This Rock Rated® Skid Row Offroad Gas Tank Skid Plate replaces the sheetmetal “skid plate” Nissan provided for your Xterra and provides far more protection as well. The sides of the skid plate are 3″ tall to make sure nothing gets poked in from either side. This skid plate is made from laser-cut 3/16″ thick steel that is CNC folded for consistent quality and fit. Then it’s finished in an environmentally-friendly, and durable, black powder coating. It attaches using the original skid plate’s hardware so no drilling is required for installation.
These skids have been tested at Rausch Creek Off Road Park here in PA, as well as in Moab, Tellico, and on other trails all over the country. These are the best skid plates you can buy for your Nissan. Another lesson learned during our off-road testing is that these skid plates help you get over obstacles by preventing your chassis cross-members from catching on whatever you’re driving over. So you not only get added protection and peace of mind, your Nissan will be more capable as well!
