Curbside Outtake: Scion xB Ramp Van – Jacked Up For A Reason

I was a wee bit perplexed when I first spotted this xB at the curb, with its rear end jacked way up. What the? Folks do all kinds of strange things to xBs, but this was a new one.

Aha! A Rampvan. That makes sense.

It’s been converted for mobility use, which requires jacking up the body in order to still leave room for the gas tank. I’ve seen plenty of FWD vans and now more SUVs, but had not seen an xB. Makes gobs of sense; the roomiest box for its short footprint.
