NN-0002: Front Skid Plate for Nissan Xterra and Frontier (2000-2004)

Our Rock Rated® Front Skid Plate protects your front differential and provides easy access to your engine oil filter while preventing damage from rocks and other offroad obstacles.

Material: Made of 3/16 inch thick steel
Finish: Semi-Gloss Black Powder Coat
Hardware: All Grade 5 zinc plated hardware is included
Origin: Made in USA

Please Note the following: 

  • The front skid plate works just fine with stock front bumpers or ARB Bull Bars, but does not fit with Calmini front bumpers.
  • The front skid plate and the engine/trans skid plate are available separately. However, the front skid plate requires our engine/trans skid plate (Part# NN-0004) or it can't be installed.


These skid plates cover your front differential and provide easy access to your engine oil filter. They are made from laser-cut 3/16″ thick steel that is CNC folded for consistent quality and fit. Then they’re finished in an environmentally-friendly, and durable, black powder coating. They mount solidly to the truck’s frame and are specially designed for easy bolt-up installation with minimal drilling. Nissan didn’t provide enough mounting holes so you’ll have to make a couple.

These skids have been tested at Rausch Creek Off Road Park here in PA, as well as in Moab, Tellico, and on other trails all over the country. These are the best skid plates you can buy for your Nissan. Another lesson learned during our off-road testing is that these skid plates help you get over obstacles by preventing your chassis cross-members from catching on whatever you’re driving over. So you not only get added protection and peace of mind, your Nissan will be more capable as well!
