DougTimme I am sure they cannot do a vertical grille due to trademark issues with Chrysler, however from a design standpoint the horizontal pattern in the grille actually makes the grille appear not as "tall"

What are you trying to say there Geoff???

I think it would look better if it had the vertical openings in the grill.

I would never shun you Geoff, or anyone for that matter, or this vehicle. I like all kinds of stuff, I actually get shunned a little because my 2A has an F-head in it. Heck, I wont even shun the JKs with 22s. To each his own as far as I am concerned
And you are right about flattys on the road. I live off of a very busy road, it is getting more and more difficult to take my 2A out. People jusy do not have the patience for a 60 year old vehicle that only goes 45 mph. My next project will be a CJ based street rod with more modern brakes and such.

tjnut ICON makes some very nice product. I have always like the look of the FJ40. I have also considered building one from the ground up (CJ3B that is).

4Jeepn Lets think about this... you want to sell a jeep like jeep.. so you base your design on what is considered the worst looking CJ ever... awsome marketing!

schnutzy that is really really nice. i wonder if icon 4x4 would just want to give me one

bmanrkg3 Wow, kinda brings it all back to where it began and beyond... I really like the direction... but kinda wish it'd look like a jeep...

Icon's "The Dog" - remake of a flat fender

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.
