Those Icon's run about $150k. And up from there.

I mean, it's a nice Bronco but that's "G-wagen + Maserati" money.

Damn, I had no idea they were that expensive. No wonder why you can't find a price ANYWHERE on their website.



A G63 AMG starts at $135k. Wow.

High COG and narrow wheelbase is a rollover waiting to happen. Regardless, that's an awesome vee-hickle!

Everything ICON is stupid expensive...but they are all 100% custom done to order. They just did a one off 1965 Dodge D200 w/ a 5.9 Cummins transplant putting 975lb-ft tq to all four wheels. Pretty sure the customer paid $200,000+ for the entire build. They also do Toyota FJ's that are badass.

If I'm spending $100K+ on a stupid Dodge, I'm getting this:



Legacy Power Wagons - lots of ways to spend your extra $

Yeah, I saw those debuted at SEMA this year too...pretty sweet rides. Though that's too nice of a paint job for any offroading, lol.

If you're worried about MPG you are looking at entirely the wrong type of vehicle.

What would that be? And how many miles? Ever been rebuilt? You need to have it looked over by a reputable mechanic first. If you're planning on daily driving it...AC is a must...if it's going to be a toy, then it's not a must, but you're still going to sweat your balls off in the Summer months lol. Very clean looking rig though.

IIRC, those had a 289 or 302. I think they only put the 351W in newer ones(>1985)
