Makes sense. I was just reading up on a thread concerning the ones on the rear of the frame when the rear bumper is removed. Luckily, none of mine broke when I took mine off.

Upgraded the little guy's seat. This thing is HUGE. I can't believe how expensive car seats are (we bought two of these), but they ought to last a while.

Nutserts are great for some applications. They can’t take much torque before they give up and start to spin. When they work they’re wonderful.

Great seat. Ours have served us well. My 45# 5 year old is still using it. We fought the urge to change to forward facing as long as possible. Once we did turn it around, there was plenty of room to put it behind the passenger seat.

But, if I put it in and add tack welds, will it not be fairly strong?

Just installed a new stereo, speakers, and tweeters. Working on installing a subwoofer and back-up camera. Decided to put the sub and amp (I've got a low profile powered woofer) in the pop-up compartment in the back, as I realized that I open that about once or twice every two years, and don't want to give up any cargo/sleeping space in the back. The struggle I'm running into right now is running the power from the battery. I'm using insulated 8 gauge wire. The options I've considered are:

1) Running it under the Xterra, using one of the grommet holes in the cargo area to get it into the vehicle. Bolt it to the undercarriage somewhere out of the way, avoiding the exhaust, and keeping it from places it may get pinched.
2) Running it through the frame under the Xterra... not sure how to get it in one hole and out the other, spent 45 minutes with fish tape going nowhere today.
3) Running it inside the Xterra. Need to find where to get it through the firewall on the passenger side, and how to get it under the carpet/behind the molding.
4) Waving a magic wand at the amp, hoping that will somehow power it.

Anyone who has done this on an '05, tips would be appreciated!!!

I installed a backup camera in a license plate frame and routed the cable up into the rear floor storage area and then underneath the lower driver's side door trims to the dashboard. That is the route one of the existing wiring looms takes. I can't help you get through the firewall, but the rest of the routing is easy. I assume it's the same on the passenger side for a more direct route to the battery depending on where you find a hole through the firewall. Details here:

If you're willing to go in the driver's side there's a large rubber grommet you can make a slice through behind the brake booster. I did this for a fuse block/ham radio install.

This is how the power wire for my amplifier is run into my cab as well. And it’s huge #2 welding lead wire!
