Item: Bash Plates Suitable for Nissan Navara D40 RX, ST, ST-X STX550 Thai & Spanish Build 2005 – 2015
Quick Front Plate Guide: Please check that your vehicle still has the front mounting holes, these are the most forward holes for mounting the plates on the vehicle. Please see the third pic, they will either be 460mmx430mm 0r 445mmx480mm apart. 2005 to 2010 will be 460mm , 2011 to 2012 may be either 460mm or 445mm and 2013 to 2015 models will be 445mm. If the factory plate is still attached our plates will fit. Rest of the fitting guide in description.
*Does fit with X-rox bar but the bullbar cross member must be spaced back 25mm to 30mm.
.Our bash plates to suit D40 will fit all most from 2005 to 2015. There is 2 different front plates depending models so please measure you front mounting holes.
The plates have been designed to replace the front factory plate and cover underneath the motor from the cross member the factory front plate finishes to the the second cross member towards the rear of the vehicle. The Transmission Plate will bolt to the sump plate and follow through to the next cross member with a 300mm over hang. We always recommend buying the 3 piece set but unfortunately some Bull Bars remove the front plate top mounting brackets.
*Before you purchase a Bull Bar check it does not remove the front plate top mounting brackets!!
Fitting Instructions of the second plate: Due to the 2 build locations and the models Rx, St, St-x and 550 there are different ways to mount.
A) The second cross member has welded nuts in side and the plate can be easily bolted on
B) The second cross member has holes going all the way through, we supply long bolts, washers and nuts.
C) The second cross member only has holes in the base of it. You will have to drill all the way through and we supply the long bolts, washers and nuts. (seek professional help if you are not confident to do this)
Stainless Steel is a far superior metal that endure a lot more hits and beach driving. The most popular setup is 3mm stainless, these plates are great for general 4wding, will last you for years and give you piece of mind.
