This is a high clearance winch bumper weld-together kit for the 1st generation (1998-2004) Nissan Xterra. It features a bolt-on design (once welded together), protected winch mount, and the best approach angle of any bumper on the market. This bumper allows you to forget about approach angle and substantially improves the offroad capability of your Nissan. It offers excellent protection from rocks, trees and animal strikes and has been kept to a weight of 102lbs through careful design work.
Unlike other bumpers on the market that only mount to the thin corrugated frame horns, this bumper uses a total of 8 bolts to solidly mount it to both the frame rail ends and the factory recovery points. This distributes impact and winching forces evenly across your frame and makes for the stiffest mounting interface of any bumper on the market. This bumper also uses a low profile design that tucks tightly to the body and slopes up directly from the end of the frame. This results in maximum ground clearance and approach angles that will let you take lines on the trail that weren’t previously possible. This bumper also has a built in lower skid plate that provides a smooth surface to slide across trail obstacles and leaves no possible way for trail debris to find its way into your vulnerable engine bay parts.
Forget the outrageous lead times of many bumper options that are measured in months. All of our bumper kits ship within 3-10 business days.
As for welding, with everything designed using CAD software and then CNC laser-cut to size, the pieces fit together perfectly and this makes for a very simple assembly process. All kits come with detailed instructions with plenty of clearly labelled diagrams that are made using cutting-edge CAD software. This bumper kit is well within the ability of a novice welder and many customers have purchased it as their very first welding project with great results! This is made possible by the clean parts fit-ups and thick material. These are two factors that make welding significantly easier. Welding is one of those skills that is easier to learn than you may think and once you can do it, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. Alternatively, many individuals buy the kits and then have a local welder assemble it for them. Even in this case, it typically ends up being less expensive than buying a pre-fabricated bumper – especially after considering the lower shipping costs of our kits vs. fully assembled bumpers.
