WickedbB ’05 Scion XB

 

At first sight, one might think that this Scion XB is the same ride that we featured back in February but it isn’t.  Looking a lot like James’ XB, Colin’s black cherry pearl XB is unique all on its own.

The twin XB from Hawaii nailed the dumped box look with the help of the Forjworks boys.

What’s funny is that the owner Colin decided to begin his project with the first XB platform over the second generation, which is pretty unique. The worst part of this story is that he didn’t even feel for this generation to begin with but after pouring so much time and passion into it, he found himself with another love in his life and soon became a 6 time event winner (’05 PES1, ’08 PES4 & 2010 PES5 best scion, 08 NEO Street 1st scion class, 2010 SPOCOM 1st scion class, 2010 REMIX 1st open class 4dr mild, 1st scion in class).

One never knows what one can achieve until one tries.

I hope folks reading this realize the amount of modifications the average XB needs to go through in order to win a couple of trophies like Colin did.  Here’s a small recap:

Ain’t nothing like a set of 18×8/18×8.5 chrome SSR Vienna Kreis shoes wrapped in a 215/35/18 tires to complete the car styling.

Versatility was the main reason Colin decided to go the route of air because it not only gave him the ability to go low, but also to help him getting out of his driveway to get to work in the morning.

The Forjorks Air Ride favorites include:

  • Forjworks 5mm with -5 degree camber plateAir suspension:
  • Easystreet struts with Cusco camber plates
  • Slam specialties rear bags with FBI brackets
