Kit developed by ICON and won’t void warranty

Jeep isn’t the only automaker now offering factory-backed lift kits. That’s right Nissan is launching a suspension lift for the Titan and Titan XD pickups. The hardware comes from ICON Vehicle Dynamics, a well-respected company that designs and builds suspension lifts and other off-road gear for trucks and SUVs. The lift kit will give Titans up to three inches of additional height while not voiding the truck’s factory warranty.

Aftermarket lift kits are extremely popular these days, but such modifications generally result in kissing a factory warranty goodbye. That’s a big deal with any vehicle, but thanks to Nissan’s five year/100,000-mile warranty on the Titan and Titan XD, it meant giving up quite a bit of security.

The ICON suspension will be purchased an installed at local Nissan dealerships and will take roughly four hours to complete. The kit includes adjustable coil-over shocks, custom rod end bearings, and ICON’s “Delta Joint” upper ball joints. In addition to preserving the warranty, the lift kit is completely bolt-on, meaning it can be removed when it’s time to sell or return the truck at the end of a lease.

Nissan says the lift kit also retains the Titan and Titan XD’s payload and towing capacities

Nissan says the lift kit also retains the Titan and Titan XD’s payload and towing capacities, which is a big deal for many truck owners. As for the lift kit parts themselves, they are warrantied by ICON.

Nissan hasn’t released pricing for the lift kit but did say availability will begin in the spring of 2018. The kit is designed for Crew Cab 4WD models, so extended and single cab models are out of luck.

Press Release

CHICAGO – For the first time ever, Nissan is offering a factory-authorized suspension lift kit for select models of the TITAN and TITAN XD full-size pickups. The bolt-on kits, developed by California-based ICON Vehicle Dynamics, offer a more aggressive exterior appearance, increased ground clearance and a suspension lift of up to three inches. Constructed for TITAN and TITAN XD Crew Cab 4x4 models, the suspension lift kits will be available beginning spring 2018.

  • New ICON Vehicle Dynamics kit is completely bolt-on – no cutting or drilling required
  • Suspension lift kit, available through Nissan dealers, includes adjustable coil-over shock absorbers to provide up to three inches of suspension lift
  • Installs in under four hours through Nissan dealerships
  • Installation does not void segment-leading1 "America’s Best Truck Warranty" on other TITAN and TITAN XD components

"We worked with ICON, a proven name in suspension lift-kit engineering, to develop the first kits to be offered through our Nissan dealer network," said Billy Hayes, division vice president, LCV and Trucks, Nissan North America, Inc. "They came back to us with a kit that is easy to install, maintains TITAN and TITAN XD’s impressive factory payload and towing capabilities, and allows the trucks to be returned to stock for resale or end-of-lease return."

The ICON suspension lift kit package is available on TITAN and TITAN XD Crew Cab 4x4 models. The kits include adjustable-height coil-over shock absorbers tuned specifically for TITAN and TITAN XD, custom rod end bearings and patent-pending Delta Joints. No cutting or drilling is required.

"With the suspension lift kit’s increased wheel travel and damping ability, ride quality should be enhanced both off-road and on," added Hayes. "TITAN and TITAN XD are the most accessorized models in the entire Nissan lineup and the ICON kits are a great addition."

Every 2018 TITAN and TITAN XD is covered by America’s Best Truck Limited Warranty1, featuring bumper-to-bumper coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Consumers can see their dealer for limited warranty details. The ICON suspension lift kit is covered by a separate warranty offered by ICON Vehicle Dynamics.
