Nissan Frontier Questions

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • I did some checking and for your 2015 Nissan Frontier the Curt hitch part # 13241 has been confirmed as a fit. The # 118525 has been confirmed as a fit as well for your vehicle.

  • 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.

  • The first thing I would check would be the tail light circuit of the Replacement OEM Tow Package Wiring Harness # 118263 that you just installed for voltage on the brown wire when the headlights are on. This will determine if the problem is in the truck or the trailer. If there is not voltage on the brown wire I would recommend that you check the connection of the # 118263 to your 2011 Nissan Frontier. Try unplugging it and inspecting the connector and then plug it back in...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The mounting system of the Tonneau cover you referenced is not compatible with the Utili-Trak system on your Frontier. We do offer covers that will work for you. For a 5 foot bed, the Access Lorado Roll Up Tonneau Cover, part # 834532006830 would be ideal. For a 6 foot bed, part # 834532006885 would work. If your Frontier has the sliding bed extender, an adapter kit, part # 834532006946 would be needed.

  • There are a couple of trailer wiring options available for the 2014 Nissan Frontier. We have harness # 118525 which plugs into the vehicle in two places: behind the passengers side kick panel and at the back of the vehicle. I have linked the instructions and a video showing installation on a 2012 Frontier. The other option is a hardwire installation using kit # 119147KIT. You will have to cut and splice into the vehicle tail light wiring to installation this harness. I have...

  • 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...

  • If you are using the Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118263, you may need a relay that is available through a Nissan dealer. This wiring harness was designed to work on Nissan Frontier trucks that came with the factory tow package. If your 2009 Nissan Frontier did not come with a factory tow package, you will need to use a different harness. The correct harness is Upgraded Circuit Protected Modulite with 4 Pole Harness and Hardwire Kit, # 119179KIT. I have incldued a link to the...

  • I would need to know the year and bed length/cab style of your Nissan Frontier to determine if there are any headache racks that will fit.

  • 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.

  • At this time the only hitches we have available for the 2011 Nissan Frontier, see link, are rated for up to 5,000 pounds gross towing weight. These same hitches, with the addition of a weight distribution system, are rated for up to 8,000 pounds gross towing weight. Weight distribution systems are recommended any time the trailer weighs more than 50 percent of the vehicle weight. You should check your owners manual and determine the max weight your vehicle can tow with the...
