So, I looked at the Titan and really liked it then heard of the rear diff issue. I did some research and they corrected the issue by installing a diff cover with heat sinks to dissipate the heat.

Yeah, my 2008 Titan has the diff cover with the heat sink fins. I've only owned it for a year and its been great. It has 52,000 miles. I've put about 6,000 miles on it...most of them towing my TT. The previous owner was very hard on it, but I got it for a steal (repo). Judging by the condition of the receiver hitch, he towed a lot.

One of my trips with the TT was into a 45 mph head wind for about 5 hours. Maintaining 60 mph wasn't the issue...6 mpg was.

I've got a 2005 Armada and I've towed a 29' Cherokee with it. The Cherokee is up there in weight, but it is under the tow rating and the whole package is under the gross vehicle weight rating. The Armada towed like a dream - absolutely no problems.

I would like to know what you are doing about tow mirrors. I've got Titan/Armada tow mirrors, but the Armada has the puddle lamps, so the plugs don't match up. I'm having trouble finding anyone to rig up an adaptor. Right now, the tow mirrors are manual. Thanks for your input, and sorry to hi-jack the thread!

I've got mirror extensions, which worked ok for my pop up. I'm not sure how they will work for the TT. The strap to the existing mirror.
