Stillen is a company well known for hopping up Nissan cars, especially
the 350Z, and they Costa Mesa, CA, based shop has built a strong reputation
for modifying fullsize SUVs. When Nissan released the Titan, the company
saw considerable potential in customizing the fullsize pickup. Their first
result was so stunning that Nissan officials asked Stillen to duplicate
a smaller brother out of the new Frontier for display at the 2004 SEMA
Both vehicles showcase Stillen superchargers, although the Titan model—which
will also fit the Armada and Infiniti QX56—won’t be available
until Spring 2005. The Titan supercharger is based on an Eaton twin-rotor
unit and has undergone extensive testing on the dyno and track. Stillen
hasn’t released horsepower numbers as development continues, but
the stock 305-horsepower V8 is already a stout performer and should do
well with a little extra boost. Besides the supercharger, the engine is
also fitted with a Stillen rear exhaust. For stopping power, Stillen uses
its own 15-inch rotors clamped by AP Racing 6-piston calipers.
The Titan exterior features a Stillen front bumper cover with integrated
driving lights and a rear roll. The chrome grille is from Street Scene.
Stillen designers came up with the paint and graphics scheme, which was
applied by Huckill Paint and finished with APE Wraps. Filling out the
bed are KTM off-road bikes.
The tall stance is courtesy of an 8-inch lift from California Super Trucks
but Stillen designed the front and rear sway bars. American Racing 20-inch
wheels are surrounded by BFGoodrich 35-inch tires. The interior is spiced
with Classic Soft Trim leather seating and a boomer sound system made
up of MA and HK components.
is set off by a trick Manik front bumper/push bar combo that integrates
four off-road lights. The supercharger is based off the same unit that
Stillen uses on the Z engines. Most of the other upgrades are similar
to the Titan except for the 3-inch suspension lift and smaller wheels
