While the 2022 Frontier has essentially been re-imagined from the ground up, the Project Overland Frontier is designed to cover even more challenging ground with added confidence and style – demonstrating its potential for customer modifications using readily available components.
The chassis has been upgraded with a NISMO Off Road Performance Suspension Kit, adjusted for +2-inch lift in front – along with SPC Front Upper Control Arms with xAxis™ sealed flex joints for increased travel. In the rear, NISMO Off Road performance shock absorbers with remote reservoirs provide improved damping and greater fade resistance. Custom NISMO Off Road rear leaf springs provide a 2-inch lift and greater load-carrying capacity and 17 x 7.5-inch NISMO Off Road AXIS wheels with 285/70-17 Maxxis RAZR MT tires complete the package.
The factory exhaust has been replaced with a full NISMO Off Road Performance Cat-Back System featuring a polished tip with laser-etched NISMO logo.
The long list of exterior modifications includes a NISMO Off Road Heavy Duty Bumper with NISMO Off Road 4-inch round driving lamps, NISMO Off Road Overlanding Bed Rack and NISMO Off Road rooftop tent. In addition, hood-mounted NISMO Off Road ditch lamp mounts with 4-inch round driving lamps, a Front Runner Slimline II Roof Rack and their Hi-Lift Jack Mount with Hi-Lift® X-TREME Jack and a pair of Roam Adventure Company 83 Liter Rugged Cases help make life off the beaten track more manageable. And filling-out the bed is a TruckVault All-Weather bed drawer system complimented by an ARB Elements Fridge mounted on a drop-down slide and an ARB Twin Air Compressor.
The Project Overland Frontier interior is highlighted by a Garmin Overlander® all-terrain GPS system, Garmin PowerSwitch™ digital switch box for electrical accessory control and a 67 Designs Device Mounting System. Finally, special overlanding specific gear includes a Dometic PLB40 Portable Lithium Battery Power Source and an Overland Solar – Bugout 130 Foldable Solar Panel.
The expanding list of new NISMO Off Road parts will be available through Nissan dealers, select NISMO retailers or via NISMOparts.nissanusa.com starting in early 2022.
Nissan Project Overland Pathfinder
As a vehicle that is family adventure-ready straight off the factory floor, this unique Project Overland Pathfinder is also perfect for home schooling – as in home on the range and learning what simple modifications owners can install to help it get farther off the beaten path.
Upgrades to the Pathfinder’s overlanding credentials are a number of special modifications, starting with a prototype NISMO Off Road 2-inch lift kit featuring custom Bilstein-sourced high-capacity monotube gas-pressurized shocks. The vehicle rides on custom 18 x 8-inch NISMO Off Road wheels mounted with 265/60R18 Maxxis RAZR AT tires.
Exterior additions include a prototype NISMO Off Road expedition roof rack, ROAM Adventure Company 83L Rugged Cases, NISMO Off Road 6-inch Driving Lights, a custom fabricated front bumper guard with Rigid 4-inch D-Series driving lamps, custom fabricated rock rails and RIGd UltraSwing™ Multi-Fit Hitch Carrier with UltraTable™. The Project Overland Pathfinder interior includes an Egoé Nestbox Camper Conversion Kit with camp kitchen and sleeping platform system.
The expanding list of new NISMO Off Road parts, many of which are debuting on the Project Overland Pathfinder, will be available through Nissan dealers, select NISMO retailers or via NISMOparts.nissanusa.com starting in early 2022.
Nissan Rebelle Rally Frontier
Coming off a sixth-place finish in the recently completed 2021 Rebelle Rally is Team Wild Grace’s NISMO Off Road-equipped 2022 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X. Co-captains Sedona Blinson and Lyn Woodward stole the show all along the nine-day, 1,200-mile trek through the Nevada and California deserts with their Frontier wrapped in the red, white and blue livery of Nissan’s famed Hardbody racers of four decades ago.
Modifications to the 2022 Frontier PRO-4X include the following Nismo Off Road parts: driving lights, performance suspension, cat-back performance exhaust and Axis wheels.
Nissan has competed in all six runnings of the women-only Rebelle Rally, which is considered one of the most demanding off-road rallies in America.
Blinson and Woodward will be talking about their Rebelle Rally experiences at the booth on Tuesday, November 2.
