PhullD Build Page - Planning the Trip out West

Intro Comments: I wanted something more capable than a car that wouldn't fall apart driving on our deteriorating roads, especially in the Winter. I always enjoyed going off-road on FSR's or deactivated roads when I was working in Northern B.C. and decided I was going to get back into it with this Xterra. The mods have happened a LOT faster than I was prepared for haha!

Installed a Diode Dynamics LED kit last winter (the kit with 4 LED strips) because I found the X to be really dark at night, in particular the console box.

I really like your hatch pouch. If I hadn't just mounted my axe and shovel there I'd be copying that!

I hear you, space is at a premium in the X.

Here are some of the pics for the BlackVue 650GW 2CH dashcam I installed. Overall I would rate all the hardware and software for install and the power module an 8/10. The camera quality for regular roads with normal lighting is good, in variable lighting just ok (like in forests) and at night dependent on the amount of ambient light nearby.

The tap for power was an unused fuse spot.


Mounted it to the back of the glovebox. It looks a bit messy, but everything is bundled and tied, there is just so much extra wire, you could mount this in many places.


Power Magic module.


Some of the settings you can tinker with.


Front camera.


Diver's view.


Rear camera.



As you can see the wire was fed up through the headliner so it is all hidden. It was a good hour long job feeding it through. In some places the anxiety of breaking the clips was definitely there particularly at the pillar columns where they meet the headliner, and you need to be careful how you feed the wire in the front pillar due to airbags.
