This is a full wrap-around rear weld-together bumper kit for the 2nd generation (2005-2015) Nissan Xterra. This is the only wrap around rear bumper on the market that is specifically designed for the 2nd gen Nissan Xterra. Painstaking design work has been done to create a wrap around bumper that mounts to the frame is completely isolated from the vulnerable body of your Xterra. Other bumper options for the Xterra only replace the stock center section and leave the flimsy factory plastic corners in place. This leaves your Xterra’s irreplaceable rear quarter panels at the trail’s mercy. Even worse, some other ‘protection’ options mount to the body of your Xterra, which is not designed to take impacts and will cause more harm than good!
This bumper mounts entirely to the frame of your Xterra and the backside of this bumper is heavily reinforced with steel square tubing and CNC cut 3/16″ steel ribs. The result: a jack can be placed under either of the side wings of this bumper to lift the whole corner of the vehicle off of the ground without the bumper touching the body! In addition to all of this, this bumper requires absolutely no drilling or trimming or your frame or body. The installation is fully reversible. The evap system located behind the driver’s side wheel well is also completely protected with this bumper and does need to be relocated!
As far as ground clearance goes, don’t let the tall side wings fool you. This bumper has been designed to provide the absolute maximum departure angle and ground clearance without cutting into the body or frame. The rear profile of the bumper slopes inwards towards the vehicle and hugs the rear of the frame as tight as possible. This sloped profile combined with the recessed hitch receiver result in a rear end that easily slides over trail obstacles rather than hanging up on them and impeding your forward progress up the trail! Simply put, this bumper allows you to forget about departure angles and substantially improves the offroad capability of your Xterra!
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.
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.
