Absolutely! With 34 inch mud swamper tires! I did it to mine the second I took delivery from the delivery truck at the dealer...

I wasn't being serious...I was being ironic...the car cost $50k new...

I am sure you could find a way to make it work, but I wouldn't as the car doesn't have a strong enough drive train for real off roading. I would take the $4 or $5k this might cost to do right and get a beater jeep/Cherokee from the mid 90s. Those are so much fun....plus you have proper 4lo for mud and trail crawling.

If you must ...get an old 200 jeep cherokee (one of the jeeps I had that worked well). At most with an X3 I would get a brush guard and skid plate just for the concrete jungle.
