    If you have a factory bumper there should be plastic brackets in it to mount fog lights. You will will just need to pop or cut the plugs out of the bumper. If you are lucky their might be wires already ran for the fog lights (not all xterras have them ran from factory). If the wires are there then you can change the stock for the lights to one made for fog lights if not then you will have to run wires and either put them on a switch or figure out how to wire them up to a stock.

    Where are you wanting to mount them at? If in stock fog light location take the fog lights out and put the pods in and wire it up. If somewhere else lay out where you want to put them mark your holes drill the holes bolt them on wire them up.

    So what you're mean is to juss drill a hole in the top of the foglight housing? Will that be sturdy?

    Sorry, didn't notice that you have a first generation X. The comment below was meant for a gen 2, but maybe you have similar attachment points for the stock fog lights...

    The plastic bumper cover has two attachment points for each of the stock fog lights. Maybe you can use them to mount the new lights, but you'll probably have to build your own bracket to fit. Here are some photos:
