Every once in a while, when the stars align and the sun and moon are in the right posistion, good things occur. That is precisely what happened to resident SR Graphic Artist and Lowfive owner Dan aka Doughboy. After having a few conversations with the gang over at Fatlace and Slammed Society, it was decided to do a small feature on his whip! Pictures provided by…yours truly!
Doughboy has put extensive work in to his xB. Being a 2008 RS Edition didnt stop his need to alter almost every aspect of the already factory modified vehicle. After rendering quite a few concept drawings a la Chip Foose style (seriously lol) the final concept was decided upon and work began.
A mod that took some thought and fabrication were the 2011 Scion xB front and rear bumpers that were affixed to the 2008 body and the pre production Rado Edition Lip kit that was promptly molded to them, 2011 xB tailights and head lights were also added to complete the conversion. Easy Street airride with a digital controller was the suspension of choice and the xB now sits on MMR HR4 19*8 wheels with a +35 off set for that perfect flush stance.
Inside, no corners were cut. The digital air ride controller is molded into the sueded headliner. Painted pillars and 5 axis leather seats add an air of luxury to the xB. In the back a custom speaker box that shows off the paint matched air tank and holds the subs and amps takes up the entire trunk area. On each side of the speaker, a siganture angry doughboy is etched in to frosted plexiglass and lit up from behind.
Overall, this is one clean ass Scion and has already taken several best of show and best of class trophies home.
