Welcome back. We’ve been hard at work on our 2009 Nissan Maxima body parts and have some new photos to share.
Here’s a look at the final pieces created in the modeling shop, before the molds are made. This is where the fine tuning comes in, this part of the process takes a designer with a keen eye for detail and a steady hand.
During this session some final changes and tweaks were made to the pieces.
The next step is creating the molds to make the parts. After that we’ll have final fitment checks on first production pieces. Stay Tuned – next time we’ll look at the 2009 Maxima performance part development and check in on some of our other projects.

We thought it would be interesting to show everyone out there what goes on behind the scenes during the big SEMA push here at STILLEN. The first project car we’re going to reveal is our 2009 STILLEN Maxima. As usual we’ve got a comprehensive build planned which addresses all of the major systems on the car including power, suspension, braking, appearance and entertainment.
The first and one of the most time consuming parts of the process is creating appearance upgrades in our durable STILLEN urethane.
These pictures are coming direct from our on-site body styling studio where some of our most talented and trusted employees begin the mock-up process for our STILLEN body parts.
The process begins with a concept sketch, that is then transferred onto the car and shaped by hand. This step is where the design actually comes to realization on the vehicle. Once the sculpting is complete, we’ll post an update here, so stay tuned!

Rounding out the 2007-2008 Altima Sedan body components is the two rear treatments offered by STILLEN. The STILLEN Rear Wing (Spoiler) is a very sleek, subtle and clean way to add an aggressive look to the back of the Altima. The STILLEN Roof Wing complements both the STILLEN Rear Wing and the OEM wing alike, and adds a unique touch to the car that you can’t help but notice.
As with most STILLEN items, these pieces are made of high-quality urethane, have a limited lifetime warranty for a long life and OEM quality. The warranty ensures workmanship of the material against cracking or breakage for as long as you own the vehicle. These pieces come raw urethane, ready for priming and painting.
Step by step instructions are included, and 3M tape is pre-installed, making installation of these pieces extremely easy.
Special thanks goes out to NICO members Jose3.5 again for use of his vehicle for the Rear Wing, and to ursus for getting us pictures back on the Roof Wing.

We have released the STILLEN 2007-2008 Altima Sedan Front Lip Spoiler, as well as the Side Skirts (Rockers). The Lip Spoiler is an alternative to the complete Front Fascia which is also available. The Side Skirts are a perfect match to either front treatment choice.
Altima Sedan Lip Spoiler & Side Skirts
These are constructed from high-quality urethane, ensuring OEM quality and a long life. They feature a limited lifetime warranty against breakage or cracking during normal use for as long as you own your vehicle. These pieces are raw urethane, ready to be primed and painted to match your vehicle.
Installation is a breeze, with 3M tape pre-installed on the pieces, hardware included, and detailed step by step instructions (lip spoiler / side skirts). The side skirts will replace the OEM pieces, and the lip spoiler is a direct fitment over the OEM bumper cover.
Special thanks goes to NICO member Jose3.5 for coming down on several occasions for final fitments, and allowing us to get some preliminary photography. Look for a vehicle to hit the photo studio soon for some more detailed pictures.

Working closely with members at the popular forum cherokeesrt8.com, we developed a unique front headlight accent which covers a portion of the stock headlights, framing the circular nature of the Jeep Grand Cherokee headlight design. These covers fit on 05-07 Grand Cherokee and 06-07 SRT-8 models.
Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlight Accents
These headlight covers are constructed of solid urethane, designed to be painted to match the exterior vehicle color, and snugly fitting with OEM quality. For added security on installation, 3M tape comes pre-installed on the pieces, securing the accents to the vehicle’s headlights.
Installation is extremely easy, with a simple removal of the push tabs on the grille and setting aside, installing the covers, finally replacing the grille and tabs.
This is a very small, inexpensive, quick modification that has a surprisingly large effect on the styling of the Grand Cherokee, especially with the aggressive nature of the SRT-8 version.
2008 versions of the Grand Cherokee (including SRT-8) brought a change to the headlight housings, but we are almost finished with a new version to accommodate those vehicles. Look for more information on that soon.
More information and pricing for the Jeep Grand Cherokee Headlight Accents can be found at the STILLEN Headlight Accents page on the main site.
Special thanks for making their vehicles available during the designing and modeling process needs to go out to Phil (Runnin 9s) and Tamara (SRT8Girl12).
The wait is nearly over, the Altima Coupe Splitter is almost ready. Pictures of this Urethane piece can be seen below installed on STILLEN Customer and NICO Member RJDMMFL1’s clean Altima Coupe.
These splitters can be installed with or without the included stainless steel turnbuckles, but we recommend additional support via screws underneath the piece for added structural support.
The Altima Coupe splitter come painted in flat black, which provides some UV protection for the raw urethane. These pieces are done with a harder urethane than we use for our typical body components, offering additional rigidity upon installation.
Thanks for coming down RJDMMFL1, those illuminated kick plates looked very cool in person!
