I have a 2005 Titan LE with 121,000 miles, and I just add a Meyers 7.5 plow.
I haven't plowed yet with it. I'll let you know how it does. Meyers doesn't
make a bracket so I made one myself. I can add pics if you want of the bracket. If you look At the new pics. I added a pic of the truck with the plow on it yesterday it should be easy to find.

I bought my Titan brand new in 2004 and installed a plow on it that winter . I am most likely the first person with a plow on a Titan. I posted your exact question on this forum and had alot of negative feed back. Well after 6 years (5 winters) with the plow i am proud to say that this truck is a great plow truck. Recently the truck started riding like **** and i figured the plowing was starting to takes its toll. Turned out to be worn u-joints , replaced the u-joints and installed some new tires and my baby rides smooth as silk again. Only advice i can give you is to install a set of PRG's front coilovers , i installed the donahoe's for a $1100 ( they give you the lift you need in the front and are heavy duty yet ride great ). They also are durable , the stock front struts were toast after the first winter plowing. I made close to $35000 in the 5 winters i have the plow. Fronts struts , u-joints , tires and a new battery in 6 years ( knock on wood ) Dont be afraid to put a plow on...

Search "snowplow"
You'll find more threads, but i dont think anyone has plowed as much as i did

Could you post some pics of the mount that you made?

That looks like a monster with a plow on it! Hmmm, might have to make the investment soon.

Hi, there this is all I have for pic now. (I hope they come out i've never put pics in here before I'm new to all this) I took a Meyer EZ mount bracket off a ford F250 and I cut 3" off of it.(it hung down 3" to much) I then welded it back together. I used the one threaded bolt hole from the tow hook, and there was a hole 4" back from there I welded a nut to the inside of the frame. I used angle iron along frame and welded the Meyer bracket to it. I then add a piece of metal up the side of the angle in between the cab mount ,and drilled a hole and add a nut and bolt. I then add support bracket back to the cross-member.
hope this will help any one who wants a plow.

Check out Sno-Way. Blades are light, you can utilize exsisting headlights without mounting plow lights and they also have down pressure for back blading.

Is the brace on the cross member bolted or welded? I'm looking into getting one of those same mounts and fabbing it onto a frontier, which is same frame design so I think I can work something out like that. Just trying to get a better idea of how you installed your. I'm only using about 6.5 to 7 ft plow though. And already have heavy coils. Only going to use it for my driveway and a couple friends. I know the amount of stress plowing puts on everything but it should do alright.

The brace is bolted in, I used 2 holes in the cross member and put bolts through them. I also put pipe in the hole so the cross member would not crush when I tighten them down. Everytiing unbolts so I can put the truck back to stock. I had this 7.5" plow on a 1986.5 Nissan hardbody V6 for 4 years and never broke anything. That was the best truck I've ever had. (the truck rusted out badly) It had 305,000 miles on it when I gave it up. I hope the Titan holds up as good.

We had about a foot of snow this week and the T plowed like a dream. I plowed for 12 hours straight for a landscaping company. I only burned about 3/4 of a tank of gas - the other guys had to stop and refuel. Not Bad for only 95 miles - that's 5 MPG (if you're doing the math). As a counter-weight I cut a 55 gallon drum in half and filled it with concrete, put a hook in the top and loaded it in with the lift. That added about 500 pounds. I know 1 foot of snow doesn't seem like much, but by the time I got home, we had 3-4 foot drifts across the driveway. My T blew through them with no problem.

My wife calls the T "The Dozer" because you just can't stop it.
