Inside each of the moving assemblies are DJ studio motors pumping the beats in this 2000W Pioneer sound system. Flanking either side of the rear cargo area are a battery of LED lights and disco balls creating a user-controlled light show behind the Plexiglas. To top it all off, the project even has its own backlit dance floor and smoke machine albeit only for one person to shake what they mamma gave ‘em!

In our books, Five Axis can do no wrong. Toyota obviously thinks the same way since they have entrusted him with many Scion and Lexus projects over the years. The BoSoZuKu xB might not have the critical acclaim of say, the Five Axis Project IS-F but we get this project Troy. This build here is a bold statement of how they have been customizing in Japan for decades and how pudda pudda vans patrol around Yokohama to this day.
