The WeatherTech AlloyCover is a lightweight foldable hard truck bed cover for those looking to maximize security and durability without compromising style and aerodynamically-friendly qualities. This low-profile hard truck bed cover features an easy-to-use tri-fold design, which makes for effortless installation and removal. The Alloycover also features the AutoLatch II latching system that when paired with a locked tailgate provides excellent security. To further protect your cargo from unwanted access or vulnerabilities, the bed cover incorporates strong aluminum panels with durable, watertight, reinforced vinyl coated hinges. Each panel is made from aluminum alloy commonly found in commercial trailers – yeah, we got you covered!
With our products, we like to think it’s better to be seen than heard, which is why the hard truck bed cover is carefully designed to reduce unwanted vibrations and excessive noises commonly found in most bed covers. To solve these issues, we incorporated flexible rubber seals, vinyl coated hinges and reduced metal-on-metal contact allowing for a nice, quiet ride in front.
LOW PROFILE DESIGN
The truck bed cover sits less than half an inch above the truck bed and incorporates a textured matte black finish that blends with your truck's OEM bed caps to provide a sleek, consistent look.
ULTIMATE PROTECTION FROM THE ELEMENTS
The water-shedding design and waterproof, reinforced vinyl coated hinges route water away from the bed without gutters or drains. The hard truck bed cover overlaps the bed rails with a continuous seal along the entire length of the side rails, preventing elements from entering the truck bed.
STRENGTH PAIRED WITH A LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN
Extruded aluminum channels support the panels to hold up to 400 pounds of evenly distributed weight, while weighing approximately 50 pounds for a high strength-to-weight ratio.
INTEGRATED STORAGE CLIPS
Sleek, retractable storage clips hold the hard truck bed cover secure, while rigid standoffs with rubber pads keep panels properly spaced in the folded position. No adjustments needed.

This Titan was spotted on a Nissan dealers lot in Maine. I stopped to check out the 8 foot Fisher SnowPlow blade on this pickup.
This is the first pickup in its class that will support the use of a Heavy Duty SnowPlow blade. Further research shows that this Titan XD with the 4900 Lb front end rating could accept a heavy Duty snowplow up to 9 feet in length. Boss SnowPlows will allow up to a 9.2 FT V-Blade on this pickup chassis
This is very significant, many of the other "domestic" pickups in this class will only allow a 7 1/2 foot plow because of their lower vehicle front weight ratings. This Titan will plow more snow in less time than competitive products
Note that the Nissan Titan is manufactured in the USA in Mississippi.

For 2021, the NV Cargo is available in a streamlined array of three grade levels, two powerplants and two roof configurations – including six Standard Roof and five High Roof models total. In addition, NissanConnect® with Navigation and Mobile Partner is now standard on 3500 SV and SL grades.
And, once again, all 2021 NV Cargo models come with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty2 – featuring bumper-to-bumper limited warranty coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Exceptional Built-in Utility
The 2021 Nissan NV Cargo Van offers an array of smart functionality features. Since commercial vans must serve many functions – including acting as an office on the road or at a job site – storage and productivity items are integral to the design, rather than tacked-on afterthoughts. The result is a clean, practical and comfortable workspace for a wide variety of professions and businesses.
For example, High Roof models offer an available overhead console designed to hold work gloves, legal size binders, safety glasses and system books. The available lockable center console (removable) fits hanging files and laptop computers and includes a computer or mobile phone charging point, as well as a lid that slides forward to provide a more usable work surface. The available storage drawer under the driver's seat is ideal for storing paperwork, tools or other items that require quick access.
Along with being conceived as a "mobile office," the Nissan NV Cargo is designed to function as a "mobile workshop" – thanks to its wide door openings and simple, flexible cargo area layout with a long, wide cargo floor, square-top wheel well housings and nearly vertical sidewalls. The NV Cargo offers room between the wheelhouses to accommodate standard plywood or drywall sheets or pallets. A range of cargo area tie-down rings, along with ample cargo area lighting, further enhances the NV Cargo's utility.
Along with maximizing cargo space, the NV Cargo is designed to accommodate aftermarket customization and modifications with 57 interior reinforced integrated attachment points for installation of cargo customization equipment – requiring no sheet metal drilling. The nearly vertical sidewalls accommodate aftermarket storage systems without excessive modification.
The cargo area also features a full-length inner panel to help prevent cargo from denting the vehicle's outer skin (SV models). The roof attachment points are designed to accommodate installation of various ladder or utility rack systems without piercing holes in the roof, which can lead to corrosion and water leaks.
