Trailer Htich Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier - Draw-Tite

Now that we've got our 2 inch by 2 inch receiver tube opening, this is going to work out really well for your cargo carriers, ball mounts, bike racks, whatever needs you might have, and a reinforcement collar around the end here. It's got kind of more of the rounded edge to it, and it will be tucked in behind our bumper just a little bit here, so I don't think we'll have to worry about bumping into it with our knees or anything like that. You'll see the double pin holes here on the side.

Hollywood Racks Sport-Rider-SE2 Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today, on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we'll be doing a test for the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider SE2 platform-style, tilting two-bike rack. That's part number HR1450. I've already got it on the back of the Frontier here, just to give you a good idea what it's going to look like. It secures out bike in three spots. We have this frame hook that goes over the top of our top tube, putting down pressure into our front and rear cradles, and then the hook-and-loop straps just go between our spokes. Now, real quick, before I take the bike off, I just want to show you one of the features of the bike. It can tilt backward, allowing us better access to our tailgate.

The one for our down tube is going to help prevent a lot of sway in the bike when we're on the road.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier we will be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, part number 90885. To help us out with our install, we will also be installing the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter for Nissan vehicles, part number 3050-P. In order to test it out what we need to do is hook up our trailer which is what you'll be doing if you're watching this at home. In our case we happen to have a tester that simulates a trailer load so we've got that plugged in. As you can see, we now have a C instead of a NC for connection because we do have a trailer connection back there. We're able to do our manual override and see the output that it's giving to our trailer. We're also able to adjust our gain here as you can see.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier we'll be taking a look at the WeatherTech Front Auto Floor Mats in grey. These are available with part number WT460471. They're also available in black, with part number WT440471 and in tan with part number WT450471. Now getting these installed could not be simpler. First we'll want to do here on the driver's side is we'll go ahead and remove our old, Frontier factory mats, or if you have any other non-stock mats that you're putting there you will want to take those out and we'll set those aside in case we ever want to use them again later. I can't see why we would though because we've got our brand new WeatherTech floor liners which are laser measured to fit precisely inside of our vehicle and custom contour to the shape of your floor pan here. As you can see the precision measurement comes all the way out here along our threshold up to our foot rest. Goes all the way up under the pedals, contours around here and completely covers our floor pan so we're keeping that mess contained in the mat and not on our carpet.



Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today, on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we'll be doing a test fit of the Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform. That's part number RR42114BF. Now, its dimensions are 38 inches wide by 48 inches long. It's going to allow you to mount a wide variety of Rhino-Rack accessories. You can see you got all these channels here that you can mount anything from bike racks to gas cans to spotlight mounts, really anything at all. We've already got 3 of the feet installed around our roof rack system. I'm going to go ahead and show you how to install the last one.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier we'll be doing a test fit of the Curt Cargo Carrier. That's part number C18150. As you can see it's a sizable carrier. It's dimensions are 20 by 60. We've got plenty of room to tie down our cargo with the raised side rails here. It's held in place by a pin and clip.



Rola TX-104 Hitch Bike Racks Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we'll be doing a test for the Rola TX-104 Bike Rack. That's part number 59401. I've already got it loaded on the back of the Frontier, just to give you a good idea of what it's going to look like. Now it secures our bike in three different spots. We have two straps for our top tube and then we have one for our down tube. The one for our down tubes going to be our anti-sway strap, that's going to help prevent a lot of the sway in our bike from back and fourth and also help prevent bike to bike contact as well as bike to vehicle contact. Let's go ahead and undo our straps, remove our bike and take a closer look. It's always a good habit to replace your straps, so they don't get lost or damaged. Go ahead and close those. Now let's take a measurement.



WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we will be taking a look at the Weathertech Custom Auto Floor Liners for the front in gray, part number WT461761. These are also available in black, part number WT441761 and in tan, part number WT451761. Installing these couldn't be simpler. We're over here on the driver's side of our Frontier and we're just going to remove the old mats by simply removing them from the hooks and setting them aside for later, should you ever want to return them. Not that you would, though, because you've got your brand new Weathertech Custom Auto Floor Liner that is literally laser measured to fit the inside of your vehicle. It has attachment points for your hooks, so the new one's going to fit right over those same hooks. As you can see, it is a complete custom design, designed to fit from threshold to center hump with precision molding all the way around.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier we'll be taking a look at, and installing, the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller from one to four axles. This is a proportional brake controller. Part number 39510. To help us along with our installation, we will also be installing the Tekonsha wiring adapter. Part number 3050-P. With our brake controller installed, now's a good time to test it. Before we tuck our wires out of the way I like to get any testing done.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we will be installing the Takancha Primus IQ brake controller. This is for 1 to 3 axles. It's a proportional brake controller. The part number is TK90160.

