The ILLBOKS

It's been a while since I've navigated this forum, joined when I first picked up my 05 xb few years ago. I know this place has been a ghost town since FB pages took over, but I'm going to start a build thread to show what I've done and keep it updated with the new new.

I bought my XB in 2012 in Oakland with 88k miles, completely stock and a few dings here and there but overall in good shape. It's 2016 now, closing in on 2017 and I still love this thing! Even bought a second one last year, haha!

I use this car as a daily, and work vehicle. I've got two kids and a wife, so I haven't been able to blow a whole lotta money into it, but I've been slowly working on it since I've owned it.

The very first thing I did when I got it was pull the hubcaps off, then upgraded the head unit(stereo) and added a 8" subwoofer under the passenger seat. Needing a little more cargo space I picked up a Yakima roof rack and Rage basket. And that's how it stayed for the first year, until I finished paying it off.

I joined this club during that year, lurking in the background, reading up on builds, mods, repairs, etc. I knew I'd be going further with my XB in the future, I've been obsessed with custom cars since I was a kid. Where to take it though? I love all kinds of styles, but have been into minitrucks and riding low since the early 90's. Always dreamed of building one, with air suspension, clean shaven and something that stuck out as original. Just never had the money or resources to make it happen, so I did everything myself within my ability. I never got to finish any of my minitrucks, but I'm determined to get this XB done, no matter how long it takes.

Well, there's a little of my back ground, I'll be updating this thread with photos of all the mods and upgrades I've done so far, need to go dig through my archives to get some pics.

Polar white is so nice when it's done right. Really like the look of the gray camo on the fairing and hood.

Would there be a fitment problem with 205 x 45 on a 16x8.5 ??? I have some Work Ryver wheels that are 16 x 7.5 with 205 40 it's not a good setup, their isn't much tire under the wheel.
I should have bought 205 45.

I switched to 18x7.5 wheels on mine with 215/35/18 tires. Mostly due to my air ride, i needed my wheels to be able to tuck into the wheel well and clear my fenders. The top of my fender sit 2 inches past the lip of my wheels when layed out.
