I saw this at SEMA, but thought I'd make a new post about just this vehicle. It's an interesting idea. Icon 4x4
has been making brand new FJ40s for several years now. They're nice, and they're insanely expensive ($95,000 and up).
Now, they're making a brand new CJ3 vehicle. They're calling it "The Dog."
You can read about it here
, at Jalopnik.
Still incredibly expensive- something like 50 large or more.
But very, very cool. Basically, a CJ3b body with coils and 4-link suspension, new disc brakes, and a high-powered but lightweight 4 cylinder turbo.
In other words, a brand new, up-to-date vehicle but with the looks of something very old school. A "Full Metal Dash" as someone here once called them.
DougTimme would probably shun me, but I like this. FlatFenders aren't really all that drivable in traffic, and this would be. But I might be very tempted to get a good one and build this myself.
