Well I did do it and I got a steal....

My wife is the quietest sweetest young lady, have to be to be married to me, and she played the stubborn wife who was not willing to move a single penny very well. :clap:

I have a link for some quick pictures here:

Truck Pics

Have this week going in: Spray in Bedliner, Class IV tow hitch with lighting harness, and front and rear strobes.

My brother has this truck 4X2 and he told me he tows his 3800 lb boat with no problems. I have the off road package also which raises the tow capacity suspension wise by about 800 lbs..... obviously not motor.

I am going to have a 6'8" snoway plow put on it for my driveway accounts, my brother will be driving the old F150 to do the other lots...

I was pleasantly suprised to find out that Nissan puts a sizable tranny cooler and oil cooler in this truck. That the plow will not void the remaining warranty on the truck either.

This thing is a 2003 and it is immaculate...

Went to Carmax, because they had the same truck for 19500 and would only offer 800 on my pick up. Told the sales people "see this truck out there? I bought it forn 17000 out the door and got 4200 trade in for my old pickup that you offered me 800 for. So this no haggle idea must be working well for you." To my suprise in the paper I just read that Carmax is one of the top 100 places to work in the nation. With my happy face coming in, I can tell why.

Life is good.

Nice truck! You'll love the spray-in liner. I've got a Rhino Liner in mine. Had to do over again, I'd go Line-X.

FWIW

Depo,

how much is it going to cost to install line-x? I am very curious to know. It just so happens that I bought an 01 Frontier this weekend. It has a factory plastic bedliner installed that I am not crazy about. I would love to have that spray stuff in the bed.

Probably around $350

Frankly, it's a tougher surface than Rhino (though Rhino's not exactly a poorly performing spray-in). The best part of it is it tends to be affected less by UV than Rhino, at least according to my eye (comparing my truck to a buddy's).

I really wanted to go line-x fellas, but I got some bad news in regards to no one within 100 miles of me does line-x. The Rhino Liner gave me a paper in hand warranty for the life of the truck including fading.

I am getting the spray bedliner, the IV hitch (which is overkill, but that is the way I am), and the four point strobes for under 700 dollars.... so not bad.

So what exactly do the strobes do for you?

The strobes are for the plow that is being placed on the truck..... to do my driveway accounts

In Indiana Plow Trucks must have yellow flashing or revolving lights......

So instead of those ugly yellow magnet mounts, I am having the strobes circuit placed in the truck that will flash the yellow turn signals instead.

Yes, Driveway accounts..... We here in NW Indiana on the lake front..... hire plow drivers to do our drives because of the amount of snow and the length of some of these drives in the rural area.

We get any where from $60 to 180 a push......

So a nice mid-size pick up is perfect for those type of accounts.

and Snow way is a company that makes commercial plows for mid size trucks that work awesome.

You're going to like that truck. My 2001 is up to 104,000 miles and I've only had to replace the front brake pads, on my second set of tires, and recently replaced the belts. Change the fluids every now and then and you'll be good to go.

I've done a LOT of towing with mine and while there are definately times I wish I had a larger truck, the mighty Nissan is just fine for its size. :thumb:

Well here is the update....

Got the Spray in Bed Liner... It is Rhino and I got it for $380... cause of it being the short bed.

Got a Class IV hitch on the truck... it is overkill.... but it is nice.

The company told me I was the lucky customer to have the first and last hitch put in on a Nissan Frontier, because of it being a pain in the arse.....


here is pics...

The liner looks very nice. It'll perform well for you, I'm sure you'll like it. But go back down there and have 'em spray over the tops of the rails. You'll thank me later.
