The Nissan Xterra is rugged SUV that was introduced in 1999 and became an instant hit here in the United States. This body on frame vehicle was the first Nissan to be designed and manufactured in America which helped it gain acceptance in the off-road community that was heavily dominated by the Jeep Wrangler. The Second generation of the Xterra received a face lift, and a Pro-4X trim package that included a Rockford Fosgate sound system and a rear locker. Sadly, in 2015 the Nissan Xterra was discontinued but it’s still a popular choice for off road enthusiast.

Our customer Cory loves to take his Xterra to Ocala National Forest, Withlacoochee State forest and other off-road spots in Florida. With the amount of time spent off the pavement he wanted to add LED ditch lights to his Nissan Xterra to help guide him down those dark forest trails at night.

Why buy these LED Ditch Light for your Nissan

The Nissan Xterra is a fully capable rig that will take you anywhere you want to go and that includes dark forest trails. When you’re driving on a trail that has zero light, your headlights and or light bar will shine brightly ahead of you illuminating any obstacles in your way, but what happens when you go to make a turn?

With your Off-Road lights pointed directly in front of your Nissan it is very difficult to see to the right or to the left of the vehicle until after you have made a turn. So having the ability to see where you are turning on those tight trails would be the number one benefit.
