The profile of this bumper has been designed with maximum ground clearance and approach angles put first. The bumper sits as high and tight to the front of the 3rd generation (2022+) Nissan Frontier as possible, while the angled lower faces will smoothly slide over obstacles and ensure you do not get hung up on the trail. The side wings of this bumper wrap around to the front wheel wells and tie directly into the main frame mounting plates for true offroad protection. These side wings will take a serious hit without flexing or deflecting into the vehicle body. We know that most Nissan Frontier owners want to run oversized tires and more aggressive wheel offsets. This can create interference issues with the stock front bumper. We have thought ahead and specifically designed these bumper side wings to easily clear 35″ tires. This bumper uses a total of 8 factory mounting points to solidly mount it to the frame. 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 is also available with an optional lower skid plate that provides a smooth surface to slide across trail obstacles and protects your vulnerable engine bay parts. This skid plate is fully CNC-bent into shape and only requires two very small 1″ long welds to complete it.
The main section of this bumper is also CNC-bent out of a single piece of 3/16″ P&O Steel. This greatly reduces the amount of welding and grinding required by you and makes for a cleaner finished product. If you are paying to have the bumper assembled by a welding shop, this significantly lowers the cost.
We finished this bumper off with a 30″ single row light bar mount, two integrated light buckets for surface mount LED pod lights (custom light cut outs available by request), an integrated winch mount to accept all standard 8-12k lb winches with removable solenoids, and heavy duty 9/16″ recovery points that are placed directly in line with the Nissan Frontier frame to eliminate any leveraging effects. These recovery points are formed by laser cut steel plates that pass through the bumper shell and tie directly into the Nissan Frontier frame as part of the bumper’s main mounting brackets. The recovery points then get welded to the in and outside of the bumper shell. These factors all combine to form recovery points that minimize stress on your Nissan Frontier frame and provide reliable recoveries of heavily loaded vehicles in the worst of offroad situations. The low profile design has resulted in very reasonable weights of 109lbs for the steel bumper and 54lbs for the aluminum version. Considering that this bumper replaces your factory bumper and associated components, the resulting weight increase to your Nissan Frontier is surprisingly minimal. In fact, if you look at the last picture on this page, you can see the amount of factory plastic and other nonsense that gets removed. We weighed all of these components and found they added up to a total of 69lbs! This means that our steel bumper only increases your Frontier’s weight by 40lbs and our aluminum bumper version actually results in a weight loss of 15lbs! This reduces added stress on your vehicle, maintains precious payload capacity, and allows you to keep your factory suspension if desired.
Don’t want to lose your factory parking sensor or Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) systems? No problem. This bumper kit comes standard with a bracket to relocate your Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) system to behind the vehicle’s grill. Very detailed step by step instructions for this relocation are included. The factory location for this sensor is very vulnerable during offroad driving, so we instead move it to behind the grill where its safe and protected by the bumper. By request, this bumper can also be ordered with CNC-cut ports for each of the 4 factory parking sensors as well as internal routing ports for the factory wiring harness to pass through without any modification or extensions required (Please email us or put a comment in your order notes section to receive this option). Simply pop the sensors into this replacement bumper, route the factory harness through the internal ports, and plug it back into the vehicle. The factory wiring harness is easily removed from the stock bumper and transferred to the Coastal Offroad bumper. This allow you to wire in our LED driving lights and your factory parking sensors right into the Coastal Offroad bumper using the factory wiring harness. When removing the Coastal Offroad bumper from the vehicle, all wiring is then conveniently disconnected all at once via the factory plugs located behind the vehicle grill.
