“Our Old School Edition builds present a unique aesthetic that many of our clients really respond strongly to these days,” comments ICON Founder and CEO Jonathan Ward. “With people spending a lot more time close to home, a lot of our owners are taking more time to adventure in our vehicles, which really resonates with us. Transportation has always presented the prospect of freedom, and seeing our trucks come off the line and hearing these fantastic stories about how they are being used has been incredibly rewarding. Taking a truck like this 1972 rig, restoring, rebuilding it, and then releasing it back into the wild to be used as it was intended is what ICON 4×4 is all about.”
