Starting with a 2019 Frontier Crew Cab SV 4x4 Midnight Edition, modifications on the Nissan Destination Frontier concentrate on enhanced ground clearance and overall body and drivetrain protection from off-trail obstacles.
First, a Nisstec 3-inch lift kit and Nitto Trail Grappler off-road tires mounted on American Racing AX201 wheels were installed, providing the overlanding-necessitated extra height and rough terrain traction.
"This special Destination Frontier is designed to do two things: first, demonstrate Frontier's durability, quality and reliability, even when traveling to remote destinations. And second, to help democratize the overlanding experience by showing a more affordable approach to the sport," said Tiago Castro, director, Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc.
A Hefty Fabworks front bumper, skid plates and rock sliders were added for an additional level of protection for the engine, transmission and body. Also added up front was a powerful WARN Industries ZEON 10-S winch, WARN Winch Roller Fairlead, and WARN Epic Winch Hook for helping negotiate extra tough situations.
A Leitner Designs bed rack, topped with a CVT Mt. Shasta rooftop tent, was added along with items such as a Dometic fridge/freezer and slider, Rhino Rack Pioneer Tray, and Baja Designs LP6 Pro lights. Helping keep the dirt and mud where it belongs – off the carpet – are WeatherTech floor mats.
Overlanding is an exciting form of outdoor adventuring taking participants into sometimes-extreme terrain and climate conditions – often thought to be only for ultra-expensive modified trucks and SUVs. All in, the Destination Frontier one-off truck can be created for around $40,002.
