Icon CJ3B

I saw this photo gallery for the Icon CJ3B and I thought I would share. Unbelievably cool build.

"It is the embodiment of the idea of a CJ3B, meticulously constructed from modern mechanicalsócut-down Dana 44 axles from the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, Fox remote-reservoir coil-over shocks at all four corners (for two feet of wheel travel), four-wheel disc brakes, and a 210-hp, GM 2.4-liter Ecotec fouróalong with detailing that is obsessively industrial chic."























That things almost too hot to get muddy... Almost.

Yeah, this has been brought up on the Jeepforum previously. I believe the consensus opinion is that it looks nice, but it's too expensive for us. I agree with it too.

I would have to swap the correct grille on it, wonder what the sticker price on that is.


And yes, I understand Jeep doesn't build it and that's why the grille is different. I just need to see those 7 slots.

That is ludicrous. I can find one of these on CL or fleaBay or the like for a couple grand, then get the crate from GM for $5K, $2K in axles and done. I can't even touch $80K and I will have a way better rig than what Icon is selling.


But it is still I love it but ain't no way it costs that much to make. Oh well I ain't mad. I can just build it cheaper all I'm sayin.

Though I am sure Icon builds trucks that are plenty capable, they aren't mass producing them, and they aren't building for the average joe like us. they are building for the guy who has more money than he knows what to do with who wants to just write a check and jump in an go, and "look cool" Not saying I would turn down one of their rigs, but short of winning the lotto, I couldn't afford one thats for sure.

2012 JKU Black, Soft Top. Next mods are a 2.5" lift, 35" Tires, and either 4.10 or 4.56 gears.

I would never pay that if I had it, it's just interesting to see complete overhaul mods, especially if they had an unlimited budget to work with. I'm just looking for cool ideas I can replicate on my limited budget.

I'm looking for ingenuity.

Like this one-of-a-kind SEMA beauty that went for $55,000 at a recent Barrett-Jackson auction. If I had more $ then to know what to do with, I'd search out a build like this, or better yet just build my own.

From what I've previously read, by design an original 7-slot grill will screw into place. Icon can't do it for legal reasons of course. I think if you provide the grill they'll powder coat it to match the rest of the vehicle. All you have to do is install it.

They also make a Land Cruiser and recently started building original Broncos. All with the insane attention to detail as the CJ.
