Now that I’m re-watching today, I’m unsure. The weight is about midway between the Hefty aluminum and steel. I really like my grille lightbar while offroad at night and I don’t see a place for that to go. The fog light cutouts aren’t round, and I’m not sure they’re large enough for my 3” fog lights (I also really like and want to keep). I do like the low profile though.

Makes me want Nissan to put an SUV body on it.
I want to believe resurrecting the X is why they’re coming out with accessories now, but realistically a new X would have the new front end similar to the Frontier and the bumper would probably be different.

Speaking of, I wonder how this bumper looks with a 2005-2008 Xterra because this looks like it was designed to go around the 2009+ grille.

I would imagine it would fit the 05-08 just fine. It is cut out to fit around the dip in the grill on the +09, but he mentions you have to trim that grill to fit a winch so you may not have to do it on an 05-08. I do like how close it fits to the body.

That cutout is what I mean. Since the 05-08 top part stops right there I’m wondering if there’s a gap. Or if the upper part of the 05-08 sticks out slightly farther it will look even better because it may sit right on it. Just thinking out loud. I’m excited to see more shots of it from other angles.

I need to convince somebody with a Hefty aluminum they need to “upgrade” to the Nismo bumper so I can buy their old one. In addition to the weight savings I think it’s easily the best looking.
I honestly think they modeled the Nismo one after HeftyFab. Maybe that’s why mine took soooo long. They routed it to Nismo first.
