One of the first things you notice on a off road vehicle is the front bumper. Putting an off road bumper on your Xterra not only serves to good looks but is a crucial component to off road functionality out on the trail. A (N50) Nissan Xterra (off road front bumper will increase your approach angle allowing you to get your tires on top of a trail obstacle instead of running into it. When dropping off of ledges, or simply getting through trail obstacles, there is a high risk of your Xterra hitting the front bumper.

A new off road Nissan Xterra front bumper also has accomodations for a winch and recovery points. Both of these features are very important in the event that you get stuck out on the trail. The recovery points will allow you to attach a shackle at the end of a recovery line, to the bumper. This way another vehicle can apply tension to the line in an attempt to dislodge the vehicle. 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.
