We have some big changes coming up very soon.
1st we are expanding our staff and have hired another Fabricator with over 25 years of experience in the field. We have made this decision to help get our products built and shipped much sooner. As many of you know, we have made huge strides in getting many of our products to the customer must faster than even a year ago. Most of the time skid plates are shipping out same week as they are ordered. Sliders are within just a few weeks now. Our delay has still been with our bumpers. As hard as we have tried we just can't seem to get ahead.
We have made some big design changes in the past few months on our rear bumper design including a much stronger hinge for the swing outs and various other options that aren't currently listed on our website. Please bear with us as we are trying to update the website as quickly as possible.
The front bumper has been a point of frustration for us. The design was built as a custom bumper and was never originally intended to be mass produced. As such, we have had a very difficult time building them in a timely manner as they are incredibly complex in their design. The good news is that this is soon to be a problem of the past. The Front bumper for the xterra has been completely redesigned from the mounting brackets up. The new design will also eliminate the need for us to have 2 different designs of radiator skid plates. The new design is much stronger! Hang your xterra from our bumper!! It will hold!! The design was built to mass produce which will help us to decrease lead times. There will be a couple of grill guard options but we will be discontinuing the grey powder coating. If you currently have an order in for the old front bumper design we are allowing for you to call and change to the new design if you would prefer it but do so soon!
The new bumper design will be in full production in about a week! We just finished the design prototype today!!!

The new design features 3/8" main structure that is directly bolted to the new frame mounts and has integrated shackle mounts as well as the main structure for the grill guard. The bumper body is built from 3/16" A36 grade steel and all joints are fully welded in and out. 1/4" frame and winch mounts. This bumper will accept most non-integrated solenoid winches. The 1 3/4" x.120wall center tube in the grill guard is actually radiused to match the hood line. The outer head light guards are 1 1/2"x .120 wall tubing.
Speaking of winches... We will be offering many additional products on our site within a couple of weeks including winches from Warn, Mile Marker, Bull Dog, and many more. Also our off road light selection will increase as well as several other products.
Please be patient through this transition as it will take some time to update the website.