To help us out with our installation today, we will be using the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter, part number 3050-P. Now that we have it in place, we can go ahead and test it out. The knob here is going to operate our gain. This light is adjustable, so depending on the level of gain, you're going to get a more or a less intense red out of that LED, all the way up to the end where we're going to get a solid red. As you can see, stepping on our brake pedal as well, it sends a signal back to our trailer.



Hidden Hitch Ball Mounts Review - 2016 Nissan Frontier

Today on our 2016 Nissan Frontier, we'll be test fitting the hidden hitch ball mount that has a 4-3/4 inch rise or a 6-inch drop. It's rated at 6,000 pounds. The part number on that is 80240. Now we've already got our ball mount installed in the drop position. I'll give you a measurement. From the center of our hitch pin hole out to the center of the ball, we're going to have about 11 inches. With a ball installed, we are going to have about 10 inches clearance to the bottom of the shank.

Nissan Frontier Questions

  • If you only want to use the basic lighting functions provided by the 4-Way (left/right turn, brake, and running lights) then all you will need to do is plug the 4-Way end of the Adapter 4 pole top 6 pole, # 30637, into your vehicle 4-Way. The trailer 6-Way will then plug into the 6-Way receptacle on the adapter. You will also need to ground the white wire on the adapter to the vehicle frame at a clean and corrosion free metal surface. The remaining wires (blue for electric brakes...

  • The Derale transmission coolers we sell are designed more as a supplemental cooler that is meant to augment the factory transmission cooler portion of the radiator, not replace it entirely. If you are experiencing the common problem with the radiator leaking causing the engine coolant contaminating the transmission fluid, your best bet really would be to have the original radiator replaced. I did a Google search using the keywords Nissan Radiator Problem and found that Nissan...

  • The best way to decide which class cooler you need is to take a look at what you will be towing and where. If you will be towing a light load, less than 2,000 pounds, in flat driving conditions, your vehicle will do fine with a Class I. If you will be towing 6,000 pound load through some hills, I would use the Class III cooler. I prefer the 8000 and 9000 series. They are built a little heavier and are more resilient. The 7000 series are built a little lighter and can be damaged...

  • If your fully loaded weights are close to what you listed, the Weight Distribution System, # PS49903, would be an excellent choice for your setup. The spring bars in this system are rated to handle tongue weights from 750 to 1000 lbs and when you add the weight of the weight distribution system components and any weight you will be loading behind the rear axle of your truck, your tongue weight is going to end up somewhere right in the middle of that tongue weight range which...

  • Both of the snow chains and snow cables will work great in snow conditions. The difference is the snow chains will give you better grip in more ice conditions because the chain links will bite into the ice where as the snow cables tend to slide over the ice. The snow chains will make a little more noise on dry pavement as compared to the snow cables. The Pewag Tire Chains, # PWXMR81V, you have referenced is a good choice for snow chains on your 2007 Nissan Frontier 4x4. Another...

  • You will want to stay within the speed range the manufacturer of your chains recommends, typically 25-30 miles per hour is the limit. To prevent damage to the chains and your tires you should remove the chains once you get on dry pavement. I attached an FAQ article below on snow chains that you might find informative.

  • The price for the Erickson Truck Bed Ladder Rack # EM07705 includes both of the ladder rack uprights that you see in the main product picture. I attached a review video for this rack for you to check out as well.

  • I checked with Valley Industries and the part number you referenced 30608, is not designed for use with the 2012 Nissan Frontier. It is designed for Titan and Pathfinder vehicles. The correct wiring harness for your Frontier without a factory tow package would be part # 118525. The relays and harnesses in this package will provide all the parts for activation of the brake-turn-taillights on your 2012 Nissan Frontier. We have a video showing this installation that should be...

