Not a fan of the 2022 frontier bumper. Albatross is right, it has a bull-bar-ish vibe to it, almost as if it's an add-on instead of replacing a part of the bumper. Now the X bumper, I am a fan of. Compared to a heftyfabworks tube bumper which is 90 pounds, 105 pounds isn't bad for a plate bumper. Makes me question how thick the steel is though. 1k price tag certainly isnt bad either. Even though I have a heftyfab rear tire carrier, I might buy this instead?
In a marketing stand-point, it does make a good amount of sense (At least to me) for Nissan to support the Xterra still. The older frontiers/Xterras are the only thing holding up Nissan's reputation in off-roading from what I see. I'd imagine a majority of decked-out Nissan rigs are older Frontier/Xterra rigs. Plus, I'm just glad to see Nissan finding a place again in the offroading world
