This kit comes as part of the Protection Package that was included as an option pkg. on the window sticker of the Xterra we purchased.

The 'package' consisting of the emergency kit, all season mats and wheel locks costs 185.00. The 4 piece rubber channeled mats are of good quality and work well(approx. $60.00 purchased separately on the net or at dealer parts dept.). The wheel locks are a good idea(approx. $25 on net or dlr parts dept). However, the emergency kit contents are of poor quality, especially the useless, cheap, thin plastic flashlight which broke the first time we tried it, and really incomplete.

You probably already have all or most of the contents of this generic kit such as jumper cables(ones included are thin gauge), reflective triangle, one phillips and one flat head screwdriver, small pliers, duct tape, battery terminal cleaner and gloves.

It is a good idea to have an emergency kit, but on the net this Nissan kit costs $50.00 or more. Build your own. It should be cheaper and you can custom fit it to your needs.

yeah, I opted out of that part, since I already had everything I needed from my last 4x4. Total waste of money in my eyes.

Mine was just tossed in the Rear Floor hatch. The first Aid kit is in the Rear door hatch.

that thing is good for minor cuts, hang nails etc. Tossed in more goodies that can be used in Auto crash or. self inflected Beer tab cuts.

Here's a tidbit...use a volt meter and check that your jumper cables work! I tried to jump a friend with mine a few weeks ago and couldn't for the life of me figure out why we were not getting any juice. Turns out mine were faulty, and seem to have a break somewhere in the line.

Luckily someone else had a pair of jumpers and those worked just fine. Complete junk!

I bought this kit on ebay and tossed everything out except for the screw drivers/duct tape/and the batt brush. Mainly jsut wanted the bag... I put in LED Maglight, plus spare batteries, 3 flares, chem lights, mutil head screw driver, pliers, visgrips, channel locks, linemens, needle noise, heavy gauge jumper cables, mechanics gloves, bigger roll of duct tape (used the original roll on Fubars window at ECXC), zip ties, electrical tape, and hose clamps. The bag, fully stocked up, fits great under the rear cargo area.
