Seeing how your X is 2WD, it's very possible to give it plenty of offroad potential, but it will still be a lot better to have something with 4WD.
I like to hit the trails off of Reddington Pass, and there are a lot roads where not having 4WD can be dangerous. Mostly because the road is narrow and right off the side of the road is a straight drop down the canyon wall. I rolled my ATV off of one of those not realizing I was going into a cone turn with loose dirt and ended up upside-down in a creek bed, and I'm pretty confident that if I'd had the 4WD engaged I wouldn't have lost traction like I did when it went over.
We have some Dune Buggies in the area that are all caged up that look like a lot of fun. I've never driven one, but I know I definitely would if I had the chance. There are a lot of people in the area that don't like them because they're "loud" and you'd have to be sure not to get one that's too big for your X to haul around.
If you ever want to get your Xterra up an easy trail just to get a feel for how it does on local back roads just let me know. I'd be happy to show you up to Mt. Lemmon the back way - It's a little bumpy but the grade isn't severe at all and a 2WD can handle it no problem. It's really scenic and there are a few spots where you can get a feel for what our mountain trails are like.
