What up every body!? I have been a Frontierer for about 2 months now. I have a 2016 pro4x - grey - manual transmission. As I just don't feel right driving a truck (or any car) in automatic. I like my truck so far; however I got a question for all you newer frontier peeps or anyone really. I know this truck didn't have a huge aftermarket following before I bought it. It seems like its even less for the newer frontiers. A little background on me, I change my cars out a little too much, but my last car I came from was a 17 WRX. Im not one to rice out my cars or anything with all aftermarket parts possible, but its nice to have options. Even for my 17 WRX I had a dedicated website I can go check stuff out. Do we not have a dedicated online vendor that specializes in our vehicles? Anyone know where I can find 2016 frontier head lights, tail lights, specifically? Im starting to think it doesn't exists and thats a little depressing. haha :crying:

Amazon and eBay sell both OEM replacements and aftermarket headlamps, fog lamps, and taillamps.

Not as many options like Jeeps and Taco's BUT I when you do your research.... the options we have our for what its made for.... Off-roading and work!.... Check out White Knuckle, Hefty Fab, ARB, and others for off roading stuff... if you want simple stuff just go to any auto aftermarket supplier.... autoanything, CarID, and such....

OP are you asking about the entire headlight enclosure???
If so...
If I re-call correctly...
They do or did mass produce/make those fancy looking front headlights enclosures for a 2008 or older Frontiers (in 2009 Nissan changed the headlights and grill).
For years 2008 or older example:
For 05-08 Nissan Frontier 05-07 Pathfinder Black LED Halo Projector Headlights | eBay
And from I have the heard the above ebay ones (although they look cool) throw less light than the stock Nissan headlights.

About your only option for 2009 or newer is some sort of retro-fit.
Here is an example:
https://www.hidprojectors.com/products/05-nissan-frontier-headlights-with-monster-shrouds

There have been some mixed reviews on the aftermarket taillights.
Here is an old thread from 2007
http://www.clubfrontier.org/forums/f10/led-crystal-clear-tail-lights-10449/

Just keep in mind some of the online sellers list headlights that work for 2005 thru current model frontiers when in reality they will only work on 2005 thru 2008 frontiers...again because the grill head light change in model year 2009.

Thanks for all the reply's, I dont mind the retrofit headlights. They are on the pricey side however at least we have that, much better than getting the low quality halo type projectors. I hate to keep the car stock even though its far from stock as i bout it with a lift and a few other things I have added so far. Based on what has been said here and what i have read, this ebay seller is claiming this taillight : https://www.ebay.com/itm/400660267434 will fit 05-17 is that a lie? I dont want to purchase it and have to go through the hassle of a return. Any for sure LED tail lights for the 16's?

Taillights are the same, 2005-now.

The Frontier itself hasn't changed much since it first came out in 2005. The only "semi-major refresh" happened in 2009+ models, and only at the front end: there was a small change to the headlamps, hood, grill, and front bumper. Inside there was a small refresh on the center upper dash area. Aside from what I just mentioned, the rest of the truck is basically the same.
