He probably had a stack of 60s in stock from his other builds. Makes sense to pick one main axle and stick with it for everything. I think he mentioned a 44 front axle?

Icon is not in the business of building anything sensible. Icon is in the image business, building and selling image vehicles. (Icons) People who buy these (generally I am guessing) have no idea what is under them, and probably don't even care. They see "laser cut" "Heavy Duty", whatever else, and its good enough for them. Jeep Toyota LandRover If Icon doesn't build new Icons than their clientele will be passing them by! whats next? -Scout perhaps? Willys? Suburban?

They already have a 'line' of rat rods (desert sun faded paint with solid bodies and modern running gear/ powertrains).

Thanks Jeff. That's...interesting.

I like the Atlas transfer cases, but on a rover, I think the real advantage of it over an LT230 is being able to get an 11.7:1 low range.

The Icon build doesn't look like it's meant to be a rock crawler, so I personally don't see a reason why one would spec an Atlas over the LT230 except for convenience. I find this confusing, then, because Icon spend a huge amount of effort on cosmetics...why not do some really fascinating stuff with the driveline?

I think the mud was applied with a paint brush roller. Seriously.
