  • Despite the Dodge Nitro having aesthetics on par with Lord Voldemort's, the spiritual successor to the off-road brute, the Jeep Cherokee XJ.

    The Dodge Nitro is a large and capable 4x4 SUV that has a really spacious and comfy interior. We review the Dodge Nitro as a family four wheel drive.

    Time for another silly question. I have a Heat 4x4 and am curious does this unit have off road capability. I am not talking about going rock.

    We all know the difference between metal and plastic. All Dodge Nitro models and packages were equipped with inch polished aluminum wheels wrapped in all-season tires. If I decide to do more off road stuff I am going to look at getting skid plates and removing the front air dam like ScarO did. The Jeep Liberty:

    Sep 23, Messages: I find the 4X4 very capable off road. But there are limitations. The first thing I did was to remove the front air-dam. Then I cut it down and reinstalled it. You can check out this thread, Damn little Dam to see what I did to mine. Having a hitch on the rear helps to protect the bumper, and does give you a recovery point.

    There is no recovery point on the front stock. There are no "real" skid plates stock either. But you can get some. Scar0 , Nov 11, Aug 22, Messages: There are some very "capable" showing pictures knoking around the forum. Oct 6, Messages: I live out in the middle of the woods and I towed my ATV to a remote area on a dirt road. The road I took it to was an old logging road. At one point I had to use 4x4 to get up a gravel hill, and there was a rotten log across the road.

    I was towing about lbs total, and it felt like I wasn't towing anything. I did rip my trailer license plate off by accident and it bottomed out a couple of times, but it survived I would not have been able to do this with the jeep patriot I traded for my Nitro.

    The extra clearance helped as well. I am very impressed with my Nitro.

    Anything a Jeep Liberty can do in 4hi, a Nitro should be able to do. I do not know if the Nitro's transfer case does this.

    Ground clearance would be an issue with the 20's. IMHO, the Nitro would fare better off road with a smaller diameter wheel, and as mentioned in the other posts, the air dam is an issue. The front of the Jeep is designed for an higher attack angle, whereas the whole front end of the Nitro is lower. The Liberty did start to offer the 20's but the package is geared more to luxury, than to "Jeepness".

    It is possible that the factory skid plates from a Liberty would fit, but I have never seen them listed as an option. There is a thread here that says Liberty skid plates fit, so I stand corrected! Any suspension modification accessory made for the Liberty should fit the Nitro. There has been an issue in the past with the drive shaft on the Nitro. It is a hollow aluminum affair, so I do not know how much abuse it is expected to take.

    Since the transfer cases are different and the Nitro has a longer wheel base 2"? Not sure about the front. I wouldn't take mine rock crawling, but I have no fear of going off road if I'm in the mood and happen to come across a place that looks interesting. I want to thank you all for the good advice. This forum is truly an invaluable resource. The Nitro and Libby do not have the same drive shafts lengths front or back.
