The TruXedo® Lo Pro side rails extend 3” into the bed on each side. In order to use the bed extender, it must not come within 3” of the side of the bed when rotated, or it must be able to detach from the truck, be manually rotated and re-attached. An adaptor kit is available to be purchased separately for 05-07 Nissan Frontiers and Nissan Titans with utili-trac systems. Please contact a dealer for more information.

We research all of the new trucks to make sure we have the best hardware to attach the TruXedo® Lo Pro to the truck. The hardware kits for these beds include modified clamps that will work with the various utility track systems.

Yes. Your trunk is fully functional and will open approximately 85% of the way.
Yes, a Lo Pro QT will work with a drop in bed liner that goes over the bed rails. However, installation for this particular application will vary slightly from the normal installation process. Small holes (approximately 2’x4”) would need to be cut in the bed liner where the clamps will be installed. This allows access to the inner lip of the truck bed. If the liner goes over the front bulkhead and creates a radius at the front, you may need to cut slits in the bed liner at the front of the bed to allow the rails to push further forward in the bed.
The reason the rails are all punched the same way is to keep them uniform, for manufacturing efficiency and to reduce tooling costs. By doing this, we are able to keep manufacturing time down to get you your orders faster and also to keep the price of our products lower.

The design of the Nissan Frontier is that the cab partially sits over top of the bulkhead. This minimizes space for the front header to sit on the bulkhead. In order for this kit to function properly, a cab weather seal is applied to the back of the bulkhead creating a larger contact surface for sealing. By adding this cab seal, it shortens the length of the truck bed and Lo Pro QT side rails. Since the rails are shortened on the Frontier kit, there is a possibility that the standard header guides would slide off the front of the side rails. We chose to bolt the front header to the side rails through an oblong hole, which still allows the tension control to be functional and eliminates the possibility of the front header from sliding off of the side rails.

With the wide variety of toolboxes and cargo management systems available, this will vary by application. Here are some guidelines to follow to help you – The top of the toolbox or cargo management system must be ½” below the top of the pickup bed. The toolbox length must also be a minimum of 7” shorter than the width of the inside front of the pickup bed. Subtracting 7” allows the toolbox to be opened when the cover is rolled completely open. When the cover is flipped open, the length of the opening from the front of the bed to the hinge is 29”. The toolbox should be spaced 3-4” away from the front of the pickup bed so it does not interfere with the latch.
