Well I decided to finally start a build thread for the toaster.. I totaled the cavalier January 6, and bought this beauty a week later. 2011 Scion xB Army Rock Metallic, alot of people hate the xB's because of their boxiness and what not, but it made me love it more... Anyways on to the pics..
Picture of how it looked when i purchased it
5% tint all around with a 8 inch sun strip
And today did some work to the rims, and they came out much better than anticipated. After a few months, I plan on getting them powder coated.
Really dont have much more planned for it exterior wise, it will be getting lowered just trying to decide on what setup to go with, Im down to three choices just have to do a little more research. And plan on blacking out the headlights, and upgrading to HID's. I beleive thats about it for now, C&C welcome (:
Driving with tint that dark would get insanely annoying, especially with such a low sun strip to cut and skew your line of sight.... otherwise, neat pick up. Even though I don't particularly like these things, I just can't hate on anyone upgrading from their J lol. It's an upgrade for sure.

its not much fun trying to argue with a wall.
Honestly, its really not that bad, and the strip is perfect with the low seats and angle of the windshield, it is just perfect.
When i lowered my buddies 09 box he chose to go with the TRD springs n struts and it made a world of differance. Other stuff we also did was the trd front strut bar, trd rear sway bar, trd exhaust, trd cold air intake, and a header upgrade, and cross drilled/slotted rotors. yes seems alot of trd but ended up costing him same or less to get these cause we were able to get wholesale.
Love it! Nice toaster!
i love mine, it just has HID's and weathertech floormats and tow hitch for a rear step
I HATE These cars.
Except for yours, those white rims just look amazing on it!
Thanks guys (:
Bluedriftcavy(Eco Swapper) - I plan on getting better sway bars, and strut bar. As for the suspension, I'm in between two sets from KSport, or a set from D2BD, either way it will be slammed (:
Just some more randomness, tinted the foglights and finished the passenger wheels.
If I can work my nerves up to do it, next I will be taking apart the headlights and blacking them out..
Love the color. Brother has an '09 on Ksport Control Pro. I'll put some pics up so you can see. Coils are very comfortable and low to boot.
I like the white wheels. Looking forward to the drop.
Nice looking xB! That color is really interesting (in a good way). We have the same engine, so if you're looking for an intake, I highly recommend the K&N Typhoon CAI (#69-8613TS). I've got one and it makes the 2.4L sound amazing!
FYI TRD parts can be had for dirt cheap on eBay and TRD Sparks

I liked it before you riced the wheels
Curious to see how it looks on coilovers, keep the pics coming.
I liked the wheels better before, but the cars color is a nice one.
Want hub spacers rear disk brackets or trailing arm bushings? Shoot me a PM.
Thanks guys, for the wheels I had used plasti dip so if i do decide to change it back it wont be hard at all. The white is just Bit$% to clean, im assuming since it "rubber" and has more texture than having rims traditionally painted. I am going to be ordering the coilovers tonight
def change back to a color other than white. otherwise not a bad car.
Those look very nice, how low do you plan to go?
Thanks, I'm not sure on how low yet. I know I do want to have a minimal of no wheel gap, but will go from there if I want it any lower
I don't mind the vehicle. But, that color is just not so great. Lol
Made alot of progress today!
Started off with this:
New v.s. Old
Fronts installed but was too low and couldnt completely turn the wheel..
End of the day
Tomorrow I'm planning on adjusting the rear a bit more to even it out, and throwing on my skid plate..
Within a month or so, I plan on rolling and pulling the front fenders a bit to get back to the original 1inch lower..
Original color wheels pls. I think you will be happier with them matching your paint better
Nice drop. This thread makes me want coilovers BAD!
