It may sound ghetto but, I once made a skid plate for a '97 Outback from the back of an old stove. I drilled holes where the existing mounting holes were for the missing plastic skid plate. It wasn't pretty but nobody actually sees it except when it's being worked on up on a hoist.
I go up and down some pretty rough service roads and roads to remote boat launches. I've never had an issue with the X-Trail. Some gnarly tires would be nice but the cost is not justified considering how seldom I do it.
