Icon CJ3B Old School
From ICON press: It is written “ What is past is prologue”; with that in mind, we would like to announce our new ICON project, the ICON CJ3B. It’s nickname has become “The Dog”, i.e. … best friend! Just as current ICON FJ models trace their heritage to the vintage Land Cruiser, “The ICON Dog” is inspired by the Willys CJ3B. Immediately following WWII, the civilian flat fender Willys was quickly covering terrain around the world.
The ICON CJ3B will maintain the fundamental design ethics of simplicity, value and utility infused in the original. Consistent with the ICON tradition, we have designed our own state of the art chassis, based on 2”x4” mandrel bent steel rails featuring coil over suspension. The drivetrain is a highly efficient variable valve timing GM Ecotec 2.4 fuel injected four cylinder motor, producing over 200HP and an estimated 28MPG. Power is delivered through an Aisin- Warner AX15 five speed transmission and NP231 transfer case to modified production Jeep Rubicon axles with four wheel disc brakes and locking differentials. Variable ratio power steering is standard, as are 31” tires with optional 33” tires for more aggressive uses.
The ICON CJ3B is all business and utility; with a significantly reduced wheelbase and vehicle weight (when compared to other ICON Models). The focus is on pure utility and agility with all of the quality you have come to expect in an ICON. With all systems built to the highest standards, “The Dog” is bound to find it’s way into the hearts and homes of clients around the world who are looking for a simple, bespoke, rugged utility vehicle.
