It turns out that there is a huge open space above the bumper once you remove the plastic guard piece. It wouldn't be blocking air flow to the radiator, either (and don't forget, there's a fan on the latter anyway). Just have to come up with some creative way to mount the brick, run the cable, etc. However, there's plenty of space if Nissan wanted to have something permanently installed and then just have a male connector accessible to an extension cord.
