Using Frame Mounted Camper Tie Downs with Wheel to Wheel Running Board on a 2017 Nissan Titan XD

Question:

I have a new 2017 Nissan Titan XD truck and see you do not have front tie downs for my truck camper. The truck has wheel to wheel running boards. Can you help me on finding front tie downs. I am a return customer of your torqlift product.

I do have both front and rear camper tie downs that are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Nissan Titan XD. The TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs part # TLN2410 is for the front and the TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs part # TLN3404 is for the rear.

However, you will need to remove your wheel to wheel running boards in order to install the rear frame mounted camper tie downs. None of TorkLift's frame mounted camper tie downs are designed to be used with wheel to wheel running boards.

With that being said I have two options for you to attach a truck bed camper to your Titan. You can either remove the wheel to wheel running boards on your truck and swap them out for a set of cab length running boards like the Westin Thrasher Running Boards part # 28-81165 or you can leave your wheel to wheel running boards and use a set of bed mounted camper tie downs like the Brophy Stake Pocket Mounted Camper Tie Downs part # TDSF.

Regardless of which set of camper tie downs you use whether that be frame mounted or bed mounted, you will also need a set of turnbuckles to secure the camper to the tie downs. For the bed mounted option I recommend the Brophy Basic Turnbuckles part # TDHP and for the frame mounted option I recommend the TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles part # TLS9529-2-LK.

I have attached a review video of both the frame and bed mounted turnbuckles for you as well.

Why do you say the wheel to wheel running boards need to be removed for the "rear" tiedown to be installed. Don't you mean front?

The full length running boards do interfere with the custom rear-tie downs.
