Icon's Dodge D200 Replica Showcases Retro Style with Massive Cummins Torque
Unique Truck Combines Classic Styling with Modern Diesel Power
For the 2012 SEMA Show, Icon 4x4 is aiming to one-up last year's creation, a modern take on the classic Ford Bronco. How? By going bigger -- much bigger -- and doing the same thing using the body of the 1965 Dodge D200 pickup and the chassis from a modern Ram 3500.
Big doesn't only describe the physical dimensions of the truck, but also the torque output from its custom-tuned Cummins 5.9-liter diesel engine, which was massaged by the diesel specialists at Banks Power to crank out a seriously stout 975 lb-ft of torque. Another modern-day touch is a 4.5-inch Baja 100 Chase lift kit with Fox remote reservoir shocks.
Icon's D200 rides on 37-inch BF Goodrich tires mounted on Hutchinson 17-inch Monster wheels in a matte black finish. Just so you don't get lonely out on the range or road, the truck features a JL Audio subwoofer and amp with KRC speakers and tweeters for crystal-clear sound. The upholstery features unique free-range bison leather sourced from an American Indian reservation. At this time, the Icon D200 is a one-off custom, but depending on customer demand, could be offered as a series-production model.
