Chapter II : JGC .... we my wife and I had a dinner outside today and while in the way ( I am driving ) she asked me : did you adjust the side mirrors ?! .. I said Yes how did you know ? . She said : because I noticed that I don’t need to twist my head to watch the traffic in the mirror ( I also have this bad habit when I am driven by someone , keep watching the passenger side mirror 🤪) .i said I am glad you noticed it will be even better when you are driving . ... regarding the flat left driver side mirror needed to be adjusted slightly differently as the image is real and the coming car looks bigger consequently . Adjusted till I got the full panoramic view through the rear and side mirrors and bye bye for head forwarding, neck twisting and all theses thing that at least I and many others I believe were experiencing to compensate elimination or reducing the damn blind spot. ... no spots any more .... on the way back we switched seats and saved for her driver position 2 with the new mirror adjustment as well . 

wish you all good day 

cheers 😎👍🚙

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.

I’m just a bit afraid for you plate, it might fall... Maybe better to put it on the upper part, just below the grill.  About the kill switch, even if you don’t feel the need of it now in Dubai du

Problem with Xterra when i adjust my seating position(I am driving near to the steering wheel) my left mirror is not turning out as much as i need it to turn. I am always having blind spot issue with Xterra. My Jeeps was ok for that.

Actually I believe the other way around the more you slide your seat toward steering wheel the less need for turning you side mirror according to the video . For me I am having my seat max slide back and I put max the mirror can be adjusted 😉

Summary of mods of my X :

1. bash / skid plate to protect the radiator 

2. High profile A/T tires 

( both done before My very first drive with Carnity )

3 . Finally today I got my ABS kill switch installed and tested

4. Stock tow hooks still in good condition , possibly after a few tug/ pull here and there ... will be needing a replacement later with either fabricated or a genuine good quality ones.
 

last but not the least ( not considered off road specific ) .. Side mirrors Correct adjustment in my all vehicles ( no blind spots ) .

cheers

Xterra has a weak rear tow hook... spending another 50 to 100dhs will fix this problem.

Suppose to be straight and it has bend while recovering. This is extremely dangerous when you do extreme recoveries. 

@Asif Hussain looks like I will edit my X mods summary soon 😄

Hi All,

Very useful post. Could see all the Xterra gang is on this thread..

I finally ended up getting an XTerra 2014 OR version recently. With all the above mods being suggested, can you also please suggest which garages specialize in Xterra modifications or checks.

I'm sifting through some of the old threads to gain more info on this. The one I bought does have a squeaking sound and I'm not sure if I need to get the shocks replaced. 

Also, read in some thread by @Foxtrot Oscar that engine and gear mounts need to be checked for used Xterra's - good pointer, thanks.

Is there any garage/specialist in Dubai where I could get things checked out as well as eventually getting the required mods mentioned here?

Thanks in advance..

Thank you again  @sertac@M.Seidam@Rizwanm2@Zixuan Huang - Charlie for all your recent feedbacks :)

      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.

      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
