Compared to a stock bumper with hitch receiver, this bumper significantly increases ground clearance and departure angle by moving the hitch receiver up into the bumper shell and then recessing it for a smooth surface that will easily slide over trail obstacles and steep ditch crossings. This substantially increases the offroad capability of your Xterra. It offers excellent protection from rocks, trees and animal strikes and has been kept to a weight of 65lbs through careful design work.
The swing out tire carrier comes in either a single or dual sided configuration and is built to accept a tire up to 35″ in diameter. Both carriers include mounting brackets for a hilift jack and other recovery items. The dual swing out includes the hilift mount as well as a lockable jerry can holder designed to fit two 20L NATO style jerry cans. These carriers feature heavy duty double heim joint hinges, 2000lb toggle latches, T-handle spring pins, and a replaceable UHMW catch pad that provides secure, rattle free operation. The heim joints in conjunction with the toggle latch provide tons of adjustability, allowing for easy assembly and guaranteed alignment of the carrier latch. The single swing out add-on weighs 34lbs and the dual swing out add-on with gas can holder weighs 77lbs.
