Classic. It's works better with hydraulics too. Slam the truck to the ground!

The dash on this 90 is better than the one in the 110, so much work in the metal that is completely lost in the finished product on both. Looked better raw. Some proportions are off on the end grab handle and if it was dialed in more with a bit more early prototyping it would have been there I think. I see this one is based off my friend's sketches, the 110 is most likely a labor reduced version of it.

The one part or two parts I like are the bonnet/hood lifts.

Hmmm. Do I really need to make my roundtoitlist longer?

Looks like the rear PTO cover is custom. Maybe some different gearing in there?

I am more impressed after the video. There are a bunch of small items/details that make sense after the reason why. I like the rear bumper setup after seeing how it is opened and seeing it at different angles.

I still don't like the steering shaft/ignition and not all that crazy about the dash. But overall a crazy nice build. I bet it drives very very nicely.

He seems mildly more interested than he did with the 90. Probably still can't believe someone is insane enough to replace parts at ridiculous cost.

All cute enough but he does not really have much of an eye for good looking design. They need to hire a much better stylist.

Thumbs down

...yup, he is just a guy with an opinion...
I'm impressed with the drive train, but not with the jewelry...nor his smugness
I'd take an ECR Defender over this any day..

I saw in ICON FJ a few years ago. I walked out to my Defender (in a parking lot) and the ICON was parked next to me. The owner wanted to know about my Defender. I looked over the FJ, it was nice, but I wouldn't pay that kind of coin for it. I looked in the engine bay, underneath it, it was so so.
Funny, the owner mentioned how he had a Defender like mine and regrets getting rid of it.
For what he paid for that ICON, he could have had a sweet Defender...

I can't stand the bumper or the dash, or the style of the black leather seats. But I do like the truck as a whole. The color and overall finish is a little too nice.

Where can I source the mil-spec connectors?
And does ICON sell their remade hinges, door handles, etc...?

Although..... $$$$!

On the 90 he said he was buying off the shelf hinges. I assume he did here as well.

Alot of it is pretty nice but the door cards, dash, trans tunnel, and bumpers all look like shit. He needs to hire somebody with some aesthetic expertise.

He said he just took the bumper he'd already produced for the Bronco and just changed the mounting points. I thought the door handles were pretty cool.
