    Saw a Cunmins Diesel Titan today. Too much chrome on it and back end looked odd.

    I wonder if they fixed the leaking real wheel seals. I had that happen to me 5-6 times. The last 4 years the right side failed each time. Each year, it was the end of April beginning of May, always out of the time frame of 12 months and 12,000 miles.
    Nissan did reimburse me the last time and was considering a new axle for me. The service manager at my dealership sunk the ship on that, as per Nissan. When I asked him, the s.m., he hymed and hawed then told me they wouldn't make as much money on it as if I paid for it myself.
    I had done all of my repairs and maintenance thou the dealer and even the service writers thought I would get a new axle and were shocked when he shot it down.

    It all worked out, I ended up with a new Tundra!

    My wife and I had to go to Alabama to get to my mother-in-law who was sick at the the time. After a 1,000 mile trip, 15 1/2 hour drive, we get to her house. As soon as I got out I smell gear lube. The dealer in Alabama was awesome, not only did they get me in to diagnose and fix, but gave me advice. After seeing my repair history with the right rear seal, they told me how to set myself up to get a new axle assembly. They had experience with customers getting them. So I followed what they did and it almost work but for my dealer back home.
    When I Called the dealer in Alabama, they were shocked as to my outcome. They even offered to go to bat for me but I would have had to make another trip back down, not that I need an excuse to head south. I just decided to wait it out, knowing in a couple of years, once we moved to Alabama, that I was going to be in the market for a new truck.
    Thankfully, my wife instigated and encouraged me to think about a new truck now. She did say, " you know, you have been talking about how much you like the Tundra." She's a keeper!
    It's a shame, at the Nissan dealer, I had built a great repore with the service writers and had my own technician. When I called, they knew only one tech was allowed to work on my truck.
    Fast forward a few months after the purchase of my Tundra and I call the Nissan dealer to get my name off their communications list. As I begin talking with one of the service writers, he says, "Hey Steve we were just talking about you and had not heard from you in awhile." So I told him that I now owned a Tundra. He was sort of shocked but not surprised. He even acknowledged that I was shafted.

    Sorry for the long post

    The kicker was she wanted me to get a 1794 model! If we weren't so close to moving and me wanting more property, I just might I have.

    Very much so Mat, I looked at one while getting tires for the wife's altima. 60k+ and when the saleslady came out I said
    .. you would think that your top model truck, I think it's called platinum reserve would come with a spray-in bedliner. I will say the interior was top notch, that's about it. I have only seen one out on the road and I travel 180 miles a day . Only a Tundra for this salty dog

    Used to really like the look of a mildly modded Titan, even if they weren't the greatest truck. The new ones look unsalvageable.

    We recently had to trade in our Sienna for Nissan NV 3500 for extra space. I have to say I am very impressed with Nissan's build quality. Their brake size dwarfs the competition. Their doors, suspension, etc., scream out 'heavy-duty'. I thought their 5.6 in a 1-ton vehicle will be lackluster compared to Tundra, but it's a beast. Their new tweaked 5.6 is even better from everything I hear. I love my Tundra, but my 1st non-Toyota choice will definitely be Titan.

    Those NV3500 are more ugly than a mud fence, but they do perform when you need load rating and comfort.

    A lot of our delivery drivers/hotshots have these vans and they are quite impressive inside. Tow 9500 lbs and has a load capacity around 3900 lbs.

    Good choice @chphilo

    Here's one picture right after I tinted the front window. This beast is longer than Tundra and about 8 inches taller. What surprised me was how it rode, considering it's 1 ton truck. Wife says it certainly rides smoother than Tundra. Power? We do have to be careful since this thing books.

    That is what some of the hotshots say about them as well. Great highway runners that are smooth.

    When we have major outages at work, we contract some of the guys from the east coast to transport important (heavy) parts back and forth. They like the speed limits out in the west.

    If I still had my contracting business I'd be all over this.

    How is the turning radius? Is it a bear to park?

    Thanks,

    I saw a black diesel XD Titan Pro-4 X and leveled coming back from our small hills here in CO. I have to admit.... nice....but at what cost?
