I recently purchased an 04 Xterra. I just noticed that the lower radiator mount is almost totally rusted out. Very little rust anyplace else on the vehicle....
I couldn't really see if this mount was welded to the frame or bolted?? Anyone else repaired or replaced this???

Not at all an uncommon problem on Xterra's in the rust belt. I purchased a new support from a local auto body place. I had to buy the entire surround but it was only about $120 bucks. I cut the lower support off and welded it in place of my rusted out one. If welding is an issue, you could easily do the same thing with rivets or even bolts. Some other people have found some more creative ways to make the fix...

Great. Another rusty area to go check on my yankee Xterra.
