One of the first things you notice on a off road vehicle is the front bumper.

Installing a winch into your (N50) Nissan Xterra off road bumper will allow you to be more self sufficient in dislodging your own vehicle without another vehicles assistance. This is done by attaching the winchline to a solid anchor point such as a large boulder, or tree and spooling the winching line.
