE fender well liners?

procomp will sit level, if anything your front end will be higher than the rear. The procomp I took off a guy's truck here in Mass sat perfectly level.
