Default So what does a Scion xB look like when there is a power outage?

Took some pics of my box once there was finally another power outage. Happens many times throughout the year so I finally got some pix for the eyes:

Did you just lower the front? Looks seriously raked.

No, its actually all stock, but it looks lowered in the front on those off road ones due to the fact that it was a super steep incline and the car was left sitting like that overnight. Yeah, its probably terrible for a car to be left like that for more than a few hours, but whatever.

The rounded curbs drop down about 10 inches and to avoid contact with my bumper, i must come in and leave my driveway at an angle. If I had a normal curb, lowering my box would be first on the priority list.

hahahha, i dont think you understand the significance of this curb problem. My neighborhood has ZERO street parking and therefor requires you to park in your driveway. If I lower just one more inch, ill be trading paint with the pavement and possibly lose my entire bumper altogether!

my curb to get in my drive way is much worse than that and i am dropped 6 inches, you just have to go in and out at an angle, once you get the hang of it, it becomes second nature

well i have no idea what to say to this. Put it this way: if I back up perpendicular to the street, the entire underside of the bumper would hit the top of the curb and probably eject from the body of the car (this is with stock suspension mind you). Even coming in at an angle (which is what I have to do anyway) with a lowered car seems next to impossible, unless I want to experience some serious front end damage.

Add a smoother ramp for your huge curb!

Anything. Lower is better on anything except trucks.

I swear!

and i completely agree. lowering does look much more appealing. i have also thought of that idea, yet we have strict HOA rules that prohibit any obstructions in gutters. As soon as I move out, I am lowering it.

All trucks need a drop. Unless they are already dropped... and then they are good.

ajcadoo... I feel your pain man. You should go with an air suspension so you could raise and lower all you want. Living in SoCal would be the perfect place to kick it with bags.

If you go perpendicular to the driveway and cut your wheel all the way towards the drive way, the tire will be the first thing to hit and then you're good...

You don't know til you try. If someone you know has a lowered B, have them come over and show you how it's done.