The cargo area also features standard "upfitter pre-wiring" for easy access into the electrical system, wide-coverage cargo area lighting and available power outlets including available 3-prong 120V outlet in center console and D-pillar locations.
Comfortable Seating and Standing
One of the overarching goals for the NV Cargo design was to combine pickup truck-like comfort, interior amenities and drivability with a cargo van's capacity and security. The Nissan NV Cargo interior answers one of the major unmet operator needs – driver comfort and roominess. The wide front doors provide easy ingress and egress, while supportive bucket seating with extensive adjustability, large armrests and a truck-like driving position with ample legroom and foot room enhance comfort.
The available center console (removable) provides a range of integrated storage features, while the fold-down passenger seat adds worktable functionality and enhances the cab's feeling of openness.
Another major contributor to the pickup-like cab is the absence of the traditional van engine "doghouse" that intrudes into the cab due to the setback engine placement. The Nissan NV Cargo utilizes a conventional truck engine layout with out-front engine design. This not only frees up space under the instrument panel and between the seats, it also provides easy under-hood access to the entire engine for routine service and maintenance.
The NV Cargo's ample cargo area offers a 120.0-inch cargo floor length and 70.2-inch maximum cargo floor width. NV Cargo Standard Roof models offer a maximum 55.8 cargo area height, among the tallest in class. Standard Roof NV Cargo models are designed to fit in most garages or go through most car washes and fast food drive-through lanes, along with offering easier reach to access roof racks. The NV Cargo High Roof provides a maximum 76.9-inch cargo room height – enough for most users to move about the cargo area while standing up straight.
Available technology includes NissanConnect® with Navigation and Mobile Partner. The system is now standard on NV3500 SV and SL grades and features a 5.8-inch color touch screen display, Voice Recognition for audio and navigation, SiriusXM® Traffic and SiriusXM® Travel Link (3-month free trial; SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately).
A Workhorse Foundation
Cost of ownership and operation is another critical factor in the CV segment, whether for major fleet operations or individual business owners. The 2021 Nissan NV Cargo is offered in a choice of two dependable engines, starting with a 261-horsepower DOHC 24-valve 4.0-liter V6 with 281 lb-ft of torque. The engine includes Nissan's Continuous Valve Timing Control for improved efficiency and is matched with a refined, heavy-duty 5-speed automatic transmission.
The advanced 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 gasoline engine features 375 horsepower and 387 lb-ft of torque. The engine is matched with a heavy-duty 7-speed automatic transmission. The Endurance® V8 engine features four-valves per cylinder, Variable Valve Event & Lift, and Direct Injection. Throttle response is enhanced by directly controlling the intake valve, rather than using the traditional method of controlling intake with a throttle valve, and valve timing and opening with non-variable camshafts.
The Endurance® V8 engine features Direct Injection Gas (DIG™) technology, which provides better wide-open throttle performance and improved fuel economy and emissions performance (versus a non-direct-injection system) by reducing engine knock, improving combustion stability and offering precise injection control. An 11.2:1 compression ratio aids overall engine efficiency and performance and a Multi Control Valve (MCV) assists in managing the engine's thermal efficiency better than a traditional thermostat.
NV Cargo models equipped with the Endurance® V8 engine are outfitted with a 7-speed automatic, which features Adaptive Shift Control and Downshift Rev Matching.
Other standard NV Cargo equipment includes heavy-duty 4-wheel disc brakes with 14.1-inch front/14.3-inch rear rotors and 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System, engine-speed-sensitive hydraulic re-circulating ball steering system, independent front suspension with stabilizer bar, solid rear axle with leaf springs and stabilizer bar, 17-inch steel wheels and LT245/70R17 all-season tires (LT245/75R17 for 3500-series vans).
Safety systems include dual-stage supplemental front air bags, supplemental front seat-mounted side-impact air bags, roof-mounted curtain side-impact air bags with rollover sensor for front outboard occupant head protection and 3-point front seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters. Also standard is a Tire Pressure Monitoring System and Vehicle Dynamic Control.
All NV Cargo models come with America's Best Commercial Van Warranty2 – featuring bumper-to-bumper limited warranty coverage of 5 years/100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Nissan's Light Commercial Vehicle warranty was inspired in part by the stories of Nissan Commercial Vehicles experiencing remarkable longevity under real-world work circumstances with businesses.
Three Well-Equipped Models
The 2021 Nissan NV Cargo is offered in three well-equipped models – the V6-equipped NV1500; the NV2500 HD, which is offered with V6 and V8 engines; and the NV3500 HD with a standard V8 engine. All three models are available with the Standard Roof, while the High Roof body is offered in the NV2500 HD and NV3500 HD models only.
