I have the Rostra universal unit myself on my '98 and 2004 Frontiers. I have the dash mounted control pad.

Based on the control unit, that looks like the one that Autozone used to carry.

Where did you get it?

Did you install magnets? I never did, even on an automatic I'd just run it off the coil.

Ive had that on about 3 vehicles.

Btw, you need to post a P/N

N1ASS, how much trouble was the install?
do you like having the stalk controller? that's my preference, to keep from looking down.

It cost $286.09 with tax.I have drove about 100 miles and it works as good as a factory one,I am 100% happy.I just helped my friend to chase after what ever he needed it and he did all the wiring and connecting,about 3 hours it took for the install and we took our time.

do you like having the stalk controller?Yes I did,it's more like a factory one.It has 2 universals that gives you flexibility to adjust. that's my preference, to keep from looking down.
