Nissan Truck Platform Breif History
A few fun facts: The platform code is called the D41US, Similar to how the D21 trucks of the early 90’s progressed into the D22, the D40 truck has progressed to the D41US. This is an american only truck whereas the D23 platform was the next step from the D22 sereis which was only released outside of north america, a few years ago.
Transform your 2022 Nissan Frontier Off Road Capabilities
Make no mistake, there are some similarities between the platforms, but with some key notable upgrades to the D41 compared to the D40. These differences are key to understanding what will be required for the big key upgrades to really make these trucks perform in the dirt and on the trail. At first look, upgrades seem simple but as you look deeper you start to see a twist to many things. I can’t divulge too much information here, but you can expect Rugged Rocks to be a big player with offering many key off road upgrades to this new 3rd generation Frontier.
Just a few months ago, We released the 4-Leaf Add-a-leaf packs for the 2005+ Nissan Xterra. These add-a-leaf packs are a great alternative to other add-a-leafs on the market due to using more material. It’s simply a longer lasting solution with 4 leafs and gives 2.5″ of lift height. It’s also much more cost effective than complete new leaf packs.
Since the release for the Xterras, we have gotten a handful of enquiries asking about a similar solution for the 2005+ Frontiers (D40). These enquiries have come in all forms of social media and has not been easy to keep track of. If you are interested in knowing the progress of this product and want to get notified when they are released, please submit your e-mail address in the form below (don’t forget to click the link in the verification email). I should also mention that those that submit their e-mail below will also get notified about introductory pricing which should be about $240 for the pair. The price will then go up to about $280.
The future of this product will be based upon the number of people we have sign up over the next few weeks, and everyone that submits their e-mail will be notified of what we decide to do. If we decide to move forward then it will be about another 8 – 10 weeks for production.

The relationship between vehicle weight and suspension is where Old Man Emu gets its name – the emu is a large Australian flightless bird, when it runs, its powerful legs absorb most of the impact, allowing it to move over all types of terrain while its body remains virtually motionless. This is what Old Man Emu strives to achieve with its range of fully integrated 4×4 shocks and suspension systems. Old Man Emu suspension systems include carefully matched spring and shock combinations engineered to improve vehicle ride, handling and control under various loads.
A single suspension lift kit system designed to suit a multitude of users simply isnt practical, as each users preferences will dictate how the vehicle is outfitted and used. Despite these differences, most aftermarket 4×4 suspension systems are only available in a single configuration, with suspension lift height often being your only option.
At OME, instead of merely offering a suspension lift kit thats little more than a compilation of parts aimed at raising your trucks height, we offer a range of tuned and matched integrated systems, each offering varying degrees of comfort, load carrying capability & control characteristics. The components are designed by ARB with an unrelenting, no compromise approach.
Shock absorbers and springs for each new vehicle start off as prototypes, and are tested and modified in a variety of terrains and with varying loads. These trials and modifications can take weeks of testing in order to ensure the best possible combination for each application.
We test and modify, test and modify and continue to do so for as long as it takes to ensure each shock and spring combination is ideally suited to a vehicle, its varying weights, the drivers suspension lift requirements and the terrain it’ll encounter..