Three grade levels are available – S, SV and SL. The SV grade includes a long list of standard features, such as two additional audio speakers (four total), rear cargo mat, center console with sliding table and lockable storage (2500/3500 series only), rear sonar, 17-inch styled steel wheels and more.
The SL grade features chrome bumpers and grille, chrome-clad wheels, heated outside mirrors, 8-way power driver's seat and Vehicle Security System.
Three option packages are offered, including the Navigation Package (standard on NV3500), featuring SiriusXM® Radio (3-month free trial; SiriusXM® subscription required, sold separately) and NissanConnect with Navigation and Mobile Partner with 5.8-inch color touchscreen display. Also available are the Back Door Glass Package (all grades), and Vinyl Seat Package (S grade only) with vinyl seat upholstery.
The Nissan NV Cargo is available through a select network of authorized Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealers nationwide. For more information, please go to nissancommercialvehicles.com.

Time savings is a large part of a successful business. Keeping on track and on time is key to increasing your sales and overall gross profit. On a daily basis, there are simple things that can help you and your employees stay on track. Creating prioritized task lists for example, helps give perspective on what needs to be accomplished during the course of a day.
However, it’s also important to ensure you have the correct tools for time savings. Whether you’re a fleet owner or a sole proprietor with one van, it’s important to ensure the van equipment you have is going to help you save a couple extra minutes of your day. Below is a list of van equipment designed for company time savings:
Rear Access Partition
Increase time savings by accessing your cargo space directly from your cab, with a walk-through partition. These partitions still offer you the safety you need while on the road, but also eliminates the need for you to exit your vehicle to access your cargo.
Drop-Down Ladder Rack
Load and unload your ladder in under a minute with our Max Rack. With a single stage drop, the Max Rack lowers your ladder down to eye level, eliminating the struggle of trying to load and unload your ladder from the top of a high roof, multiple times a day. It’s an incredible time savings option and also a much safer option for your employees.
Are you looking for van equipment for delivery? If so, fold-away shelving is the quickest and most efficient way to deliver cargo of any volume. The flexible shelves can be folded up or down in multiple configurations to accommodate whatever size packages you may be carrying.
Keep your small parts organized and reduce the time spent searching for them. Partskeepers allow for small tools to be stored neatly in an easily accessible spot, with divided compartments to keep each piece separate. The partskeeper cases can also be brought directly onto the jobsite to eliminate trips back and forth to the van and increase time savings.
Don’t waste time searching through your dark cargo van for the tools you need – light up your cargo area with LED light strips. These small, inexpensive pieces of van equipment are actually a surprising time saver, especially in winter when the days get darker a lot faster.
These are just some of the van equipment products that were designed to keep you organized and help save time on this job. Like we mentioned before, time savings is key to increasing profit. In fact, we’d like to prove it to you! Check out our times saving calculator to get an idea of the annual gain that comes with saving a few moments everyday.

Navajo native brings water, solar power, learning kits to a homeland in dire need
Click here to view Fowler’s photography
SALT LAKE CITY – Nissan owner Mylo Fowler delivers fresh water and solar kits to families in need in Navajo Nation because he understands their struggle.
"I don't want a kid to have to go through the experiences that I had," says Fowler, who is from Navajo Nation, the largest Native American territory in the United States that spans throughout portions of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico. "It's amazing how not having running water or electricity can trickle down into so many other issues."
Over 30 percent of an estimated 55,000 Navajo Nation households do not have running water. Nearly just as many do not have electricity, according to the American Public Power Association. Fowler grew up in one of those households.
Looking back, he recalls a day during his freshman year of high school.
"I had just finished soccer practice, and I hadn't been able to shower for about a week-and-a-half," Fowler said. "Kids kept saying, 'Oh, you stink', or 'What do you do, put motor oil in your hair?' It just went on and on. As a kid, that sticks with you."
Fowler persevered. He credits his parents and grandmother for teaching him to "be grateful for what you have, not resentful for what you don't." Today, he is a successful and well-known nature photographer. But, as Fowler says, that just pays the bills.
Fowler sees his real job as a husband, father and humanitarian who has dedicated his life to his homeland.
A self-proclaimed truck lover, Fowler has done most of his Samaritan work behind the wheel of his 2006 Nissan Armada and 2012 Nissan TITAN, throughout some of the most rigorous landscapes in the country. Just last month, he added a new 2020 TITAN to his garage.
