hi all...
New to the site. Been reading for awhile and am finally trading my gas guzzlin' dodge in for a Titan. i am looking at an 06 LE OFFROAD. But it has 18" rims and no e - lock button. Is this possible? I thought that all offroad packages had the e-lock button. Can someone please shed some light on this for me? thanks

Yep it should have the E- Lock button. Check to see if it has skidplates and the lower gear ratio. If it doesn' t than the delaer is trying to pull a fast one on you. The off road version comes with 17 inch rims too. I think you are looking at a regualr LE 4X4 non offroad.

Thats what I thought. It has the 4x4 offroad sticker, bfg's(on the 18" rims?) no skids and no elock button. Must a scam. when I proposed this to the sales person he said he was sure it was the "off road" package. I told him, sounds like a sticker to me?!! But then searching on ebay I saw another one for sale with the same situation. offroad decal and no elock button?

i cant post a link url yet, but on ebay search LE 4x4 and there is an example. "offroad" LE without the e-lock button. (Silver Titan)

check this out. this is similar to the same truck i was going to buy. I am confused...

You can get the stickers from ebay for few bucks. The off road package has 17" wheels and tires. It has the elocker button next the the tow button. If the rim on the truck has 5 spokes then it is an SE, 6 spokes then LE, 7 spokes with BF Goodrich 285/70/17, Lower axle ratio, skid plate with a little door for the oil filter, Rancho shocks, and the elocker buton then it is off road. The off road package adds about $1000 for the price of the Titan when it is new. Good luck, It looks like you have done your homework and they will not be able to take advantage of you.

Can you get the Off-road option on an LE?

When I was at the dealer getting my '08, I saw a used Titan that was advertised to include the "off-road" package. It had step rails, fog lights
and A/T tires but no e-locker. So, the dealers seem to be taking some liberty with the terms.

I can back that up. I have an early 04 LE with OR and BT, I have the 17's, skid plates, and reduced gears, but no e-locker button.

VDC doesnt do squat off road ABLS is what I believe you are talking about.

uuummmm, you got screwed over... write your VIN down and go have it ran at the Nissan stealership, or call Nissan Consumers Affair and have it ran, from what you're describing, it doesn't seem like the OR package (you need to have skids under front and tranny/tranfer case, supposed to have Rancho Coil Overs and shocks too)

In 1/2 of the 04's it was possible to have Offroad with VDC instead of the elocker. For me, that was fine since I drive frequently in the snow and rain and I use the traction control more than I would a locker.

early build 04's did NOT include the e-locker as stated here. after that, all OFF-ROAD pkg equipped TITANS have the e-locker. my feb 04 built SE does not have the e-locker. i want to say it started showing up april-may 04 builds.

Right you are! My 04 has the E-LOCKER. I couldn't get the VDC at that time. If I remember correctly, mine is an April or May build.

Thanks for the replies. I guess it's buyer beware. I am looking for an 06 LE OR and BT. What a difficult truck to find. Does anyone think an 05 would be the same quality or should I hold out for an 06? Just wondering... thanks

IMHO get the 06 or newer. Hold out for OR and BT. In 06 the step rails are deleted with the OR package. You can add them if you like. Sounds like a decal was added on the truck you are looking at.

that really depends on the kind of deals you find. There are really very minimal differences between the 05 and 06s. The biggest being the brake fix. Which I guarantee if you find an 05 will have the newer brakes. The rest of the stuff is cosmetic things one of which is N/A with big tow (power folding mirrors on LE)

When I got my truck I got it new last September. It had EXACTLY what I wanted and it was like they were holding it on the lot for ME so I could'nt refuse it and it has been a dream.:doublekis
