Nationality: Jordanian
Occupation: Civil Engineer
Vehicle: 2013 Nissan Xterra

Tell us the background story of the car…
When I was seeking for an off-roading car, I came thru all the options but I felt in love with the Nissan Xterra from the first sight.

What modifications have been made, performance and cosmetic wise?
It has an iron man suspension with 2.5” lift, with lots of camping gear and stuff for outdoor activities. In terms of performance it has a programmable computer chip from Bully Dog and throttle body spacer that increases the air flow, with lots of tactical mods that helps to have a better off-roading experience

Do you have something that you consider to be a ‘special feature’ of the car?
The infused air compressor system with air tanks located at the side steps of the car.

What were your other options before you bought this car?
I was looking to have a truck, but they often have issues with agility. So I decided to have an SUV rather than a truck.

How often do you use your car, and what activities do you take part in?
I used it during the weekends for off-roading and camping.

Are you planning any future modifications?
Yes! That’s an endless world.

What 4×4 do you dream of owning?
To me, you can’t buy a dream 4×4. Instead, I would like to make mine more aggressive and better in the future. ■
