Show Summary

Jonathan Ward of Icon Motors returns and brings his long-awaited re-engineered Ford Bronco.

Featuring a fresh Coyote V8, the new Icon Bronco packs a punch, especially considering its weight. Design-wise, every inch of this Bronco has been thought about. From CNC milled door lock pulls to the customized interior to the radiator hoses, Ward leaves no stone unturned. Icon’s one-off re-engineering somehow finds the perfect balance between rugged and refined.

Tune in and hear Adam drool over Jonathan’s attention to detail and good taste. Has Ward possibly created a car that Adam can’t complain about? Maybe not, but he probably comes as close to that as anyone ever will.

Adam, Sandy and Jonathan Ward sit down to talk about his creations. The ICON line of vintage vehicles. ICON manufactures a FJ40 and a CJ3B with more on the way. The inspiration of all of this came out of Jonathan’s passion for the Toyota Land Cruiser and being the premier supplier of aftermarket parts. The TLC business evolved into ICON where he manufactures a variety of classic 4×4 from the ground up. Ever thing about these vehicles is about functionality and durability and yet they are meticulously detailed in every aspect. Enjoy the show!
