2013 Xterra PRO-4X
Explanation: My rig is white. Red rig is from the Roxterra.com website, illustrating what future mods should look like.
Xterra’s Name: The Desert Rat
Color: Glacier White
Two previous owners. Acquired by Salt on April 21, 2022 at 46,818 miles.
Sliders and lift by previous owner
Refinished white sliders in black non-skid Rust-oleum bed liner paint
Roxterra molle panels on doors
Hamilton pet cargo liner (nice custom work)
Roxterra Sherpa panels for Rotopax water/gas jugs, recovery tracks, and Pelican boxes
- 4/29/2022... Robert of Roxterra fame installed my Sherpas -- with tips, hints, and entertaining stories at no extra charge.
Uniden Bearcat 980 SSB CB radio with FireStik antenna mounted on the standard rack with a muffler clamp and a straight mount like this as described by NutsGoWeee in 2012. Uniden doesn't provide a cigarette lighter option. Got the cigarette lighter power source. Seems to work just fine.
MODS IN PROGRESS
Wet Okole seat covers (black with neon green trim)... Ordered for delivery in May
GMRS radio (Midland MTX400)
- 4/28/2022... Radio arrived. Another beast: 40 watts. Again, no cigarette lighter. Watched the Youtube videos on using a fuse box as the power source. Got a multi-meter and fuse tab to do the job.
- 4/29/2022... Ordered for production and delivery in May
Maintain standard front bumper -- add winch carrier with winch
Roxterra tread board panels on the "L" brackets of the Roxterra Sherpas
Roxterra molle panels on back side windows
Rear bumper projects
- ShrockWorks rear bumper with tire rack (?)
- Rear-mounted racks for water and gas jugs (?)
- 3 six-gallon disc jugs in the spare tire well for 18 additional gallons of gas (?)
- Work table mounted to tire rack: ShrockWorks Tire Carrier Table
- Onboard air compressor on the tire rack? Probably not under the hood because the additional deep cycle battery needs to go there.
Dual batteries (standard and deep cycle) with Roxterra dual battery tray
Side-mounted awning with side panels so we don't have to move with the sun
Quick Fist mounts for long-handled tools inside hatch door
A vehicle for two different uses: A) Mobile management center for volunteer work and B) light overland trekking (no rock crawling, this is my Mon-Fri work vehicle).
- Create work space for multiple managers for church projects
- Create living space (camping) for one adult (me) and one 80 lb. German Shepherd
- Maximize fuel economy
- Minimize the hassle of reconfiguring for two different uses
