Hello out there! I know there are a couple other posts out there on this topic, so I'll try to limit it to questions that haven't already been answered.

 

We just had our 7th kid and need to upgrade our seating capacity. I really like the NV, and love the idea of a 4WD conversion on it!

 

Originally I was sold on a Quigley conversion, until I realized they were on the other side of the country. Then I was thinking Advanced, but I've heard some not so great reviews on their work. I found out today that Tim Dahle Nissan in South Jordan, UT does a conversion using all Nissan parts. They are endorsed by Nissan and keep the original warranty intact. (Ken Garff has it done by Advanced)

 

I really like the idea of getting the conversion at the time of purchase so I can roll the cost into the financing. However, I'm concerned as I've seen a couple of these get lemoned out, and I'm not sure how the conversion would affect that should I end up with a lemon. My wife thinks we should have the van for a while first to make sure it's not going to get lemoned, but I know if I go that road she'll back off the conversion later.

 

So in the end, I have 2 questions:

 

1. Has anyone had any experience with Tim Dahle's 4x4 conversion? Is it as good as Quigley? Should I be looking somewhere else?

 

2. Does anyone know how the conversion would affect the vehicles lemon law status? I know complete aftermarket would not be covered, and may even void the lemon law altogether; but what if its done through the dealer?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

 

Tim

All you lose is Advanced’s new NV 4x4 warranty for a shorter used NV 4x4 warranty if you buy your NV now. There have been no complaints on this forum about Advanced. You really need to call Advanced and bundle up your family in your Tundra and take the beautiful drive up 1-15 to SLC.

There have been no posts on this forum regarding the Titan 4x4 parts builds. Again, you need to call Tim Dahle Nissan to get details and take in both places.

Once you know let us know...

There are very few posts on this forum regarding NV problems, certainly none that “lemoned out.”

Found out something interesting today. Jack Jessop from Tim Dahle informed me that conversion not only uses strictly Nissan parts, but their conversion is covered under the original manufacturer warranty. No 3rd party coverage. This means that if anything goes wrong, repairs can be performed at any Nissan dealership. 

 

He also stated that he has seen other vehicles brought in under the lemon law, and Nissan included other dealer added features in the value.

 

I have a question up on a legal site in regards to official Lemon Law status. Will keep everyone here informed of what I learn.

 

Thanks!

Thanks for getting back on this. So far, posts show there are 3 dealerships installing Titan 4x4 conversions, one in UT, AZ and TX.

I still wouldn’t worry about NVs needing the “lemon law” with the 100k warranty in place. Did Jack specifically say what Nissans were involved? Also, he is wrong when he says “any” dealership can service or do warranty work on NVs. You have to go to commercial dealerships and there are very few in the west.

Interesting... I didn't know about the other 2 dealerships. Do you know who they are? The guy I talked to at Dahle said they were the only one's. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time a dealer tried to upsell their own status...

 

I also understand that not just any dealer would be able to handle the repairs. Only those properly equipped. Putting aside the idea that I would probably only ever go back to the guys that installed it in the first place to have it fixed.

Based on 2 posts, one quite awhile ago. The AZ dealership is Avondale Nissan. I could be wrong, but easy enough to check all the commercial dealerships (6?) in the Phoenix valley. Only one dealership in Tucson and none in Flagstaff.

The other post is from yesterday by ketchbaw (TX) under Wheels and Tires, Lift for NV 3500. PM “him” for details as “he” appears to be in the market for one.

You can google NV 4x4 conversions and Tim Dahle is the only dealer that comes up that uses Titan parts. You could try refining the search. I’m surprised no CA dealers are doing this.

I don’t know about the Titan conversion, but I have been very pleased with my Advanced 4x4. From what I have heard the Quigley disables 4 low for some reason. 4 low came in handy when 27” of snow fell on New Years. I was still sliding around a bit when it was in 4 high.

just for clarification, ketchbaw is talking to Tim Dahle Nissan in South Jordan, UT.  even though I live in texas I don't know of a dealership down here that does conversions.  Will get Dahle to build out what I need and then fly in to pick it up.

Ketchbaw, Thanks for the clarification. Have they built any?

I just looked at Avondale Nissan. No mention of 4x4 conversions, so TD Nissan may be the only dealer doing this.

I talked to Avondale, confirmed they are not doing it. They do not believe anyone in that area is either.

 

Ketchbaw, please keep us informed on how your experience goes!! Also REALLY curious to see how the warranty on parts is actually written up. They told me the original is extended to cover the modifications, but dealers have a tendency to ... embellish.
