Okay, so I'm approaching 70k and thinking that I'll want to swap out my timing belt, thermostat and water pump before too long.

Vehicle: 2006 Frontier 6 cyl LE 4x4

Please confirm for me that these are the only parts that I need:

Fan & Alternator Belt ($18.56)
Nissan Parts, NISMO and Nissan Accessories - Courtesyparts.com

Water Pump Assembly ($89.43)
Nissan Parts, NISMO and Nissan Accessories - Courtesyparts.com

Thermostat ($19.86)
Nissan Parts, NISMO and Nissan Accessories - Courtesyparts.com

If there's anything wrong or missing, please let me know.

Thanks.

Ummmm, that is about all wrong, lol.

The VQ40 has a timing chain that is a pain to change. It requires breaking down the entire front half of the motor to get to it. It is simply a part that you don't touch until you have an issue (supercharger whine).

The water pump is another internal item. It also requires breaking down the front half of the motor and .... you get the picture.

The Tstat is an easy thing to do thou. I'm too lazy to click your link so I assume you have the correct part. If you want to upgrade thou, get a 350z Tstat instead. It opens a little sooner then the Frontier's.

The belt you listed is the serpentine belt. I would go and get a gatorback instead of oem. Its just cheaper and works better.

Change Your Serpentine Belt Nothing Else, The Water Pump Isnt That Hard, It Has An Access Cover In The Front Timing Cover. But Really Its A As Needed Part. If Your Asking About A Timing Belt On A Vq40 I Would Only Stick To The Serpentine Belt Replacement And Go No Deeper
