Keeping Your Nissan Frontier Bumper in Showroom-Quality Finish

Maintaining your car bumper's good-working condition doesn't have to be tedious. All you need is the right working knowledge and the commitment to making your bumper look as good as new. Despite being one of the easy-to-maintain external components of your pickup, it still needs to be checked every now and then. To help you keep it in good shape, here are some quick guides on caring for your Nissan Frontier bumper:

  • Fix scratches and dents at first sight.

Aside from being unsightly, a damaged bumper also offers reduced protection against front-end accidents. That is why you should regularly inspect your vehicle's bumper. Once you discover scratches and dents in the bumper, the first thing you should do is to try to fix them yourself. Doing so saves you tons of money that you can incur if you bring it to a car repair shop. However, if the damage is too big for you to repair, then you can opt to bring it to a nearby car body shop.

  • Place a bumper protector on the edge of your pickup's bumper.

Being exposed to road dirt and debris, your car's bumper receives a great deal of stress while you're driving. One way to boost its strength and extend its service lifespan is by getting a bumper protector. This sticks on top of your bumper, giving it added protection against scratches and minor dents.

Bumper protectors usually come in a set of four—two strips for your front bumper and another two for the rear bumper. They are also offered in a range of colors and styles, so you can choose one that matches your vehicle's overall look.

  • Use a paint protection film to defend the bumper's paint.

Aftermarket paint protection films (PPFs) give your vehicle superb scratch and stain resistance. This way, the paint on your car's bumper is kept intact. Some PPFs even come with a self-healing technology that makes minor scratches hardly visible. Another interesting fact is that PPFs can be applied on various components of your vehicle—bumpers, rocker panels, hoods, trunks, etc. So when you buy a pack for your bumper, you can also use the excess films for other parts of your car.

  • Three Things to Consider for an Easy Nissan Frontier Bumper Installation

    Your car's bumper may not be among the most frequently replaced car parts, but it's also prone to damage and aging. When the bumper gets damaged or worn out, you need to prepare the tools essential for replacement. Whatever the bumper may require, having sufficient know-how on the best practices in bumper installation would be of great help. Here are some tips you should consider when installing a Nissan Frontier bumper:

    Tip #1: Keep all removable parts in a safe place.

    If you look closely, your car's bumper comes with screws, bolts, and clips. To install a new bumper, you will have to remove the stock bumper first, and this entails detachment of the little parts such as the screws and clips. Loosen one of these screws and you're sure to have a hard time getting your new bumper into place. This is why it's crucial that you set aside the tiny removable parts in a safe area.

    Tip #2: Disconnect nearby electric components before the installation.

    Before beginning the installation procedure, it's ideal to detach electrical parts, such as the fog lights to prevent damaging them as you remove and reinstall the bumper. Make sure that you move around the wires with utmost care, and remember that you have to return the lights to their exact location once done with the installation.

    Tip #3: Test-fit the replacement bumper to check for alignment.

    Not all bumpers come in the exact measure and specifications similar to your stock Nissan Frontier bumper. After unboxing the new bumper, do a trial fit to see if it will snugly fit into place. If necessary, make some adjustments to the replacement bumper by sanding or grinding on specific areas.

    Trimming and cutting the bumper may also be required if it had been damaged in an accident or had been modified before. Use extreme caution when trimming and cutting the bumper during the trial fit. Remember that too much sanding and trimming can also make the component unfit for your vehicle. Apply just the right modification needed to get the part properly installed in your car.
