They can be accessed even with a camper shell or tonneau cover installed. The boxes are watertight and drainable. Info: Nissan, 800/647-7261, nissanusa.com

Big Import Backside
Dynatrac introduces the ProRock 60 rear axle builder’s kit, giving ’05-’15 Toyota Tacoma owners more axle strength and ground clearance.

The U.S. made nodular iron center section offers the best in class ground clearance and houses a massive 9.75-inch ring gear that dwarfs the stock 8.0-inch factory Toyota rear axle ring gear that comes in these trucks.
