ICON 4x4 D90

Not sure if everyone has seen this yet, but Johnathan Ward posted some more pics of his D90 build on facebook.

Wow. Normally a fan of icon builds but that is horrible. Hopefully it didn't start as a NAS but I think I know the answer.

I really like the rework on the lower heater duct. much more effective. It looks from the knobs like he has A/C, but i don't see anything under the heater duct, or in the engine compartment. That's a magic trick. Of course, I'm assuming that anyone paying $100k+ for a 4wd is going to get A/C...

That looks like a total POS. The engine bay at least looks decent, but I'm not a fan of non-Rover motors. One of the worst things about that truck is the lack of a front roll cage section, it looks really bad.

The best looking parts are the ones that look closest to standard.

I like it but I like almost all their work - not a surprise that defender purist aren't all fans, same story with the cruiser sites. What is interesting is maybe we have a Badger soft top competition if they mass produce those - looks like a good option in soft tops which is limited for quality ones

The only rocks that thing'll see are the diamonds in jewelry stores on Rodeo Drive.

Twin stick transfer case. AWD is gone. Not necessarily a bad thing...


I agree though, it looks terrible. The venting for the A/C looks good on the dash but thats about it. The cowl looks like it was covered in dryer ducting and that mic down by the center console (I am assuming BT of some sort) is a bit of wishful thinking, I would imagine. It looks like they took their Bronco parts and modified them to fit.

I cannot wait until the matte paint fad ends.

Probably an Atlas (for a $200k budget, darn well better be) and a pair of custom Dynatrac axles. 6 lug bolt pattern which is nice to open up wheel options.

Looks like an American V8 and probably a 4L60e transmission. Pretty standard stuff but dirt reliable. I do like the hood struts.

Looks like all of the other defender "concepts". Which all pretty much look worse than a NAS 90.
