I have added skid plate and proper tow hook. For kill switch, i haven't felt any difficulty with abs for traction control so far so haven't done it yet. I will see later. 

About skid plate i was very obsessed to keep the original look. I haven't found the older type of skid plate but i used uncoated aluminum and glued the plate to the original location. With this it doesn't look that odd to me.

We have a lot of Xterra users in our team. We don`t have a thread putting together all the must modifications for Xterra. Lets discuss them here to have these documented all together under one thread.

@sertac ABS kill is the first thing you should do for serious level drives. If the ABS kicks in during steep slope it will keep releasing the tires making your xterra go down without break or control.

About the kill switch, even if you don’t feel the need of it now in Dubai dunes, I would advise you to install it. I experienced exactly what @Asif Hussain mentioned in a long and steep decline in Oum al-Oush (or maybe it was Wagan?) and believe me it was really scary.

What about below mod guys.  I feel X's left side (driver side) rear view mirror is too flat and not adequately convex. Hence there is huge blindspot in the mirror.  i think a small blind spot mirror like below would give at least little bit of comfort. 

but right side mirror is ok for me.

Ok guys than next week abs kill switch is coming. 

I was till the last drive I did , Although no steep slopes , was not convinced for the necessity to kill the ABS via installing switch . However it kicked in even to the gentle breaking I felt it , instinctively downshift the gear to 2 while releasing the break paddle , controlled . If it was longer downhill and steeper non ABS breakers big reliever . I will try sort it too before next drive .

It’s not bad but please don’t let it  prevent you from the habit of over shoulder quick look 😉

I installed this one maybe two years ago but with time I realised that I wasn't using it because it takes a bit of time for your eyes to  focus/zoom on this very small mirror. Instead I just learnt to adjust my side mirror properly - there was a post on this forum maybe two years ago, I'll try to dig and find it.

Blind spot gone 🙏🏻

I tried it this morning with my X adjusted the Side mirrors And I realized that I was driving before in a very big blind spot that I created my self and only what I got  Is a neck pain! 

thats why in driving schools if you don’t first look in the rare mirror then the side you fail the test ! Honestly no one explained it properly . ( I have 3 drivers license from three diff countries 🤭). Regarding reverse parking no problem at all . To the contrary it’s a neck saving correct way . Let’s see the Grand Cherokee and with all the options in it what will do this afternoon .... to be continued 

Thank you @Emmanueland  @Gaurav

cheers👍🙏🏻🚙

      Prior to acquiring car insurance has anyone here had to deal with ESMA (Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology)?
      Today I was getting a quote from one of the well known insurance providers in Dubai, the person asked the usual questions about year, make, model, etc, and then asked if the car had been modified.  Well it seems that suspension mods are something this company is concerned about and explained that in order to get insurance I would have to get authorization from ESMA for the mods ... 🙄
      I will appreciate your comments, especially if you've gone through something similar.
      Thanks in advance to all.

      Every offroader who is regularly driving offroad and involved in recovery by pulling or tugging should inspect there tow points and tow hook regularly.
      At least once every month or after every extreme recovery to make sure they are safe to use.
      Thanks to @Barry for wonderful contact of Mathias in Car Pro garage - a seasoned welder to take up this job during Eid holidays and doing a wonderful work. Sadly Car Pro garage is closing or closed down, so if any of you need quick welding job from expert welder you can contact Mathias on ‎052 926 6714. And he is very reasonable in pricing. He charged me 200 Dhs for all 3 joints ARC welding.

      Hi All,
      I am planning to buy an Armada (2012 or 2013 model) as my daily driver + the weekend offroad vehicle with the Carnity family.
      Do notice a lot of feedback in various discussions on its sheer size and weight but does it feel much different than a LC200?
      Please also advise on the aspects I need to look out for while making the purchase.
      Look forward to your valuable inputs.
      Thank you.
      Praju

      Hi Carnity Family,
      Though I am very new to off-roading and have just started by AMAZING drives with this family, I was just wondering if it is mandatory to install skid plates on our LC 200 GXR v6 model.
      In my very limited and newbie knowledge, LC seem to have some covers underneath but I seek the professional expertise and knowledge of the Carnity family to advise.
      Look forward to hear from you!

      Hello dears
      Am eager to know how to modify my car to minimise damage possibilities, and yet keep the elegant look that suits the city
       
      Hi @Lorenzo Candelpergher I noticed that you have the new model 2020 and it looks awesome. Is it a t1? Or did you modify the bumper and added a skid? It would be amazing if you can share some advises
      Thx
