#228223 - 16/03/07 06:28 AM DIY utility mat for my Xterra
Anonymous
Unregistered


This isn't a big deal, and probably doesn't even count as a "mod", but I was happy with how it turned out.

I wanted a utility mat for the back of my Xterra. I haul a lot of stuff and was getting tired of constantly cleaning the carpet back there.

I found a 3'x5' utility mat at Target for $25. Nice, thick rubber too. I laid my OEM carpet mat down on top of it, and starting cutting. Fits perfectly! I even cut slits in it for the tie-downs to pass through.

Thanks! If you choose to do this, beware; your Xterra will have a slight "rubbery" smell the next morning smile

It would have been pretty funny if you didn't lay that piece of wood down before you cut it. then you would have had some white carpet to fit in your trunk too...for those fancy nights out.

Pretty sure had I done that, I'd be calling my trunk the "living room", cause my fiance would have kicked me out of the house and I'd be living in the X smile

Nice idea!!
I have that rubber cargo mat and never used it because it was too big for the truck.
Now I know what to do with it. hehehehe
Thanks!

i did this using some left over plastic i had from putting laminate flooring. I definitely like your idea using the rubber utility mat, and it has a nice tread so things dont slide as much...im going to Target!!!

wait..we dont have those north of the border.

I've considered cutting slits in mine for the tie downs but mine is waterproof right now and I'd like to keep it that way... cool

I'm sure you can get a similar mat at places other than Target (Meijer, Wal-Mart, etc). It was located in the aisle with all the door mats, like the 30 or so different welcome mats that they have laid out. This one, along with about 10 other types of all-purpose mats, were rolled up and near the end of the aisle.

Meanwhile I'd like to do all those that are in that pic...all at once.

After that I'll need 3 beers, a pack of smokes and some ice please.

Awesome - I think I'll be copying this one for the back of my 2nd Gen. That plastic rear gets scratched to all hell and is actually pretty slippery, I think this would work way better than my current method of having a movers blanket thing back there. Nice one.

Edit to add.
Just thought of somethin tho - 2nd Gens don't have the carpet to remove as a template, so I'll be using a big roll of paper to create a template first.

Excellent work!!! Don't know if it could look better....I think someone should come up with a catchy name for this mod as it is certainly deserving of going down in the list of all time great yet simple Xterra mods (Sgt. Lobo mod, etc...)
