Prerunner Features

Nissan Titan Prerunner The Titan of Prerunners

Our friends at Woolworth Motorsports sent us a few pictures of this Titan Prerunner owned by Troy Johnson after doing some work on it. We were so impressed with the look on this Titan we contacted Troy to get more details.

Troy’s Titan started life as a 2008 Nissan Titan SE Pre Runner 2 Wheel Drive, then its new life began with the mods Troy choice to make this Titan the prerunner it is today.

We start up front with the Tig Welded Mid-Travel Kit from PRG Products. This kit includes CST 4 in spindles, custom lower boxed A-arms, Chromoly tubular upper control arms, and to dampen the rough terrain 2.5” Sway-Away coil-overs.

Stopping the front from bottoming out are a set of Sway-Away bump stops, and Troy used braided stainless steel brake lines to handle the increased travel.

Making more room for the 35×12.5×18 BFG Mud Terrains KM2 tires mounted on Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy polished rims with beadlocks are a set of Glassworks Unlimited fiberglass front fenders.

So the rear of the Titan could keep up with the front Troy had a set of Deaver c-30 3-leaf spring pack with the toe leaf taken out, and Sway-Away 2.25 piggy-back shocks. PRG supplied the rear shackles giving the Deavers more room to move.

Instead of fiberglass bedsides Troy opted to have Woolworth Motorsports flare the bedsides to give more the Titan more bump travel.

Now it was time for a little protection. Woolworth Motorsports was called on to make a custom prerunner bumper with skidplate in the front that holds a set of Soltek Baja Designs Spotter Lights. Woolworth also made a custom rear bumper to match the front one.

Visibility in the dirt is important so Troy had Woolworth Motorsports build a custom light rack on the rear of the cab of the Titan to house a pair of LED brake lights and amber lights. A single amber flood light was incorporated on the top of the bed rail so Troy does not accidently get nerfed while in the desert.

Here are some more shots of Troy’sTitan Prerunner.

On the performance side of this prerunner build Troy chose a K&N air filter and a 2-chamber Flowmaster with a 3” pipe to help the Titan V-8 breathe a little easier.

As most prerunner owners know the factory jack is worthless once you get an adequate tire on your rig, so Troy mounted a Craftsman 2-ton race jack with Raceworks jack mount, underneath back seat.

It is nice to see someone build a prerunner from something other than a Ford or Toyota. There are so many trucks on the market that can be built into high performance prerunner, it just takes a little more imagination.
