Title: BlakeKat 05 Xterra New Member
Post by: Blakekat on February 07, 2013, 11:02:36 AM
Hello Guys / Gals -
My name is Blake, I live in Chandler, AZ. I have an 05 Xterra S 4x4. No mods yet except for a Double-Din and 2- 10" Subs. I am thinking about becoming a supporting member after I go to my first meet and see how it goes. Looking to meet some good new friends! Also I am ready to start modding! Planning on doing the Revtek Lift with 285s on stock rims. I like the winch mount that attaches to the stock bumper just need to figure that out. Also want to be able to mount gas/water cans to stock roof rack and attach a shovel and hi-lift. Still need to paint all my plastics and do some other minor things. Let me know if anyone else needs to paint i would love to get some help since i have not done it. Hammer also recommended i change out my radiator since i have not done that. My first question is this... i am looking for the stock xterra first aid kit? Anyone know where i can get this for a reasonable price? i am also looking for the Garmin GPS that fits the 05 Xterra i cant find it?!? Hopefully i will meet you guys soon. I wont make Tuscon so have a safe trip.

Welcome to the club! ;D

Those kit bags are a little pricey, but here's the best place I've seen to get one:
Shift Nissan Parts (http://www.shiftnissanparts.com/nissanparts/index.cfm?action=viewOEMPartDeatil&siteid=216612&partid=12824146&jointVehid=11629)
It's about $72 there, which is still $10 cheaper than CourtesyParts.com and being that Shift Parts is run by Boulder Nissan who sponsors our club there's a 5% coupon we can use that they have posted in their sponsor section.

I'm actually needing one of those myself ;D

I just bedlined my bumpers last month and I love the look. I only have a few more parts that I still want to paint like the door handles, wiper cowel, and emblems. I'm thinking of bedlining the whole roof panel too... I outta photoshop it and see what it would look like...

Anyway, glad to have you around and hope to meet you at an event sometime ;D

The xterra kit is nice but you could build or find another kit with better/more components for less.  The challenge is finding the bag to fit the area.  I have seen some guys from the new x build their own and modify the space with different mounting. If if can find the link i will post it.  Cabelas spring catalog had some huge kits for about 69.99, that was four 4 people for 1 week.  Good luck with the plastics, I am not there yet but will be soon.  oh and i forgot, welcome.

It's true, I use a $10 Craftsman tool bag for my first aid kit - it's bigger than the standard Xterra kit bag, and I was able to fill it with a much more complete set of first aid supplies for less than the $80. I have it strapped to the back of the back seat right now with bungie cords, which works, but I think it would be nice to have the stock one to fill in that space too. ;D
