So I just picked up my Murano from a local motorsports shop that built some custom skid plates to protect the engine bay and fuel tank & rear diff areas. I'll have lots of pics and info on the project soon, but the more pressing question is this:

Where should I put these on the Mo; just above the rear wheel arch or higher up on the D pillar? :D

I'd put them in a scrapbook and go drive it...

My GF and I are off on a road trip to New Mexico after Christmas, so cool pics to come in due course...
I'm from northern New Mexico. Where are you going? I can give you some good tips on restaurants in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. I moved to San Diego four years ago.

Have fun on your roadtrip!

Skidplates or not, the MO is not an offroad vehicle, with its limited ground clerance and slip and slide AWD.

Looks like I'm shifting plans. I just got laid off (my company is shutting down), so instead of going north up to Sante Fe I'm going to go east to New York via Key West :D .

Sorry to hear about that Carl... I hope your next job is even better!

Seriously about the sticker, I think slapping them all over an awesome looking vehicle like the Murano, cheapens the look. What I think would be cool, would be a book that details the mods you've made and trips, that you could keep in the passenger door for visitors. The sticker in there could head up a section on that.

I think some stickers, if not too big and done in a subtle manner, add to the true performance nature. Like some text on the side window perhaps....;)

Aw, I thought the pics showing the Mo all dirty on the trail with the Nismo sticker & skidplates and the like looked good. Yes, more rugged than Nissan's Marketing department ever intended, but good none the less :4: .

OK, I like the placement of that somehow and never thought of it as a location!

Let's see, if someone could figure out a real 4WD system for the Murano, it could be fun!

The sticker looks good, especially in that terrain. I half expected to see a camel in the background. :2:
