The 20-inch smooth wheels are wrapped in whitewall tires and polished stainless steel center caps.

In addition, the off-road racer gets a wider track and lower wishbones, front steering knuckles, wheel centers and rear axle made of titanium. For damping, there are Bilstein integrated shocks and adjustable height external reservoirs. In addition, Nissan uses a custom-made leaf spring package in the rear. To make room for the new chassis components, the Frontier has received a carbon fiber width package.