  • If your Frontier running light fuse blows when you connect your trailer there are several potential causes. It could be that the trailer lights are demanding more current than can be provided by the harness, although this is unlikely since the TowReady Harness # 118525 can deliver up to 7.5 amps per circuit which is higher than many similar products. If your trailer has been modified by the addition of extra running lights these may demand more current than can be provided. What...

  • First, make sure the valve stem hole in your wheel is .625 inches diameter. If not, the # AM20906 valve stem is not the correct part for your wheel and should not be used for safety reasons. You would need the # AM20903 valve stem for a wheel with a .453 inch valve hole, which is normal for a 13 inch wheel that the ST175/80R13 Radial Trailer Tire, # AM10210 that you purchased fits on. If your valve stem hole is .625 inch, the the process for tightening the valve stem in the...

  • To install the Timbren Rear Suspension Enhancement System, # TTORTUN4L, on your 2012 Nissan Frontier Pro4x 4x4 you will need to safely raise the vehicle to allow the axle to hang freely, then loosen the axle u-bolts and remove the OEM rubber bump stop. Next, install the lower bracket from the Timbren kit where the OEM bump stop was. Finally, tighten the U-bolts and safely lower the vehicle. I have attached installation instructions for you to review.

  • One option for your 2014 Nissan Frontier is to use a truck bed rack such as # INRT101-65. This system includes bars that are 65 inches long. The canoes would sit on the bars right above the bed and would overhang the rear of the truck with this set up. Another option is a ladder rack such as # EM07705 with 66-3/8 inch long bars. The bars on these two systems are going to be longer since it sounds like the bars on your Frontier span the distance between the side rails so there...

  • The bolts for installing Hidden Hitch, part # 87539, are hex bolts M12x1.25x35mm. These bolts are included with the hitch. All Hidden Hitch bolts and nuts are grade 5 unless otherwise specified. The bolts should be tightened to 68 Lb.-Ft. If you need a replacement set of hardware, we have them available. Part # RHK is our replacement hitch hardware kit. You select the hitch manufacturer and enter the model number and we will put together a hardware kit for your hitch. All the...

  • If your 2006 Nissan Frontier came with a factory 7-Way and you are using a Tekonsha brake controller like # 90885 all you will need to install it is wiring harness # 3050-P. If the truck did not come with a trailer connector you will need to first install a 4-Way wiring harness, # 118525, and then install a 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. I have included some links that should help you with installation.

  • You would use a tee, # F3025-1, if you wanted to be able to fill both bags at the same time. However, if you carry many different sized loads it would be more beneficial to keep them separate because depending on the load, one side might need more air than the other. Inflation valve, # F3032-1, is what is used in the kit # F2403, so you would not have to get a different valve. Most portable air compressors are not all that great at filling something like air bags, especially...

  • You will need the Curt Relay Kit # C57000 to complete the wiring on your 2012 Nissan Frontier. Like you guessed, since your 2012 did not have the tow package it is missing a couple connection points. Check out the video I attached that shows these relays being installed on a similar vehicle as yours

  • To determine the correct parts for adding electric brakes to your trailer with idler hubs you will need to determine if your axle has a brake mounting flange and its bolt pattern. If the axle has a brake mounting flange then it most likely has a 4 bolt pattern. If there is not a brake mounting flange you would need to change out the axle. This would require special ordering an axle with a brake mounting flange installed on it. You could have brake mounting flanges welded to...

  • I spoke with my contact at Truxedo and she informed me that TruXedo Edge Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover # TX884101 that you referenced is compatible with your 2013 Nissan Frontier crew cab with a 6 foot bed, factory rail caps and factory utili-track. The only issue you will have is with the sliding bed extender. She said that will not work with the # TX884101 and it will need to be removed for it to work. There are several differences between the # TX884101 and the TruXedo Lo...

  • Although we don't offer Fastway weight distribution systems anymore, I can provide a pretty good guesstimate. The round bar extends about 2-1/2 inches below the weight distribution head, while the trunnion bar does not extend below the weight distribution head at all, as you can see in the side-by-side photo I edited for you. This is why we recommend folks that have vehicles with low ground clearance like minivans and compact trucks go with a trunnion bar system.
