This Scion xB somehow pretends to be a Jeep

And maybe tackling the Rubicon?

7w ago


In addition to introducing unique creations, tuning also makes it possible to combine two opposing automotive worlds. Today, a Scion xB tries everything to pretend to be a Jeep Wrangler.If the idea seems ambitious, the owner of the vehicle photographed in Las Vegas clearly hasn't done a lot of work.

Only the front end of the compact MPV has been changed. A modified Wrangler grille was installed at the last minute. Unfortunately, it is too small compared to the width of the xB. As a result, the front end of the vehicle appears incomplete and leaves several parts visible.

This is the case of what appears to be the radiator and part of the chassis of the car. There are also unsealed holes at the ends of the vehicle. The owner nevertheless tried to fill in as many of these openings as possible, since he used aluminium plates to replace the fenders.

This very clumsy assembly is embellished with eye-catching rims. It now remains to be seen whether this creation is finished or a project still in progress. In any case, it would be surprising if this vehicle could tackle the Rubicon Trail like a real Jeep.

  • Not a Jeep. If you’re talking about the Renegade, that’s a rebadged Fiat 500X.

  • That would never ever be allowed on UK roads as it's the very least dangerous to pedestrians.... I'll never understand USA with the Ralph Nader safety laws on one side then the legality of using vehicles with no mud guards (fenders) etc, leaving wheels exposed... So many contradictions!
