I saw that vid too. I was currently saving for a different bumper but I think this is the one for me. I can't imagine the price would be 1k but I have seen the frontier version is 1300 which isn't too bad and that fact it will probably ship to a local dealer for free then its very reasonable.

Front bumper on the new frontier is really weird looking to me. It almost feels like an add-on... more bull bar-ish than a full on bumper swap with how it kind of just wraps around the bottom and doesn't really do much in terms of getting you more clearance.

Kind of funny/ironic/sad that they want to model the bumper on the Xterra. The car is nearly 7 years out of production now... but it still has enough to demand to make it worthwhile to produce a new part. Why o' why Nissan can't you give us a replacement......

They're also supposed to put out a 2" suspension lift kit: Among the accessories is an off-road suspension kit which increases the ride height by up to 2 inches (51 mm). Nismo didn’t go into specifics, but said the kit includes monotube shocks that allow for additional wheel travel and feature remote reservoir technology in the rear. The company also said the suspension has been “specifically tuned for the additional weight of typical overlanding equipment such as camping gear, heavy-duty bumpers and larger, heavier tires.”

I saw a different bumper that I like a lot more...

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

The "only replace the center section" front bumpers are VERY popular among 4Runners and some Tacomas.
Though, for what I want, I prefer to get rid of the plastic at the corners, and have higher clearance all around.
