TLC Icon (with top up).

You can download the Build Sheet from their website. Current orders are estimated for completion dates ranging October-December of 2008. Once the build sheet is configured, Icon has a sales contract to sign, and then first 1/3 payment is due to begin work.

The next progress payment due upon completion of the rolling chassis, another once they begin final body assembly, and then balance upon completion, before transport. Or, if you prefer, Icon now offers competitive financing for Icon.

The Hydra-Matic 4L65 are differentiated primarily because of gearset design. This four-speed automatic transmission has five pinion gears for unrivalled strength. This heavy duty (HD) variant of the 4L60 features more robust parts that provide increased strength.

The Hydra-Matic 4L65 is also characterized by rigid structure and low noise design. These transmissions are state of the art for rear-drive and four-wheel-drive cars and trucks because of their adaptive shift electronic controls and GM’s proprietary Electronic Controlled Capacity Clutch (ECCC) technology. The ECCC allows sophisticated variable clutch slip to dampen engine pulses, providing smooth shifting and driveline feel. The transmissions also take directions from vehicle powertrain control modules to avoid hunting between gears when climbing hills.

Finally, as part of a corporate-wide reduction of environmentally hazardous materials, the use of hexavalent chrome as a material coating is eliminated in the 4L65 transmissions.

Built like a tank. An all-new 5/32” thick 5052 H32 aluminum body captures the original Land Cruiser character but with even greater longevity and resistance to the elements. The body is built by hand, and finished by hand. The hood is new OEM Toyota stamped steel, and the grill is a vintage part.

Body Surface Coatings.
The ICON is finished in a Teflon polyester hybrid super durable Cardinal powder coat originally conceived for exterior industrial architectural uses then developed specifically for the ICON. Each panel is hand finished before assembly, then the underside of the main body and fenders plus inside floor surfaces are coated in a heat cured polyurea coating for reduction of vibration and heat transfer as well as the surface environment. All finished require minimal maintenance with Fantastic / 50% water, never needs waxing and survives many a harsh trail.

The proprietary ICON finish is available in six standard colors (custom color option available);
Rocky Mountain Gray
Mocha Tan
Mayan Sun Orange,
Quartz White
Spruce Green
Slate Blue

The Environment.
We built the icon with the premise that the people who spend the most time in wild places have the greatest interest in preserving them. So the Icon is built with a sense of the environment and recycling responsibly. The Icon emits less harmful emissions in a day full of stop and go driving than the original Land Cruiser did idling in a parking lot. Its modern drive train design provides more than quadruple the Horse Power and double the torque of the original Cruiser while reducing emissions and increasing efficiency thanks to its intelligent gearing, modern fuel injection system, oxygen sensor circuit and sealed fuel system.

We further reduce environmental impact by recycling an older vehicle instead of producing of a new one.
No CFCs or VOCs are emitted in the production of the Icon.

Because each Icon is built by hand, we can assure you that no two will be exactly the same. We are pleased to be able to provide a wide range of options, including but not limited to:

450hp gas engine.
Automatic transmission (gas models only).
276trq turbo diesel (see diesel specification PDF).
Computer controlled mandrel bent stainless steel exhaust system.
Aircraft ceramic exhaust system coating. Protects the system and extends its service life,
while enhancing exhaust tone.
Machine-turned, damasked dash panel set.
Hand tailored soft top and removable upper half doors.
Heated front seats.
Removable rear two passenger seat.
Chilewich floor mats & seating textiles.
Various audio packages (AM/FM/CD/IPOD/GPS/Satellite radio/amp & bass).
Warn Winch and recovery gear.
Powertank compressed CO2 tank system for general utility (airing up rafts, tires, tools).
5.0:1 transfer case low range gearing.

Special design needs or requests invited.

The Icon is built by hand in California by dedicated craftsmen in very low volume.
Production is limited to 24 units each year.
