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. 

- Skid plate

Since the radiator is sitting too low at Xterra this is one of the must to do modification to protect your car. What to be careful is to have one with radiator brackets. 

- Towing Points

Many people are mentioning original towing points are not strong enough. Is anyone done this modification can explain what to do what to be careful? Is front and back both needs to be changed? Last leaders lead my back towing point bent a bit and touched to the bumper. I am willing to change it with something heavy duty. 

- Kill Switch

I personally don't have one. I am just closing the traction control button when i start off roading and i haven`t had any issues so far. Many says this is essential, why? I haven`t had any difficulties so far. 

Please advise from where i can buy and fix the skid plate for my X Terra.

quick response will be highly appriciated.

Congratulations @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR for finally finding your offroad vehicle 

The first step you need check  /replace all fluids / lubes . 

the next step get your bash plate fixed 

initially you can check the engine/gear mounts and if in good condition no need to replace them right now . 
 

Look at the tires if it’s validity more than half way probably better to change them to A/T high profile tires once good for all fir the next two years average daily driving and weekly off road 

regarding specific garages I am afraid we are not promoting anything like that in here and any decent reputable garage can do the job for Xterra 

Cheers

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 :) 

 

Congratulations with your ride ! Sure you will  love it !

Hey, and welcome to the club. I love my X. There's plenty of garages that are Nissan friendly , one man's specialist is another man's cowboy  so....

I'd find a good / trustworthy garage (recommendations) and have them do a full diagnostic on it for you, they'll let you know what needs done. When I first bought mine I needed to replace the engine mounts and the spark plugs.

Next up the the skid plate, make sure you get one that protects the radiator , and then get Yoko Geo A/Ts. 

That's all you need for your X. Others add new suspension and have it lifted etc. I've never bothered with any of that and I can do anything in the sand that a modified X can.

Congrats! @ZULFIKHAR NAIYAR you definitely can go anywhere with Xterra offroad.

Cant give you names but can tell you that front skid plate should cost around 1-1.3 k for 8-10mm thickness with radiator guard. and then you are ready to bash the dunes !

      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
