Truck Thursday: Nissan "Project Titan" is one awesome expedition truck

Nissan Project Titan Those of that have been following my ramblings on these pages know that I have a lust for expedition vehicles. Perhaps it is from my father, a geography professor and a Lada Niva owner, or my mother who is a frequent traveler and a Jeep Wrangler owner, or perhaps my six week long African safari during college left an impression on me. Whatever the case, I love the damn things. Unfortunately, in my personal life I have neither the need, the time, the place, or the funds for a proper expedition vehicle, which is why I bore you with them here. Nissan recently created a crowd-sourced projected which will allow “Iraqi war veterans and Wounded Warrior Project Alumni David Guzman and Kevin McMahon embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure… across the Alaskan landscape, Nissan will document the adventure, with a YouTube series set to launch this fall. The adventure begins today when Guzman and McMahon shift into drive in the Alaskan Frontier. To follow the team’s thrilling journey through the Last Frontier, visit the Nissan Trucks Facebook page: Facebook.com/nissantrucks.” Cool! A nicely built expedition truck that will actually be used! Nissan Project Titan 2 The project started off with a 2014 Titan Crew Cab PRO-4X. A NISMO cold-air intake and Borla cat-back exhaust system were added (cool, but not really needed). The truck rides on 18″ wheels (too big IMO) wrapped in 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/T tires. Suspension is jacked five inches by a PRG 4″ Long Travel suspension kit. ARB front bumper supports auxiliary lights and a winch. Inside the bed cap is a fridge and tons of well designed storage. Behind the truck is a matched Manley military/expedition trailer with a kitchen, pop-up tent, water/fuel storage and a spare tire. Lockers, I need this truck but I question if the trailer is really needed – all that stuff can probably fit inside and on the roof of the truck. Some ramps may be a good idea, too. Looks like they have some rock sliders on there too, and other equipment not mentioned on Nissan’s site or in videos. Check out the short, but very promotional looking, build videos and more pics below that. Project Titan Project Titan Project Titan Project Titan Project Titan
